ซอยไชยา   ซอย ไช ยา  ]

soi chai yaa

[ Noun ]
  • Soi Chaiya (A soi off Phuttha Monthon Sai 2 road in the Bang Khae district of Bangkok, which is also known as Soi Phuttha Monthon Sai 2 Soi 15)


  • soi (A "soi" is a side-street off a ถนน (main road). They're typically numbered in odd numbers on one side of the road and even on the other, and may also have a name in addition to a number. Some sois become so large and busy that they're practically main roads in themselves, and so can be referred to either as ซอย or ถนน. An alley or lane that is too small to be a ซอย is called a ตรอก.)

Telling the time in Thai
The Thai way of telling the time takes a little getting used to, as it's very different from English and other European languages. Thais do use the familiar 24 hour military time system to some extent, for example for official announcements, but in every day life a different and uniquely Thai system is used instead. The easiest way to approach it is to recognise that the Thai clock is divided up into roughly 4 blocks of 6 hours each rather than 2 of 12, and that each of these blocks of time is referred to in a different way.
