Food, drink & Nightlife
Bangkok is known as the Mecca for foodaholics because of the various eatery options available at every turn in the city. You can either grab a quick delicious bite at the numerous food stalls all over the city or choose from the variety of options in the mall food courts and even have a luxurious romantic sit-sown dinner at some of the fine-dining restaurants by the river. Bangkok has everything! But we strongly recommend eating from the various food stalls on the roads to experience the city’s taste and flavours. Here are some places to eat in Bangkok which shouldn’t be missed.
The street foods in Bangkok are equally colourful just like the city itself. If you are on to experiment with food and are brave enough to eat anything and everything that crawls or flies, then check out some stalls who serve deep-fried insects as delicacies especially in Klong Toey Market. To quench your thirst after a long tiring day of sightseeing or shopping, do not miss the Thai Iced tea at Rod Fai Night Market. For cheap quick-eats, gorge down on some slurpy, delicious and filling boat noodles near the Victory monument. Bangkok has a vibrant nightlife too and you can live it up with your friend in the famous bar and pubs in the city or enjoy a few rounds of class cocktail with your family along with dinner on the river cruise.
