Do's and DONT's how to greet

When Thais greet they press the palms of their hands in together, like a prayer-like gesture called a ”wai”. The tip of the fingers touch the nose. The younger person should wai an older person, who will then return it.
Unlike in europe where you shake hand and look the other person in the eyes, it is considered rude to look into peoples eyes. Not only when you are greeting someone….
Its is frowned upon to kiss or even hold hands in public. How ever this is changing and I see more and more thais holding hands. But kissing in public… that’s still very much a taboo.
Usually its to hot to hug anyway lol
