Find the best Pad Thai in Bangkok

Find the best Pad Thai in Bangkok I have to confess. When I was planning my first trip to Thailand, over 10 years ago I couldn’t quite understand why my friend was getting so excited about a plate of noodles. He had been to Thailand a few months earlier, and the minute I told him […]
