Golden items are very popular in Thais. Old Thailand was once called Siam and this means gold in Sanskrit. The Chinese called Thailand as Jin lin, which means “peninsula of gold”. Yaowarat or China town is situated in one of the oldest areas of Bangkok. Yaowarat is best known for the more than 100 gold shops that can be found along both sides of the Road.
