Forum Topic: Why do foreign tourists choose Thailand?

Thailand attracts 14,000,000 foreign visitors each year, but why do they choose Thailand? Great weather, fantastic beaches, smiling and friendly people, and cheap sex all play their part in bringing the tourists back again and again. For our latest poll and forum, we decided to find out which is Thailand's biggest pull. Let us know whether you prefer the cheap shopping or the fantastic food. Maybe you are hooked on the stunning beauty of Thailand's beaches or perhaps even her women. We have narrowed our poll down to 9 choices, but feel free to sing the praises of others:

I will but life here in the village is very laid back and not much to write about. It is the polar <a href="http://rvgyokz.com">optipose</a> of America so maybe something interesting from that perspective. For the first time in a while I have time to write and it also is a means to communicate in English which I only do with Deuan now.

This is a tough time of year. In addition to being tired from a long <a href="http://kdbtsi.com">scoohl</a> year, you have to muster up the energy to go back to your passport country and either tell everyone about your great adventures or deal with no one wanting to hear about your great adventures. It can be exhausting even without any soul searching!

I would float the notion thgouh that these observations are not mistakes made by Thai managers, rather than clumsy interpretations of intended meaning viewed through somewhat unsophisticated cultural filters on the part of certain non-Thai's who have found themselves living and working in Thailand. The problem is a circular one summed up by the When in Rome metaphor, or it's Thai equivalent เข้าเมืองตาหลิ่วต้องหลิ่ว ตาตาม or When you enter the winking city you have to wink as well .Sound advice but simplistic and ultimately impractical how does one behave like a Roman if one has no idea how Romans behave. The result is an attempt to understand something based on the only tool one has one's own native cultural filters resulting in a superficial and rudimentary at best understanding of both the cultural and cognitive processes that are involved in Thai behviour at the cultural and group level. When the only tool one has is a hammer, then everything begins to look like a nail. A pessimistic view perhaps? Not so at all. Just not a quick fix. The cultural filters necessary to begin to develop an understanding of Thainess can be developed it takes time and proactive effort. And not months or even years. At least a decade. And without developing a sound grasp of the language, then your efforts will only achieve superficial results. The views above aren't new but certainly persistent people don't know what they don't know. I am aware I have flipped the onus here from the article, but the reality is emphasis should be on the foreign national not the Thai national as it is the former in this context who is present with the opportunity through the opportunity for cultural immersion.

My reason for choosing sex as a reason for visitors to come and re-come(pardon the pun) to Thailand stems from a military man I brought here some years back. His comment after a strenuous weekend was, and I quote, "Andy, I have traveled around the world at least twice and I have never seen so much unsold flesh in my life". End quote. Nuff said.

well, it used to be the low prices, beautiful unspoilt beaches, and friendly people, but they all seem to be a dieing breed these days
