How do khmers compare with thais?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I don't think there is much difference if you're comparing people in rural Cambodia and rural Thailand. Let's not generalize whole nations of people based on a handful of interactions with them.

On the visit to Thailand, was in the back of the tour car with missus, and the Thai driver and guide in the front. The Thai were speaking very softly, like the kind of whispering one does when saying bad stuff behind one’s back. Was told by the guide this is the normal volume for Thai, unless they are those ‘other’ (aka, been polluted by living near the Cambodian border). Also told that honking while driving was a sign of rudeness.

Just a single observation from the eternal tourist to the KOW.
