A hotel located in Bangkok features a room dedicated entirely to Nazi leader and mass murderer Adolf Hitler…

You don't get a mini-bar, but you do get a drawer full of tiny moustache combs (and yes, they do expect the guests to steal some…)

Do I get to blow it up?

Can you watch 'Springtime For Hitler' while drinking a one-ball martini?

Sad, people will never learn.

Hmmm

When you think you've seen everything – - -

Whatever sells of course … sadly …

And as a sidebar generally Thailand was effected very little from Hitler's reign. So they may not get "it" from their standpoint, location, etc.

Not that unusual for Thailand. My stepson had a bag that had images of Hitler with something like "Warlord Hitler" written on it. There were similar bags for sale with Stalins image and others.

No-one here has mentioned the Communist room at the same place and as Legion 4 says they had little impact on Thailand.

On the flip side I've seen people from a host of world cultures get upset at parts of their culture that we don't take seriously too.

Very true … As always many things depend on where one comes from and what beliefs they were brought up with, etc.

In Thailand, for example, be careful where you point your feet… pointing your feet at someone is discourteous or even seen as casting a curse on them.

Yes, case in point as Bill pointed out … There are a number of locales in Africa, the Mid East, rural Europe, the Far East, etc., etc., where similar actions the "outsiders"/visitors could make. I.e. a seemingly "harmless" comment, gesture or action could be misinterpreted as offensive, etc.


Even in the US South, in some places don't say anything negative about R.E. Lee ! evil grin
