Same Same But Different

Recommended Posts

Just wondered where this Thaiglish expression originates from

This expression isn't only found in Thailand. I've encountered it both in Vietnam and in India. I suspect that it's more of a backpacker abuse of English (attempting to speak in pidgin English for the "benefit" of the local people), which has been picked up by locals and promulgated.
