    Tomboy and things relate to them.

    Hello. I'm an Asia. English isn't my native language and Thái is not either. Sorry.

    Here the problem, It's only 3 weeks left that me and my friend will go to Thailand for travelling. I have a friend look a little bit boyish with short hair, oxfort shoes, pants and shirt. I don't know but when we going out together we look like a gay couple she only wear skirts and high heels in her country because she doesn't want to get uncomfortable when travelling abroad (Especially in Thailand. It's our first overseas trip) We plan to spend our first three days in Pattaya and two days in Bankok. So I have a couple questions to ask.

    1/ Is Thai people okay with that? (tomboy and homosexual)
    2/ Is it true that woman can't visit churches, temples if they wearing skirts or reveal clothing?
    3/ I've heard that Thai people always put men before woman. Is it true?
    4/ They said Thailand is the land of smiles but also the land of lies. not in all cases but I heard a lot lately (from friends and others)
    5/ Is Thailand becoming more or less violent? Since Thailand's King passed away, I don't know if Thailand is safer or not?

    I'm sorry for asking so many questions. I can't help but feeling worry. Thank you very much for taking your time to read all this

    1) For the most part, Thais are ok with it.

    2) Depends on the temple. But, if dress codes are enforced, many will have "loaner" attire. But, do keep in mind that we are talking places of worship.

    3) Thai men usually put themselves before women. Thailand is quite a patriarchal society.

    4) Thais, in general, are quite friendly. And, if you ever need any assistance, mot will do their best to help out. However, most are fairly shy. So, if you come across are friendly Thai, striking up a chat, there is a good chance it could lead to a scam.

    5) Thailand is as safe as most other countries. If you stay out of trouble at home, odds are good you will stay out of trouble in Thailand. Don't get drunk, stay out into the early morning hours, and keep alert.

    Pattaya can get a little wild. Keep you wits about you.

    If anything, the passing of the King has brought added security.

    I am a bit confused. Are you saying she wears skirts and high heels to avoid feeling uncomfortable? Sorry, but I think I am missing something here. As a woman, I feel uncomfortable wearing high heels, as compared to flats. More so when I travel and need to walk long distances. So, what do you mean?

    We plan to spend our first three days in Pattaya and two days in Bankok. So I have a couple questions to ask

    1/ Is Thai people okay with that? (tomboy and homosexual)--Yes.
    2/ Is it true that woman can't visit churches, temples if they wearing skirts or reveal clothing?-- No VERY SHORT skirts and skimpy clothes.
    3/ I've heard that Thai people always put men before woman. Is it true?- You mean when walking? I don't think so.
    4/ They said Thailand is the land of smiles but also the land of lies. not in all cases but I heard a lot lately (from friends and others)--Like in Vietnam, which you indicated as your location, there are liars and honest people in Thailand.
    [5/ Is Thailand becoming more or less violent? Since Thailand's King passed away, I don't know if Thailand is safer or not? --There are many tourists still coming to Thailand. I also will visit soon. I think that as long as we avoid trouble spots, take utmost care and behave responsibly, we will be fine.

    Re: Tomboy and things relate to them.

    Regarding when walking, when my wife and I are in the cities, we walk side by side. In the village, she will walk behind, because that is the custom.
    Things change when we go into Combodia though, as she walks in front due to the threat of unexploded land mines.
    But because I love her, we usually take the kids with us, so they go in front to give me that extra buffer.
    Cheers.
    If it's not true, don't say it. If it's not yours, don't take it. If it's not right, don't do it.
