Thai people and culture: With a population of about 60,000,000, Thailand covers an area of 513,115 sq. km. in the heart of South East Asia
‘Thai’ means free so Thailand actually means The Land of the Free. Even though there is complete religious freedom 95% of the Thai people follow Buddhism.
One of the most amazing features of the Thai people is their respect and huge affection for their monarchy. It is very unwise and actually could lead to very serious trouble (including imprisonment) to say anything bad about the monarchy. They are treasured dearly, and you will never hear a Thai utter a bad word particularly in public.Thai cuisine
The first thing that strikes your mind when you heard of Thailand is surely Thai food. It is well known for being hot and spicy and for its balance of five essential flavors in each dish or the overall meal – hot (spicy), sour, sweet, salty, and bitter (optional)
Thai food is famous for its fervent use of fresh (rather than dried) herbs and spices as well as fish sauce.
