Old Town has lots to offer besides rambling old streets that ooze vintage charm. It’s also got lots of riverside dining options as well as Chinatown and all the gastronomic pleasures offered there. There is also up-and-coming nightlife on Soi Nana, a tiny street that offers hip bars, cool cafes and pop-up events such as flea markets. There are also several hip art galleries in the Charoenkrung area that throw legendary parties on the opening nights of their exhibitions.
