6. Chinatown

Pak Klong Talad, the wholesale flower market that clogs several blocks on the northern edge of Chinatown, is a cavalcade of paper-swathed lilies, orchids and birds of paradise in an astounding spectrum. If hunger strikes, head back to the main strip of Yaowarat Road for sidewalk dining on the world's best crab fried rice at Rut and Lek Seafood, on the corner of Yaowarat and Soi Texas.
