Bangkok, Thailand

Hello!!!

Thailand's Tasty Food's

Most Thai dishes are very spicy, but not all.

A common dinner is rice with vegetable soup and stir fry. With meals, people enjoy multiple sauces such as Peanut Sauce, Soy Sauce, or a Hot Chili Sauce.

Fruit is also a usual thing. The fruit is bought and served on the same day for freshness. Some of the fruits in Thailand are not found in North or South America.

Tourists and visitors should be daring and try these new foods, because they are delicious!

A fun time to visit Thailand is in April. in this month, Thai people celebrate the new year.

Most of the arts in Thailand are influenced by Buddhism. Some of the nicest Thai architecture is on Buddhist Temples. Images of the Buddha appear in many different sculptures and paintings.


Thai literature is shown through poetry and plays. For example, you can go see a Shadow Play. This is a play where there are puppets behind a silk screen, and a light is being shown on the screen, so the audience only sees the shadow of the puppets.
