Thailand is a country with beautiful beaches, gorgeous weather, amazing culture and, of course, it is a country where you can count on amazing food, whichever part you visit. You might try the delicacies on offer at a night market in Bangkok. You might try some fresh seafood on Koh Samui. You might visit a floating market and sample the mango sticky rice. Whatever your taste is, Thai food is sure to tantalize your taste buds and leave you longing for more. Perhaps you are an avid traveler but a bit wary of trying lots of different foods. You could search for a hotel with a breakfast buffet Pattaya and then you’ll be able to take advantage and try many different foods each day. The great thing about Thailand is that the food is often a lot cheaper than you expect. Don’t let the word ‘cheaper’ put you off, however, authentic Thai food is some of the best you’ll taste.
