Thai Population & Foreigner

Many people said the traditional Thai has dark skin and sharp complex. Malay, Myanmar and Cambodia are look very similar too. It is hard to say who is original Thai and indicated their ancestor. The look of physical appearance such as skin color, eye color or body may help to identify that person for where they from.  However, Thailand is similar to country. The longer country is developed, the more diversify of population is.  There are many foreigner come and integrate with the local. Now a day, we are more open and welcome than the pass.
