The attractions of Thailand are endless - ancient monasteries, ruined cities, Buddhist monks, rave parties, colorful hill tribes, exotic wildlife, floating markets, dense rainforests, tropical islands, pristine coral reefs, and golden beaches. Then there´s Bangkok, the liveliest capital city in Southeast Asia, which would justify a trip to Thailand in itself. Don´t rush to try and fit everything in. You´ll almost certainly start your adventures in Bangkok and we suggest that you don´t hurry around. Alternatively, allow a couple of days to soak up the capital´s lively atmosphere, including at least one night on the notorious Khao San Road, before going north to Thailand´s second city Chiang Mai or south to the islands. To do both, you´ll need at least a fortnight; if you´ve got a few weeks to spare, add the infamous Bridge Over the River Kwai and Kanchanaburi to your list. In this Thailand Travel Guide, you will also be discovering the notorious cities and provinces that are Pattaya and Phuket. They are world-renowned and popular for their nightlife and scenery. Pattaya is always a lively and a fun city to be in. This vibrant coastal city shot to fame in the early 1980s and remained so. From dawn to dusk, Pattaya´s beaches are always brimming with life, as sun worshippers and water sports lovers constantly take to the waters. After dark, the action shifts to the streets, as partygoers explore its lively nightlife scene, where partying and drinking continue until early hours. With stunning tropical sunsets and spectacular scenery, a warm blue sea awaits you at Asia´s most popular beach destination. Phuket provides an unbeatable combination of silky, clean white sand and palm tree-lined beaches with great value accommodation and superb hospitality. ungekürzt. Language: English.

Kathoeys are more visible and more accepted in Thai culture than transgender or transsexual people are in Western countries or the Indian subcontinent. Several popular Thai models, singers and movie stars are kathoeys, and Thai newspapers often print photos of the winners of female and kathoey beauty contests side by side. The phenomenon is not restricted to urban areas; there are kathoeys in most villages, and kathoey beauty contests are commonly held as part of local fairs. Although the term ladyboy is rather ambiguous, simply put, it is a male who dresses as and carries out the identity of a woman. Though the term is often translated as transgender, transgender is rarely used in Thailand, instead they use the term Kathoey. This term can now also be used to refer to any male homosexual and was originally used to refer to intersex people. Due to this term becoming so broad many choose to use the English word to explain a homosexual male dressing as a woman as a ladyboy, this eliminates much of the confusion. The term can also be meant as an insult, especially to those who are trying to completely alter their identity to that of a woman. Ladyboys suggest that they are still men who are merely dressed as women. The term is used rather loosely at times and can be used to refer to any male who is acting with feminine qualities. Personally most of the women prefer to call themselves a transformed goddess or a second type of woman Heinz Duthel, Master in Philosophy.

This book features research papers that examine a host of contemporary issues in Thailand. Coverage includes culture, gender violence, tourism, human trafficking, environmental and ecological issues, sustainability and the sufficiency economy, the (mis)handling of elephants, and more. It features a sociological and anthropological perspective with a dash of communication for sustainable social change. The papers investigate the various phases of communication technology and its impact on cultural change in the country. They explore the use of social networks and privacy issues as well as ethical journalism in the contexts of Thai Buddhism, Thai culture, and other enabling environmental factors. The contributors focus on documentary research of both quantitative and qualitative data on Thai social change as a consequence of globalization and digital technology. They first provide a general overview of social media and communication in the country. Next, the authors go on to explore the specifics of digital communication. This includes a look at its impact on the various ways of Thai communication given politico-economic and religious influences.
