Religion is a major part of local Thai life. Therefore, you will come across many Buddhist signs. Everywhere you see the monks, the statues, and the temples. The colors are bright and the ceremonies are cheerful. Buddhism is a kind and tolerant religion.

Another important part of Thai culture is the position of the king. Thailand is a kingdom for ages, and the people have great respect for their king. On the streets you find many signs with the portrait of the king. Foreigners have to pay respect to the Thai king as well!

The wealth of the Thai Kings of the past, have led to several beautiful sites. For instance Ayutthaya and Sukhothai. If you have an interest in history and ancient cities, you should pay these places a visit for sure.

The food in Thailand

Hot, hotter, hottest. We all know the Thai food can be spicy. It doesn’t keep us from enjoying the local dishes.

 

In order to experience real Thai cuisine, many travelers visit markets, take cooking classes, or eat local streetfood. It is hard to resist the noodles, exotic fruits and delicious soups. For example: Pad Thai, Rambutan, and Tom Kha Kai. Yet the most original food experience you get at the Thai peoples’ homes.
