The Street Food Capital of Asia is Banning Street Food!

God save us!

Thai street food in Bangkok is famous. It is a tourist draw. It is the only way many Thais can afford to eat. And street food will be banned in Bankok by the end of the year.

The reason? The government claims that it is to promote cleanliness and safety. The real reason may be the way the military junta is thinking. They want Bangkok to be like Singapore. And street food is too yucky to fit into that vision.

Disaster? I think so. And not just for the folks who have for decades manned the food stalls. But there you go.
