Food & Leisure

Home >> Food & Leisure

Name any cities on earth where there’s food 24/7, Bangkok will surely be listed.  There’s food in every corner of Bangkok from the side walks to skyscrapers.  Food is plenty, yummy, and most important, generally cheap!  How cheap is it?  Let’s say, it’s very common for most Bangkok people to eat out 2-3 times a week.

What’s more, eating for Bangkok people may involve singing (Karaoke,) watching live music and movies.  Eating (mostly after work) means leisure here.  And not only in restaurants but you may see Bangkok people eating and picnicking in public parks.

Since there are thousands of places relating to food and leisure in Bangkok, I could not list them all here.  Instead, I have selected the ones which are popular, one of a kind, the pioneers, etc.  So, start your food journey from this list and enjoy eating as leisure like Bangkok people!
