January 23, 2022

If you are a food lover travelling to Asia, there’s no better place for you to be than Bangkok. The city of colours and smells, Bangkok is a food lovers’ paradise. Street markets, fancy restaurants, and hotels serve up a wealth of foods and drinks amidst the classic Bangkok chaotic atmosphere. To experience the best of Bangkok’s food scene, a food tour is the best option.

Street markets and restaurants
Street markets are lined with food stalls selling the most popular Thai food items. Grilled meats, noodles and drinks can be found in abundance here, and they are not at all expensive. However, if you want a refined dining experience, you should visit the top restaurants in Bangkok, and among them are restaurants that belong to Pathumwan Princess Hotel. While street markets are popular for Thai food delights, restaurants are where you can sample a range of international food varieties.

Thai street food
You can enjoy Thai street food at any time of the day. Most street markets stay open all night long, selling an array of food items, including noodles, rice, curries, short eats, grilled meat and fish. Heaps of food dominate the street markets of Bangkok, and they are all reasonably priced. Chinatown located close to our hotel, Wang Lang Market, Silom Soi 20 are some of the best street markets for street food.

Thai restaurants
Bangkok is also home to several Thai restaurants. Also called shophouse restaurants, these eateries serve a diverse array of Thai foods and drinks. Most of these restaurants were initially tiny food stalls, and the menus are still filled with the most delicious street food items.

Top Thai dishes to try
All Thai dishes are packed with spices and colours. If this is your first time trying Thai food, you should be careful as most of the dishes are quite spicy. However, if you dare to take on the challenge, Tom Yum, Pad Thai, Som Tam, Hor Mok, and Boo Pad Pongari are a few dishes you should try.
