Chinatown (Yaowarat road) is hub of many things in Bangkok including gold shops. Thais prefer to purchase gold jewelry from Yaowarat road as the making charge is cheaper.
You can find many gold shops there. Just choose the shop which have moderate crowd. Thumb rule is shop where locals are shopping.
