Contemporary Bangkok is a perfect union of futuristic views and wooden stands spread throughout the streets, wooden temples and huge light advertisings, the speed of contemporary life and the slow traditional culture.
In order to fully enjoy the surprises Bangkok can give you, you don’t have to be afraid of exploring Soi’s infinity, with its tiny streets, in the search of gastronomic surprises.
As gastronomic critic Ung-Aang Takay wrote, “Noodles are one of the big Thai religions”, but almost every sidewalk can offer a wide range of delicatessen and street food is as good as restaurant’s.
Pad Thai, dried fish, tobacco leaves rolls, curry, soups, fried bananas fruit towers, papaya salads, fried chicken, insects and many more dishes fill the streets with colors and flavors, melting traditional thai cuisine with the cultures which already became part of this town.
Every night crowds of Thai people fill the sidewalks of Yaowarat until they invade the whole street. The beating heart of China Town, this is the perfect place where you can try a birds nest soup or shark, as well as baked duck and other classic dishes of chinese-thai cuisine.
The must of the weekend is Chatuchak market, which contains about 5000 stands where you can make any kind of deal with any kind of product from 6 AM until night, here every sense and gastronomic need can be satisfied.
Everywhere you go in Bangkok, in every season, you will find the perfect place for a gastronomic journey and a new experience of taste.
