- The modern Nation of Thailand is a multicultural society. The predominant Thai culture identity and civilisation emerged as a by product of the interaction of the indigenous population with Tai and other immigrant peoples ( including Chinese and Indian ).
- When people call themselves ‘’ Thai ’’ they mean they are in the political sense, subjects of the Thailand nation. If explored further the word has a cultural and, for many, a linguistic sense. However not all Thailand citizens speak Thai and of those who do so it is a second language for them.
- This Thai identity in its present form is relatively recent.
- For your travel information guide we extensively detail ethnic diversity in Thailand and the resulting varieties of festivals, customs and beliefs.
