Is that why they capitulated to the Japanese without a fight in 1941?  Or aren't we supposed to remember that? Is not Chinese money 'reshaping the country' now?  Or aren't we supposed to notice that? I like the country very much, but I see its flaws as well.

Instantly stopped reading at the "history" of the Thai flag. It factually does not stand for strength, faith, and loyalty. Yet another lazy AI-generated click farm for The Thaiger at the cost of providing no useful information.

People who want to learn about Thailand, evidently. And if they come to such an article to learn about Thailand, only to encounter complete and utter bullshit, they will not learn about Thailand.

As someone who cares quite a bit about Thailand, that annoys me. Thank you.

I've come upon 100's of these sort of PR articles

 

They are easily recognized as such and move on to a proper article

Tuk tuks are nor unique to Thailand, you can see fhem in Cambodia, India, Peru...

They're overpriced in BKK, and some towns like Pattaya, people just use songthiews and tuk tuks are rarely seen. Bike taxi is cheapest, fastest, and more fun. Metered cab is best for certain kinds of journey. Tuk tuk is for when you have a short trip with shopping or other moderate luggage. Too much to carry comfortably, too light to need a taxi.

Well....in reality most those who visit Thailand are not really keen to learn about Thailand, except to learn and explore Thai woman.

You guys will get worked up over anything on here

It's an innocuous article promoting Thailand 

Who gives a rats ass

Then it should be noted as such. e.g. Promotion, Advertising, Opinion.

Most????

 

25mil people visited Thailand

 

I don't know what type of places you stay in but the vast majority of the people in the hotels I stay in would have no clue about the RLD areas 

Well except that they heard of it

 

And a huge % of those people would be, in fact, experiencing all kinds of Thai historical or cultural attractions
