A Few Don'ts

The Thais are a very friendly race, but they are sensitive to their customs as well.

Never touch a person on thir head (apart from young children) as this is a very sacred part of the body, and they will take extreme offence.

Equally, never show the soles of your feet in public, as they are seen as dirty, and it is very impolite. And in a temple never point your feet at buddha!

Thais are still quite conservative in some respects, and so older generations don't appreciate public shows of affection, and some people may be offended if you enter a shop or restaurant topless.
