Thais inherently dislike foreigners. They see us as uncultured barbarians coz we don't hide our emotions like they do. Thai kids are taught at school that Thailand is the center of the universe and hence they consider themselves a superior race. Then again, they are both tolerant and enterprising and happy for farang to come to Thailand as tourist so that they can fleece us for money. They think we ignorant and stupid.
:facepalm:
have met a few thai's that might fit this, but the majority dont feel this way at all.

You don't see it with their poker faces (aka land of smiles) but that's what they're thinking. And it shows with how they treat you. They've become so jaded with foreigners.. The different attitude towards foreigners in Cambodia is refreshing. I'm done with Thailand.

Pros and cons for each

UPDATED 2018.

Thailand

Baht showing signs of weakening.

-CONS

Greedy locals.

Being called farang every 2 minutes.

Lots of scowling locals (mostly BKK)

beer and smokes are EU prices.

Feels like they only care about money.




-Cambodia

PROS

0.50$ beer.

Warmer vibe from locals.

Countryside has more feeling than LoS.

Better english spoken.

CONS

Getting expensive

USD/KHR dual currency.

Lot of low quality food around.

Not as "fun" as it used to be.

Yes I know! That at the time was the joke or pun, to drinking outside 7/11 but it went over his head. But then again it never happened and never will.

I live in Thailand, I've never been to Cambodia, so I am reading this thread with much interest and amusement too. Thanks for all the posts.

head away from the main tourist areas or get to know a Thai and Thailand is still the land of smiles

If you ask a thai who he would rather not visit his country;
Chinese, French & Russians

Thai's were never like Khmers

Thailand; Immigration hassles, every three months to check in like you're on parole and once a year requires a shitload of paperwork.
Baht rising against the dollar.
The generals treat the population like children - booze can be purchased only at certain hours.
Lèse majesté crimes and sentences are outrageous.
Worship of Kings is abhorrent to Americans.....I speak for all of them, LOL.
Absolutely ridiculous silly censorship on Western films shown on Thai TV.
Taxed the Hell out of wine because the Thai beer makers are connected to the Generals.
They brain-wash their children in school to respect authority and never question it (Generals and Royalty are one in the same).
Arguably the most corrupt government on the planet.
