Travelers and activities
Thai food is undoubtedly one of the world’s great cuisines, combining layers of complex flavors and textures. Pad Thai Pad Thai is probably the most famous dish in the country and a great dish to start with if you are new to the cuisine. It is a fine combination of the classic ingredients egg, tofu, peanuts, bean sprouts, and noodles, and unlike many Thai dishes, is not spicy. Don’t leave Thailand without trying a Thai Green Chicken Curry, made with a herby curry paste blend cooked with coconut milk and served with steaming hot rice. For a taste of how much resilience locals have to the household chilli, try a Green Papaya Salad. It's simply delicious, but can you handle it?!Thailand for temple seekers

Wat Phra Mahathat is the most famous temple in the city, with a statue of Buddha's head entwined in tree roots.
