Bangkok's Chinatown is one of the world's best, a raucous and bustling place, and of course there are plenty fantastic spots to sample delectable Chinese meals. The emphasis is on Tsewchao Chinese, as this is where most of the Thai Chinese come from, with all the local southern Chinese favorites such as shark's fin soup or roast suckling pig part of most menus. Places like Hua Seng Hong are packed every night and as authentic as you can get with their goose feet and roast duck plates, as are nearby favourites T&K Seafood, and Tang Jai Yoo. Even better than the big establishments are the little holes in the wall, like Hong Teong Long, whose xialongbao dumplings are some of the best in town, if not on the planet, and worth joining the queue for. For something more upmarket, why not try some of the classiest joints in town, like renowned dumpling masters Din Tai Fung, the Mandarin Oriental's China House or the Banyan Tree's Bai Yun, where you can dig into superb Cantonese cuisine with great city panoramas. Whether you want to join the locals at Prachak, where they have been serving duck noodles for over a century, or sit with celebrities in an air conditioned grand ballroom, the choice is yours, but one thing is for sure, Bangkok knows what top ten Chinese means.
