The Thai people seem to be inveterate snackers. You can get snacks or meals from vendors ANY where in Bangkok at literally ANY time - day or night. These vendors set up shop anywhere they feel like it from sidewalks to narrow little gangways. In many parts of town they are shoulder to shoulder selling something as simple as single little roasted bananas (wrapped in a leaf and roasted on a grill) in one spot to a elaborate stir-fry at the next.

Many of the following photos are of these vendors.
