Spend a few hours walking through one of the world largest Chinatown in Bangkok. Hop on a Tuk Tuk and observe local Thais making flower garlands and an offer to the Buddha. Yes, this shows that Thailand is a rich Buddhist country. 

Chinatown Flower   Bangkok also known by local Thais as Yaowarat. It is one of greatest concentrations of gold shops, reflecting the love of gold the Thai-Chinese are often thought to have. There's dozens of them, all dazzlingly brightly colored prices. Plenty of restaurants where you can get birds-nest soup, dim sum, shark fin soup and other traditional Chinese delicacies.

Walk through narrow colorful lanes and alleys of the market which is full of fresh fruit, vegetables, snacks, fish, dried and life crabs, shrimps and lobsters. It is said you can find almost everything here.; exotic spices, oil lamps, slippers, boots, and jewelry, real jade and artificial bric-a-bracs, Chinese medicines from long gone and useful today.

The endless bustle and stream of goods and people. Tae-chiew is the dialect most people use in this area.  

Submerge into the taste of a culture not withstanding its veneer of modernity which has hardly changed the last century.
