    • The tallest Thai female is Malee Duangdee (born December 22, 1991). Her height is at a staggering 208cm, as measured at the Chulalongkorn Hospital, Bangkok, Thailand, on 16 January 2009.

      Malee Duangdee is the tallest woman in Thailand.  Standing at 208cm, she is not the tallest Asian or woman by far.  Yao Defen from China has the honor as the world’s tallest woman.

      20-year-old Malee is so tall because of a tumor in her pituitary gland, a condition which could be fatal.  She endured 2 unsuccessful operations to remove the tumor but to no avail.  Her only hope is a tumor-shrinking drug which her father, a poorly paid labourer, cannot afford.

      Her imposing height has been a source of despair for her, especially among her peers. “When she walks down the street, many people call her a giant and laugh at her,” laments her father.  “So many times I ask myself why?” admits Malle. “I sit in front of the mirror and cry. Why am I not the same as other people?”

      She is anxious to hold a Guinness World Record, as the fame may bring the money her family needs for her treatment.
