    Today I will answer readers’ questions. See map at end of post for location of shops.

    • I’m looking for colored stretch cord, for jewelry. I’m wondering if they sell it in Sampeng Market?
      • I saw spools of stretch cord in green, yellow, lavendar, blue, pink and black at Loa Kwean for 85 baht per spool. 123-125-127 Rajchawong Road, Sampeng, Bangkok 10100.
      • Wattanaporn Pu Shop at 256 Sampeng Lane has a good selection of stretch cord. One pack is 120 baht and is 100 meters. They are open from 8:30 to 5:30 daily, Sundays 8:30 – 2:30.

    • Wondering if China World shops accept credit cards? Do they do vat refunds? Please advise. Thanks.
      • I asked at one shop and they said they accept credit cards on purchases over 2000 baht. But many shops do not accept credit cards. No VAT refunds.
    • Could you explain where the Lycra shop is and name of shop please. I don’t know the Temple. Thank you.
      • Korea Shop sells Lycra stretch knit fabric at 100 baht per meter plain, and 130 baht per meter for prints. It’s located in the entrance driveway to Chakrawat temple, and is open from 8:00 to 6:00 daily. My Garmin GPS coordinates are N 13° 44.555′ E 100° 30.207′

    • I was told it is dead town on Mondays, is that true? Should I avoid Mondays, please?
      • Any day of the week is good to go. Some shops may be closed on Sunday. Shops are closed for Chinese New Years, Feb 19-21, 2015.
    • Hello! I love this resource! Can you tell me if you’ve seen the name brand Moda in Sampeng? Also where can I find flannel?
      • Moda fabric can be found mixed in with other brands at Kimono Shop at Chinaworld. There is a lady on the corner of Sampeng Lane and Chakrawat Road selling flannel. Not in a shop, but just at a counter on the side of the road.
    feathers at Pornsawad

    Feathers at Pornsawad #60-62 Sampeng Lane

    • Hey, I stumbled across your blog while searching for a place to buy feathers in Bangkok. Can you recommend any? I make dreamcatchers so I am looking for feathers to decorate them. Bright mix of Turkey coquille feathers.
      • Pornsawad Shop #60-62 Sampeng Lane has feathers at 35 baht each, or for 100 or more the price is 25 baht each. They also sell net, felt, burlap (sale 95 baht per meter), cloth bags, lace, bells, glitter, velcro in different colors, batting, lining fabric, TC (Tetron Cotton), and faux fur fleece (300 baht per meter).
    • Hello I’m reading about places such as Pahurat, Sampeng lane and Chinaworld. Are these places located close to each other or are they essentially the same place?
      • The are located close to each other. You can walk around all these places together and spend a full day shopping there.
    • I want to plan a trip to purchase quilting fabrics. Could you give me addresses. So I can locate a hotel near by.
      • If you want to start with an address right in the middle of Chinatown, try Grand China Hotel, 215 Yaowarat Road, Sampanthawong, Bangkok, 10100 Thailand. I made this custom map below including all the nearby hotels.

    How to get to Sampeng Lane Chinatown on the MRT 

    The way to get to Sampeng Lane by public transport is to take the MRT Metropolitan Rapid Transit
    (subway) to the Hua Lampong Station. Walk out exit 4. Straight ahead you will see bus 40 waiting there usually. It takes you to Sampeng for only 8 baht. Have fun seeing the sights and sounds of Chinatown!
