ICONSIAM Amazing SookSiam Celebration Food and Culture From 5 Regions of Thailand
ICONSIAM’s SookSiam “Thai Food Extravaganza” is a popular tourist attraction located in the heart of Bangkok, Thailand, which celebrates the food and culture of the five main regions of Thailand – the North, Northeast, Central, South, and Bangkok.
The attraction is designed to resemble a traditional Thai village, with shops, restaurants, and cultural performances that showcase the unique traditions and customs of each region. The aim is to offer visitors an authentic taste of Thai culture and cuisine in one place.
At SookSiam, visitors can sample a variety of Thai dishes from the different regions of the country. Each region has its own unique cuisine, which is influenced by the local climate, geography, and available ingredients. For example, the North is known for its spicy and sour dishes, such as khao soi and nam prik ong, while the South is famous for its spicy seafood curries, such as massaman curry and gaeng som.
In addition to the food, SookSiam also features cultural performances and traditional dances from each of the five regions. Visitors can watch live demonstrations of traditional Thai crafts, such as weaving and pottery, and even try their hand at making their own souvenirs.
SookSiam is located within the grounds of the famous shopping mall, Iconsiam, and is easily accessible via the BTS Skytrain or by boat along the Chao Phraya River. It is a popular destination for both local residents and tourists who want to experience the rich culture and diverse cuisine of Thailand in one place.
