While shopping at a handicraft store (popular with the Japanese tourists), I saw this leaflet. As soon as I saw that it was in Chinese, I was amused. Given the recent reputation of the Chinese in Thailand, specifically Chiang Mai I took it, thinking it was in Chinese, English and Thai. Plus I was curious to know what TAT wanted to say to the tourists.
But it’s not in Thai. What can I say? I’m disappointed it’s not in Thai too. If you were Thai, wouldn’t you want to know what was being said?
The funny thing about rules is, it should apply to everyone. Often people follow the behavior of others – especially when in a new country or place, so they can understand what is considered acceptable. But what do I know, the rules are in English, so that means they are directed at me.
