I've recently set my foot in Thailand, aptly called the land of smiles! It was an impulsive decision to just travel somewhere solo and Thailand happened. While I went there to do what everyone goes there for, Thailand taught me a lot more and ended up being one of the best trips of my life.

I absolutely loved the attitude of Thailand people. I didn't find an iota of frustration in them for anything. They are always very peaceful, smiling, sweet, warm and welcoming people including the immigration officers and security personnel. :)

The second thing I observed is the level of attention to detail these people have in everything they do. I tried to capture their craftsmanship but keep in mind that photos do no justice.

The third thing I would remember about Thailanders from my trip is their insane ability to do math. I gave 200 thai baht in a metro station and mentioned the name of my destination station at the counter. Within a second, the lady at the counter calculated how much was the difference between 200 and the fare, took out exact change and pushed the change towards me. Before I realised what just happened, she said "next". That was the most efficient workforce I've ever witnessed.
