The Best Cities for Food Around the World: Bangkok

By Mariam Bulin-Diarra and Alannah McDermott

According to the Mastercard Global Destination Cities Index, Bangkok is the most visited city, beating London and Paris.  Why are so many people drawn here? This city boasts of an abundance of attractions such as the Temple of Dawn, the infamous floating markets, and the Grand Palace which previously served as the home of the Thai King.


Bring out your inner chef!

One of the most intimate and rewarding ways you can connect with your closest friends is in learning how to make a meal from scratch.  There are plenty of things I can’t remember about my childhood, but the ones I do were the moments I spent creating homemade tamales with my grandmother during Christmas.  Although you probably won’t find many classes on tamale making, you can try your hand at making traditional Pad Thai with a yummy dessert at this tour in Bangkok! If you’re going to be traveling to this magnificent city this Spring, complete your stay with this private cooking class of a three-course meal.

Places to dine

Prefer to sit and be served? Here are three of Bangkok’s most popular restaurants:

  1. Le Du.  This modern Thai restaurant’s name comes from the word “season”.  This is to signify the restaurant’s intentional creation of distinctive and innovative dishes every season.  What are your options this spring? For your starter, try their Khao Chae, a traditional Thai favorite consisting of parboiled rice submerged in sweet jasmine-scented water.  For your main entree, delight your taste buds with their beef tenderloin that has been dry-aged for 30 days.
  2. If you’re traveling this spring with that special someone, you have to check out Issaya Siamese Club, which boasts The name Issaya means “rainy season”, because of their love of the rain that nourishes the Chef’s own garden on display for customers.  This restaurant got picked as one of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2018, with dishes such as Jasmine Flower Flan and Mussman Curry Lamb Shank.
  3. A modern atmosphere comes together with mouthwatering international ingredients Eat Me, a restaurant in Silom, Bangkok.  They have an extremely extensive drink menu consisting of Sake, Champagne, and red and white wines.
