Here’s to the next decade.
If you thought 2010 was manic, try 2011. That year was punctuated by the months-long flooding that swept the nation. But that wasn’t the only newsworthy event. Just 15 months after over 90 people died during a political uprising, Thailand would elect its sixth prime minister in five years, Yingluck Shinawatra. BK hit the streets with politicans while they canvassed districts across Bangkok, and you can relive that experience in all its glory in this five-part series, including the highlight: our day out with Chuvit Kamolvisit.
2012 was all about food and drinks. We called out Charoenkrung’s best street food before all the cool bars and bistros moved in, examined the future of food reviews, got worked up about Opposite Mess Hall from Jess Barnes (remember him?) and wrote about imported “craft” beers (oh, how far we’ve come). But nothing tops our epic list of things to eat on the street in Bangkok.
