The Best Places To Experience Thai Street Food In Bangkok

If you have spent any time in Thailand you will almost certainly know that it is a country virtually obsessed with food. If you can understand the Thai language, you will hear people constantly talking about it, from what they’ve just eaten, what they’re going to eat later to the best places to eat. Bearing this all-consuming passion for food in mind, we have come up with a few places in Bangkok where you can eat a delicious array of Thai street food in one convenient location. So without further ado, here are a few of our top picks:

  • Jodd Fairs DanNeramit – Located in Lat Phrao, this Bangkok night market offers arguably the widest array of street food in the city. From exotic seafood to the most popular Thai dishes such as pork and basil and Chinese noodles, you’ll find it all here. The market also features a number of stalls where you can find a wide range of clothing and souvenirs to take home if you haven’t spent all your money on the delicious food available!

  • Yaowarat – Yaowarat is the Chinatown of Bangkok and as such you can expect to find a huge selection of street food that is unmistakably Chinese. From sumptuous Peking Duck to authentic noodles from all areas of China, you explore the area and eat until your heart’s content.

  • Wang Lang Market – Wang Lang Market, located on the Thonburi side of the Chao Phraya River, is where you will find the most authentic street food experience in Bangkok. With several stalls and shops selling everything from chicken and rice to delectable desserts, the Wang Lang Market should be on every foodie’s bucket list. 

  • Chatuchak Weekend Market – Situated in the North of Bangkok, the Chatuchak Weekend Market is an immensely popular venue for locals and tourists alike. The market is vast, and if you ate at a different food stall every weekend for a year, you still wouldn’t be close to trying them all. If you plan to visit this market during your trip to Bangkok, be sure to allow yourself plenty of time for both exploration and sampling the massive range of popular Thai food on offer.

  • Talad Rod Fai Night Market (Srinakarin) – For an authentic Thai street food experience within easy reach of the main city, look no further than the Talad Rod Fai Night Market. The types of food you can get at this foodie heaven are far too numerous to mention, so arrive early and take your time to sample as much as you can.

  • Siam Square – Located in busy downtown Bangkok, Siam Square offers a selection of Thai street food that will appeal to the most discerning of palettes. The location is easy to access via BTS from almost anywhere in central Bangkok.
