I've never had the opportunity to visit to Thailand but on Sunday we popped into town and paid a visit to the Thai Food & Craft Festival 2011.
My overall impression:
- music that seemed like it was trying to blend varying styles unsuccesfully;
- women in a beauty contest that seemed to lack that essential ingredient
- food absolutely wonderful, can't wait to try more
Not enough to persuade me to travel half way round the world but it killed an hour or so on a Sunday afternoon.
Don't think my review will trouble Lonely Planet or Rough Guides but here are some of my photos from the afternoon
