Diving into wonders of Thailand

We wanted to peek behind tourist hotspots and dive into the heart of Thailand with our ThisWorld original film – jump in to discover Thailand like never before!

Did you know that Bangkok is home to over 11 million people, making it one of the most populous cities in the world? The  skyscrapers that touch the skyline and the glorious Buddhist temples, Bangkok is a city of contrasts, where modernity and tradition collide.

With over 400 Buddhist temples scattered throughout the city, Bangkok is a treasure chest of spiritual wonders. And when the sun sets, Bangkok transforms into a pulsating metropolis, alive with light, laughter, and the heady aroma of street food. The vibrant night markets of Chinatown left us speechless – but not hungry! Thai cuisine is unique and definitely left us both happy and full.

The Art of Muay Thai: A Cultural Tradition

Muay Thai, also known as the “Art of Eight Limbs,” holds a special place in Thai culture. We had the privilege of meeting Dom, a passionate Muay Thai instructor, who shared with us the rich history and significance of this ancient martial art. More than just a sport, Muay Thai brings people together, instilling discipline, respect, and camaraderie among its practitioners.

Embracing Buddhist Values

In Thailand, Buddhism is not just a religion but a way of life. The Thai people believe in the power of kindness, compassion, and generosity, guided by the principle of karma. Regardless of one’s religious beliefs, the heart is what truly matters, fostering a sense of unity and harmony among all who call Thailand home.

Koh Panyee Island: A Community Resilient in Adversity

Located in the pristine waters of southern Thailand, Koh Panyee Island is home to a tight-knit community of fishermen and their families. Despite facing challenges, including the absence of tourism during the pandemic, the islanders have shown remarkable resilience, turning to traditional fishing practices to sustain their way of life.

Preserving Cultural Heritage: The Long Neck Tribe

Our journey also took us to the remote village of Ban Rak Thai, where we encountered the fascinating Long Neck Tribe. Originating from Myanmar, these women are known for their distinctive brass neck rings, a tradition that has been passed down for generations.

Thank you Thailand

As our journey through Thailand draws to a close, we know that we’ll be missing country’s boundless beauty, rich cultural heritage, and warm hospitality. Special thank you goes to our talented production, Nick Shannon and Kian Tye for making this film come alive.
