Beautiful Catholic Church to visit. Once visited by St John Paul II (Pope John Paul II). You'll fine peace of mind when inside. It's a feeling you'll know yourself when you're there. Check it out.

This cathedral is European in style. It is a nice, quiet, restful place to relax in the midst of the bustlign city. It is right near the river. Mass in English is offered at 10:00 each Sunday

We went to Assumption Cathedral on Friday afternoon. We parked our car at Mandarin Oriental hotel. We walked to the church in five minutes. The church is peaceful and beautiful. The front ceiling is wonderful.

I attended the English Sunday mass at Assumption Cathedral. While they have only one schedule for English mass on Sundays (10am), the atmosphere was very sacred and welcoming.

Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is
Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During
the day, the main street and its small alleyways are
filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and
flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and
all-day markets. The real action, however, happens
after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and
tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast
