Bye Bye Chinatown [ Walking Tour ]

We are out and about again for an exploration walk, crossing Bangkok's Chinese quarters and ancient trading districts from the eastern fringes to the west to raise awareness on the changing landscape of Chinatown where investors are now zeroing in to redevelop the area. If nothing happens there will be massive loss of our city's old quarters and their heritage which has already become evident. If you're interested in urban development and urban adventures, this one is for you. 

This walk is organized in collaboration with bangkokvanguards and aims to raise awareness on the changing landscape of Bangkok's Chinatown area.

Please keep in mind that there's a lot of walking involved so wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella.
