A city born out of sights, smells and culture; there’s a reason us Hong Kongers go back to Bangkok time and again – and not just for a cheeky night out on Khao San Road.
A trip to Thailand’s capital is not complete until you follow your stomach to some of the best street eats in the city. From tantalising Tom yum soup and Pla pao (whole fish stuffed with lemongrass, crusted in salt) to Pad thai (a staple!) and black-sesame filled sweet dumplings (Bua loy nam khing), you literally can’t walk more than a couple of steps without stumbling upon metal carts brimming with flavour. Our favourite foodie hotspots include: Old Town and Saphan Lueng.
