New Year Resolution
I love Thailand and I'd been here for over 2 years now. I've always talked about learning the local language but always put it aside. There is no excuse. Now that 2021 has started, I'm attempting to speak and understand (not read and write...not yet) one more time through online materials - pdf, video, translators, etc. Maybe I can make feeble attempts at actual conversation with Thai people. I'll give this an honest 1 hour/day effort. Let's see where it takes me.

Learning the Thai Language

Thai Language Overview

  1. Thai is tonal - words with same spelling will mean differently depending on tone used - mid, high, low, rising, or falling. Mai has 5 different meanings depending on how it is pronounced.
  2. Thai language uses 44 consonants, 15 vowels (English only has 5 vowels) and 5 tone markers.
  3. Nouns - nouns have no gender, no plural/singular.
    collective, use phuak. "we" - phuak rao, "we (masculine)" - phuak phom, "pack of dogs" - phuak ma
  4. Verbs - Thai verbs are not conjugated, but you can use adverbs to denote a tense.

    past - "did" (dai), before the verb. e.g. He ate. Khao dai kin.
    "already" (laau), after the verb. e.g. He ate. Khao kin laau.
    or both: Khao dai kin laau.
    "yesterday" (mua-wan), after the verb. e.g. He ate yesterday Khao kin mua-wan

    present - "eat-ing" (kamlang kin), before the verb, or (yu), after the verb, or both. e.g. He is eating. Khao kamlang kin yu.

    future - "will" (ja), before the verb. He will eat (Khao ja kin.) To make it negative, "I will not eat.", add mai after ja - (Phom ja mai kin.)
  5. Possesive - "belonging to" - khong, "my bread" - khanumpang khong phom - bread belongs to me
  6. krap is used at the end of the sentence to soften the delivery (more polite)
  7. na is used at the end of a question to soften the delivery (more polite)
  8. wa is used at the end of the sentence to stress the delivery (if you are angry)
  9. yang "yet" and mai dai "cannot" are combined to say 'not yet'. Phom yang mai dai kin, "I have not yet eaten".
  10. Question words like "why" (tham-mai), "what" (arai), "where" (tee-nine) and "when" (mu-rai) are placed at the end of a sentence. "What will I eat?" (Phom ja kin arai?)

Game Plan

  1. learn the overall Thai language structure - gender on nouns, nuances
  2. create a simple daily blog in English (using real words I use in daily conversation) and translate that blog in Thai
  3. read that blog to a Thai and see if she understands
  4. increase my vocabulary by 5 words/day
  5. easier to learn when dropping the prepositions, conjunctions, etc. It will produce broken Thai, but it would still be understandable (Alan tip)

Chiang Mai FYI / Tips
  • crop-burning season in Chiang Mai is between late Feb to early April. But laws change everytime. This year, 2019, there is a 61-day ban on burning so the farmers started burning early. When my plane was approaching Chiang Mai on Jan 24, 2019, there was already a thick blanket of smog covering the entire city (and beyond). But within the city itself, you won't feel it (but that doesn't mean the air is healthy). To monitor air conditions in real time, refer to site: Chiang Mai Air Pollution: Real-time Air Quality Index (AQI)
  • hot season begins March and lasts until June
  • wet season begins July and lasts until September
  • best time to visit Chiang Mai is mid-September to mid-February - after the monsoon and before the burning
  • you have to try Khao Soi, this is north Thailand's culinary staple
  • the tourist area where most of the hotels, restaurants, ticket offices, tour operators are, is located in the Old City
  • to exchange your dollars to Thai Baht, the Super Rich Money Exchange give the best rates. There are many branches scattered around Chiang Mai
  • get a red cab (songthao) outside the train station for Baht 50 (instead of paying B100 if inside the train station) to Old City - if you haggle nicely enough...I did!
  • shared red taxi (songthao) - B30 standard fare plying all over Old City
  • for only B50/day, best to rent a bike to go around the Old City - it's a 2.5km2 with lots to discover
  • FREE daily yoga classes from 9:00am to 10:15am at Nong Buak Hard Park (southwest corner of Old City). Resident and passing-through teachers take turns conducting yoga classes.

  1. Chiang Mai trains for Bangkok - 2 day trains, 3 night trains, daily schedule
  2. Train 14 to Bangkok - departs 5pm daily, arrives BKK 6:15am, 1st class and 2nd class sleeping accomodation, Special Express
  3. Chiang Mai trains to other destinations -
Chiang Mai to Bangkok Trains source: railway.co.th
  1. Check Train Schedule & Fares
  2. Book Online - direct booking with State Railway of Thailand. Best to register first. If going to BKK from CNX, click "Northern Line".

    note -- big difference between booking direct with the State Railway and booking with an online 3rd party agent. 12GO was charging B1330 for the same trip that only cost me B941 with the State Railway.

    note -- Oct 2022, I took the #10 Train from CNX to BKK, upper berth, 2nd class, a/c, sleeper, B941. The train was clean, fast, comfortable and modern. If you have heavy luggage that will cost more money in flight checkin, I would suggest this train. Otherwise, the flight now is so much cheaper it doesn't even make sense to take the bus or train.

Travel Tips for Thailand

How to Get a 60-Day Thai Tourist Visa and then Extend by another 30 Days

This process is BEFORE Covid 19. Not sure what it is now.

    60-Day Thai Tourist Visa

    NOTE: There is no need to go back to your country to get the Thai tourist visa. Any major city with a Thai Embassy will do. Apparently there is also no need to have an invitation from a Thai establishment to justify the visa.

  1. Bring the following to the Thai embassy:
    a) proof of money (bank statement will suffice)
    b) flight booking to Thailand
    c) onward flight back to your country from Thailand
    d) filled-in tourist visa form
    e) 2 passport pictures
    f) hotel booking in Thailand (they didn't ask me for this but better be safe)
    g) passport with at least 6 months validity
  2. After handing over all the documents, they will ask you to come pick your passport with the visa the following day from 4 to 5pm. That's it!

General Travel Tips
  1. arrive early - in case there is a snag (visa snag, documentation snag, transport ticket snag, etc.), you will have ample time to troubleshoot the problem if you arrive early (to the airport, to the bus terminal, etc.)
  2. put detailed itinerary on the Calendar apps of your smart-phone according to timelines - this is where you do all your thinking and planning. Once written down, you don't have to think anymore while you are on the journey...you just follow the steps. This frees your mind for something else that might happen while you are already en route
  3. avoiding scams - as a general rule, I ignore the touts or anyone I don't know who call out to me. The calling comes in many forms - "Hi! Where are you from?", "Excuse me! Excuse me!", "Where are you going?". I don't look them in the eye and I remain non-verbal with them. If you reply to them, you just gave them an 'in' to hound you. In order not to look rude, I smile and wave the 'not interested' hand to them, without looking at them.
  4. power bank - hand-carry your power bank. Do not check it in. You can be called in when you are already inside the plane to go all the way to the loading dock so you can personally remove the power bank...and chances are, you'll have to surrender it to them. And you might delay the plane departure!
