Lesson Transcript

Hi, everybody! I’m Jay from ThaiPod101.com Do you know what monsters Thai people are scared of? In this lesson, you’ll learn about 3 scary monsters in Thailand. Let's start with the most popular monster.
1. กระสือ (grà-sǔue)
The กระสือ (grà-sǔue) is a female ghost that only has a head and intestines. During the day, she's a beautiful young woman. At night, she turns into a horrific ghost. She eats animals raw and drinks their blood. She also eats newborn human babies. That sounds pretty scary, right?
You might have heard about the next monster. The next one is…
2. ผีกองกอย (phǐi gaawng gaauy)
The ผีกองกอย (phǐi gaawng gaauy) is a one-legged, blood-sucking jungle ghost. This ugly ghost move around on one leg, shouting ‘Koi! Koi! Koi!’. They try to suck blood from the toes of people walking through the jungle at night. They cannot climb trees.
Okay, here's the last monster…
3. ผีผีสองนาง (phǐi sǎawng nang)
Have you heard of this next one? This is the vampire ghost. These vampire ghosts suck the blood of men. They appear as beautiful women to traveling men. They invite the men to a secluded place and then attack them to drink their blood.
Let's wrap up this lesson by recapping what we have learned. Listen to the names of each monster and repeat after me.

Well done! Did you know that Thailand has a similar holiday to Halloween? The locals in Thailand don't celebrate Halloween, but visitors and travelers often throw a big Halloween party. The Sat Thai festival is somewhat similar to Halloween when families visit temples with gifts for the spirits of the dead. It takes place on the 9th day of the waxing of the 10th lunar month of the Thai calendar.
That's it! You just learned about 3 of the scariest monsters in Thailand and about Sat Thai, a festival similar to Halloween.
