It is official – research done by Lonely Planet and feedback from seasoned travellers crown Bangkok as one of the best cities in the world for food lovers. Although you may have a penchant for gourmet dining, the real delight for your palette lies in exploring the plethora of street stalls in Bangkok.

When looking for a suitable place to stay in Bangkok, you can opt for a fully-fledged hotel or the convenient luxury of an apartment hotel. Bangkok offers a wide range of accommodation spaces for you to choose from, depending on the number of people you are travelling with and level of luxury you are looking for. The Citadines Sukhumvit 8 Bangkokis located in the centre of the city, placing you close to many of the food stalls, shopping malls and other attractions.

Some of the more popular street food stalls are Sukhumvit Soi, Victory Point, Yaowarat (Chinatown), Chatuchak Market, Ratchawat Market, Charoeng Krung, Bang Khun Non, Petchaburi Soi 5 and Patpong Night Market.

Thai food is an absolute delight for your palette. You’ll find many dishes to be rich with ingredients such as lemongrass, chillies, coconut milk, fish sauce and shallots. The secret to these delicacies is the unique combination of the four basic tastes, sweet, sour, salty and spicy – a delicious convergence of tastes in a variety of delightful dishes.

Most dishes consist of rice or noodles. However, unlike rice, the ordering process for noodles can be a tad complicated due to the variety that is available. Some dishes you can try are – ‘kaao pad’ (fried rice), ‘pad thai’ (stir-fried rice noodles), ‘pad kaprao’ (stir-fried meat with holy basil leaves), ‘moo satay’ (grilled pork on a stick), ‘kai jiaow’ (Thai-style omelette) and ‘moo kratium prik thai’ (stir-fried pork in garlic and pepper), ‘kaao mun kai’ (rice and steamed chicken) and ‘hoi todd’ (oyster omelette). Don’t forget to treat yourself to some traditional Thai desserts while you are there!
