BANGKOK,(NNT) – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in cooperation with Thailand Foundation, has prepared to launch a new mobile application for Thai street food, assembling information on all of the country’s top roadside eateries.
Street Food Phuket, Street Food Chiang Mai-Chiang Rai and Street Food Bangkok will be launched simultaneously to promote Thai food to foreign visitors as well as enhance Thailand’s tourism image.
The application will present information on locations for street food as well as popular stalls in both Thai and English and will be available for free download on both Android and iOS operation systems.
The launch follows Prime Minister’s Office Spokesperson Lt Gen Sansern Kaewkamnerd pointing out news outlet CNN has maintained Thailand as the world’s “Street Food Paradise” for a second year and the World Street Food Congress choosing Bangkok’s fried oyster pancakes as one of the top three street dishes.
The Prime Minister has taken this opportunity to remind street food sellers to make sure their food is hygienic and of the highest quality. He also reminded them to cooperate with authorities working to bring order to tourist sites for the better image of the nation.
