One Salad, Four Names

Tao Kua is a regionally ubiquitous dish of the Thai deep south. It is a salad. A hearty snack, some-thing locals there eat between meals. While Hat Yai and Songkhla people call it ‘Tao Kua,’ people in Surat Thani call it ‘Pak Bung Tai Rao,’ while Muslim folks know it as Ro Yor. This is one in-teresting dish that beckons you to travel more and explore the native dishes of Thailand.

Sheraton Hua Hin Pranburi Villas | รีวิวเชอราตันวิลล่า ปราณบุรี

Above: A bright day in Pranburi. Our pool villa is glowing under the morning sun. We started our recent road trip to the south by making a two-night, do-nothing stop in Pranburi. For those who are looking for a serious vacation, the one that would make you think of nothing, even the guilty feeling caused by some lingering, unfinished works, Pranburi would be the place I’d recommend. The place is about an hour south from Hua Hin, but...
