Bangkok’s iconic bustling streets, lined with food vendors may soon vanish.
The government is moving to ban these food carts and makeshift clothing stalls from the capital’s main roads, as part of a campaign to clean up the city.
“All types of stalls including clothes, counterfeit goods and food stalls will be banned from main city roads,” Walop Suwandee, chief adviser to Bangkok’s governor, told news agency AFP.
“They will not be allowed for order and hygiene reasons.”
Officials have for weeks been forcing vendors out of Thonglor, one of the city’s popular tourist districts, but the latest announcement confirms that the ban is city-wide.
