PROGRAMDo and Don't in Thailand

Do and Don't In Thailand

1. Thailand is a Buddhist country where Buddha images are held sacred. Sacrilegious acts are punishable by imprisonment even if committed by foreign visitors.

2. Thai People hold their King and Queen an Royal Family in great reverence, and so won't tolerate foreigners showing disrespect to them.

3. Generally Thai women are conservative. So don't touch them without their consent.

4. Dress properly when entering a Buddhist temple. Miniskirt and short are not allowed. Take your shoes off before going inside the hall of worship. Ladies must not on any account touch a Buddhist monk, give things direct to him or receive thing from him.

5. Intimacies between man and woman should not be shown in public and Buddhist temple.

6. Traditionally, Thais greet each other with a wai (by pressing the palms together at the chest). If someone wais you, you should wai back (except wai-ed by a child).

7. Call Thais their first names; use the title "Khun" for adults.

8. Thai people smile to express gladness and happiness, to thank for small service, to return the wai (a way of greeting) of children and inferior person, and even to excuse small inconveniences.

9. Don't touch person's head, nor ruffle his hair. The head is the noblest part of the body. A sincere apology should be offered immediately if touch someone's head unintentionally.

10. Avoid placing your feet on the table while sitting. Never use your foot to point things out or to touch any part of the body of anyone. Which considered rude.

11. Entering a Thai house, you're expected to remove your shoes
