To refuel, grab a cup of coffee and snack at a 100-year-old cafe on Phat Sai Road before you head to the aromatic streets of a popular nighttime food bazaar. Pick and choose from street grills to sit-down restaurants and get a delicious taste—from the familiar to the unusual—of what Chinatown has to offer.

After dinner, stroll through the Saphan Phut night market and the Talat Pak Khlong fruit and vegetable market, perusing merchant stands for souvenirs and colorful backdrops for photos of your Chinatown adventure.
