Thailand - Culture
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Thailand has a long history with lots of culture and traditions. It is known as a country of grace and pride. Thailand's leaders have worked to make sure that the unique Thai music, dance, theater, art, and traditions will continue to be enjoyed by all its citizens.
 
2     In rural Thai villages, culture and traditions are passed on by extended families. These families are made up of several generations living in one house or in a group of houses called a compound. Children learn from their elders the codes of behavior that will guide them all their lives.
 
3     In the villages, homes are usually simple structures raised above the ground on posts. The family lives in the one-room house and animals like chickens and buffalo are kept in the space below the house. There is not much privacy, but privacy is not valued as much as social harmony, tact, and tolerance.
