Having cheap street food options was not just about tourism, she said, it was important for poor workers who came to live and work in the city from the countryside. 

...............not to mention having somewhere for the noodle vendor to wee

Street food is central to Thai culture and the everyday lives of folk, tourist or not.

 

I trust there is a complete unit in the Architecture course encouraging students how to take account of this requirement in their studies.

 

The villain is not the leadership or rhe police, it is the un-uccommodating urban environment, the existing street furniture piled on and poor state of sidewalks.

A keynote speaker has criticized the previous military government for paying too much attention to tourism and not enough to the welfare of the Thai people. 

It's what I've been saying for years now, the problem is, that nothing does it right!
Tourists disappear and the people have less and less money available!
Corruption has reached its peak with the help of the last two military governments!
