Postcard #20 – Tom Kha Gai , Thai dishOn April 20, 2012 by Marie Gizelle
The cheapest way to travel to a certain city is through postcards…but the yummiest way is via food! So put these together and you’re in for a wonderful adventure! I received this postcard from a friend in time for the leap year (Thanks sis!). (I know right, super late for the posting…) What better way to experience Thailand through food! Tom Kha Gai is spicy chicken soup with coconut milk. I cook a similar dish only not spicy and instead with pineapples for a sweet blend.
It would be wonderful if I could also enjoy one of the wonderful sunsets that Thailand is famous for or see the Wat Chaiwatthanaram after a hearty meal. Do they offer Tom Kha Gai in one of those Bangkok Dinner Cruise on the Chao Phraya River? I hope so.
Many flights thailand bound are priced affordably for holiday-seeking families and individuals. Here are some of the things you can do should you decide to pay a visit.
1. Cruise through the floating markets. Travel on a longtail boat through the Floating Markets Thailand is famous for and visit the rail bridge on the River Kwai while you’re at it.
2. Canoe through the idyllic scenery of Phang Nga Bay . If longtail boats not your thing, try canoeing through the Cave Explorer Phang Nga Bay from Phuket. Experience the James Bond – famous trek and swim or snorkel at the secluded beaches.
3. Go Kayaking from Koh Samui. If canoeing is still not for you, venture into hidden lagoons and caves or go sea kayaking at Ang Thong National Marine Park and other beaches.
4. Be one with the elephants. If you’re the adventurous type, go on an elephant ride and jungle trek tour from Pattaya. It’s not often that you get to ride them after all.
5. Be one of the locals. Experience riding Thailand’s famous motorized rickshaw, the Tuk Tuk…you’ll be in for a big surprise at one what the city has in store for your camera to shoot at.
6. Skinny dip. Yes, you’re free to do that, be in Phuket or in any other beaches…
7. Go temple-hopping. Yes, the temples are worth seeing and taking photos of…don’t forget to pose like a buddha when you’re there. ^_^
There are a thousand more reasons why you should visit Thailand…food is still my first reason but I hope those listed above will convince you to go.
