Observations of a Farang

I’m a Farang. If you’ve got European ancestry, you are too. Although the word exists in many linguistic forms throughout the Siam and Khmer Empires and beyond, this Thai version is the most well known. Its widespread use lends credence to the theory it entered the region long ago as a corruption of the Persian word for “foreigner”, though occasionally it’s used as a slur directed at Euro-males escorting young Asian women. You’ll...

With the sun reflecting off the turquoise water and palm trees swaying just beyond the sand, I...

Chinatown in Bangkok, Thailand

Having previously lived in China, I had to know what Bangkok’s Chinatown was like. I took the skytrain to Saphan Taksin (the last stop on the Silom line) and then rode the Chao Phraya River Express north to Tha Ratchawong where I could walk into Chinatown. I walked straight off the ferry dock, following the people and the pungent aromas into the heart of the activity. All of Bangkok is congested, but nothing like this. Chinatown in...
