it is because of all the awful videos about the KING of Thailand and the bad behavior of Farangs in Thailand.
That is the reason only. I like YOUTUBE also but when I type in Thai or Thailand so much bad stuff !!
Thailand is a wonderful place and haws beautiful,respectful people I think the # 1 tourist destination in the world really.
You must think so because you spend more time here than any where else.
So much Sunook for so little Baht !!
Please; little more praise of your adopted home Khun Andy
Thailand for sure is one of the easy to visit countries on the planet.
I debate continually with myself about the Thailand way of not talking about the imperfections of Thailand. Some days I think this is wonderful, and other days I think it totally allows corruption to exist because they will not talk about it openly.
Thanks for the Khun, I wish I did not always feel like a Farang, and I had more Thailand friends. I find it difficult to find close Thailand friends. I must accept them as they are, there is not choice.
I am not the same as the normal long-term Farang, I have never visited Phuket, Pattaya, I do not live in Sukumvit, I distance myself from this unsavory part of Thailand.
Good food, easy people to be with, no big agressive behavior, an open market where a person can buy anything on the planet for a good value.
Thailand people are smart, slowly over time I learn ways to communicate, I know I must learn to talk Thai, they just do not seem to learn English.
