And please do not tell me Thais know where these places are, as they are always stumbling around in the middle of nowhere asking me where wat so and so is or if I know of this or that place. I have seen Thais in the middle of Sakon Nakhon asking directions to Mukdahan.

Which doesn’t really help as the correct number is useless, as well.  Just because they are driving a big car does not mean they are literate. Anyhow, so you can see for yourself without wasting your time, here is a look at Your Tourist Buddy, Thailand….
