Street Food stalls in the Ekkamai, Thonglor & 

Phrakanong area's disappears from Bangkok's 


Starting next month, 17 April 2017 there will be no more food stalls tolerated in Thonglor, Ekkamai and Phrakanong area and thereby brought an end to a long tradition.

For a long long time, the owners of those street cooking stalls in these areas bring their traditional Thai food to the locals. A few months ago presented themselves officials of the municipality in which they reported that as of April 17 a.s. in these areas no food or drink allowed to be sold.

One of the customers was anything but happy and told that in the Thonglor not many reasonably priced options were to buy a tasty morsel.

Indeed, the customer did not even know where next month he had to get his food.

A food stall seller said: "There are a large number of people from the lower layer of the population here, while Bangkok is not a glamorous city like Paris or something."

And while that is not only on Thonglor Road, which is everywhere, even in Ekkamai and Phrakanong and other districts on Sukhumvit Road. "

Where the street vendors have to go after April 17 with them stalls is still totally unknown.

"I really do not know what to do," said a trader who sold Somtam. "I have no money to rent a shop that would make me so per month 10,000 baht, charges, and then the employee salaries and bills are still on."

Traders recently had a meeting with members of the City Council, unfortunately this conversation offered NO solution.
