Thailand is one of the most culturally rich countries in the South East Asia. It holds a unique position in the region, as a country that remained unaffected by the strong colonizing powers of Europe in the early centuries. Made up of around 96% Thai, 2% Burmese, and other ethnic groups such as Chinese, Vietnamese, Khmer, Hmong, and Mein, as the balance, Thailand is diverse in its ethnicity and culture. However, the most important and prominent cultural values of Thai people have emerged with a strong background in Buddhist philosophy. Self-control, respect for elders and for those ahead of you in the social hierarchy, and friendly attitude are the essentials among moral values of the people in the country. People are often compelled to maintain their calm and dignity, even at difficult times, as the expression of emotions in public is viewed with a disapproving eye.

Even though you can read pages and pages of a country and its history, there is no better way to get the real experience of its culture and its people than paying a visit yourself. You can make your expedition worthwhile by choosing a hotel in Asoke to stay during the visit. From there, you can easily roam around to see the city’s famous cultural centres, museums, and art galleries. It is not very difficult to find a good stay, as there are many options like AVANI Atrium Bangkok that gives you the chance to meet locals and mingle with the city life. Knowing the basic rules of Thai culture, your life in Thailand will be much easier than you ever anticipated.
