🙂 Thai food is to die for – especially street food! Lovely people. Culture. Temples and Buddhas. Fantastic diving and beaches.
🙁 Bangkok – hot, overcrowded, look out for scams. Human. especially child sex trafficking. Weird: Ladyboys
Currency: Thai Bhat
THREE things we did not know about Thailand:
- Lady Boys are actually considered as part of the Thai culture. Those belonging to the LGBT community in Thailand experience so much freedom because their society is much more tolerant. They are considered the “third sex” in Buddhism and that they become so not out of choice, but because of past transgressions.
- Thailand was known as Siam until 1939 and again from 1945 to 1949.
- In Thailand it is illegal to leave your house without underwear on!
