| One of the great pleasure of being in Thailand is that
there is a great abundance of eating places and the cost
of eating is rather cheap when compared to those in Western
countries. As Thailand is a major agricultural country,
grains, vegetables, meat and all kinds of foodstuff are
produced here at very reasonable prices. Besides, aquatic
and marine animals are easily acquired from the sea and
many rivers. These factors together with the gift of cooking
of Thai people make Thailand a paradise for every food
Wherever you are in Thailand, you'll surely find a good
number and variety of eating places -- perhaps much more
than you've ever expected. And that's why many Western
visitors said that one of their pleasures while being
in Thailand is EATING! When asked why? They simply said
-- Because it is delicious and cheap!
