The Kingdom of Thailand is located in southeast Asia and is situated on the peninsulas of Indochina and Malacca. The territory attracts a combination of antiquity with modern infrastructure.

Here you can find more information about Thailand, local cult, cuisine, and places of interest.


Thailand is located in the monsoon climate zone – seasonal changes in the wind with high temperatures throughout the year, and at the equator, the temperature difference is less.

The territory is dominated by three seasons:

  • boiling period from March to May, the temperature reaches 30-38 С;
  • the monsoon season lasts from June to October, but the temperature on most days will be from 27 to 32C. The peak of such rains falls in August and September and is more typical for the central and northern parts; the exception will be the beautiful island of Koh Samui, which rains in December and January, and the height of the resorts falls on August;
  • the dry period lasts from November to February with temperatures of 20-30C.

In general, the weather in Thailand is quite hot throughout the year, so those who like to relax under the sun’s bright rays are suitable.

What do Thais eat?

Their cuisine combines the culinary heritage of Indian, Chinese, Lao, Malaysian, and Indonesian cuisines.

Gourmets believe that the best cuisine in the world is Thai. Their dishes combine several taste types simultaneously: sweet, salty, sour, and bitter, giving new flavors.

Thais usually eat 5 times a day, and their traditional lunch includes a rice dish, soup, meat dish, salad, vegetables, and fruits. In Thailand, there is no rule to disclose the list of dishes served. They are all done simultaneously, and everyone takes what they want.

Alcoholic drinks are mostly low-alcohol (strong ones are not welcome), and the most popular is local beer.

Thai cuisine is generous in spices and spices, and rice is generally their favorite staple food. No side dish is complete without it.

They also like soybean dishes, and this is because they practically do not eat beef (it is served only in European restaurants), and cow’s milk is replaced with coconut milk.

Their primary food product is rice, and of course, a variety of seafood dishes – oysters, squid, shrimps, crabs, mussels, and fish. Their most popular spicy dishes are:

  • shrimp soup;
  • chicken soup with coconut milk;
  • papaya salad with shrimp in oyster sauce.

But if you ask, they will prepare dishes that are not spicy or without hot spices.

And assorted exotic dishes will delight you. The country’s climate makes it possible to harvest fruits three times a year. Everything is grown without nitrates, so Thai fruits are tasty and healthy.
