Bangkok's Street Food
Walking down the streets of Bangkok lends a cacophony of sounds and experiences for your senses; the smells, the colors, the sights. The sheer nature of everything feeling foreign, is why you travel to Bangkok: to get out of your 'normal' and wander through these streets that allow you to drift in to another place altogether, and be absorbed by it. Bangkok's street food is utterly characteristic of this place: colorful, fragrant, unusual and delicious. Stop in at any stall or small restaurant/store: they are sprinkled and lined up everywhere throughout the city, with some things that are recognizable and sweet, like coconut ice cream and the durian fruit that is repulsive to smell but has the familiar taste of Juicy Fruit gum, to vendors selling scorpions on a stick and unrecognizable delicacies.
