๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ Thai Language Essentials for Travelers


Recommended Posts

While traveling to a foreign land it is important to learn a few words about their language, not only does it show respect but also opens doors to delightful interactions with locals.ย Don't let language barriers hold you back! Learning a few Thai words can be a game-changer for your trip. Here are some basics I picked up during my Thailand trip:

1. Greetings Matter:

Hello: Sa-wa-dee-krup (for men) / Sa-wa-dee-ka (for women)
How are you?: Sa-bye-dee-mhai-krup (M) / Sa-bye-dee-mhai-ka (F)
Reply to How are you?: Sa-bye-dee-krup (M) / Sa-bye-dee-ka (F)

2. Farewells and Affirmations:

See you Later: Jer-gun
Yes: Chai
No: Mai

3. Courtesies and Gratitude:

Thank you: Khorb-koon-krup (M) / Khorb-koon-ka (F)
Reply to Thank you (My pleasure): Yin-dee-khrup (M) / Yin-dee-ka (F)
Sorry: Khore-tode-krup (M) / Khore-tode-ka (F)

These are a few important words that helped me survive in Thailand. Do you know any more? Let's continue this conversation! Share your essential phrases in the comments below.ย
