Tour description provided by Viator
Discover the old and new Bangkok, stop for a coffee at a 100 year-old cafe and enjoy grilled seafood from the market street stalls on this Chinatown and Night Market small group tour. From hundreds of street stalls to the finest of Chinese restaurants there's plenty to tempt your taste buds. Stroll past market stalls filled with colorful flowers and plenty of bargains. Feel the vibe and watch Chinatown come alive at night.
Your guided evening tour begins along Ratchawong Pier on the Chao Praya River. Step back in time to the old markets in Yaowarat, located in the heart of the vibrant Chinatown district. The land that now occupies the Grand Palace once belonged to Chinese traders. When King Rama I moved the capital from Thonburi to Bangkok over 200 years ago, the community was asked to move and the region became the capital of the Kingdom of Siam.
Continue from the pier and walk along Song Wat Road, which is bordered by old business buildings and warehouses - most of which are still operating today. See Wat Traimit Temple that houses a large seated Buddha and the Chinese Museum which preserves the history of the Chinese in Thailand. You'll stop at a 100 year-old coffee shop on Pha Sai Road. Relax and enjoy coffee and a snack while you take in the atmosphere.
Walk to Issarnuparb Road and a market specializing in Chinese religious products, fresh food including seafood. In the evening Yaowaraj Road becomes a sea of street stalls, collectively becoming one large food bazaar. The food options range from street stalls to the finest Chinese restaurants. You'll enjoy some delicious charcoal grilled seafood from one of these street stalls.
After dinner you'll walk to Saphan Put Night Market, where you'll find a vast array of clothes, shoes, bags, accessories, second hand collections and antiques on sale. You'll have plenty of opportunity to shop!
Your Chinatown and Night Market tour concludes at Pakklong Talad ("talad" meaning market), the largest wholesale flower and vegetable market in Bangkok. You will be amazed by the amount of flowers, all in different colors and shades overflowing in the streets.
