Where can i find roast insect foods in Bangkok?

by Weeble69

Any ideas where to look?

Re: Where can i find roast insect foods in Bangkok?

by Homanded

They are quite common throughout Bangkok but a place where I know I saw many being sold is on Khao San road where we stayed.
They are considered a delicacy by locals and a onvelty by the tourist.
Also, the Chatuchak weekend market as well as the night market near Patpong.

Perhaps locals living there can offer up other specific locations.
This is where I saw them in June.

Anywhere drunk tourists hang out you'll find bug carts.

Be sure to eat only the insects that have been caught via a trap rather than those killed with insecticide.

And, if you choose to sample rat, wait until you are upcountry. "Rice rats" are a bit more palatable than "city rats". After all, they are what they eat!

Sukhumvit Soi 4 close to Nana Entertainment Plaza.

Travel Tips for Bangkok

Hotel tipping

by Bodlagz

You are not obliged to tip, personally I tip taxi drivers if I feel they have been helpful, 50 Baht is adequate. The only times I have tipped at a hotel has been for room service or the bellboy, again a small tip is adequate, 20 Baht for the bellboy. Just remember you are not obliged to tip, Thais very rarely tip.

Bangkok is a paradise for...

by Swadeshika

Bangkok is a paradise for shoppers.You can buy the best of brands of the world in the beautifully layered shopping malls.As we were in the winter season , it was a best time to be in Bangkok, with each mall vying with each other with best bargain offers!..Our favourite malls were Makro,Lotus,Carrefour and Central. We went to spectacular Erawan Falls which is around 120 km away from bangkok,and is surrounded by Erawan National Park.This park consists of limestone mountains from which the Erawan Falls thunders down 10 levels before emptying into the Kwai Yai River.

One can travel to Erawan falls from Kanchanaburi.We were eight of us and hired a Toyota Commuter for a whole day trip to Kanchanaburi and Erawan falls from Bangkok.It cost 2,500 Baht with a driver which was a real neat bargain!

Wat Benchamabophit

by SirRichard

Located south of the Dusit Zoo, this temple is famous for its Italian marble floors and walls. The interior is richly decorated and it host a large collection of bronze Buddha as well as a turtles pond. Open daily 9 to 17.

Gender-specific politeness particles

by gfr

Since Thai is a tonal languag, you cannot indicate mood, emotion, or politeness by tone as in English. To do this Thai has particles, words that frequently end phrases or sentences. I saw above the recommendation that you say "khorp koon ka" for "thank you." This is only said by a woman. Said by a man it should be "khorb koon khrap." "Ka" is the female politness particle; "khrap" is the male politeness particle.

Offerings and Prayers in the Melee

by Bangkokjoe

If, on the piers along the Chao Phraya, you see a Styrofoam tray of beef on steamed rice, along with a couple of cups of tea lying around, with an incense stick rammed into the top, try not to go down the judgemental “look at the littering!” “isn’t this disgraceful?” “oh what hypocrisy about Buddhism and treating the environment this way” route. Just don’t do it.

What you have here is what we see from many of the Chinese Thai Business Owners around the Wat Arun river pier. An offering to the river, to the temple or to whatever happens to be on their minds that day. The dear old lass who laid this lot here carried on her rituals in her own world as the motor boats rolled in and the heaving crowds washed past her. She, non plussed, let them get on with it, and they, well they let her get on with her stuff too. Oh yes. Amid this chaos there is always someone in their quiet own world, considering their spirituality and the “elsewhen”.
