How much of the land did you own in your own name concerning this five “properties”? Not one inch! I am married and have been living in Thailand for more than six years. My wife owns a lot of land, and properties in Thailand. I am not allowed to bye one M² of land. I don't like your generalisation. I have never been to any bar in Thailand in the six years I have been living here, and I would never go to one either. “Land of the dreams”? I hate Thailand and all it stand for. The country is a nightmare, not a dream. But if you are interested in buying some more land you can register in your own name, that you can say you own, just contact me, my wife have a lot of land for sale.

    • Chai.the.photoguy commented : ...and it is odd isn't it, that I a westerner would say that. Please let me explain my position on this matter: Western values that we have been use to are based on the concept of total free speech - within certain parameters. When one travels to a more traditional culture and respect is something that is tied to ethnic traditions it is then that boundaries are created within respect to "free speech". Making remarks about the ///\\\ family is not tolerable. So we should accept that this is the norm. If we don't care to accept this tradition then we shouldn't be in Thailand or any other country for that matter. Follow the laws of the country or leave. Freedom of speech is a western value that is incompatible/limited with many traditional cultures around the world. Let us look a difference between Canada and the US: just an example of legal differences in respect to freedom of speech - For example in Canada it is illegal to make racist/homophobic statements in ANY media or press. In many US states it is perfectly legal to use such language.
