According the CIA World Factbook, the population of Thailand stands at just over 67 million, making it the fourth most populous nation in Southeast Asia. Roughly 75 per cent of the population is Thai, while around 14 per cent of the population is Chinese and the remaining 11 per cent is comprised mainly of Malay and Westerners that hail from all corners of the globe.
While the majority of Thailand’s Chinese population can be found in Bangkok, there are also small Chinese communities in other parts of the country. Thailand is also home to ethnic minorities, which mostly live in northern Thailand, in the surrounds of Chiang Mai. These people hail from places such as Myanmar and live outside of society, following their own diverse traditional and cultural practices.
