tom yum is the most famous traditional food in thailand. there are others like som tum (papaya or mango salad), kanom jin (which is famous for brekfast) and others.

Hey Gary and Barry. We went to Boost Bar and met the crazy kiwi Jerry. We drunk Red Devils and snorted tequilla. You are so true...Boost Bar is the coolest bar in Phuket. He hooked us up on some cheap tours, took us to his island camping and showed us some off the beaten track tours that he does. Thanks for the recommendation.

You never mentioned Patong Beach! There's a really cool bar called Rock City there. I'd definately recommend it!

yes, a lot of people go to james bond island. that's just one of the main attractions when you do island hopping. and there are other extreme activities like bunjee jumping, para sailing, scuba diving, etc.

sorry binder i was a bit blur just now with your question... but to answer your question... phuket is an island and it's main attraction is the beach. so i can only think of the beaches which are very beautiful. and islands are very beautiful sites as well. i hope i answered your question.
Submitted by bindero on 2008-10-02 05:49:33
oh .. it probably my mistake to not be very specific when putting the question. just have a look at this and tell what you think)

hi bindero,

i think you were asking about sites in Thailand, as a country... basing from the link given. Yes, in the whole country of Thailand there are many wonderful sites to visit. But am not able to give you specific sites as I've only been to a few places in Thailand.

in phuket though... i can only give you beach sites.
Submitted by roxy on 2008-10-03 06:09:22
sure there are a lot of sights in Thailand! I've never been to Phuket but i suppose there must be smth to see. Anyhow it's not hat i wanted to ask) Janet, what places id you see in thailand?

Submitted by roxy on 2008-10-03 07:48:21
wooow!! Thai language? that sounds pretty unusual1. Is it a difficult language? what for did you learn it? for yourself or you need it for work?

Submitted by j3net on 2008-10-03 07:54:14
thai language is one of the most difficult languages to learn. it is tonal - which makes it more difficult to learn . i only learned some basic conversational words. i needed it because i was teaching in one of their schools in phuket. i thought if i was going to interact with my students, i should learn to at least say some words. it was fun. difficult, but fun.
Submitted by roxy on 2008-10-03 08:34:01
