Why Live in Thailand
Thailand is one of the world’s most popular travel destinations. For good reason. As a culture the Thais are truly unique with a distinct culture including influences from ancient religions, past civilisations and a ‘mai phen rai’ (it doesn’t matter) attitude to life. There are plenty of generalisations people use to describe Thai people – polite, fun-loving, respectful – but there’s a lot more to it.
Thai culture is much more complex and nuanced than you will ever know. Even living in the country for many years, as a foreigner, won’t get you much closer to fully understanding the ‘Thai Way’. The best way to at least try and understand Thai culture is to immerse yourself in the festivals, celebrations and family life (when the opportunity arises).
In business, in love, in groups and as friends, Thainess is a long adventure that will equally confuse, enrage, engage and delight you.
