If you’ve been using your http://www.satellitestarinternet.com/ internet to plan the trip of a lifetime to Thailand you’ve likely been concentrating on what hotels to stay in and what sights not to missbut what about the food?

Mango Sticky Rice: The great thing about Thailand is that it’s always warm enough to grow mangoes! Coconut sweetened rice and fresh mango are the perfect cool-off after a spicy traditional meal.
