The lockdown has been lifted! It's time for us to go out and revel in the joy of being in the outside world—while adhering to “new normal” regulations, of course. Take this post-lockdown lull to reacquaint yourself with everything great about Bangkok: the sites, the sceneries and the street food. For the latter, we suggest making your way over to Thanon Ban Tad Thong.
The lengthy road, which extends 2.2 kilometers from Saphan Lueang Junction to Phet Phra Ram Junction, is home to rows of sports shops and auto spare parts stores that are mostly frequented by the older generation. But aside from these retail draws, Thanon Ban Tad Thong is also known for its selection of inexpensive but delicious street food, mostly sold by vendors who have been in the business for years. Here are our top picks.
