It is extremely rude, disgusting and shows a complete lack of cultural understanding. However they are tourists and probably lack local knowledge.

Ah yes, the font of knowledge that is freely available online at the likes of lonely planet, fodor's, wikipedia, google, tripadvisor, countless travel blogs, facebook, twitter and other social media platforms, all gone to waste.

... bad manners ? 

What a load of conditioned crap ! 

 

The human body body can be inflicted with DVT https://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/dvt/index.html

 

obviously the idiots within this land mass would place indoctrinated BS manners over a persons health. 

Talk about the educationally retarded !

He said train officials said nothing to the couple.

 

And nor did the people complaining and posting it on FB, I assume. A quiet word to the 'guilty' would probably have resulted in an embarrassed apology. Even if those upset knew no English it would be easy to get the message across. I once stood and stared at a girl who had been talking loudly on her phone for 40 minutes on a train in Austria. I didn't say a word, but she apologised and hung up.

Worse than a monk clouting an elderly foreign chap around the head, or families of Thais tossing their litter out of the window every 5 minutes. 

Some signs would help, but that way it would mean the Thais who sit with their legs across multiple seats would have to stop too, or is this just another op to bash the foreigners

My friend and his pregnant wife had to stand in the train to Bangkok because Thai guys were taking up seats to sleep.

It’s got nothing to do with culture.... nor education i suspect (eg... there moms would say that they taught them better), but more with the “me me me” attitude (that any one of us can have) and shows a total lack of consideration for others.

Just where in the world is that acceptable? anybody who does that to the back of the seat I'm sitting in will discover I carry a lighter!

Why?  Because there isn't an applicable SRT rule.

This is Thailand, everyone makes up their own rules.

I see Thai putting their bare feet on other chairs in restaurants all the time.

 

They also like to put their feet under their butt while they sit in the skytrain or restaurants or airport lounges.

 

They even let their young baby walk on the buffet in Sizzlers.

 

I also see them change diapers on tables in the restaurant or kitchentable in a restaurant.

 

Or they bring loads of babies into Sizllers who cry nonstop and throw food around...you should see the floor after they're gone.

 

But of course this is their country and they can be as lowclass as they like.

Are you not getting the Thais mixed up with the Chinese?
