"For female travellers, never,..." Thailand Local Custom Tip by Svitata

Thailand Local Customs: 307 reviews and 224 photos


For female travellers, never, never touch a Buddhist monk in Thailand. It's a big no-no. Even the Thai women are not allowed to do so. Females must also be appropriately dressed when entering a temple, shoulders should be covered and no shorts allowed.
