As it is common in Asia, the basis of Thai cuisine is rice. The word "food" is literally translated from the Thai language as "eating rice". Thais eat different types of rice with everything, it can be served with meat, fish and seafood. Another popular basis for Thai dishes are noodles, which are also very diverse: wheat, rice, egg or mung bean noodles, etc.

Popular Thai dishes:
Tom Yam is a hot and sour soup with shrimp and mushrooms, a specialty of Thai cuisine
Spicy Papaya Salad - Green Papaya Salad (extremely hot)
Tom Kha - a hot and sour coconut milk soup with chicken
Phat Thai - rice noodles in a special sauce, eggs, prawns, bean sprouts and spring onions
Mi Krob - pasta with sweet and sour sauce
Thais use a lot of hot spices in their food. We therefore recommend that you say "not spicy" or "little spicy" when ordering.
Thai is the official language of Thailand, although different regional dialects are also spoken depending on the part of the country. English, Chinese, and Japanese are widely spoken in the cities.
Religion
Nearly 94% of Thailand's population are Theravada Buddhists. The closest minority religions are Islam (approx. 5%) and Christianity (approx. 1%).
Buddhism has also been integrated into the folk religion in Thailand or into practices and superstitions that the Thais added to the original teaching. For example, it is strongly influenced by traditions about ancestral and nature spirits. Thai families often build a small house to hold these spirits.
As travel vaccinations, vaccinations against hepatitis A and B, typhoid, yellow fever and cholera are recommended.
In order to properly prepare for your trip, you should consult your doctor. In addition to the advice of your doctor, a foreign health insurance and travel cancellation insurance are recommended.
