Top 05 Places to Visit if you are a Food Lover in Bangkok – Ready, Steady, Eat!

There is no better holiday destination for a foodie to explore than Bangkok! A statement that can be debated, but only after you have explored some of the fine venues listed below. A nation loved for its street food, Bangkok is not hard on the wallets of a foodie, which is an additional plus.


Victoria Monument for Unlimited Street Food

Street food should not be on the list if it is a Monday in Bangkok, this is street cleaning day, and many street food vendors decide to take the day off for this practice to be carried out. Any other day is fine, and one of the best venues for sampling the food on offer is around Victoria Monument, just 10kms from Chatrium Hotel Riverside Bangkok. The place is popular as it is a main transport hub, where hundreds of commuters frequent the thriving food stalls there. Besides, the place is easy to reach from a Bangkok city hotel as it is served by the BTS Skytrain. Surrounding the roundabout, as well as the little lanes leading off, called Soi's, are plenty of restaurants, food kiosks, mobile food carts and even a circular buffet; that's right folks eat to your heart's content.


Yaowarat Chinatown

Chinatown better known locally as Yaowarat is quite respected as Bangkok's best precinct for food. Only the best food sellers survive there, hence, you can be sure that what you buy is going to be a treat. Follow your nose and explore all the little alleys and corners of Chinatown, home to masters in street food. The variety is amazing and tastes are similar; make sure to check out Charoen Krung Road on the opposite where the lanes are home to a number of food markets. Yaowarat is popular for its night time dining when the streets turn into one large food bazaar, and delights such as suckling pig and birds nest soup are in high demand.


Ratchawat Market / Sriyan Market

These two markets are found in the serene district of Dusit, known for its green environs and age-old customs. The markets are two of the oldest in the area and are located down Nakhon Chaisi Road. You will first come across Ratchawat, home to a good selection of restaurants where Kobe beef noodles and roast duck are on the menu. One of the favourites there is the stir-fried curry shark, tipped to be bursting with oodles of flavour. Past Ratchawat is Sriyan Market where loads of Bangkok Street food is on offer. There is a fresh wet market, a noodle market, and curry restaurants offering items such as jungle curry. Both markets offer a relaxed laid back ambience and are perfect for enjoying a day of good food with friends and family.


Charoen Krung

Charoen Krung Road is a foodie's delight. The place has such a wide variety of cuisine that one cannot help but get stuffed. Next to the Saphan Taksin BTS station is a boat noodle restaurant and further up a Prachak duck restaurant. Vegetarians should check out Tien Sin.


Bang Khun Non

Some of Bangkok's best quality food is served at Bang Khun Non. The place is located far from the maddening crowds and is not as overexcited as other food markets in Bangkok. Ideal to visit for lunch and dinner the place is famous for Thai pink noodle Soup, pork leg over rice, roast duck and more.
