It’s not just the food that is great, but the atmosphere too as thousands of people take to the streets, finding a food vendor serving their favorite dish. Behind the rows of hawkers are displays of dazzling lights, advertising everything from gold to herbal remedies and more cuisine. The energy that oozes from its endless rows of shophouses along the one kilometer strip is immense.
Our experience introduces guests to Chinatown with a morning stroll to see the infectious sights and sounds and sample a traditional Yum Char early light lunch – which involves drinking Chinese tea and eating dim sum dishes. “Yum Cha” in Cantonese Chinese literally means “drink tea” and taste a variety of small dishes. These include steamed buns, assorted dumplings and rice noodle rolls containing a range of ingredients including beef, chicken, pork, prawns and vegetarian delights.
This is a great opportunity to interact with the heart and soul of the Chinese community in Thailand and should not be missed.
