Bangkok is a city with a global reputation for exotic beauty, a rich cultural heritage and an even richer variety of culinary delicacies for eager gourmands to sample. If food represents happiness, contentment and a taste of adventure for you then make the Thai capital your next port of call for a holiday in this city of moveable feasts. Check out HotelTravel.com’s unbeatable selection of Bangkok boutique hotels and get the low-down on the city’s street eats.

For lavish 5 star accommodation in Sukhumvit book a suite at the aptly named Dream Bangkok Hotel which is directly linked to both MRT and BTS stations and is just a five-minute walk from stylish new shopping complex Terminal 21. Home to chic restaurant Flava, as well as a spa, gymnasium and business centre this hotel will ensure your every need is met. Another opulent 5 star hotel is the Pullman Bangkok Hotel G in Silom, which boasts personalised guestrooms and is highly rated by HotelTravel.com customers. Situated just under 20 kilometres from Don Muang Airport you will find Baan Tepa Boutique House, a charming little hotel which provides comfortable 2 star accommodation for travellers on a budget.

Bangkok’s array of street food is dazzling in its sheer diversity of colours, textures, scents and flavours. Wherever you are in the city you are never more than a brief stroll away from a food stall selling delicious low-price meals, which can often out-do the cuisine of many a fashionable and expensive restaurant. For a quick bite on the hoof opt for some moo satay sticks (otherwise known as grilled pork on skewers) or a paper bag filled with fried insects (a tasty delicacy and very high in protein).

Alternatively you could sit down for a delicious and filling lunch of egg noodles with wontons, gai jiaow (Thai-style omelette) or the iconic pad thai rice noodle dish which has become a favourite in the west.

One of the best places to go in Bangkok for street food is Sukhumvit Soi 38, where you will find lines of carts and stalls serving sumptuous meals from 6:00pm until the early hours of the morning. Have a bowl of noodle soup with crab or barbecue pork followed by mango and sticky rice or the doughnut-like pathong ko.
