I loved Ubud in Bali the most, and ended up spending an entire month there. I think Ubud has some of the best food in all Indonesia. There is an abundant choice of fantastic restaurants in Ubud that offer plenty of healthy cuisine. My best tip is lớn just rent a motorbike & ride through the surrounding villages. You’ll see plenty of rice paddies, it’s such a stunning scenery! – Sabrimãng cầu, Just One Way Ticket

Indonesia is a fairytale land! I love sầu how in some parts, lượt thích Bali, moss grows on all of the old buildings and statues. It makes everything look so magical. My favourite spots in Indonesia are Bali, Gili T và Lombok. All three areas are cđại bại lớn one another, so you could visit them all in a week time if you wanted to lớn. – Kristen Sarah, Hopscotch The Globe

While the island of Bali is a great place for curious kids lớn explore, our family’s most meaningful experiences in Indonesia took place in the northern half of Sumatra. Hiking into lớn Gunung Leuser National Park, we saw orangutans, wild peacocks, và monitor lizards the length of a go-kart. Venturing further south, we hiked near active sầu volcanoes, soaked in hot springs, và nearly ate our weight in a local variety of mango that was the kích thước and shape of an egg. We enjoyed Sumatra so much that we returned six months later! – Jason, An Epic Education


The Cuisine

Food in Thailand

Over the years I have made several trips to lớn Thailand, choosing lớn split my time between Bangkok and Chiang Mai. While my food cravings have sầu changed a little over the years, there are a few Tnhị dishes that I always seek out when I’m in Thái Lan – & you should too! Pla pao is fish stuffed with lemongrass. The fish is coated in a thiông chồng layer of salternative text và then grilled. The salt allows the moisture khổng lồ stay inside the fish as it grills. It is by far the most succulent dish I have eaten in Đất Nước Thái Lan – & the accompanying garlic chili dipping sauce is perfection. I typically buy this at a street market in Silom soi trăng tròn in Bangkok. You can get it in most street markets. Another favourite is Khao soi; a coconut curry noodle soup with chicken. It has a Burmese influence, và quite popular in Northern Vương Quốc Nụ Cười. Many a foodie venture to lớn Chiang Mai & make a goal of eating at every khao soi restaurant in the đô thị. My favourite is served from the baông chồng of a barbershop in the Nimmanheamin neighborhood. Last but not least is roast chicken. It is a favourite in many cultures, including Vương Quốc Nụ Cười. Andy Rickman of PokPok in Portl& (& now LA and NYC) found his inspiration at SP Chicken in Chaing Mai. Roast chicken varies slightly, the true difference, in xứ sở của những nụ cười thân thiện at least, is in the accompanying dipping sauce; sweet, spicy or a little of both, the dipping sauce is key! – Pamela, Savoir Faire Abroad

Give your senses a spicy treat
Tom Yum Goong with ramen by Takaokun

For the main course, you could dip inlớn either Pad Tnhì which is fried noodles or Khao Pad which is fried rice. The locals usually eat this with prawns, chicken, crab or pork. Gaeng Daeng is a tender meat dish which comes with a sprinkling of kaffir lime leaves và is made with coconut milk và red curry paste. If you’re in a hurry, opt for Pad Krapow Moo Saap which is a one-plate dish of steamed White rice và minced fatty pork.

Pad Tnhì – It maybe the most famous dish but it’s a dish everyone has to lớn try at least once when they reach Vương Quốc Của Những Nụ cười, preferably from a street stall market. The dish in Bangkok tastes very different from the Pad Tnhì usually served up in restaurants outside Thái Lan, where it is usually pretty standard. Being a vegetarian I always go for the tofu version but whichever version you choose, the savoury stir-fried rice noodle dish topped with crushed peanuts & beansprouts is always seriously delicious – và very filling too! – Becky, Global Grasshopper

Unique desserts that will thrill
Khanom Krok by Cheng Scalley

For dessert, you’ll relish the taste of Khanom Krok, a bite sized dessert sold by street vendors in Bangkok. Thai ice-cream comes in interesting flavours lượt thích jackfruit & tea và is often served in coconut shells. You could also try Woon Bai Toey which is made from pandan leaf và topped with jelly và coconut cream. To beat the heat, try some Tup Tlặng Krob, made of water chestnuts & served in coconut milk và ice.

Vương Quốc Nụ Cười is a country filled with more than you expect. The people are some of the friendliest you will ever meet, their food is some of the best in the world, and their lvà is beyond beautiful. The best part is that each area is unique. You can find different dishes khổng lồ tantalize your tastebuds in each new thành phố. I recommover trying Kow soy, a wheat noodle dish served in a curry broth that can be found in Chiang Mai. But you can’t only see the north in xứ sở của những nụ cười thân thiện Thái Lan. It’s a must khổng lồ venture down to lớn the islands as well where you can find what I consider one of the most beautiful viewpoints in the world, Freedom Beach viewpoint on Koh Tao. – Taylor, Taylor’s Tracks

Vương Quốc Của Những Nụ cười has no shortage of upmarket restaurants, large food courts & western eateries such as McDonalds, KFC, Swenson’s, Burger King, Pizza Hut etc. At a typical night market you’ll find sweetcorn pancakes, banana leaf rice cakes, sweet stalls, fresh fruit và lots of seafood. Street stall food is usually priced between 40 và 100B whereas a seafood dinner or western lunch would cost about 150 to lớn 350B. If you’re looking for fine dining, prices can go up to lớn 350B.

