Loved everything about this slice of China in the midst of Bangkok, so beautifully designed and located by the riverside. Worth spending an entire evening here, if you don't have the luxury of spending an entire day - you could even combine this with your Chinatown visit and relax here, besides shop, eat, drink and appreciate art installations. Easily accessible by the Tourist Boat and oh, a great spot for your 'gram!

It's a sort of little museum, but also has stores and places to eat. I enjoyed the visit here, even though it was a bit hard to get here since most taxi drivers don't know where it is yet
