In Thailand there is a concept known as “Thainess”, and while it is often debated what this is, it generally refers to the various characteristics that define the Thai people and their customs, mannerisms and the rich culture.

If you are visiting Thailand it is important to try and understand the local culture. Not only will it help you understand more about the local way of life, it will help you avoid making culturally insensitive actions.
