China Town

Chinatown of Bangkok started when the Chinese merchants moved in 1780s after vacating the land where the Grand Palace now stands.

In 1863, King Mongkut commanded the construction of New Road (or Charoen Krung Road) which runs over six kilometers from the Royal Palace till it drops straight into the Chao Phraya River, just south of Krung Thep Bridge now. The Chinatown expanded along Charoen Krung, Krung Kasem and the third road, the Yaowarat Road which was built between Charoen Krung and Sampeng.

gate to China Town once was the famous
movie theatre callled "Odeon".
