Bangkok - to Ayutaya by train

It can travel very easily in the Thai capital (touktouk, taxis, buses, underground ...) and out of Bangkok there are also many buses or taxis but do not forget the train ! Very cheap, it will enable you to discover the country around Bangkok.
And 80 km from the city is the site of Ayutaya I really advice you to visit it. Taking a train, spending the day will be one of the most beautiful day that you live in Thailand !

Ayutaya - former capital of the Kingdom of Siam

Ayutaya is the former capital of the kingdom just before it becomes Sukothai (where I have not yet had the chance to go but I surely will during my trip in a few months). It is a incredibly peaceful and beautiful place.
Do not only see the main temple of Wat Sri Samphet, visit also the temples and the reclining Buddha behind and above all do not miss a trip to Wat Yai Chaya Mongkol.

Thailand - Islands and beaches

Of course, Thailand is also about the dreaming beaches with hot and light blue water in the islands in South of the country....< br /> Like in Koh Samui (the only one I know for now)

Question and negation

To say "no" in thai uses the word "May" but it is also used for negation and inquiry.
The principle is pretty simple. To a question, for example, imagine that Fran ais instead of using the query form you ask your questions by saying a sentence followed by "no?". Well that is exactly like that a working language in thai. To turn a phrase in question, it is sufficient to add "May" at the end (the famous ", right?").
for negation is always the word debut in view of the sentence. "No" and your sentence.

ra suma, the structure is a matter of style: "you're hungry, right?" and the structure for a sentence is neNEGATIVE: "no, you're hungry" (you have no hunger) Grammatically, the language seems simple enough, the difficulteein tones more so but for the Right now I'm not at all developed it.

Small subtilities about thai language thai

Since few days I began to Integrated eResser the Siamese language, I just discover subtilities that challenges some of my current knowledge of thai. And yes, whether you are a man or woman, we do not say things the same way. You may say this is the case in all languages but thai appears more like French.
The first great thing to know is that sentences depending on whether the speaker is a man or a woman is not the same formula. You should punctuate every sentence kha " if you're a woman and "krap " if you're a man. I would tend to say it's a little equivalent of e" con " Marseilles who serves as the lilting phrases South but it's more of a formula politeness. Same the "I" is not the Same for a man or a woman. This is " pom " for the men and "di chan " for girls. The courses I've found were apparently especially liking feminines formulations in sentences. I will have present myself as a very feminine guy there ;)
