DO NOT insult the King or the royal family. The King is well respected by all Thais and they will not tolerate any insults towards him. This includes anything bearing the King’s image like a stamp or a coin, so be careful.
Food & Culture
The Kingdom of Thailand was Siam up until 1939, and is still a constitutional monarchy to this day. It has never been controlled or colonized by a foreign power and so much of the indigenous culture has been well preserved.
The food is impeccable, and while you can find sit-down or even luxury dining experiences inexpensively, trying the street stalls is a must. Spicy pad thai noodles, coconut curry, fresh fish, fruit, and vegetables—as long as you don’t mind it hot (and it will be spicy) and fragrant, you’ll find something incredible to eat.
Street stalls are usually quite sanitary, but you should avoid drinking the tap water; try a refreshing iced coconut water to stay hydrated instead.
While Thai people do not so commonly speak English, those working in the tourism or service industry often do—or at least, they will be able to understand what you want to buy/order/etc. with minimal effort. Most signs are also in English, unless you venture far off the beaten track.
It’s very easy to pick up a few words and phrases. Worth expending a bit of mental energy on it as it’ll make your life easier and endear you to the locals to some extent.
With most of these greetings, it is necessary to end your sentence/phrase with khrab for men and kaa for women.
Sawat-dee – Hello/Goodbye
La-gon – Goodbye
Lao jer gun – See you again
Chok dee – Good luck
