Thailand is located on an Asian peninsula surrounded by Malaysia, Myanmar, Laos, and Cambodia. Its geographic location plays a major role in its culture. With an estimated seventy million people residing in the country today, Thailand can be viewed as a “very rich and delicious stew” of the cultural diversity of Southeast Asia. This presentation will provide a snapshot of Thailand’s culture and its impact on the day-to-day life of the people living there as well as those who visit. The notion of Thai Time, the reason why Thailand is often called the “Land of Smiles,” Thai values, beliefs, and teachings, interpersonal relationships, and communication strategies will be discussed.
