This is the traditional way of getting street food to the street – baskets suspended on a bamboo pole. Although not as common as before, you still come across "hawkers" in Thailand, such as this one selling kanom – mostly sweet snacks. The snacks in front are packaged traditionally in banana leaves; those in the back take advantage of modern styrofoam. This picture was taken in Hua Hin.
