Ten Fabulous Tourist Tips For Thailand

Fabulous Tourist Advice Thailand and Thai Girls

Having lived in Thailand here is some advice. If you have ever considered life in Thailand - i'd suggest have a thorough read about Thai Life, Thai Girls, and Thailand in general. Amazing Thailand is full of amazing people. You just have to find them.


Our Top 10 Tips For Thailand

1. Do not pat someone on the head - it's disrespectful, and considered a sacred part of the body. The feet are considered the least important part of the body - don't step on anyone's toes. A body is like a hierarchy the top being the most important. I like this tradition in Thailand.

2. Monk's are not allowed to beg for money. Scammers, they'll do anything. There was a Thai monk who was scamming many people. He got found out when he was pictured in first class on a plane wearing designer sunglasses. Many people questioned how he could afford such luxuries. Needless to say - because he SCAMMED tourists in Thailand.

3. Don't take a woolly jumper! It gets very hot all over Thailand. That's why many tourists dress like they've just woken up. Thai girls dress amazingly. Little shorts and tight tops. Love!

4. They have two seasons - one of them being the monsoon season lasts for 6 months! Take a rain coat. During the monsoon season the weather can be so unpredictable. There will be times when it will rain for short periods, but with super heavy rain. Take a poncho! 

5. Respect all elders - especially in this culture. In the West we do respect elders. But we don't take care of them as much as they do in Thailand. In England we will send old people to an old peoples home. In Thailand, they will look after the elders, Often they will live with the family whilst the parents go to work.

6. One article said "don't touch a girl if you don't know them" - I think this applies to every country in the world! Saying that, if you do go through with this - 2 things could happen; 1. Get arrested. or 2. You will touch a Ladyboy, and i'll leave the rest to your imagination. Ladyboy's in Thailand are crazy.

7. Don't dis-respect their King he's like a God to them. The possibility of going to jail's high! See 10. La Majeste - People get sent to prison for things like social media opinions in relation to the king. You just can't do it.

8. Avoid scammers see number 2. There's also the scam of Thai girls, 'falling in love with you' and then spiking you and robbing you. This can happen often. Just be careful - there are some lovely Thai girls and people. 

9. They call westerners 'falang'. Don't be surprised if you hear this term regularly. Some westerners in Thailand think it's a racist term. But I don't, you get used to it.

10. Don't end up in prison - i've seen Bridget Jones 2!
