Today is the second day of the Year of Ox! 🙂 I walked through Yaowarat Road. I took photo here and want to share it! 🙂 People are still celebrating the new year here and were wearing red and traditional clothes.
Yaowarat Road is the main artery of Bangkok’s Chinatown.
The Chinese came here after Rama I moved the capital of the Kingdom of Thailand.
The Chinese settled down on the river bank so they easily could operate trades between Bangkok and China.
In 1891, King Rama V ordered the construction of many big roads in Bangkok, including Yaowarat Road which makes the “main artery” of today’s Chinatown.
Last Lunar new year also visited here. At that time covid 19 just came to Bangkok. I made a video of last year’s lunar new year Parade. You can watch below. This year no Parade. 😦
Hope you like my post. Let me know if you have any questions or comments.
Stay safe and take care!
