All roads lead to delicious daytripping
One of Bangkokians' favourite pastimes when they have a bit of time off is heading out of the city in search of local culinary specialties, and there is no shortage of great destinations or dishes to choose from
The great variety offered by Thai cuisine is not limited to the number of different dishes, but can also be seen in the broad range of restaurants and shops where Thai food is served. They differ not only in the kind of food listed on their menus, but also in their mood and atmosphere.
