Why CNN Choose Bangkok street food, the best in 2017?

Mar 17, 2017

P.M. Prayut delighted with GOOD news that CNN Announcement of Bangkok Street Food

This is good news among troublesome that the Thai Government has faced in 2017 .…

Last three months, Thai government seriously to make the strStreet Food in Thailandeet clean. Thai Governor uses law enforcement   to wipe up the street merchant away from the main street of Bangkok.

Some my favorite merchant has gone for good but some go to located at small street or find a settle place to sell their meal.

The P.M. Prayut policy makes it harder for Bangkok street food merchants to survive and meanwhile consumers that rely of Bangkok street food has a hard time to find the meal.

Even, the CNN complimented about BANGKOK street food. I still wonder why …Thai Media …told about P.M Prayut happiness related to Bangkok Street food, while he try to organize the street by get rid of those small businesses.

Well…You are not at the right place, Eatwalktalktour is about travel blog , we are not a political website.

…. But this is clearly seen , the politic has involve in a people’s life in every element event about food…or  .. what we are going to EAT.

EatWalkTalkTour can put said …Because..Old Bangkok Buddha market

Bangkok Street Food is everywhere… EASY TO ACCESSS …


…Various of variety ..Lot of selection

…Very cheap price compares with hotel and standard restaurant …

All above reasons are good enough that CNN rate BANGKOK STREET FOOD AS top city of street food experience.

All good reasons enough that EATWALKTALKTOUR add Bangkok food tour experience in Chinatown

PLUS, another reasons that I would like to guest, why CNN picked Bangkok the best street food city . It might be because Thai government that mandates the law to make street food vendors have a hard time to be on the main street.  I hope this work and they start to release with regulation to make those vendors still valid in our Thai society.
