Did you know...

…that Bangkok’s full name in Thai is the longest city name on the planet? Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Ayuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit. In other words, ‘the City of Angels’.

…that the Thai are very fond of their king Bhumibol, and that disrespecting the king can have serious legal implications?

…that the Thai like their food incredibly spicy? So you might want to take it easy ordering your first dish.

…that during the wonderful Loikrathong Festival countless hot air paper balloons light up the sky?

…that Thailand is the only country in the region that was never colonized by foreigners?

…that all Thai boys become monks for a period of time? Monastic education is part of their upbringing.

…that you have to take off your shoes when entering a buddhist temple? You are not allowed to point with your hands or feet towards Buddha.
