Ok. There have been so much negative things about Thailand and Thai people here and I am getting bored. I'd like to hear about all the good things Thailand has to offer or the good experiences you have with Thai people.
As a good Thai citizen, I always stop and help any foreigners who need help whether they are lost or need some directions.
I have taken a foreigner to a hopital because he was drunk and had a fight with the local...ended up with more than a few stiches in his head.. poor chap.
I have picked up a bunch of tourist that were abandoned by their song-taew driver in front of the Tiger Temple and drove them all the way back to Karnchanaburi.
And I have bought some farang flowers as he couldn't make up his mind if 30 baht for a bunch of orchid is a rip off or not.
My family have met one farang girl as they were visiting Chaingrai. My parents thought that a girl should not be travelling on her own so we invited her to join us for the trip. She ened up staying with us for a week, all expenses paid. They are still good friend till today.
Anything like that happened to you? Only good things PLEASE!!

If there's two things the Thai's excel at, it's their cooking and hospitality.
OH where to begin!?
I once was hitch-hiking to Bkk from Penang because I was skint. When I got as far as Hua Hin the rain came gushing down, but I was bent on getting back to the Kok as quickly as possible, so I got directions to the main highway and started making my way there. The road however was so jam packed with cars, that a human body couldn't possibly fit through, so I asked a cute young couple if there was another way to go. They asked me a few questions and qucikly realized my predicament. They then ushered me to a police box. The policeman on duty listened to my tale from the two college students. He then looked me over, put on his coat and drove all three of us to the bus station. There, he bought me a meal and a beer and an express bus ticket to Bangkok. The three of them (cop, and couple) waved goodbye to me as the bus pulled away. The tears were there.
That's one snippet of a much longer tale that involved all sorts of good deeds involving Thai folk..including the border guards.
My wife and almost here child are good things about thailand.
Those that want to read whatever they can want all freedoms, but have to understand they can have freedom, but it must be within the law.
Its always warm. The beaches are in general beautiful, and the folks up in Isan are just wonderful people.
Too long in Exile, too long not singing my song.
Too long like a rolling stone, Too long in exile
Too long in Exile, baby you just arent my friend.
Too long in Exile my friend, Baby you can never go home again.
Yep, I live in Isaan and most of the people here are cool and the few that aren't keep their distance.
The local grapevine is deadly effective however. I know two foreign T's who were sacked because one had a habit of getting blind drunk and abusive around town and the other couldn't stay out of girly bars.
KEEP IT CLEAN!
Food, everywhere. Fruit for 10 baht a pop.
Cheap transport; a chance to see loads of the country.
Crazy, beautiful girls who look you in the eye....
Best of all, you, dear Pumpkin!!! (puke)
I'm everywhere you've never been and better than I've ever been
You need a puke bag lov?
But seriously...thank you!
All the nice and lovely things about Thailand and Thai people.
I like Thailand because happy fluffy fairies dance on sunbeams and smile and frolick with the happy fluffy Thai people.
I also like the fact that if you are genuinely down and out most Thais will go out of their way to help you. Once when I was stuck on a Bkk street without a phone or money and no direction home (like a rolling stone) a business woman (and complete stranger) stopped on her way home for lunch, loaned me her phone to make a call, and asked (with a concern which was genuine without being melodramatic) whether there was anything else I needed.
People aren't quite as trusting in the West.
Or would you like to swing on a star?
BJ, what had happened to you that fateful night?
Mugged by a braying pack of katoeys?!
Or am I just projecting my fantasies onto you?
Yes mate I think you might be.Mugged by a braying pack of katoeys?!
Or am I just projecting my fantasies onto you?
I'd been on a big bender and lost my phone and spent all my money, my fault completely. Still, if it's braying katoeys we're blaming then I'll go with that...
About a month ago, whilst fucking around in Pattaya like a spunk-filled spastic, my brother came back from a simple trip to the '7' to announce that a random, angry 'lenny' had swung a thigh-length boot in his general direction, and with some menace.
Was sooo jealous.
Living there increases the chance of meeting pumpkin and family. Got any change?All the nice and lovely things about Thailand and Thai people.
I'd rather live here warts and all than in the UK (even on a big wedge).
Riddle me this brother can you handle it
Your style to my style you can't hold a candle to it
Equinox symmetry and the balance is right
Smokin' and drinkin' on a Tuesday night
It's not how you play the game it's how you win it
I cheat and steal and sin and I'm a cynic
thailands a great place for a lark. to take seriously?
my wife's family have always treated me with the utmost warmth, care and friendliness. they've never asked me for anything and i love them like blood.
"...ever wonder why they kill the weak ones, baby?"
