"Buddhist Monks" Buddhism & Monks Tip by machomikemd

Buddhism & Monks, Bangkok: 58 reviews and 64 photos

Thailand is officially a Buddhist country and some 95% of Thais are Buddhists. Always remember to remove your shoes and dress smartly when entering a temple (sleeveless shorts and short skirts are not allowed). Never allow your feet to point towards an image of the Buddha or ven stand taller than him. Monks are not allowed to have any physical contact with women and only the buddhist nuns are allowed to touch the thai women.
