I know how to spell it but it didn't occur to me. Missed that and the last question, too.

That ís the last question. I wonder which you were referring to ( if there were more question before, or perhaps intended to say least guessed question, I doubt you accidentally said last instead of first (capital), so perhaps previous question? the second to last question)

And before someone pipes in like is fashionable and says because it's not related to the tide, well, no kidding. It's descriptive that it's like a tide in a wave. The in vogue so-called correct term "tsunami" literally means "harbor wave", which is far less descriptive or accurate.

It means just tsunami in English, not harbor wave

I love Thai food so much it's probably my favorite international cuisine bar none, but pad thai is gross. It's hard to believe how that became so famous. So many better options.

Gross is a a bit strong. Maybe not as good as many other dishes.

I agree. Pad Thai - yuk. Thai food - YUM! (Also Turkish food).

Some of the first words I learned when I went to Thailand meant "not spicy." I would point to the word in my English/Thai dictionary for chicken and say "mai ped" and always got something different but deliciously tasty without heat. So hard to find that in USA where too often Thai food means heat. I loved the hospitality and patience and acceptance and generosity of the Thai.

Formerly and perhaps still my favorite country in the world. Great place. Lovely people. Lovely women. Fantastic food. Amazing beaches (well, less amazing now than they were the first time I went). Will go back again some day.

Why do you always feel the need to include things like "lovely women" in your comments about countries you've visited? They are not a tourist attraction. Unless you're engaging in the very reprehensible practice of sexual tourism, which is a disgusting issue in Thailand. (Also, you already said "lovely people". Women are people. No need to further specify.)

Why do you feel the need to respond negatively to this? I suspect some past trauma.

It's also not a brag, and I honestly wonder about the people who see it that way.

Why do you feel the need to "White Knight" into the room and start nitpicking what people post? As someone who has lived overseas for 17 years, (In Thailand for 10 of it,) I am sick and tired of people automatically swinging in to "protect" Thai women every time someone mentions them.

And believe it or not, Thai women are generally sick of it, too.

Technically, the peninsula is called the "Malay" peninsula... Indochina is the old western word for it.

Might consider accepting both.

Pretty sure the Malay peninsula is just the thin southern strip of Thailand plus mainland Malaysia
