Your guided evening tour begins along Ratchawong Pier on the Chao Praya River. Step back in time to the old markets in Yaowarat, located in the heart of the vibrant Chinatown district. The original Chinese citizens were traders living in the village of Bangkok before it became the capital of the Kingdom of Siam. The land that now occupies the Grand Palace belonged to the traders.
