Mrs. Sujitra Jongchansitto, TAT Deputy Governor for Tourism Products and Business, said TAT continues to showcase Thai gastronomy and the many diverse tourism experiences connected with it to encourage travelling foodies to sample the original cuisine in its province of origin.
“TAT continues to emphasis gastronomy tourism and culinary tours as part of its key tourism products for both local and international tourist markets. It helps stimulate tourist spending as well as to spread income to farmers and food business entrepreneurs, and in the process help to stimulate local economies,”Mrs. Sujitra, added.
This year’s theme, Thailand Food Paradise’, will showcase 120 delicacies from up and down the Kingdom in seven key zones.
There are four zones dedicated to famous and unique restaurants, as well as street food stalls that are especially well-known among Thais. These include Trendy Food, Michelin Guide, Street Food and Local Food zones. Most are so popular that they will have foodies queue up to sample the many delicacies on offer.
Some of the restaurants and food stalls present at the Festival include Jok’s Kitchen (aka Jok Toh Diew or Jok’s One Table) from Bangkok’s Yaowarat, 1-star Michelin Methavalai Sorndaeng, Pa Tong Go Saveoy (Chinatown), Chookiat Congee (famous for its foie gras congee), Charoen’s Betong Chicken Rice, and Hat Yai’s Go Auan.
