Land of Smiles

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Cannot see clearly. Which dish is the leftover turkey from Xmas, and no sprouts?

Hah! That's ten times nicer than the average "village" noodle shop here. I've eaten in some pretty grim places. Looks like good food, I should visit more often.

In the end that will stop me from living here, its the food I would say if that is what only kept me I would have left long ago, but we have power to cook ourselves.
Always "hope" but never "expect".
