Malaysian Siam

Malaysian Siam

Malaysian Siam are Malaysian people with Siamese origin or ancestry. Their culture is somewhat a fusion of Malay and Thai. They speak the Thai language of Southern dialect. Most of them can be found in the northern & northeast Malaysian states of Kedah, Perlis and Kelantan. Malaysian Siams preferred to be called "Siam" instead of "Thai".


Most Malaysian Siams are Buddhist of the Theravada sect. Their place of worship is called the Wat. Each Wat has several monks administering it.


Most Malaysian Siams lead a way of life similar to the Malays. This is evident especially among the Kelantanse Siams. One could not differentiate a Malay or a Siam if they are not heard speaking their own language. The only distinctive mark among them is their religion and language. Otherwise Malaysian Siams are like Malays as they also speak fluent local Malay dialects.
