"Land Of Smiles?" Bangkok by faridah

Bangkok Travel Guide: 10,743 reviews and 24,252 photos

Busy ,Dusty and Not so Friendly people...

I have tried but I could not fall in love with Thailand. It does not warm my heart like the other countries had. I met with quite a lot of rude people, not only me but everyone in my tour group. My tour guide tried to be nice but gets very pissed off when we dont buy the things from the stores he brought us to . And, he keeps going on and on about how gentle the Thais are.

Maybe they just do not like Asians and especially those that dress as a Muslim.And I was not rude cos I always believe in being ultra nice and friendly when you are in another country. Of course, there are a those that was nice but all in all its not really The Land Of Smiles. I enjoyed Beijing so much better with their so called 'rude' people, at least they were genuine.To say that I hate the place is too harsh, I am just not in love with it......

    It was unfortunate that you could not enjoy BKK. This place sure has more to offer. Touts are everywhere a nuicence. They are not the real face of any country. In fact the tourists gets pissed off by their pestering.
