Did you know? Bangkok just banned street food Street food vendor. Photo: Getty Images

If the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has its way, the city, celebrated for its street food, will be ordering vendors off the road by the end of the year. 

The authorities have started the crackdown in some of the city's most bustling neighborhoods. "The BMA is now working to get rid of street vendors from all 50 districts of Bangkok and return the pavements to the pedestrians," Wanlop Suwandee, chief adviser to the Bangkok’s governor, said on Monday. 

However, there is a silver lining. The popular tourist destinations of Yaowarat in Chinatown and backpackers' haven Khao San Road have been exempted from this drive.
