Thai Customs

Greeting
Wai is the politest way of greeting, thanking or saying goodbye in Thailand. To do a Wai, press your palms together at chest level and bow your head slightly.

Head & Feet
Based on Thai beliefs, the head is the most valued part of the body, while the feet are the least. Touching someone’s head is highly impolite, and be aware that pointing or pushing things around with your feet is extremely rude in Thailand.

Forms of Address
Even though it is still polite to address to people using their names and surnames in international contexts, you might hear some different forms of address while you are in Thailand. In Thai, there are three respectful forms of address: P’, Nong and Khun.

  • P’ is used when the person to whom we address is older than us.
  • Nong is used when the person is younger.
  • Khun is a neutral, but respectful form of address.

What to Wear in Temples
Most temples in Thailand have signs telling visitors how to dress appropriately in religious places – shoulders and knees should be covered. In case your attire is not proper, you may find local stalls selling scarves and pants to visitors.
