We got the boat to the mall and walked to the Gurdwara. It took an hour to walk to the Gurdwara, which passes through China Town. Yaowarat Road in Samphanthawong district is home to Bangkok’s Chinatown, which is centred on Sam Pheng Lane Chinatown’s Sam Peng Market is an old business centre noted for a post-WW II visit by the young king Ananda Mahidol. 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. Nearby Phahurat or Indian market. Yaowarat Road is also famous for many varieties of food, and it becomes a “food street” at night.

Chinatown Gate is a Chinese style gate at Odean Circle on the east end of Yaowarat Road, the main road through Samphathawong, the Chinatown district of Bangkok. The gate is often called Odean Gate after the Odean cinema which used to stand nearby. It was built as part of the celebrations of King Bhumibol Adulyadejs 72s birthday. The words on the gate says “Sheng Shou Wu Jiang”, which translate as “Long Live the King”.

Afterwards we went for dinnner, I asked a Sikh guy on the street for directions to the nearest vegetarian restaurant. As we were in a mainly Indian area you can expect to find many Indian vegetarian restaurants. Unfortunately they are lacking in basic cleanliness!!! What is it about Indians are they allergic to basic hygiene standards!!!

Sangeet ate at

Saravana Bhavan
92 10 11 Soi Putha Osot Sreepaya,
T: +66-87-3316741

I did not like the look of this restaurant so did not eat here, Sangeet ordered a dosa. Afterwards we walked back to the pier where the Hilton boat picked us up……

By now I am desperate to have my clothes washed so I created a washing machine
