We spent almost 3 weeks in Thailand and visited 4 areas: Bangkok, Kata Beach on Phuket, Railay Beach in Krabi, and Koh Tao. For more detail on each location as well as getting vaccines in Thailand, see the links to each separate blog post at the bottom of this overview blog post. Also, be sure to see the pictures from Thailand here.
Overall, I found Thai people to be very pleasant. At the markets, there weren't very many really pushy people trying to get you to buy their stuff. Of course you encountered a few, but it wasn't the norm. In Bangkok, every time you passed a massage place, they asked you if you wanted a massage, but if you said no, they were accepting of the answer. On Koh Tao, there were several taxi drivers standing around asking you if you wanted a taxi, but again, if you said no, they went on to the next person.
A few things about Thailand in general:
