Exploring the city of Bangkok by BTS or subway is an excellent option if you don’t like getting stuck in traffic and can bear with the heat outdoor.
Street food is everywhere. Grilled bananas. This is the food court area in Siam Paragon – very large area with a lot of different type of restaurants. We tried one of the Thai noodle place – good tender beef with noodle Their tom yam soup with prawns was just mildly spicy – easy for tourists. There are also stalls with local food. We also visited the Chatuchak Weekend Market – a lot of stalls along the way from the BTS station leading up to the market Inside Chatuchak Market – the place is huge! They have everything you can think of!
