Food glorious food ...

According to the snappily titled Visa-Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Asia Pacific Travel Intentions Survey 2010, the main reason people would go back to Thailand is for the food.

And why not: there's MacDonald's, Burger King, Pizza Hut ... and even some of the local fare is worth a try.

Somboon Krobteeranon -- (whose name itself is quite a mouthful) -- Country Manager, Thailand, Visa said: "Gastronomically, Thailand has so much to offer that visitors are truly spoilt for choice, making it almost impossible for them to resist a return trip to this country. Thailand offers diverse regional cuisines formed by indigenous cultures and foreign influences, and dishes range from the crowd pleasing Pad Thai and Pad Krapow to classic favorites like Tom Yam Kung and Som Tam."
Among respondents who would consider visiting Thailand in the next two years, 61 percent are repeat travellers who said they would be drawn to visit again by the culinary experiences that Thailand offers.

Top Reasons for Revisiting Thailand in the Next Two Years:

* Food and dining options 61 percent
* Affordability 60 percent
* Great shopping 54 percent
* Great natural sceneries 54 percent
* Culture 49 percent

Drop me a note and tell me your favourite Thai dish or restaurant.
