Adored around the world, Thai cuisine expresses fundamental aspects of Thai culture: it is generous, warm, refreshing and relaxed. Thai dishes rely on fresh, local ingredients – pungent lemongrass, searing chillies and plump seafood. A varied national menu is built around the four fundamental flavours: spicy, sweet, salty and sour. Roving appetites go on eating tours of Bangkok noodle shacks, seafood pavilions in Phuket, and Burmese market stalls in Mae Sot Cooking classes reveal the simplicity behind the seemingly complicated dishes, and mastering the market is an important survival skill.
Thailand has 1,430 islands, among the most famous of which is Koh Phi Phi Lee – featured in Danny Boyle’s film The Beach.The Telegraph
