Please note: the information in this post is now outdated but have a read of our updated Bangkok Things to do Guide here. Trip Index (what we have published so far): Air France Economy Class Review Paris (CDG) to Bangkok, Thailand (BKK), Asia – AF 166 Eat fabulous Bangkok street food at Soi 36 (near BTS Thong Lo) and Victory MonumentBangkok street food during lunch hours was the temperature - a sweltering 100+ degrees in the shade). The menu features pictures, so the food items won't be too lost in translation. I ordered just off the Foursquare pictures myself - my favorite way to order in a new restaurant. It is also rather cheap here, at just about $3-$4 per item. I went for the papaya salad (of course!) as well as the grilled fish and fried noodles.
