The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) and Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) have just shockingly announced that they will co-host a Bangkok Street Food Festival in June.

 

We’re not sure why. The BMA is planning to spend the entire year removing and restricting street food from all the city’s major streets. So, what’s to celebrate?

 

After removing vendors from Siam Square, Pratunam, Tha Prachan, Silom, Ekkamai, Thong Lor and Phra Khanong, the TAT and BMA  plan to hold Bangkok Street Food Festival 2017 in June since Bangkok has been named by CNN as one of the top street food cities in the world.

Well considering they did a back flip and are now saying side sois will be allowed to operate so why not have the street food festival? Side sois are streets.

What does CNN, know about food?

Evidently, they know more than the BMA knows about what their own people know in BKK government...!  Hello right hand meeting the left hand for the VERY FIRST TIME EVER...!

If they ban street food where will the working Thais buy their food for the day ? These stalls are essential to the workers. No restaurants open early morning.
