THis is a Buddist country and thus, to the utter surprise of many a first-time westerner, its a normal working/schoolday.
Sure-those big shoppingcentres will lay on all the usual OZ/US style songs and glitter. Thai like to make endless picturs of all their family and friends of the giant plastic trees and ''santa''s'' installed at convenient places in such centres. ALL better hotels aiming at westerners put on expensive US-style dinners ''with all the trmmings'' conveneniently also forgetting that many a European is also totally unfamilair with that type of food (did you know Czechs eat carp=fish then and keep it in the bathtub?
as you are labelled as masseuse, i would say: a proper massage to relieve from that jetlag.
