people did, and for the most part it is true. As for Thai manners, it seems once a Thai person leaves high school, all the manners they have learnt cease to exist and they live the rest of their lives with bad manners to anyone they come across whether they know them or not. Thai People are Selfish, anyone who has driven on a Thai road knows what Thai people are really like. Yes this is because Thai people are too lazy to get a bin, if they get a bin they will have to clean the bin because people throw waste into it, they are too lazy to do that so instead they'll just throw the trash. The general idea that Thai people are all the same is not true, there are actually 4 different type of Thai people that are generally segregated by where the Thai person comes from. Thai people really are friendly with the exception of most of the Thai's who were born in the northern most parts of Thailand. I'm not a great fan of body massages but thought I'd check this place out when I was in the area. Thai people are super friendly to foreigners as well as amongst themselves. The mamasan is a great lady, speaks excellent English and has none of the pushy tactics sometimes found in the main Pattaya soapies.
