Street food will be improved in regard to hygiene and safety for tourists and locals, according to City Hall, which continues its programme to close down all street food sales despite public outcry.

Vallop Suwandee, chairman of the advisers to the Bangkok governor, said the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has come up with stricter rules to manage street food on Khao San and Yaowarat roads.

Vendors in Khao San Road and Yaowarat Road are able to ply their trade in their original spots but service hours need to be adjusted, he said.
