The Hidden Chinatown (Private Trip)

Discover the hidden Thai - Chinese neighbourhood right in the heart of Bangkok

About this Activity

While Talad Noi (literal translation: ‘little market’) may lack in size, it can easily redeem itself through the neighbourhood’s personality and charm! Explore Chinatown's hidden community and travel back in time to an early 20th century Bangkok!

Background Info:

Talad Noi (aka little market) is a small, bustling yet half-forgotten neighborhood nestled within the giant Chinatown district of Bangkok. Due to recent over-development of buildings and infrastructure throughout the city, Talad Noi has become one of the last traditional communities still surviving in Bangkok to this day.
