When you live abroad you need to respect local customs and cultures, it is just good manners and ensures you have a more pleasant experience. Some expats however take it to a whole new level and actually start to behave like Thais and ‘go native’.
Too me it’s odd. We are not talking about respect, this goes beyond that; we are talking about a behavioural shift from who they were into a totally different person. There are many factors a play and my vlog takes a look into the strange phenomena from when expats go native.
If you have any opinions on this, I would love to hear your views. Perhaps you are one of these individuals whom have fully embraced Thai values and cultures, it would be very interesting to understand your motives, as I could very well be missing something. Please do comment below and help explain any merits in going ‘native’.
