Eating buffet has the advantage that you can try many dishes without spending too much money. If your wallet is a little bit better, then according to our Bangkok travel experience, you should choose the buffet. The advantage of this type is that you try different foods at the same time. It is easy to find Korean, Japanese and seafood buffet restaurants around Bangkok, priced at 9, 10 dollars or more per meal.
