    Hey, I found this blog while looking for the differences between these 2 countries.
    I taught English in Thailand for 3 years but have never been to Mexico. I am thinking of doing a jaunt in ESL there for a bit.
    Do you know anything about the day to day lives of expats there compared to Thailand (job prospects, salaries, living standards). I also heard that Mexico is quite dangerous. Thailand is pretty safe but westerners do regularly get stared at, harassed and scammed (especially in touristy areas). Will this happen to me in Mexico too? I am caucasian but of darker (southern European) complexion and I know some basic Spanish to get around after previous travels in Spain.
    Sorry about the dumb questions but Mexico is a country I’m very intrigued by!
    Thanks!

      Jay, thanks for your comment. You so should go to Mexico, it’s my country number 1 🙂 I don’t know much about jobs for expats in Mexico but it’s not so cheap than Thailand. Some places more than others. I wouldn’t worry about any danger, just use your common sense where not to go and what not to do. Most of the destinations are safe, except the North and some parts of Mexico City. Personally, I only saw 1 person getting robbed in Puebla, and also my laptop was stolen from a friend’s house together with his things, but nothing else. Still love Mexico to the bits.

    Great article! As a Mexican who’s lived the American life for over a decade now, I absolutely agree with your views of Mexico from a western perspective. You’re the only article on the web that truly compares Mexico “vs” Thailand. Thank you for the info as I’m looking to travel for a year to Thailand soon.

    Thank you for your comparison. It was entertaining to read. But I really wonder for how long you stayed in the two countries. I might not consider myself as an expert, but having lived 1

    year in Thailand and 2 in Mexico, I would say that I did get some impressions apart from the tourist stuff. And these impressions partly don’t match at all with yours… How long did you

    stay in these countries and where did you go?

    “Small grocery stalls – no fruit or vegetable”:
    I’ve never been to a country where fruit stalls are as abundant as in Thailand… In Mexico, the vendors who sell jicama and cucumber with chamoy are also pretty common.

    “Vegetables – Are you a vegetarian? Bad luck then!”:
    I’ve never been to a country where EVERYBODY understands the concept of vegetarianism and veganism as properly as in Thailand (I’m vegetarian). Not too surprising considered the large

    number of (supposedly) vegan monks over there, and therefore extremely convenient – just everything will be veganized for you, as soon as you ask. And you know Som Tam and all the other

    “Yam” (salad) dishes?! I mean, that’s pure veggies (as long as you leave out the fish sauce). And they even have a vegetarian festival for one week all over the country.

    “People – the Mexicans smile at you all the time, The Thais look a bit more arrogant, you don’t really get a smile that often. Thai people living on the islands are nicer and smile more”:
    Actually, to me Thais seemed to smile a LOT more than Mexicans. It’s just not part of the Mexican macho culture to show such a “fragile” emotion. Moreover, even among Thais there’s

    consensus that the natives living on the islands are less “friendly” and more aggressive than the people living more in the northern parts… Even many Thais coming from the islands told

    me this. So, it’s interesting that your opinion was vice versa. Regarding Bangkok, I think you shouldn’t expect people from ANY big city in the world to be too interested in anybody else.

    But still – as soon as you leave the very centre of BKK (that is, leaving the area served by the BTS), you can get in touch with really nice and interested folks.

    “Looks – Thai people are very skinny, Mexicans are a bit obese”:
    Considered that we are talking about Mexico, the fattest country in the world, this comment is probably “a bit” understated. On the other hand – there are a lot of VERY big Thais as well,

    especially in the cities, where sugar loaded stuff is available 24/7 (or more precisely “7 Eleven”).

    “Restaurants – But in Thailand, usually only in the huge shopping malls you can find some foreign food, but nothing really like for example pizza.”:
    Once again, I think your time in Thailand was much too short. The whole area starting at Asok in BKK is “owned” by Japanese – even the street signs are written in Japanese. And guess what:

    There’s almost only “foreign” food. And of course you can get a LOT of pizza in Thailand as well. By the way: Most pizzas you get in Mexico are either American, Argentinian, or even

    “Mexican” – so from countries very close to Mexico. To make a fair comparison you should try to find Thai, Vietnamese, or Japanese food in Mexico. Thai? Somewhat difficult. Japanese? Not

    authentic at all. Vietnamese? Non existent. But what is more: Outside of the tourist areas it can be VERY difficult in both countries to find anything else apart from the local cuisine. I

    suppose you stayed mainly in the tourist regions…

    “Bus trips – come to your final destination on time, too.”:
    Erm… no comment… Please let me know the company – up to now I have used the wrong one…

    All in all, I really liked your post and I don’t want to say that you are wrong, but I think if you had lived for more time in these countries (once again, perhaps you have, I just don’t

    know) with more contact to the locals (and speaking the local language, which might be a bit of a challenge in Thailand) your comparison would have been a bit different.

    Best regards,
    Fabian

      Thanks for your super long comment Fabian, I wish I had an hour to reply to it but I really don’t. Obviously, I wrote about my experience, not saying that yours cannot be different. Just a few points – after visiting 19 states out of 32 in Mexico I’ve never seen any nation smiling so much like them, probably maybe the Costa Ricans. Thai are far behind in this. 2 years after visiting Mexico I am still in touch with at least 30 people, but never talked to any Thai person ever since. Plus, I lost a lot of weight in Thailand just because it was impossible to ask for a vegetarian/vegan meal – I’m as much vegan as possible, now even raw vegan – or they seemed not to understand, or everything was super spicy and I just could not eat it. I agree there are not many foreign restaurants in Mexico but I never needed one, I don’t like Asian food but love Mexican food. Visiting many places vs. living in one place is completely different and you should not compare it in my point of view, as when you live somewhere, you find where to go, what to do and you meet the same people there, and they can even make you different dishes; which does not happen if you are a tourist there 😉 Been to Mexico twice – altogether 4 months around, and to Thailand 3 times – maybe 6 weeks or so.

      I loved the article too but totally agree with a lot of your points about Thailand – I’ve never been to Mexico (will be going there for about 6 months in less than a year) but have lived in Pai, Northern Thailand, for now a total of about 16 months apart from various visa runs and short trips, and I’m in love with the place x

    Interesting post! I would never have paired Thailand and Mexico up but now that you have I can see they kinda go together in a funny sort of way. I have been to Thailand but not Mexico – yet!

    Hey Sexy!

    I would never have thought that Thailand would be described as being similar to Mexico…Living here in London we only get reports of how dangerous it is…Maybe I will add it to my places to visit list for 2013 🙂

    Where do you recommend is a good place to go in Mexico?

    I know, people say Mexico is dangerous and I do believe there are places where it is, but the normal Mexicans are so nice to the tourists! I know from my personal experience, spent 3 months there 🙂
