Food, Dining and Drinks in Thailand
Thailand is a land that stretches across climatic zones north and south so the food and historic diet also varies with the seasons. Despite this diversity, many of the foods that made up the historic diet are common throughout the country as its borders stand today. In the mainland the orange is indigenous, while further south foods like the breadfruit and banana were found. However, most of the foods arrived with settlers and later with traders.
