Hence, the culture and the cuisine is an amalgamation of flavours and influences as well as traditional indigenous tastes. Bangkok, the capital city, is one of the favorite tourist destinations of the world and houses a cosmopolitan population. Thus it is implied that the available flavours of the country are must-haves for the ardent food lover.
