Si, get her over to Jino's Thai Cafe in Headingley. Loads of Thai staff to talk to there. I've heard they're also planning a monthly karaoke/buffet night for Thais only in the near future! Their website - www.jinosthaicafe.co.uk (http://www.jinosthaicafe.co.uk)

Si
I hope there are nearby members of this site near to you and you can meet up.
Just do not push too much and too early, your missus will find her feet in time and establish her own network.
Sadly I have seen major problems when the local "Thai" mafia pounce on a newbie and turn her from an angel to a harpie. Just because they are from the same country don't assume they are friends.
There are lots of good ones though and let her have time to make up her own mind.

i agree let her get her feet under the table first enjoy the time together. :angel:
when kanchana first came to the uk apart from visiting her family about once a month she was not interested in meeting/finding new friends for about 15 months.even now she she is happy to be at home (a non drinker... dislike card games) :argue:

Si, as you probably already know, the Thai community in (Leeds, especially Headingley) is a healthy mix of wives, contract workers, & Thai students, all from very different backgrounds & different areas of Thailand. The great thing is, they all get on really well together. Admittedly most social interaction does seem to revolve around the local restaurants, but this often leads to events, friendships etc. elsewhere.
OK so there are some Thais who like to 'live life to the full' but that's up to them! You're lady will have no problem working out who to hang out with & who to give a wide berth.
Thais are very sociable people by nature, even if it's just a chinwag & a meal with friends every now & again. In my opinion, you're doing the right thing trying to get her involved with the other Thais. Good luck.
