Thailand - Thai Culture
- Some Don'ts for Men and Women

Don't touch a persons head or ruffle their hair - The head is classed as the 'noblest' part of the body. A sincere apology should be offered if you touch someone's head - even if by accident.

Don't put your feet on a table as a foot rest while sitting - showing the sole of your feet or shoes is considered to be very rude manners.

Don't use your foot to point out anything and never touch anyone with your foot - this is considered as an affront. If you accidentally stand on someone's foot then apologise quickly.

Don't touch a woman without her consent - Thai women are generally conservative in their manner.

Don't carry out any intimacies between you and your partner in public - Kissing and cuddling are frowned upon in public.

Don't sunbathe in the nude at any time where you may be observed - even in private if you can be overlooked - It is against the law.

Don't enter someone's house with your shoes on - You are expected to remove your footwear - This is Thai tradition and shows respect for the household.

In addition - If you're a woman:
