What do Thais think about Russians: 4 misconceptions and 2 accurate observations
3. Travelers from Russia are just “legged wallets” for locals
False, although there are specifics. In Thailand, they are well aware that everyone has a different budget, and for each they will find something to offer. Tourists with modest requests are also quite welcome guests for Thais. They also like that our people do not bargain much, unlike the same Indians. Many Thais consider us careless and generous – and are welcomed with open arms in shops, restaurants and other establishments.
4. Guests from the Russian Federation ignore the rules and laws
Rather the opposite. In particular, Russians while driving observe traffic rules much more carefully than locals. They are not as noisy as the Chinese ready to wake up the whole hotel at 3am. And they don’t swim in depth without knowing how to swim, unlike guests from Southeast Asia, who regularly add work to rescuers.

5. Tourists from the Russian Federation are rude and even aggressive
Alas, it's true. They really think so. For Thais who are accustomed to restrain their emotions, even a conversation in raised tones is bewildering. And the screams, demands and too emotional behavior of some tourists from Russia completely provoke rejection. It is strictly forbidden to communicate with local residents in this manner. /ih/8iihngwoiwoww0cc8koggwcsk.jpg” media=”(max-width: 549px)”>
