Thai street food

Thai street food is the best to get familiar with this country. You will have numerous amounts of food of different types in the street with real cheap prices but the problem you ill face is two things: First: people selling food rarely speak English and you will find it real hard to communicate with them so use the signal language. Just point at anything you like and they will understand and serve it to you. The second one is: Some types of food are really weird and if you don't want to end up eating some snake or a giant toasted caterpillar, you should look with your eyes of what the food is made of. Anyway, if you are hesitated start with the fish as they serve really good fishes in there.
