Eat off the beaten track on Thailand holidays

Those who are heading to Thailand might like to take heed of one writer's advice of where to go to eat.

In a piece for the Australian, Michelle Rowe noted that Siam Paragon "is one of Bangkok's sleekest shopping malls" and there is a food hall and gourmet market on the ground floor that caters for the majority of culinary desires.

She added: "From sausages to sates, Chinese dumplings, noodle soups and Thai snacks and sweets, there are plenty of pit stops at which to refuel."

People on Thailand holidays who want to experiment with their eating while in the south-east Asian country might be keen to try a coil of piping hot Chiang Mai spicy sausage or one of Ms Rowe's favourites – a kanom krok, which is a coconut pudding straight off the griddle.

Moreover, street vendors can also be found in abundance along the Khao San Road during the evening.
