Thai word for white people or Westerners, generically referring to non-asians. Generally used without derogatory connotation, derived from the Thai word "farangsayt" for French.

Also Thai word for guava.

Farang or Falang
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 hate Phuket, there are too many Farang.

I understand why some Thai's hate Farang.

Farang have ruined Thailand.

Farang is what people in Thailand call westerners as a sign of how much they hate them. Like the Chinese blaming everything from the Opium War in 1840 on gweilos, the Thais blame all of the problems in their country on farangs. While taking their money and marrying off their poor and unwanted divorces to stupid faring, they laugh at them behind their back and discriminate against them in every way such as through "two-thirds pricing". Farangs are always associated with the Patpong hooker district of Bangkok and marry bar girls.
Thai sez to farang: You foreigner, you pay double price!!

1. Thai way of calling White people regardless of where they are from. Origin of this word is still debated but one of them is when Thai and French people first met and Thai people miss took the word "français" to Farangset. Later on, farang is a common word to call white people.
2. Guava
