Thailand is an Asian country that is not very well off, and the tourism industry is a major part of the country’s income. This is both a good thing and a bad thing. On one hand, you will have male tourists going in and disrespecting the locals. In addition, many of the women will go for foreigners as they have the money. Prices are jacked up, and tourism has really caused certain areas to be more morally depraved.
Muay Thai originates from thailand, and it is one of the most deadly and efficient martial arts in the world. It is not uncommon to run into males trained in the art, so any altercations can be especially dangerous.
