The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is in discussions with Bangkok authorities to host the “Bangkok Street Food Festival”, tentatively set for June.

TAT governor Yuthasak Supasorn said recently that the idea would be in line with CNN’s listing of Bangkok as the city with the best street food in the world.

The festival will be held in some major roads of the capital such as Khao San, Yaowarat and Pratunam area. Details will be discussed later, the governor said.

He denied reports that all street food will be banned from Bangkok, saying the moves afoot were just aimed at regulating the business to ensure order and food hygiene.
