Charoen Chai Community

They don’t know when, but this small community of thai-chinese people, nestled for more than a hundred years in the heart of chinatown, could have to move away soon. Some of the typical two-storey wooden shophouses were already demolished for the recent extension of subway. The future projects of the BMA (Bangkok Metropolitan Administration) for Chinatown, coupled with a certain gentrification of this neighborhood jeopardize this historical heritage.
