40 Photos That Will Inspire You To Give Southeast Asian Cuisine a Try.

Food should always be an enjoyable part of your travels. Trying out new dishes can be a hit or miss. However it’s always a awesome experience when you discover something you like. This summer, I travelled to Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand which introduced me to so many new amazing and flavourful dishes. I challenge you to be bold in trying something new.

1. Try Some Street Food

South-east Asia is known for its astonishing array of cheap and delicious street food.

5. Fruits

Durian are like marmite, you either love it or hate it. I hated it but my friend on the other hand happily ate it as if it was some juicy, sweet pineapples. I definitely think anyone who travels to Southeast Asia should give it a try.

Interesting fact: Durians was voted the most smelliest fruit in the world.

They have even been banned from eating on public transport in Singapore. A warning before you try durians, wear gloves!
