I have visited Thailand 5 times proper, plus 4 layovers.  Holding a special place in my heart, Thailand is the first foreign country where I traveled with my parents, where W and I had our honeymoon.  It is one of my favorite food countries.

  1. Bangkok + Pattaya (1992): family trip [pre-GMTD]
  2. Bangkok + Phuket (2006): honeymoon [pre-GMTD]
  3. Bangkok (2014): Regional Workshop on Trade-Related Challenges to Tobacco Control in Southeast Asia (WHO mission)
  4. Chiang Mai (2015): Regional Conference on the Art of Negotiating Trade and Investment Agreements (WHO mission)
  5. Bangkok + Pattaya (2019): 51st Conference of the Asia-Pacific Academic Consortium on Public Health (WHO mission)

On a family cruise in 2019, the sailing course stopped briefly at Phuket – I stayed on the boat – before turning around and going back to Singapore.  A couple posts during the trip were attributed to “Somewhere off the coast of Thailand” (see 10.158 Whole Maine Lobster; 10.159 American Combo Pizza).

“THA” is the 3-letter abbreviation for Thailand within the United Nations system.

These commercial eating establishments in THA, as featured on GMTD, are arranged geographically, then listed alphabetically.  Some might no longer be in operation.

Venues in other countries can be accessed via the COUNTRIES index.
