What Users are Saying About The Bangkok Food Trail

Bangkok Food Trail 2

“The Bangkok Food Trail was easy to use. I downloaded it on my phone and used it when visiting the city. The local dishes section was very helpful and it was great that you indicated the spicy foods because I was traveling with my kids.”

– Jean B.

Saturday was our “Chatuchak day,” a day to roam Bangkok’s famed weekend market. We followed your instructions directly to Chamlong Asoke the vegetarian food market first. We picked up a delectable mushroom soup, a clear broth chock full of mushrooms of all textures and shapes. That soup would probably cost $15 in the Western world, instead of the 75 cents that we paid. Great recommendations in the Bangkok Food Trail.

Stay Like a Local

For a truly authentic eating experience, it helps to stay where the locals stay. In the local neighborhoods, you see where the locals eat and shop and you discover the authentic restaurants, markets and local food experiences. With a population of more than 8 million people, Bangkok is one of the biggest and most vibrant cities in Southeast Asia. The accommodation options are plenty.

What we love most about Bangkok is the energy, friendly locals and the amazingly delicious local food.  You’ll find everything from ending shopping to cheap markets, spectacular monuments and temples, and everything from top-notch dining to delicious street food.

The Silom neighborhood, where we stayed is our recommended area. It’s close to Lumpini Park, the biggest park in the city and a perfect spot to run. You’ll also find a range of local restaurants with delicious and authentic Thai food. It’s easy to get around with several Skytrain and Subway (MRT) stations nearby.

To taste a slice of local life in Bangkok, we recommend Baan Pra Nond Bed & Breakfast in Silom. This former home of a Supreme Court justice of Thailand, offers a unique and simple pace in the bustling metropolis. Enjoy free breakfast and intimate experience at this family run bed & breakfast.

How do you find Authentic Food at the various destinations?

This is a question we get asked frequently. We travel slow and we use a process called “Savor Local.” It’s a 12-Step process to finding all the wonderful local and authentic foods at a destination. In summary, the process breaks down into four main parts.We start by researching the local foods ahead of time before we visit the country. We connect with locals prior to leaving and also while in the country. We visit numerous markets and food stores to see the unique and regional specialties. We interview local experts like chefs, food journalists, food-loving locals, and restaurant owners to understand the local specialties and their local significance. And finally, we eat at local eateries and restaurants that focus on regional and authentic dishes.
