Chinatown Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Chinatown

If you're looking for bars and clubs in Chinatown, you're in the wrong part of town. Night-time activities here are limited to dining experiences and, for the daring, a shot of snake wine perhaps. Close by is Khao San Road though, where you can shake your booty to heart's content.

For more nightlife alternatives, a short Skytrain (BTS) ride is all it takes to get to the city's hottest nightlife spots like Silom and Sukhumvit. Also have a look in our Bangkok Nightlife Areas for more ideas.

Although electrifying clubs are a bit thin on the ground, there are alternative options to drinking and dancing when in Chinatown.

Snake Tonic

Its popularity as health food has been declining recently, as traditions fall by the wayside, but the Chinese snake tonic can still be found in the middle of Soi Phadung Dao. An old man who sets up shop about 300 meters from the eastern end of Yaowarat Rd, is reputed to be able to brew any concoction to cure what ails you from the blood and meat of snakes. If you don’t find him here, then Khlong Toey Market is your next bet.
