Chinese immigrants relocated to the Chinatown area from the old capital, Rattanakosin, in the 1700‘s, creating Bangkok’s first commercial district. Today, Chinatown remains as one of Bangkok’s most vibrant neighborhoods with its maze of shops, street vendors, apothecaries and restaurants.
Chinatown provides easy access to historic sites such as the Grand Palace and Wat Arun in the old part of the city as well as Bangkok’s Shopping and Central Business Districts. The Ratchawong Pier is within a 10 minute walk from the Grand China Hotel, providing a picturesque ride down the legendry Chao Praya River.
