I'm speaking as a single male traveler with experience, not a vacationer... I've lived on months end to a lot of countries: Colombia, Mexico, Spain, middle east, eastern europe...sure other countries come with risk of violence towards tourist...but Thailand is infamous for xenophobia. I dont care to understand, I dont care about their problems or anything concerning this nation.

I'd try the Philippines, special VISAs for US vets.

in general, Hard working, family focused, generous and sharing, community spirit, sense of humour, tolerance.......to name a few

If they're so family focused, why is the country full of single moms working in the sex industry?

And if they have so much community spirit, why is the country and sea covered in litter?

I would shift this issue towards the lack of a proper education system

There is a high level of teenage pregnancies in Thailand, due to the law limiting the use of abortion probably just as many single mums working in 7 - 11, The parents whatever the employment, frequently step up and take care of the children. Your point being?

 

In my wifes village there are regular village clean ups, my son attends and helps with the other children. As pointed out in another thread, the Thai way of life does not support openly cleaning up where it may make another person look bad. Unfortunately plastic has a habit of travelling in the wind!! Often in such matters as cleaning the village the instruction will be awaited from above.

We also see in the news the Westernisation of services refusing to take certain items without payment!! 😃

I don't think killing babies is the answer to anything.

Who said it was?

I commend the Thai people for making the best of a situation if it arises, for the most part the solution is the family stepping up taking care of the child, and they do! frequently and have done for years, part of the family focus I mentioned. you questioned!

Many farang are really lovely and polite, love Thailand and have many Thai friend.

Yes I am.

 

Hi Yinn, How are you? I spent all day Monday riding around Ranong on my motorcycle looking for you. But I could not find you.

Actually that is not true. I just made that up.

I did make it to the weather radar station in Sattahip. Very exciting!

When I meet someone for the first time I don't care where they come from or what their story is. If someone is friendly and decent, then I am happy to meet them. I am naturally sceptical about people from places such as Nigeria, but I gauge people as I meet them. Every single person in the world is different. But when you start talking about killing babies, ultra-corrupt governments, and the most dangerous roads in the world, then I have to eat my words. Careless, uneducated people who only know one thing. Money. For some people in the world, and it's not many, if you've got money then everyone will kow-tow to you. There can't be that many countries in the world where people will love you for behaving like an absolute moron just because you have a lot of money in your bank. Unfortunately, Thailand is one of them.

There is no government safety net in Thailand, many of the older generation will have suffered times where they had little or no money, or worked extremely hard for small reward, of course money is important!!

Any chance to make a baht, Thai people will use it to the best of their ability, in the western world it is being an entrepreneur, for some reason westerners are not receptive to the work of Thai entrepreneurs. 😃

I'm not all that keen to meet stupid people, I definitely prefer the company of those with IQs greater than 120.

Although I can endure stupid people who don't insist on talking much.

Drinking, hiking, cycling in silence with those beneath me is endurable.

Talking about other men of course.

 

Different rules for friendly and attractive Thai women.

Not that you could ever get them to stop talking, even if you don't understand their language.

Oh Uncle, you confused.

 

yinn live in RaNong, west coast Thailand, most rain, smallest population (190,000). Very clean nature. Cleanest air in thailand. Ocean water clean and salty. River/klong water can drink. Andaman sea.

 

today you near RaYong. East Thailand, industry area. Very dirty pollution. Dirty air. Ocean water sewerge and chemical. Gulf of Thailand (same Hua Hin)

 

in Ranong, we just have tree for business, (coconut, rubber, palm, durian), 80% is forest, nature. Mountains. Beautiful nature place.

 

RaYong have factory, electric plant, chemical factory. Not beautiful.

 

i think you smart guy. If you wrong, maybe everyone think same. I tell people before I live Ranong, is clean. They say I lie.

 

 Now I understand why, they think I live RaYong, dirty, pollution, chemical place. 5555555555
