Trok Issaranuphap is vintage Bangkok, and we don't mean shopping malls or glitzy highrises. Trok Issaranuphap is a lane connecting Charoen Krung Road and Yaowarat, the main thoroughfares in Chinatown, starting just south of the Mangkon Kamalawat Temple. This narrow alleyway contains a wonderful wet market and just about every type of food one can imagine in Chinatown. There are plenty of take out opportunities here, and the small lane is one tremendous shopping and photo op spot. It might be worth it to go through here with a Thai guide, just to be able to know what all the strange products and foods are available for sale. Every type of crispy pork skin seems to have made its way to this spot, and there are plenty of other stalls and shops besides just food. The lane is very atmospheric, and a real ode to what Chinatown is all about.
- Chinatown/Yaowarat's Best Attractions: "The best way to find this tiny lane is to come from Wat Mangkon Kamalawat Temple, cross the street (Charoen Krung), and take the next right into the hidden alleyway."
- Best for Chinatown/Yaowarat's Best Attractions Because: For a trip into the heart of Chinatown, Trok Issaranuphap is a highly recommended stroll.
