Q: What can I expect as far as cleanliness?

A: Everything about the Thai people revolves around cleanliness. It’s part of their Buddhist religion. For example, it is against their religion to serve food to someone that could cause sickness, therefore even if you were to eat at the sidewalk vendors, the food and water served there would be fit for Americans to eat. Another example is, if you choose to engage in sexual activity, your partner would insist on you showering before and afterward just as they would. In short, the Thai’s are extremely meticulous when it comes to being clean.
