🤩 For students who are currently studying or planning to study in Sydney, Australia, or anyone who is travelling or residing there, there’s no need to worry about feeling lonely, homesick, or missing Thai food because, in Sydney, there’s a “Thai Town,” a Thai cultural hub right in the heart of Sydney.
What is “Thai Town”?
🔶 Thai Town is an area that sells Thai products located in the centre of Sydney. Thai Town is the second Thai Town in the world (the first Thai Town is located in Los Angeles, USA). Thai Town is a true centre of Thai culture, featuring a variety of restaurants and shops that sell items and food from Thailand. You can find Thai stuff here, such as Thai snacks, Thai instant noodles, canned fish, Thai clothing or silks, Thai DVDs, or Thai dramas. Thai Town is something very iconic because it truly is a fusion of Thai culture, food and products.
Why are there so many Thai restaurants?
🔶 It’s important to note that Thai cuisine is not only popular among Thais but also widely enjoyed by Australians, Koreans, and people from various nationalities. One of the main reasons for the popularity of Thai food is its affordability. Thai food is reasonably priced, with an average cost ranging from $AU 5-10, making it an attractive option for people from diverse backgrounds to try and enjoy.
📚 For students who are considering studying in Australia but are unsure about which city to choose and worry about homesickness or the availability of Thai food, Sydney is the perfect choice. You don’t have to worry about not meeting other Thais because Sydney has a Thai community of over 100,000 people. It’s especially suitable for students who are not yet fluent in English and wish to have Thai friends to converse with during their time in Australia. 🇦🇺
