Eating Insects, Worms, and Bugs in Bangkok – Thailand

red takatan (grasshoppers). | taken by Sony Xperia Z1 – Hi travel junkies, I am SO excited to tell you all about this update.

Like in Gunungkidul, Yogyakarta – Indonesia. Eating fried insects in Bangkok appears on the priority list of most daring travel junkies.

I gets lots of emails from my readers asking me: Where to find fried insects, worms, and bugs in Siam area, Bangkok?

The other afternoon, I took a convenient 8 minutes walk to the busy traditional markets (near the National Stadium Sky BTS Train Station) from Holiday Inn Express Bangkok Siam.

Here’s what we tried:

jing reed (crickets). | taken by Sony Xperia Z1

takatan (grasshoppers). | taken by Sony Xperia Z1

mang da (giant waterbugs). | taken by Sony Xperia Z1

hon mhai (silk worms). | taken by Sony Xperia Z1

They are both tasty, greasy, crispy, and OOOMG!

Fried insect definitely have an edge over crisps, both in term of nutritions value and the exotic element.

Something you should try at least once before you die!


Happy Sustainable Travels!
