I live in Thailand and this is the best representation of typical day to day life in Thailand that I have seen in movies or TV. This is probably true because it is obviously filmed in Thailand, and shows glimpses outside the urban tourist areas. I have not encountered very many Thais with such good English skills as those depicted, but overall it is very accurate. I like that it shows the Thais in both good and bad lights. There are many women in Thailand like Narn that are out to fleece the foreigner for all they can, particularly in Phuket. But there are a lot more like Oh and Dit's family that are poor, hardworking and moral people. They even managed to capture some of the elitist arrogance of the police and government workers that is common in Thailand.
What impresses me the most and to a minor degree detracts from the show for me is the depiction of the main character Swedes. To me it paints the Swedes in a very poor light. They are rude and arrogant towards the Thais, but most significant is that all of the main Swedish characters seem to be either completely clueless or batshit crazy. I repeatedly find myself chastising the characters for their stupidity and shaking my head in disbelief that anyone could be such idiots. I certainly hope that they are not representative of the typical Swede.
