Is gentrification killing Bangkok’s street food?

Is gentrification helpful or harmful? There are differing opinions on this subject as Bangkok’s government has decided to do some “cleaning up” that may be affecting local food venders in a negative way. Many have closed shop but local food blogger has a more optimistic outlook on the situation. Although there have been some closings, for most it is business as usual and the gentrification could end up being helpful. The food blogger does encourage the government to be more mindful of these institutions that are loved by all.

Key Takeaways:

  • Street food vendors have been closing and replaced by construction crews.
  • They are closing because of loss of space and governmental programs.
  • The government can get involved and help preserve the street food vendors that still exist.

“BANGKOK is a haven for street food and is incredibly proud of it.”
