Bangkok is known as the world's street food capital. Even so, last year's announcement by the Thai government that they plan to clear away street vendors off of the streets caught Bangkokers and tourists off guard and has led to some new creative ideas that allows some parts of Bangkok to still enjoy the vibrant and aromatic street-food scene.

Marriott International came up with the very clever idea of their 'M Live Market' food festival to leverage Bangkok's reputation for high quality street-food. The M-Live Market brings together the food from 30 restaurants from Marriott International’s Bangkok Hotels to provide over 100 mouth-watering dishes. The ambience is completed with live performances, culinary contests, chefs' battles and many more activities.

The M Live Market allows guests to enjoy a truly local atmosphere with the event taking place outdoors right in front of The Renaissance Bangkok Ratchaprasong. Best of all, there is no entrance fee!

“Bangkok is famous for its spectacular street foodculture. M Live Market will elevate this to another level by showcasing world-class cuisine from Marriott International’s hotels in a friendly, fun-filledatmosphere. By bringing world-class restaurant food to the street, we’re demonstrating our chefs’ amazing skills and introducing oursublimesignature dishes to a wider audience,” commented Gerd Kotlorz, Area Director of Sales and Distributions, Marriott International – Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia & Myanmmar

Marriott International’s extensive collection of restaurants and bars in Bangkok cater for thousands of in-house guests and local diners every day, includingdelectable breakfasts, casual lunches, evening dinners and special occasions. They have won multiple awards and commandsome of the city’s most enviable locations, including prime downtown dining destinations and stunning rooftop restaurants. M Live Market will bring these culinary icons to the street, with up to 50 percent off dishes compared to the usual restaurant prices.
