Five Years in Thailand - A Western Perspective with George

The Kingdom of Thailand, formerly known as Siam, is located in Southeast Asia, and has a rich culture shaped by waves of religious, cultural, and military expansions from neighbouring peoples.  It is a land of acceptance and tolerance while still being conservative; its population of 64 million embrace the Internet, technology and all the new social trends while still being traditional.  It is a land of beaches and rivers, plains and mountains, tropical and temperate forests, islands and lands far from the ocean.

Please join me while I relive the wonderful exploration of the roads more and less traveled in Thailand during the five years I spent there.  We will explore the northern, central, southern, and southeastern regions of Thailand.  We will look at the touristy places and the not-so-touristy places.  We will also look at the people and their culture through the eyes of a westerner who lived among the locals. I look forward to seeing you there.  I promise we will make this fun! Cheers, George

    Thanks for some interesting insights George. That was a great overview with some insider tips for those of us who like to get away from it all and meet the folks who live in the places that we visit. Thanks for the introduction to the Thai language as well.

    Nicely done! I liked how he broke the country up in to regions, and gave a perspective that way. And the cultural bit at the end tied it all together nicely.
