I read in the guide book that Chinatown was a vibrant, lively, energetic and must see place but I didn't rate it at all. When we got there it just immediately had a dark and dingy atmosphere and all the side streets were shut up and quite intimidating. We were not impressed with the look of the food either and it was way more expensive than Khao San. All other Chinatowns I have been to have had a great feel to them but this was completely different and we couldn't wait to get out of there. Wouldn't recommend it.
