Thailand and its Lack of Colonialism

Gilles Alter Ego
 Story posted by Gilles Alter Ego on November 30, 2014 at 12:36:10 :: Culture & History

Most guidebooks praise Thailand for never been colonized. But has that really been to the country's advantage? Perhaps Thailand would have benefited from a system of education, law and order that a colonizer would leave behind, as well as better trade routes and perhaps clearer borders and a larger land area.

Dragon Boat Festival and the Custom of Eating Wrapped Sticky Rice

Admin Locator
 Story posted by Admin Locator on June 02, 2014 at 06:46:20 :: Culture & History

The Dragon Boat Festival (端午节) and the culture around it are by origin purely Chinese and not so well known in Thailand, outside of the Chinese ethnic groups. There are Dragon Boat Festivals in Phuket and Pattaya, but not in Chiang Mai.
Nevertheless, some Chinese in Chiang Mai do celebrate it, by eating 'bajaang' (บะจ่าง): little packs of sticky rice with meat wrapped in leaves that you can steam and eat.

Songkran or the Festival of Water

Admin Locator
 Story posted by Admin Locator on April 13, 2014 at 11:22:37 :: Culture & History

Songkran is the start of the traditional Thai New Year. It is celebrated during a range of 3-5 days, depending on the region in Thailand. Although Thailand already adopted the Western New Year for quite a while, Songkran is still an important festival and many official businesses will be closed for one or a few days during Songkran, while others will stay open to benefit from the peak in customers and then close for a few days after Songkran. The origins of (the word) Songkran are Sanskrit and its meaning denotes an astrological change.

Makha Bucha Day and … Valentine's Day

 Story posted by Admin Locator on February 13, 2014 at 05:52:56 :: Culture & History

Makha Bucha Day (or otherwise spelled as Magha Puja, in Thai: วันมาฆบูชา) is the day that the Buddha recited his Fundamental Teaching (Ovadha Patimokkha or โอวาทปาฏิโมกข์) to his disciples. It is said that 1,250 monks came from different places to pay hommage to the Buddha at Veluwan Temple in Rajgaha City of Magaha State, without any appointment.
This year's Makha Buch Day is on Friday 14th Feb, which also happens to be ... Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day in Thailand really has a very different energy from the Buddist Day, of course. Thai lovers don't take Valentine's Day as seriously as in some other countries, however a lot of people take it as a lovers' day. Every year there are concerns about the high number of pregnancies under 18 that occur on Valentine's Day.

Constitution Day and the State of Thai Democracy

Admin Locator
 Story posted by Admin Locator on December 09, 2013 at 11:12:23 :: Culture & History

With the current political unrest in Thailand and both parties accusing one another of being unconstitutional, the Constitution appears to be a hot item in topicality.
Constitution Day commemorates the first 'permanent' Constitution of Thailand that was implemented on December 10, 1932. Since its birth, it has been amended many times: officially one counts the present one as the 18th amended Constitution.
In a way, it reflects the political instability of the country during all these years. Many amendments / Charters to the Constitution were made after a military coup and the latest Constitution has been effective since the 2007 military coup.

November 20th in Thailand is designated to the Royal Thai Navy. It's not an official holiday and there aren't any celebrations, but just last weekend the navy rescued 157 tourists that were stuck on Koh Racha and the Similan islands, south of Phuket, due to bad weather, so obviously we can't do without it. Tour operators decided to head out despite the bad weather and put the lives of their passengers at risk.

 Story posted by KAMVADEE CHALIAEW on August 31, 2013 at 06:34:41 :: Culture & History

1st of September is Seub Nakhasathian Memorial Day.

He was a project leader for wildlife evacuation in the Chiew Larn Dam project in 1986, where he tried to evacuate animals from an area over 100,000 acres (400 km2) with a budget of only 800,000 baht. He managed to save hundreds of animals but he was aware that many more were unable to escape and died. This experience, that he saw as a failure of the Chiew Larn project, and having seen many people trying to invade the forest, led him to protest against further logging and dam construction projects.

Lanna Flags

 Story posted by KAMVADEE CHALIAEW on June 22, 2013 at 06:46:55 :: Culture & History

If you have ever been inside a Thai temple you probably noticed the banners hang on sticks. You can also see them in town, at restaurants or at some traditional shops. In the local Lanna language (‘pasa muang’ or คำเมือง) it’s called ‘tung’ (ตุง) means flag. Besides being a decorative item, it has a particular meaning and it is used for different purposes.

In general, Lanna people use ‘tung’ for three different kinds of purposes: for auspicious ceremonies, funerals and for decoration. When used for auspicious ceremonies, it is believed to help avert misfortune.

Being a Parasite

Admin Locator
 Story posted by Admin Locator on June 16, 2013 at 07:10:41 :: Culture & History

Like other languages, Thai language is full of idioms. This plant called 'Ka Fak' or กาฝาก, however beautiful it may be, is associated with a negative meaning in Thai. Growing on trees without having a stem and roots in the ground on its own, it's used to refer to people who cannot stand on their own feet but are using others for their purposes without offering anything in return. It can apply to people in companies, organisations, at college, or within a family. "That guy is such a 'Ka Fak', such a user, don't trust him." You can admire it in the garden of Suan Paak, while enjoying a good Thai meal or in Nakara Jardin during a High Tea.

The Thai and Spirituality

Admin Locator
 Story posted by Admin Locator on June 12, 2013 at 05:41:41 :: Culture & History

Thailand is a Buddhist country and Chiang Mai has probably the highest concentration of temples anywhere in the country. If you come from the West, you may feel attracted to chill out from your stressed life style, to empty your mind and perhaps do a meditation retreat. Meditation here is mainly Vippassana: sitting or walking meditation, and there are many places where you can do that. A few popular places are Wat Doi Suthep, Wat Rampoeng and Wat Chom Thong. I can’t say I’ve ever seen anyone coming out of a retreat being more ‘enlightened’ or fundamentally changed, but if you think it may benefit you, go for it.

Kawila and the Burmese

 Story posted by Admin Locator on June 11, 2013 at 07:52:36 :: Culture & History

What do you need to know about Chiang Mai’s history to be well enough prepared to talk with Thai people? Nothing really. Most Thai people don’t know really their own history. Espcially youngsters don’t remember anything BF (Before Facebook). All that most locals remember is that the Burmese attacked them numerous times and that they were finally liberated from them. Have a look in a Thai cinema: there is almost always some movie about Thai fighting the evil Burmese. Even now, some Thai may look down on Burmese as being inferior as many have come to Thailand to do migrant labour.
