Bangkok Chinatown, Thailand

Bangkok Chinatown located at almost center of Bangkok city. Chinatown is a charming collection of ramshackle shop houses, narrow streets, colorful temples and fashionable new restaurants and bars. Start from the night at Tang Jai Yoo, a traditional Chinese restaurant so famed for its suckling pig that celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain has sampled it. If you’re craving European cuisine instead, tasty Mediterranean-inspired fare and strong cocktails can be found nearby at Seven Spoons Restaurant, a local favorite for its reasonable prices. Once dinner’s done wander on to Teens of Thailand, a dubious-sounding gin bar discreetly hidden behind a heavy door. When you’re ready for live music, head across the road to Tep Bar, another drinking hole which makes clever use of an atmospheric chophouse. The extensive drinks menu includes flavored ya dong (local whiskey) shots and cocktails.
