Thai town, Sydney

On every Sydney trip there is always a place I must visit and that is Thai town! Thai Town is located in Haymarket around Campbell Street/Pitt Street, to the east of George Street. To the west of George Street lies Sydney’s Chinatown. The area has a Thai vibe as it consists of Thai grocery shops Thai video stores, Thai massage shops, training businesses and, of course, so many Thai restaurants.

Each restaurant does a good job providing authentic tastes. I can’t really tell you which are better as it depends on what you like. Some shops might make a better Pad Thai but their somtum might not be as good as the others.

Here are some of my activities from my recent day trip to Sydney Thai town.
