The place served as a residence to royalty up until the year of 1925. Afterwards, the palace was used for special ceremonies only.


China Town

The Chinatown is known as the Yaowarat by the locals here. The Chinatown in Thailand is home to the biggest community of the Chinese. This community took over and held a great position in the trade that existed between the town of Siam and China. This trade route started during the era of King Rama I. Chinatown today holds the position of having the largest gold trade centre and an epic place for food fanatics. Chinatown has two sides to it. If you go during the daytime, you can check out all the stores selling herbs, fruits, gold, and restaurants specialising in Chinese food. If you are planning to visit after dusk, Chinatown transforms into an ideal food destination where a countless number of food trucks arrive to marvel you with a heavenly collection of foodstuff.
