Eating at Yaowarat area (China Town)

china_townEstablished in the reign of King Rama V in 1891, Yaowarat was given its name by His Majesty the King. The word ''Yaowarat'' implies the road is marked for a time when the King acceded to the throne at the age of 15 as a young King of Siam.

Yaowarat Road is populated by Chinese-Thai citizens, famous for being the China town of Thailand. Both sides of the road and surrounding areas characterize the business centers of the city. The Chinese-Thai resident in Yaowarat have been preserving their cultures and tradition without losing their identities especially for their Chinese food.
