This place is huge and you can get lost easily in very small streets. I recommend to get a map or charge your phone. You can find there everything you can imagine. From food to all little decorations.

Unless you want to buy bulk Chinese product rather go elsewhere as Bangkok has so much to offer. Chinese food can be found at all major shopping malls.

I visited this place around 7 in the evening.. it was jam packed with a lot of people. Street food everywhere, cheap and it was fun to see the place. The food was delicious. Pad Thai to be precise.

flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and
all-day markets. The real action, however, happens

tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast

We went in the morning and all the stalls were there. As it was just before the Chinese new year the place was bustling with activity.
