台灣泰國大不同 12張圖讓你稍微搞懂兩國差異

4  

圖文By Etty (Rice Potato)

十幾年前我到紐約遊學,遇到來自世界各地的朋友問到我從哪裡來的時,大家常以為台灣就是泰國,把兩個國家混為一談。十年後的現在,時不時當我介紹自己從台灣來的時候,還是會有人問我:「那你說泰文嗎?」通常要花很長一段時間解釋。

台灣和泰國是兩個完全不一樣的國家:不一樣的文化、不一樣的語言、不一樣的歷史、不一樣的飲食習慣…..。我希望在這邊透過這幾幅小插畫可以讓人稍微了解我所來自的台灣和我目前居住的泰國,兩者之間的差異(當然在這邊只是列舉幾項囉!畢竟這就是兩個完全不同的國家啊!如果要說真正的差別可是花個三天兩夜也說不完的)。

When travelling New York ten years ago, I met a lot of people from around the world. Many would ask me where I was from, Taiwan. Sadly, people think that Taiwan is Thailand.

These are two different countries: different cultures, different languages, different history, etc. I hope through these illustrations people will learn a little bit about where I am from (Taiwan) and where I live now(Thailand).

1.計程車摩托車 motorcycle taxi
來到泰國可以看到騎士穿著各式顏色印有編號背心,載著乘客穿梭在街道小巷內。泰國的天氣炎熱、交通擁擠,讓人從大街走到小巷真的會讓人汗流浹背,坐計程車又卡路上,計程車摩托車成為便利的選項。

1.摩托車 motorcycle
泰國也是可以看得到一般人騎乘摩托車,但沒有台灣來的多。私人摩托車是在台灣各區最便利的交通工具之一。相較汽車,在台灣摩托車騎士更容易找到停車位。在台灣,不論騎士或乘客都一定要戴安全帽,不然是會被罰錢的。
