Yaowarat Road (Thaiถนนเยาวราช) in Samphanthawong district is home to Bangkok's Chinatown, which is centred on Sam Pheng Lane (ซอยสำเพ็ง numbered as Soi Wanit 1.) Chinatown's Sam Pheng Market (ตลาดสำเพ็ง) is an old business centre noted for a post-WW II visit by the young king Ananda Mahidol.[1] Modern Chinatown now covers a large area around Yaowarat and Charoen Krung Road. There are many small streets and alleys full of shops and vendors selling all types of goods. It has been the main centre for trading by the Chinese community since they moved from their old site some 200 years ago to make way for the construction of Wat Phra Kaew, the Grand Palace. Nearby is the Phahurat or Indian market, and the area is bordered by the Chao Phraya River to the south. Yaowarat Road is also well known for its sheer variety of food, and at night turns into a large "food street" that draws tourists and locals from all over the city. Wikipedia
