Don’t be fooled by the skyscrapers, the roads clogged with the latest luxury cars or the high-tech gadgetry in pockets and purses. This country of 65 million people has embraced modernity, yes, but many Thais will tell you that ghosts and spirits still wander the streets and inhabit buildings.

If you’ve ever longed for a monkey to jam its rubbery little finger in your ear, there is a town for you called Lop Buri, Thailand.

They are a menace: yanking down ladies’ skirts, scrambling up tourists’ necks and eating anything that can fit in their furry faces.
Several celebrities have changed their names in the interest of more auspicious results or just to sound more stylish. Actress Rungthong ruamthong became Darat Thitakawin, newscaster Ornpreeya Hunsart is now Punyawee Sukkakulworraset, and TV host Ekachai Buranaphanit goes by Tankun Jitissara.

A lady-boy who spent her life shuttling back and forth between Thailand and Switzerland, opening a restaurant and becoming rich in the process, is to marry two of her Thai boyfriends later this month and is hoping they can all live happily together in a ménage a trois. This, perhaps, will set a precedent that others will wish to follow.
