Its culture does not have a heavy influence of the west and it prides itself as one of the truly Asian cultures in this aspect. Thailand is a newly industrialized country.  It is dubbed as the new tiger cub of Asia.  Its economy is heavily export -dependent, with exports accounting for more than two-thirds of its gross domestic product (GDP).  The industrial and service sectors are the main sectors in the Thai gross domestic product.  According to the Wikipedia, the nation is recognized by the World Bank as “one of the great development success stories” in social and development indicators.  The official Thai language is widely spoken throughout the country but living in Thailand would not be a problem for it is great that many Thais also speak and understand English, though more so in Bangkok and the major tourist areas.  Thai people are very hospitable and they even help foreigners learn a few words to help them get around.  English is typically the common language for cross-cultural conversation as Thailand hosts a lot of visitors and expats from around the world which makes migrating to Thailand easy.  There is no official state religion in the Thai constitution, which guarantees religious freedom for all.  Majority of Thais though are Buddhist.  The Thailand Baht is the official currency of the country.
