Walking Through China Town

Share it Please

Bangkok Thailand China Town - Center for Spiritual Living, Santa Rosa "Kingdom Within Tour" 2009 - Bangkok's vibrant Chinatown district runs along Yaowarat Road from Odeon Circle, where a huge Chinese gate marks the entrance.

Chinatown is an easy place to explore on foot, and in fact there really isn't any other way. The Chinese community in Bangkok pre-dates the founding of the Thai capital where the grand palace is today - it was originally a community of Chinese traders. When King Rama I decided to establish the capital on the site of the village of Bangkok, he asked the traders to move. They settled to the east of the new city, along the river. In 1902, the community petitioned the king for a larger road. Yaowarat Road was built as a result, and the celebration of the road's 111th birthday was the highlight of Chinatown's 2003 Chinese New Year celebration.

I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well!
