The government will improve the pavements and impose zoning and opening hours on street food vendors on Yaowarat and Khao San roads in Bangkok.

A reform committee on the environment headed by Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Prawit Wongsuwon resolved on Wednesday to improve the condition of street food sales in both areas as the Cable News Network (CNN) praised street foods as the charms of Bangkok, said Sub Lt Pornchanok Amphan, a spokesperson of the Defence Ministry.

The footpaths would be repaved, cleanliness would be improved, food stalls would show unique designs, and traffic flows would be facilitated to prevent congestion, she said.
