    Its only about your sensitivness or adaptation to food. Street vendors propose a bad but fast refreshments for a lower price. I have not had any problems with it, but just a take an elementary precautions. Bon voyage! almost 7 years ago

    The wonderful variety of delicious street food is one of the top reasons to go to Thailand, but follow a few simple rules to stay healthy. Ask for the meal to be prepared result in front of you, don't accept food which hs been sitting around for who knows how long. Pick the busy street vendor, if the locals are not eating from a particular operator there's probably a good reason. Make sure the meat is cooked thoroughly - which is easy with Thai food because it is cooked at a searingly hot temperature. You may still get traveller's diarrhoea, most people do no matter where they've travelled to, it's because there is a mix of usually harmless bugs and microbes in all water but each mix is unique to each water supply. So when you drink different water you get different bugs and it takes your tummy a little while to adjust. One final street food tip, don't dip into the sauces and dried chillie flakes that are usually presented on each table - you never know if someone before you has "double dipped" or has used unwashed fingers (the same goes for bar nuts anywhere in the world). Just use some common sense and a few precautions and enjoy the wonderful local food.

    Street food in Thailand is some of the best in the world and is often far better AND far safer than in a restaurant. You'd be mad NOT to eat on the street! almost 7 years ago
