Also Thai word for guava.
Also 'prang' in the southern Thai dialect
The generic Thai word for specifying a white person or white foreigner
Normally non offensive. Although continued use after knowledge of your name is considered rude.
The origin of the word is still debated.
1) "farang-set" (meaning French/France)
2) the bastardization of the English word "Foreign"
I understand why some Thai's hate Farang.
Farang have ruined Thailand.
