行者无路, 你好, 我有到过西双版纳 的景洪,当地傣族的文化宗教,和泰人大同小异。 据说,泰国人的祖先,是在中国的南,北朝,时代南迁。 西双版纳 (Sip song phan na),泰语的意思是 一万两千(12000)片稻田,泰北 清邁 的古名是,“兰纳” (Lanna),意思是 百万(1000000)片稻田。


木子, 问候

木子兄 : 您说的没错 !

西双版纳在傣语中是12个坝子的意思 , 坝子在云南就是平地(基本都可以种水稻) 。 我在西双版纳有和傣族朋友聊天 , 他们告诉我 , 泰国北部地区民众的服饰 、 生活习俗 、 宗教信仰 、语言 、 民族节日 、 建筑等与版纳的傣族非常相似和相近 。 我也亲眼看到当傣族民歌的音乐响起时 , 泰国的游客会一起跟唱和起舞 。 真的印证了您的说法 !!!!

问候 ,行者无路
