   SOCIAL CUSTOMS

  1. Thais greet one another with a 'Wai'.
     
  2. Thais consider the head to be venerable and thus one should not touch anybody's head. If touching anyone's head by accident, it is wise to apologise to him/her immediately. 
  3. Thais consider the feet to be lowly and thus one should not put one’s feet on the table or the chair, or point at people or things with one's feet. 
  4. Expressing sexual feeling in public is unacceptable in the Thai culture. 
  5. Showing the image of the Thai National Flag on any package or goods without implying any sense of contempt can be done to a certain degree only
    1) by government’s agencies, and 2) for commercial purpose, with the government’s approval according to the Law regarding the National Flag. 
  6. Any form of amusement during the Songkran Festival or other traditional. Thai festivals should be held to propagate the good traditions and express goodwill and pure intention. Clean water and proper utensils should be used in the Songkran Festival, and water should not be thrown at those who do not wish to participate in the festival.
