What you could eat and drink in this country
Thailand is one of the best destinations for food lovers.
Scorpion skewers, grilled crickets, live worms are present only in the tourist markets to stage and test the most daring.
But this is not typical of Thai cuisine.
Most of the dishes are quite simple but very tasty, based on meat with the addition of rice or noodles, always seasoned with many vegetables and spices and various flavors (basil, coriander, lime, lemongrass, pepper, fish souce).
Here are some typical dishes that you can taste in this country:
To drink (water is generally not drinkable) there are orange juices, coconut water, hot and cold tea, coffee, beer, rice wine (in addition, of course, to imported products).
The climate in Thailand varies greatly from the southern seas to the northern mountains. The best period is however the cold season, which runs from November to February, when the maximum temperatures vary between 20 and 32 ° C (in the north it drops to even a few degrees above zero). From March to June the climate is very hot (40 ° C and even higher) and from July to October there is the rainy season.
An exception is the south-eastern coast which normally has the inverted seasons: rains from November to February and pleasant climate from May to October.
In general, on both coasts you will find good weather all year round.
Select carefully the parks where elephants are hosted, if you want an authentic experience and where animals are respected.
The rail network is well developed, but slow. We advise you to travel at night (you won’t have air conditioning, only fans).
Alternatively, you could use buses, cheaper and faster than trains.
