Life in Thailand is not fast-paced and people respect each other, thus attracting many people to come here. But some people find that Thais prefer to eat in restaurants rather than cook at home. Why is this?
The geographical environment has cultivated the eating habit of eating less and eating more
The weather in Thailand is hot, with temperatures above 18 degrees throughout the year. The weather also affects people's appetite, so they don't want to eat too much hot food. Fruits, cold drinks and fast food will give people more choices. In the heat, no one wants to cook hard at home, after all, it is more expensive to install extra air conditioners for this purpose, and eating out can be more selective and cost-effective, which is the best option.
Since the heat consumes energy and requires constant replenishment, there is no concept of three meals a day in Thailand, so people can buy something to eat on the roadside when they want to, and there are food stalls everywhere. When hungry, just ordering a little meal can fill one's stomach, so there is a variety of options available at the roadside, and people want to cook their own meals at home with less thought.
Reasons for religion
In this part of Thailand, the pace of people's lives is quite slow, which may be related to the local tourism resources and religious culture, and the locals enjoy the pleasures of the moment very much. Although there is a big gap between rich and poor in the area, different social classes can find pleasure in life. It is also possible that the beliefs that influence religion have made Thai people simple and kind, and people who come here to visit are easily infected by the warm and cheerful smiles of the locals.
When you enter the food market, it is like walking into an open-air buffet restaurant where all kinds of delicious food are sold. You can buy anything you want, or you can immediately solve your feeding problem. In addition, it is relatively inexpensive, so who would want to cook their own food at home in such a comparison? There is also the fact that the food market has a great guarantee of food hygiene and will be checked, so people also have more confidence in the goods available in the market.
People also don't have to worry about prices when they come to visit Thailand, as there is a wide variety of products available at low prices. The local vendors are also kind and simple, and there are no malicious price hikes.
Thus in Thailand, restaurants are not only a way to dine, but also a social and cultural place. Thais love to enjoy the food and camaraderie here, while also feeling the warmth and familiarity of home.
