Bangkok is a foodie paradise, offering everything from cheap and tasty street dishes to high-end cuisine. While regional variations exist within Thailand, this capital city draws from them all, making it a great place to sample a little bit of everything. Here are a few foods and activities you won't want to miss.

Must-Try Dishes
Thailand is perhaps best known for its curries, and Bangkok is no exception. Many shops sell several varieties, along with a selection of stir-fried dishes served over rice. And if it's noodles you're craving, sample some pad Thai or pad si ew, a dish made from flat rice noodles stir-fried with egg, greens and sliced meat.

Salads such as the famous spicy green papaya salad and larb (made from minced meat) are flavorful and refreshing, while those with a sweet tooth will appreciate dessert in the form of sticky rice with mango, Thai ice cream or a cold cup of Thai iced tea.

Must-Do Experiences
  • Hit the pavement on a walking tour of a food-centric neighborhood such as Bang Rak or Chinatown to experience the depth and breadth of Bangkok's food scene.
  • Give your feet a rest by tasting the best of Bangkok's street food via a tuk tuk food tour through the market stalls.
  • Try out traditional Thai techniques at a cooking class and learn how to recreate your favorite dishes in your kitchen back home. There are several classes to choose from, and many include a visit to a local market to shop for local ingredients.
