Chinese new year is near, and this year celebrated on 5 – 6 February 2019. And as usual, Bangkok already prepare to welcome this festive season. So if you’re curious to find out cool places to enjoy CNY, we have the clue for you.

CHINATOWN ►► Well, impossible to miss this place to celebrate Chinese New Year. Yaowarat Road literally will be closed for 2 days to hold the parade and too many stalls of people selling Chinese foods and another accessories. Event will be going from noon to midnight. Going here is easy, take a walk from MRT Hualamphong, or taxi/grab for easier trip.

This what we got from 2018 Chinese New Year in Chinatown, Bangkok. And they will have similar festival this year.
