Bangkok's new-look Chinatown Yaowarat is ready to welcome tourists and the public after getting a makeover as part of City's Hall's policy to improve the capital's street food culture.
The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) last month designated two pilot areas under the project to remove street food vendors from the streets and house them in regulated areas.
They include Yaowarat Road in Samphanthawong district and Khao San Road in Phranakhon district.
Bangkok Governor Pol General Assawin Khwanmuang said that the new street-food spot on Yaowarat Road starts from the Chalerm Buri Intersection and runs to Ratchawong Intersection, covering about 600 metres. Most shops sell food, beverages and miscellaneous goods.
