Force them into “Hawker Centres” ala Singapore with proper sanitation.

Hawker Centers cost $$ to build.   

That is why Singapore is so much more expensive.  

That is why I can't afford to go there.

Stop these vendors with thier abuse of plastic bags and foam bowls,and pouring grease down the sewer pipes .

What a load of twaddle. Just go to the Golden Arches restaurants at any part of the western world. They are far more injurious to the environment mate. What some bright spark should do is develop look alike plastic that disintegrates in a few weeks.Can't believe with all the scientific brains around no one has done so. Basically it's called paper.

Better promote access to english language by making of english a 2nd official language in Thailand in order to make Thai people more accessible to Asean countries and more communicative to foreigners vice-versa.

Not really. Basically a concrete slab with sticks and a roof, water pipes, electricity and wastewater. It's the rents that the landlords would extort from the hawkers. Welcome to Thailaaan!

Gentrification is gentrification. Singapore is a cultural bore, keep street food the way it is I'd say - on the street

 

I've never gotten sick from these 'unsanitory food stalls'

No, do not stop this practice. The rats slip on the grease and fall into the foam bowls which float out with the tide of other rubbish to the sea and drown!

Give the rats the slip....says I.

The last thing Thailand needs is sterile Singapore-style hawker centers.

 

With the exception of a few, most hawker centers in Singapore are full of inconsiderate, uncultured and uncivilized plebs,

who reserve seats with tissue packets/business cards, and then have the nerve to call Singapore a first-world city.

Twaddle? Maybe.

 

Btw, let us know when you have invented the magic plastic.

Look you only have to open your eyes to see the destruction caused in Thailand from the "Police" and "Government" you do NOT require a hi-powered PC to see that "Tourism" has dropped and shops all along Sukhumvit are shutting up and lets be frank the HIGH baht does not help anyone

That tissue system works very well, how else are you supposed to make sure you got a seat when you come back with your food tray?

 

Of course in here it wouldn't work as Somchai/Nok would just park their arse on where ever, reserved or not. One of the many reasons I don't go to food courts.

It wouldn't really be "street food" if they were organized into centers. That's called a market. 
Whatever it’s called we can’t have pavements, footpaths and sidewalks blocked anymore by illegal vendors. Washing disused in buckets. No toilets. Dropping food everywhere to attract vermin. A think of the past. Bangkok is not the third world. The adventure of “street food” best left to other countries.
