Sampeng Lane in Bangkok

Sampeng Lane, or Soi Wanit 1, hosts a 1 km long street market. Sampeng Lane is located in the centre of Bangkok’s China Town 1.3 km walking distance from Hua Lamphong Railway Station. Sampeng Lane Market is very narrow, very busy and packed full of market stalls and shops selling a very wide variety of foods, household goods, clothes, jewellery and ceramics. A lot of what is sold here is sold wholesale for resale by vendors across Bangkok. The market is hot, noisy and difficult to move through, but at the same an experience of a slice of authentic China Town life for all its good points as well as its bad. There may be better markets in Bangkok to buy souvenirs but none that are more interesting to visit.

Sampeng Lane itself has an interesting history. In the late 16th Century and early 17th Century there was a large influx of immigrants from China to Bangkok. At the time many of the city’s Thai residents choose to live on, and do business from, boats moored in the Chao Phraya River. By way of contrast the new Chinese community preserved with building houses and shops on the very marshy land of what is now China Town in Bangkok. At that point in time Sampeng Lane was the commercial centre of China Town, and it was also where the area’s opium dens and brothels were located. Very little evidence of that past history has been preserved in Sampeng Lane but it does live on in the unique atmosphere of this very traditional market.
