Despite the influences brought about by globalization has brought about the Thai are still very much in tune with their roots and traditions, which is perhaps why they are still known as the Land of Smiles for the people’s strong sense of hospitality and generosity. Aside from hospitality and generosity the Thai place great value in respect – respect towards their ancestors and their elder. And though it might be seem peculiar to some the Thai also has great respect for books and other documents. In fact books are considered to be the most revered secular objects in Thailand.
