Bangkok--4 Jun--TAT Inter PR Division
The second day of the 4th UNWTO World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism saw delegates fanning out across many parts of the Thai capital to enjoy the boundless diversity of its multi-cultural grassroots gastronomy.

In a carefully planned series of Bangkok Food Tours, the delegates enjoyed personal encounters with the city's emerging generation of young Thai entrepreneurs, family-owned foodshops and third-generation immigrants from China and India – all united in providing visitors to Thailand an unmatched culinary experience.

All the tours were focussed on small and medium sized enterprises in many different parts of Bangkok, buried in the back streets of the Old City, in market-places or right on the corners of what is known as the city's Wall Street. They included bakeries, dessert shops, noodle vendors and Thai culinary specialists.

All tours have been designed by a number of start-up entrepreneurs who are passionate about preserving not just Bangkok's gastronomic culture but the entire environment in which they operate.
