Description: About 700 years ago, a group of Chinese left their hometown and migrated to Thailand. They successfully assimilated into Thai society and acted as a bridge between ancient China and Thailand. Today, Thailand has the highest Overseas Chinese population in the world. Many of them still follow the traditional culture of their Chinese ancestors. How do they think about their identity, their history and their future in the face of the influence of local culture and globalisation?
