The Food
Thai cooking is all about freshly prepared dishes featuring strong, aromatic spice elements. It varies in taste from one region to another. Some of Thailand’s spiciest, tangiest foods can be eaten from roadside stalls. The hot and spicy dish can be whipped up in a second by street vendors, using fresh lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, and galangal. A tour of Bangkok’s finest food stalls with an expert guide is something we always recommended for the quality of the dishes and energetic atmosphere. As well, appetizing and authentic Thai cuisine can be found in Bangkok’s most splendid high-end restaurants. Enjoy some of the authentic dining experiences that Thailand has to offer!

He spent a month doing Tai-Chi in China, horse-camped in Mongolia, rode 3rd class trains all over India, tour-guided in Europe, worked in Namibia and surfed in Costa Rica – the travel bug bit this Canadian repeatedly. Food is one highlight of any destination for him, and he’s admitted on a few times to be willing to try just about any food once, and apparently “putrefied shark wasn't that bad”.
