Dining by Ong Ang canal in Bangkok Chinatown
Ong Ang Walking Street or Khlong Ong Ang Night Market is a popular shopping and dining destination located at the end of Bangkok’s Chinatown. The market is situated along a canal and is known for its lively atmosphere, bustling stalls, and delicious food. In case you don’t know, ‘Khlong’ means canal in Thai, and Bangkok has a lot of Khlongs.
The market, which is perpendicular to the canal, is home to a wide range of vendors selling everything from fresh produce and seafood to clothing, souvenirs, and household items. Visitors can wander through the narrow alleyways and browse the colourful stalls, soaking up the vibrant atmosphere of this bustling market.
One of the main highlights of Khlong Ong Ang market is the dining scene. There are many food vendors scattered all along the canal, offering a variety of delicious Thai dishes. One side of the canal relates to Chinarown and therefore serves popular Thai dishes including pad thai, grilled seafood, mango sticky rice, pork leg stews and various noodle soups. The opposite side of the canal is part of Paruhat Market, the Indian district, and therefore has a lot of excellent Indian restaurants.
Visitors can dine on small plastic stools set up in front of the vendors’ stalls, enjoying their food while soaking up the sights and sounds of the bustling market. The dining experience is casual and lively, with vendors calling out to potential customers and the sound of sizzling pans and boiling pots filling the air.
There are frequent live performances by young singers and street dancers, and Ong Ang Walking Street is a fun destination for anyone looking to experience the vibrant culture and delicious food of Bangkok’s Chinatown.
