Thais generally fly kites during the summer months of March through May. Kites have been enjoyed since the 13th and 14th-century Sukhothai period. The sport was probably most popular during the reign of King Rama IV (1851-1868), when people were granted royal permission to fly kites at Bangkok's Phra Men Ground next to the Grand Palace. There are two types of kites, those designed for display, and those designed for fighting. The latter types are the Pak-Pao and the Chula.

Thai cuisine refers to typical foods, beverages, and cooking
styles common to the country of Thailand. Thai Cuisine is
known for its balance of five fundamental flavors in each dish
or the overall meal - hot (spicy), sour, sweet, salty and bitter.
Although popularly considered as a single cuisine, Thai food
would be more accurately described as four regional cuisines
corresponding to the four main regions of the country:
Northern, Northeastern, Central and Southern. Southern curries,
for example, tend to contain coconut milk and fresh turmeric, while
northeastern dishes often include lime juice. Thai cuisine has been
greatly influenced by the cuisine of its neighboring and nearby
countries, especially India, China, Malaysia, and Laos.
