Thailand is well-known as the land of smile. Indeed, you can see people with smile rather than frowning. However, it does not mean that those people are not disappointed or unsatisfied.

"CHAI YEN" is more a way of life, it is to keep your temper whatever the situation.
Thai people are educated in the family and in school to keep frustration inside. Instead of showing their anger toward a problem or situation, Thai people show calm and patient.

Thai people hardly show complaining and to show one's feeling to the others is not valued in Thai society. Respect of the other is highly valued.

However, even though they do not express their feeling, it does not mean that they are not angry or having complain. So when you behave, watch out for your behavior.
