Thailand is a Buddhist country with traditional etiquettes; we greet one another with the wai – a sign of respect and reverence. It is usually offered by pressing hands together accompanied by the words ‘sawatdi khrap’ for males and ‘sawatdi kha’ for females. Elders are highly respected in Thai culture. Thai cultural taboos include touching someone’s head (which is considered the most sacred part of the body), or pointing with your feet towards them.