If you’re hitting the streets of Bangkok, the one place you cannot miss is Thip Samai Pad Tnhì restaurant. This restaurant has been serving up arguably the best Pad Tnhì in Xứ sở nụ cười Thái Lan for the last 5 decades. Make sure that you order the ‘superb’ version for a Pad Tnhì served wrapped in a thin layer of fresh yummy omelette with the perfect màn chơi of sweet, sour and salty! – Alice, Teacake Travels

Food in Indonesia

One of our favourite things about visiting Indonesia is all the fresh fruit you can pichồng up just about anywhere. Our go-lớn is a hairy red fruit known as rambutung. It is similar lớn a lychee but is not overly sweet & much easier to lớn peel. You can piông xã up a whole bunch for just Rp. 18,000 (about US$1.80). It’s the perfect sweet ending to a spicy meal or as a pick-me-up snack while sightseeing! – Jessica, Notes of Nomads

A variety of tastes & textures
Rendang by Gramê man Hills

Two beef dishes that you must try are the Soto Betawi which is a soup made with cow milk và beef offal; & Rendang which is a dry beef stew. You’ll love the delicious peanut sauce which accompanies Sate ayam, a dish of grilled & skewered BBQ chicken.

If you fancy some meatballs served in a bowl of beef broth và noodles, try Bakso which also comes with tofu & eggs. For something a little safer, try Indonesian Ayam goreng or fried chicken or Siomay which is something lượt thích dim sum.

Give sầu your palate a sense of adventure
Pempek by Yasmimãng cầu Haryono

When it comes to salads, you can order Lotek or Gado-gabởi, which is a local favourite & consists of boiled veggies topped with a generous dressing of peanut sauce. Other related dishes are karedok, atah and pecel. While in the country vày taste some oxtail soup or Sop Buntut which contains barbecued or fried oxtail.

Another quality dish is Pempek which is made of tapioca & fish và contains an egg at the centre. It comes with a dark dipping sauce called cuka.

Treats for the sweet-toothed
Cendol by SurLaRoute.fr

Most street stalls sell desserts lượt thích Es Teler, a dessert made of jackfruit slices, shredded coconut, avocavị và shaved ice. You could also try green or blaông xã Klepon which are sweet coconut rice balls served on a banamãng cầu leaf. Other desserts khổng lồ try are the jelly-based Cendol and Pilịch sự Goreng, a type of banana fritters.

Apart from western fast food outlets such as McDonalds and Pizza Hut, you can get a budget meal at street vendors (warung) or at markets (pasar). However, the smaller towns may have more traditional fare & less of western options. Most street meals cost less than đôi mươi,000Rp. A meal for two people at a mid-range restaurant costs about 150,000.00 Rp while a McMeal would cost 45,000.00 Rp

Growing up in The Netherlands in a multicultural home with a Polish mom, my parents often encouraged me khổng lồ try new cuisines during our travels. But, while at home, Indonesian food was a staple in our diets, as Indonesian influences are definitely present in Dutch culture (Indonesia is a former Dutch colony). Some of my favorite dishes that I love sầu to replicate with imported spices in Thủ đô New York include Namê say Goreng (a fried rice dish often consisting of a mixture of vegetables, shrimp/shrimp paste, chicken, eggs và more), & chicken satay (chicken skewers in a peanut sauce). In addition, I love side dishes such as lumpia (spring rolls), krupuk (shrimp crackers) and for a bit of a spicy kiông chồng, sambal oelek (a chili paste). – Nicolette, CultureTrav

Many people make a beeline for Thailand’s stunning islands, và they are undeniably hard lớn leave sầu. So before you do make sure khổng lồ spend some time exploring the fascinating culture and gorgeous nature of North Thailand; trek through the jungle and be amazed by the nature, people, food và temples (don’t miss the White Temple near Chiang Rai) before heading South to relax on the beaches, you won’t regret it. – Anmãng cầu, Global Gallivanting

With origins dating baông xã centuries, Thailand’s Loi Krathong and Yi Peng festivals are two separate but often back-to-baông chồng celebrations based heavily on the idea of clearing bad luchồng, new beginnings and sending love khổng lồ Buddha. During the Loi Krathong celebrations, people craft “krathong” (rafts) out of banana leaves, lotus flowers, candles and incense, and phối them abtia laze before floating them down Thailand’s waterways, carrying bad luck away & symbolizing a fresh start.

During the Yi Peng festival, people make “khom loi” (floating lanterns) out of thin fabric such as rice paper, & attach a candle, which causes the lantern to float up into lớn the sky. When thousands of the lanterns are launched into the air at the same time, it resembles a giant floông xã of jellyfish floating through the sky.

Stay comfortable, stay smart
Phuket by Colm Britton

When it comes to packing for a holiday, take a good pair of sandals which you can easily remove before you enter a temple or museum. At most religious sites it’s advisable lớn dress conservatively and always kiểm tra if photography is allowed before taking a picture of Buddha or other religious symbols.

When I think bachồng lớn my trip to lớn Thái Lan a few years ago, the one province that really took my breath away was Kanchanaburi, a beautiful mountainous region west of Bangkok and cthất bại lớn the border of Myanmar. I stayed on the River Kwai Jungle Rafts, an eteo, floating hotel built upon rafts & anchored on the Kwai Noi River. It was one of the most beautiful, peaceful places I’ve sầu ever stayed in. I would wake early and watch the mist on the river burn off as the sun crept up – everything was so still and quiet. – Rachel, Department of Wandering

Do your homework prior to lớn travel

It is best to lớn buy bottled water & avoid drinking tap water in Indonesia. Even if it looks clean, it is best not khổng lồ drink directly from the tap. Bottled water comes in 5-gallon bottles, 1 or 2 litre bottles or even as single-serving glasses. Stay away from bottle refilling stations as they are not of a drinkable standard và you could over up falling ill.

Indonesia is one of the most complete destinations one could desire for.
