Songkran Festival

ART
Thai craftsmen were acknowledged as the “true artists” since the old age up till the early modern age in Thailand. There were “chang sip mu” which translates into “ten division of craftsmen” which is the name of the government department consisting of “Chaang feemeu” which roughly translates to “craftsman”. These ten divisions shows the variety of crafts in Thailand during The Great King Rama V’s reign (1285 - 1910.Some of the ten divisions are drawing, engraving and sculpting.
Thai drama is incorporated into the dances such as Khon where it is the main act of drama.
Thai dances are comprised of three main categories. Khon, which is the most conventionalized form. Lakho which is less formal than the former, and Fawn Thai which is a type of “folk- dance” Another dance called the Mohra dance is typically only performed in the South. Like most cultural dances, all the Thai dances tell an elaborate story which is incorporated in the dance moves as well as the outfits worn.

PRODUCTS
Culture plays a big role in what products are being exported and imported such as food products, clothing and others. Most companies seeking to trade with Thailand have to first develop cultural awareness and whether the product is suitable for the people of Thailand without interfering with their faith or culture such as alcohol which is a sin to consume for both Buddhists and Muslims.
Just like products, companies interested in importing their services into Thailand must take into account if the people require these services and if it is in demand, for example - chefs, dancers or massage therapists. Companies must also take into account of the language barrier and must equip their staff with the proper knowledge of the language and customs practiced.

During the time Rama II was in ruling was traditional music popular with the people of Thailand. This could be because Rama II
greatly enjoyed listening as well as playing music, in which he was very talented in
playing various Thai musical instruments.
He also encouraged his people to follow suit.
