Thai people are thought to be very helpful and gentle. However, many tourists who come to Thailand d not understand some thai customs and beliefs.

First of all, we believe that the head is the most sacred part of the body because the head is situated of the spirit of that person. Thus, it is not proper to point the toe on the head.

Then, we give a lot of respects to the olders. Conseqently, every time we speak with the olders, we should talk more gently and properly than usual. Also, we should bend our back when walking across them.

Finally, we give a lot of respects to the king and the royal family. It is inproper to talk about them in the bad sides. We believe that the king is the reincarnation of one of the Hindu gods, Vishnu. So, he is the highest person in the society.
