Chinatown

Where to stay: Chinatown

While most travellers hit Chinatown on a day excursion, anyone wanting to really sink their teeth into the food scene will find some excellent places to stay. Check into one of the hotels along Yaowarat Road if you want the lion’s share of Chinatown’s street food at your fingertips. Try the Riverfront or Talad Noi for a quieter atmosphere within walking distance of Yaowarat. You’ll also find several places to stay in the immediate vicinity of Hualamphong Rail Station.

Riverfront

Location summary: One of our favourite places to stay in Bangkok is hidden behind a temple along the riverfront, just off atmospheric Song Wat Road and within easy walking distance of Ratchawong Pier.

Talad Noi

Squeezed between central Chinatown to the north, the Chao Phraya River to the west, Hualamphong Station in the east and the old European quarter to the south, Talad Noi is often overlooked despite a picturesque atmosphere and convenient location. Some cool art galleries and bars have popped up here in recent years.
