It might be a surprise to find out that people on Ko Lanta Island actually have high moral principles, even though Thailand is famous for its parties and positive attitude to transsexuals. There are no nude beaches on the island, so if you’ll try to sunbathe naked or topless, then stricken people will call the police and you’ll be fined. The locals are known for their intolerance to public nuisance so they won’t take into consideration the possibility that tourist might not know something. It’s an ordinary thing here to express one’s indignation by a look, words or gestures. It’s quite peculiar that the locals even swim in their everyday clothes. Actually, they even wear no shorts or T-shirts at all. So if you see someone in revealing clothes then it’s definitely a tourist. The islanders wear long-sleeve shirts, trousers or skirts of below knee length. The locals are completely non-punctual. They never come in time, but they always wear only perfectly matched clean clothes. Nobody on the island would come to work, shops or a beach in the same clothes. The locals strongly believe that there are each clothes for each case. Besides, it’s not accepted here to demonstrate one’s feelings to a girlfriend/boyfriend in public places. So, if you don’t want other people to stare at you, then it’s better to leave all those kisses and hugs untill there are only you and your partner.

As you speak to a child, add prefix «Non-», and as to an adult – prefix «Pi». Most of the locals who live in cities speak English pretty well unlike those who live in villages (so if you’d like to communicate with them you’ll have to you gestures or to learn Thai). Remember that people who live on Ko Lanta Island never refuse directly, so you’ll never get the answer «no» to your request. Instead, you’ll hear a bunch of compliments, beautiful words but no particular answer except for «let’s see tomorrow». That «tomorrow» will be endless and eventually, they’ll just ignore you.
