Areas of Bangkok
Sampeng & Phahurat:
Bangkok's oldest residential and business district. It's a fascinating area to explore if you don't mind navigating the narrow and often congested streets. Although buses and taxis are abundantly available, it's an area best seen on foot.
One of the most fascinating districts in Bangkok. It's noisy and exhilarating. It's an area of dark laneways and traffic-choked roads, of bright, cheap markets and enticing food stalls Chinatown offers the visitor an astonishing array of jewellery, hardware, wholesale food, and automotive and fabric shops - nearly always at cheaper prices than anywhere else in Bangkok.
On the edge of Chinatown, Phahurat has a wide variety of Indian goods available in this small area, ranging from an astonishing array of silks to Thai shoulder bags. If you're not much of a wheeler and dealer head down any of the little alleys into the 'bowels' of this area for a relatively more sedate experience. You'll find foodstuffs, household items and a thriving culture that might ordinarily pass by unnoticed.
