Thailand’s culture, traditions and etiquette continued

The lowest part of the body  are the feet, these must be tucked in. Unlike in the West for example, the Thai’s do not stretch out their legs and feet on say the bus.

Thai’s never use their feet to grab someone else’s attention or open a door for example.

Thai-style eating is by using a spoon to shovel rice into the mouth and not a fork. Forks are all right though for fried noodles and snacks but not rice dishes.

Foreign tourists are recommended not to eat in their hotel all the time, instead they ought and try some of the street food, a lot of it is just as good, if not even more scrumptious that the 5 star food.

When in Thailand, it is advised to keep ones alcohol consumption under control, no-one appreciates folk who are uncontrollable; otherwise they could end up spending the night locked up courtesy of the corrections department.

Thai people have a lot of respect for their religion. When foreigners enter a temple they should dress respectably; women certainly do not wear a revealing mini skirt, hot pants or strapless top.

It is perfectly all right to snap a picture of a Buddha Image but never should anyone climb up it or even touch it.

Thai’s, when seeing a monk walking towards them, step aside and let them pass. They also give up their seats on the bus for monks. Women must never touch a monk.

Thai’s, when giving a donation to a monk or temple, always put the money in an envelope and hand it over like that. It is incorrect for a monk to touch money but some still improperly  do.

Thai’s do not appreciate foreigners who come here and walk around bare-chested, including going topless on the beach, in fact it is actually illegal and a fine could be charged

Shorts are all right in Thailand but they  ought to look nice and tidy, make sure they look nice.

Thai women are conservative and self-conscious about their looks; foreign women should wear a brassiere always.

Besides Buddhism, the Thai’s also have a lot of respect for the royal family. It is socially  taboo for anyone to say anything negative about any of the royals; otherwise there could be some serious trouble.

Tipping Caddies

A  tip equal to the caddy  fee, usually  about 200 Baht, is expected.
