I will be in Bangkok for some days in the beginning of October, after which I will be on a guided tour up in Chiang Mai. The second part of this trip will be fully guided and I don't have to plan anything.
I would like to go exploring a bit and live a Thai's everyday life. For starters with meals:
What are the street food options? I don't mind spicy food but I would like to avoid risking a poisoning.
What are the "friends food" options? E.g. where do Thais go out with their friends for a meal?
What are the "fancy food" options? E.g. where would a local take out his girlfriend for a date?
