The magazine "My Planet" has created a unique project "Foreigners about Russia and Russians". The main goal of the project is to find out what people from different countries think about our country and its inhabitants. In this collection, we decided to tell about the reaction of the residents of Thailand, who were asked to name three associations associated with Russia. See what came of it:

1. - A country that I will never get to - far, expensive, and there is no need. Snow is everywhere. Serious people. - Have you ever seen snow? - Yes, in Switzerland. I took a lot of pictures then and fell twice. It turns out that snow needs special boots with spikes. (Tyung, 53, nurse, Mae Hong Son)
