The people of northern and northeastern Thailand prefer to consume a variety of rice called kao niow or, literally, "sticky rice." Easily cultivated on the hillsides and high plateaus of these two regions, it requires less water to grow than the wet rice of the central lowlands. More commonly known as "sweet" or "glutinous" rice among other Asians, it is usually identified by either of these two names on the labels of rice sacks.
