 Tha Pra Chan 

Rub shoulders with university students along historical Tha Prachan Road, a top spot for affordable and delicious street food.  Tha Prachan is one of Bangkok’s most historical piers.  It is also home to two of Thailand’s leading Universities, Thammasart and Silpakorn ; and undeniably the area surrounding any university will be a gastronomic gold mine.

The area around Tha Prachan (Moon Pier) comes alive around 4 pm, when students and workers starting to head home and visiting tourists form an eclectic mix of people with the street vendors and owners of decades-old businesses in the shops. The food on offer at Tha Prachan is a real treat.  Inside the pier’s small complex are a number of great local eateries offering all the favourites like papaya salad and green chicken curry.  Outside are shop house restaurants, various street vendors selling tropical fruits, juices and other delicious snacks.  The market close to the river at Tha Pra Chan is full of food carts and food stalls selling nearly every Thai dish imaginable and many of the seats come with a relaxing river view.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”16px”][vc_single_image image=”2968″ css_animation=”fadeInUp” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”yes” img_link_target=”_self” title=”New Yong Hiew Porchana at Thapracha – Thank you picture from travel.cnn.com by Cattleya Jaruthavee” img_size=”full”][vc_empty_space height=”16px”][vc_column_text]How to get there:  Taxi or boat from Saphan Taksin to Tha Pra Chan pier.
