Bangkok's Famous Street Food Stalls Targeted for Removal

The days appear to be numbered for Bangkok's storied street-food scene.

In an effort to clean up the city's thoroughfares, Thailand's government has begun removing the beloved food stalls where locals and tourists alike fill up on cheap but tasty rice dishes, noodles, and sweets—the best street food in the world, according to a recent CNN ranking. 

The first wave of the cleanup affected Bangkok's major roads only, but government officials say they won't rest until they've de-cluttered all 50 of the city's districts.

You might be able to find the occasional pushcart vendor, but they won't be allowed to linger—any stall obstructing the sidewalk has got to go.
