There’s no doubt that Bangkok is a foodie’s havenespecially with the launch of its inaugural Michelin Guide last year, which cemented its place on the international culinary stage.

Come September 3–9, the Thai capital will play host to the 19th World Gourmet Festival at the luxurious Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel.

Held in partnership with Sanpellegrino and Gastronauts Asia, the food extravaganza will feature a stellar line up of 13 chefs from 12 Michelin-starred restaurants from around the world.

Throughout the duration of the festival, the guest chefs will each host two dinners in the hotel’s award-winning Biscotti, Madison, Spice Market, and Shintaro restaurants.
