Why STAFFORD WALKING STREET?
In Thailand they block off several streets usually on a Saturday or Sunday evening and everyone meets up, socialise, eat and drink and walk up and down the streets browsing the stalls and shops. At the Walking Street there will be mobile bars selling a selection of gin, Prosecco, beers and cocktails plus a great selection of food vendors selling food from around the world from Thai to Moroccan, Caribbean to Pizza, Spanish and burgers and hotdogs plus Barista coffee and Ice Cream van .
