After a lunch we decided to explore China town. While initially China Town in Bangkok might not sound like an authentic experience, the fact is, Thai Chinese are the largest minority group in Thailand and the largest overseas Chinese community in the world accounting for about 10 million people. If you want to experience authentic environment, great street food, a culture chock and quality shopping of rare products, you have to head to the China Town. The variety of street food offered here, even during the Covid times, is astonishing. Small cozy cafes and beautifully designed restaurants are the new hipster spots and have become extremely popular by photography professionals and Instagram loving kiddos. Strolling around and checking shops selling gem stones, Chinese medicine, herbs, spices and tea is a must when traveling to Bangkok. Most of those shops are owned by families for generations. It's a mecca of Chinese medicine and there are many Chinese Traditional Medicine clinics located here. The finest and the most high-quality green and black tea can be found only in China Town. Small hidden temples and street cafes can be found on every small street so you barely need a map, just stroll around and enjoy the daily life of people living there. It's a fascinating mix of two cultures: Thai and Chinese. You will surely experience unique vibrant colors, smells and hustle and bustle. Photo: Oksana Petersen
