What have the Thai's got right that your'e Home Country has not?

Recommended Posts

There is a topic running just now from Bangkok Barry which gave me the idea for this one.

What has Thailand got right that your'e home country hasn't?

 

It is a sore point with me that you cannot make a left turn against a red light when it is safe to do so 

in the UK.

 

Also, at very slow times like in the early hours of the morning we have flashing lights which allow us to ride or 

drive through with caution. But in the UK, you can sit at these lights for long enough sometimes and never see any traffic.

 

So what has Thailand got right that your'e home country has not?

Bird watching.

What country are you from? So no birds of the feathered variety there then?

There must be birds of the skirt variety surely.

A happier, more go lucky and generally smiley nature...

 

A general lack of confrontationalism...

 

 

I agree with that.

Thai people not coming on (your home country here) Visa and being complete AH's. Denigrating the people who live in the country, their food, their customs, their beliefs, criticizing their every move, moaning about how 'Things Used to Be', ...

Need more examples ?

I thought they had sensor cabled buried in the road as you approach a junction to trigger the lights in your favor in this kind of situation.

:huh:

In general at night or when it's quiet in the UK just flashing your headlights triggers the lights to change wouldn't really describe the Thai way of using traffic-lights (or absolutely anything on the roads for that matter!!) as an advantage or a better way of doing things....

They don't allow anyone to buy their land, in my country people from all over the world have bought houses and left them vacant. It is easier to flip the property if you don't have a renter (who has rights and can not be evicted without cause). I say good for the Thais, wish my country were the same.

Bird watching from where I come from is called whaling.  No skirts but plenty of sweat pants.
