The Russian woman, who moved to live in Thailand, told why tourists often feel sick from local food and revealed the main mistakes of tourists. The girl shared her experience in a blog on the platform Yandex.Zen…
According to the traveler, most foreigners, arriving in the country, immediately want to try Asian cuisine, including Tom Yam soup and Som Tam salad, which contain a lot of pepper. “A huge number of Russian-speaking people are not used to spicy food and people, in principle, have intolerance to spicy food. Naturally, the stomach may hurt, ”she explained.
In addition, the author of the material noted, tourists “lean on seafood” too much. “They will pick up on the cheap in the markets of fish, shrimp, crab, octopus, squid rings or even raw oysters, and then in the evening and even the next day they suffer from indigestion,” the Russian woman clarified, adding that it was not Thai food that was to blame, but “ hungry eyes “visitors.
In addition, she mentioned exotic fruits and advised not to overuse them, as this can also lead to discomfort. “It’s best to divide your days, or even better, your meals, so you can eat whatever you want without overeating. For example, chicken and rice for breakfast, fruit snack, fish for lunch, ”she suggested.
The blogger also advised to try street food and not be afraid to buy food from the makings (mobile street carts on which popular Asian dishes are prepared – approx. “Lenta.ru”). The girl assured that street food in Thailand is fresh, and sellers always monitor the quality of the products so as not to lose customers.
Earlier in January, a Russian tourist who flew with her husband to the popular island of Phuket in Thailand, deserted due to fake news about the outbreak of coronavirus, described the real situation at the resort. According to her, the international departure zones at Thai airports are empty – there are more doctors than passengers.
