International Health Insurance News: Authentic Thai food 'is delicious'

People relocating abroad to Thailand will be moving to a country with fantastic foods.

According to Chrissy Richman of The Life Change People at, the nation has a “rich culinary tradition”.

Its cuisine boasts a “colourful range” of spices and exotic tastes, she declared.

The representative highlighted som tam – a “spicy papaya salad” – as one of her favourite Thai dishes.

She recommended that people visit food markets and street stalls to enjoy an “exciting adventure for the taste buds”.

Ms Richman suggested that people find authentic Thai cuisine by looking for queues of native Thai people, before going to the same stalls as they do and pointing at the dishes.

While some restaurants have menus printed in English, the specialist said she has “never tasted better than the street food of my adopted home in Chiang Mai”.

The UK’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office recommends that people take out international travel insurance before travelling into Thailand.

It notes that while some of the private hospitals in the nation are “excellent”, treatment in them “can be expensive”.
