But also their incredible combination of spices (sweet, sour, spicy salty) which give the food its amazing flavor. The food is also very cheap, which is why most Thai people eat from the food stalls that are dotted along every road side.
It’s not only Thai food that is fantastic! Thailand has an amazing atmosphere because of the eclectic mix of people living in the country including its many expats, who have also set up fabulous world renowned restaurants.
