    I can't say I ever felt much culture shock arriving in Thailand: but then I'd just been to India so it seemed really easy. However here is a great little article on the noise, the small, the perversions and the famous Thai smiles: http://tikikiki.com/2010/10/culture-shock-in-thailand-5-things-you’ll-just-have-to-get-over-sooner-or-later/

    Noise, smell and heat can be a bit confronting if you are from somewhere like Europe. almost 7 years ago

    She smiles, you guys talk, she seems like a fine lady... then you realize much later that she is in fact a dude! BTW, I'm not actually joking here. Words of wisdom, check carefully right from the start. Good luck and have a great holiday there. almost 7 years ago

    Traffic is not like those in the west. Not only is traffic bad, the Thais drive in their own way. Zebra crossing doesn't work like those in the west. You must beware of all cars- even on zebra crossing. Motorbike are also hazardous.

    Every time I see a foreigner cross a road in Thailand, I get very nervous!

    Please look BOTH WAYS when you cross a road. Sometimes there are bus lanes going the OPPOSITE DIRECTION of the road!! almost 7 years ago
