Add some heat

Thais like to add either chilli sauce, Nam Pla Prik, or a bit of chopped chilli to dishes along with some additional fish sauce for a spicier and richer taste – it’s not unusual for dishes in a Thai restaurant to come with additional chili, chopped or dried to add to taste.




Don’t point your feet

Pointing your feet at someone, raising your feet higher than someone's head, or simply putting your feet on a desk or chair is considered extremely rude in Thailand. On that same note, avoid pointing your feet at any Buddha statues as well. To follow strict Thai etiquette you should not cross your legs when sitting on the ground.




Don’t touch someone’s head

While the feet are considered the lowest and dirtiest parts of the body, the head is considered the most sacred. Never touch someone's head or hair; this includes playfully ruffling a child's hair. Avoid stepping over people who are sitting or sleeping on the ground.





The Thai smile is famous and is essential to Thailand etiquette. Thais show it whenever they can. And like the wai you should, as much as you can, return someone's smile. Smiles are used during negotiation, in an apology, to relax or whenever something goes not quite as planned! The simple act of smiling releases good chemicals in your brain.




Return a wai

The wai is Thailand's prayer-like gesture formed by placing the hands together in front and head slightly bowed. To not return a wai is considered impolite; only the king and monks do not have to return wais. Never attempt a wai while holding something.
