Project Review

The culture of Thailand has been greatly influenced by Buddhism. But there have been other dominating influences of Hinduism as well along with the effects of the repeated invasions of Myanmar, Laos and also the Chinese immigrants. Traditional visual arts in Thailand bear a great influence of Buddhism but contemporary Thai art is a combination of the modern techniques along with the traditional styles. Crafts include textiles and decorative items that bear the distinct Thai style.The most distinctive Thai custom is the Wai that bears resemblance to the Indian namaste demonstration of affection amongst friends are common in public. It is considered rude to put the feet above someone's head or step on a Thai coin as it has the King's head engraved upon it.Thailand is a land where the latest styles and traditional crafts have been well blended and there is some thing or the other for every buyer irrespective of the budget.
