Khao soi or khao soy is a noodle dish served in northern Thailand. The name means "cut rice". Traditionally the dough for the rice noodles is spread out on a cloth stretched over boiling water. After steaming the large sheet, the noodles are then rolled and cut with scissors. Essentially Khao soi is a soupy dish made with a mix of deep-fried crispy egg noodles and boiled egg noodles, pickled cabbage, shallots, lime, ground chillies and usually a chicken leg in a coconut curry sauce. It is very popular as a street dish eaten in northern Thailand, though not often served in Thai restaurants abroad. Khao soi also features in the cuisine of the Shan people who primarily live in Burma.

Wat Chai Wattanaram Chedi and Prang, - one of the more impressive of the remaining ruins of Ayutthaya. Wat Chai Wattanaram was built in 1629 by King Prasat Tong, on the site of his mother's cremation. The main prang is surrounded by prangs and towers in eight directions. The main prang is believed to contain relics of the Lord Buddha. Another theory is that it was also built to commemorate yet another victory of the Khmer, which would explain the Khmer architecture.
