Question by Nui Nui: Are the shops at chinatown, bangkok , open during chinese new year?
I would like to go for a holiday to bangkok during the chinese new year, heard of the famous chinatown but i am not sure are the shops open during the festive seasons. Can the thais there advised me so that i can do my planning? Thanks alot
I went to bangkok in october but did not have the time to roam alll the beads shop at chinatown. I understand that most of the beads shop are owned by chinese, that why i am worried they will be back in china during the chinese new year.

It’s not clearly predictable, some shops are closed for 1 day, a few for 2days and most of them don’t close at all so don’t worry you’ll have a great time here especially during Chin New Year at Chinatown there is a big New Years festival and a great parade, it’s truly an unforgettable event.
P.S. after your remark rg chinese people going back to china for their new year makes me smile a bit, the chinese people in TH are here for centuries and don’t even consider some other country their home, they still have strong chinese cultural roots and customs but they don’t feel connected to China as a country at all

    I live in the NE of Thailand.I do go down to Bangkok sometimes.Some things in chinatown will be open ,will depend on what you are looking for. I am sure the few shops that close,but will be open in a day or two. I hope you have more than 2 days. Take a look at the Grand Palace in Bangkok also Wat Trimet with a real gold budder in it. Take a look at the book called the Lonely Planet Thailand, or http://www.lonelyplanet.com

    Hi, not a Thai but do know that those Chinese-owned shops majority will close for the first day of the new year. They will be open the next day. Anyway, every year, Chinatown do have a fair organised during the Lunar New Year so you can still browse at stalls lined up for the festivities even when shops are closed. There will be festival air there.

    Have a good holiday.

    you don’t have to go to chinatown to find bead shops. take the sky train to Sahpan Thakin, and walk down the road past Robinson’s Store, after Robinson’s on both sides of the street you will find a number of bead shops.
