To Home, With Love 番畔有批到家來 - 南洋發批地 

Since the late Ming dynasty, the Teochew people have migrated overseas in large numbers to escape war, social unrest and poverty. More than ten million Teochews, almost as many as the current population in the Teochew region, now live outside China in over 40 countries and territories.Most of the overseas Teochews reside in Southeast Asia and Hong Kong. Thailand in particular has a large and influential Teochew community. It is from these countries that the Teochew Letters originate.

 

明朝後期以來,為了逃避戰爭動亂和貧窮的生活困境,大批潮人移民到海外。如今旅居海外的潮州人遍佈世界40多個國家和地區,人口超過千萬,幾乎是現在整個潮州地區的總人數。他們大部分生活在東南亞國家和香港地區,因此僑批也主要來源於這些地方。其中在泰國的潮人社群人數和社會影響力最大。
