With an exquisite landscape ranging from limestone cliffs rising above glittering blue waters, swampy forests of the Chao Phraya River watershed, and lush northern highlands, the eclectic appearance befits Thailand’s wide range of some of the world’s most exceptional cuisine. With a vibrant traditional culture influenced by the Indian Subcontinent, China, neighboring countries of Laos, Myanmar, and Cambodia, as well as many traders – including Westerners – arriving at all points along the coast, Thailand looks outward and inward to develop a tradition of food unlike any other in the world.
Dwarfing every other city in Thailand, the bustling metropolis of Bangkok is renowned for its dynamic street life (yes, including its street food), and striking contrasts between traditional and modern influences. One doesn’t need to venture far from the many Buddhist temples or the Grand Palace to reach the dazzling nightlife of Khaosan Road and the vibrancy of Yaowarat Road. Much like the rest of the country, Thailand’s urban heart epitomizes how good things come together for experiences that are hard to find anywhere else in the world.
