"The Thai people are very..." Thailand Local Custom Tip by meister21

Thailand Local Customs: 307 reviews and 224 photos

The Thai people are very graceful and wonderful. They are the friendliest group of people I have ever met. Upon meeting someone new or an aquaintance, they wai (put your hands together in front of you) you. Being wai-ed is a sign of respect and you should wai back.
