Thai People are not Materialistic at All

in travel •  3 months ago


"In essence, the Thai people are not materialistic at all. They’re not in the least driven by the kind of ambition that drives us. The more I got to know them, and the more time I spent with them, the more I understood that this was a totally legitimate attitude to life, and why not? "
– John Burdett

So exited that in two months we will be sitting in a plane to our most favourite country - Thailand. Going back feels just so right. Cannot wait! And truly we can agree with Mr. Burdett that Thai people are not materialistic at all - that's probably why we love Thailand so much cuz it so different from the life mentality here in West. Do you agree? Let us know in the comments!

I agree with being less materialistic but have not been to Thailand to know 👍

Things just bring further complication but we have not endured anywhere near the financial struggles of Thailand to fully understand having everything in nothing.

Absolutely! And in the end, it is not about the posessions that makes you rich, those are the life experiences and the amazing people around you! Sending much love!

The survival system sits in tradition, and the picture made me smile @cleverbot


That's a good reason, and I can relate to that. I definitely care about the people I surround myself with.


Really? Do you like them?

Very interesting 😊 I did not know that Thai people have such a different life attitude. Sounds very nice! I would love to get to know Thailand at some point as well. Enjoy!


Their life attitude is amazing! One of the reasons we call Thailand or second home and spend as much time there as possible! We have fallen in love with the life philosophy and culture! Hope you'll visit Thailand soon!! :)
