  Rice fields
by Myndo

Rice is a main food in Thailand, so no wonder they grow it here, too.
The difference to other countries that also grow rice is, that you won´t see many terraces, because the area is flatter.

Rice can be grown twice in a year. It takes a lot of water. When they have taken the fruit, they let the water out, so the rest of the plant gets dry.
They use this to feed the animals (and the dung of the animals is the fertilizer for next time).
