Thailand’s Way of Life
The exotic way of life and tropical climate are the main draws for people to the Thai Lifestyle. If you want to experience authentic and unadulterated Thai culture, chiang rai and chiang mai are the places to go, rather than Bangkok or the beaches elsewhere. Regardless of where one goes in Thailand, a taste of true Thai culture can be savore even in Phuket, Khon Kaen, or Bangkok.
Thailand is a deeply religious country, with Buddhism as its primary religion. Thus, each morning in the early hours, one will see monks walking barefoot in saffron robes, begging locals for water and food to offer to the Lord Buddha. The prayers and chanting heard throughout Thailand’s many temples and worship houses provide a serene and soothing experience. Centuries-old temple, or wat as they are known locally, contain stunning ancient relics, and many have golden leaf spire.
The tuk-tuk, a small three-wheeled motorbike with open sides, is a popular mode of transportation in cities and towns alike.Due to a lack of bus stop, pickup truck with roof known as songthaew is use.

Tasting and savoring the local Thai cuisine is an excellent way to get a sense of the indigenous way of life. Aside from being delicious, the food allows you to get a true sense of the culture. Foreigners frequently choose the ostensibly more secure restaurants, eateries, and food joints. However, the most authentic and delicious versions of Thai cuisine can only be found on the streets. The majority of the street food stalls specialize in chicken, pork, duck, and beef dishes, as well as noodle or rice-based dishes. A tip for those concerned about street food hygiene is to follow the crowd and choose a joint with the highest draw, as the locals know where to go. Even the weakest foreign stomachs will benefit from a hot cup of noodle soup.
A trip to the local markets is a more interesting way to get a feel for Thai life. Neighborhood town markets are the Thai equivalents of department stores in provincial minor capitals.
