    Culture

    by dragontml Written Dec 8, 2003

    Thailand is located at the meeting point of the two great cultural systems of Asia Chinese and Indian. In everyday life, Chinese culture has mixed very well with the Thai, whereas in Thai court culture, which has been based mainly on Buddhism and Brahmanism, India has exerted a strong influence. Thai culture can be divided into 3 aspects: linguistic culture, court culture and traditional culture.

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Remember to grab one of the yellow packs when you arrive in Phuket town. Very helpful for first timers to Phuket as it contains maps, vouchers and discount coupons. The best part is that ITS FREE!!!

    Bar game

    by susu77 Updated Oct 23, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can see this game played everywhere in bars. The goal is to have your nail first inside the tree stump. Everybody gets one hit on your own turn. And the hammer needs to be upside down.

    Chinese

    This picture was taking at the top of the main temple at Wat Chalong. Phuket has a multicultural society and this section of the grounds was styled in the form of a traditional Chinese garden.

    A Thai Sunset

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The sun sets over the Indian Ocean. The end of the day's adventures. But given that this is Thailand, a full night of tropical breezes, cool drinks and hot, spicy food awaits.

    In Thailand 220 Volts, 50 Hz is standard. The plugs is a 2 pin round fitting although the newer buildings/hotels have an earth plug and maybe 3 pin sockets.
