Have you ever heard" wâay"? 😀 Let's talk about "wâay".

wâay is a gesture of Thai culture. There are three types of wâay.


1. A wâay gesture with the tips of the thumbs placing between eyebrows while bowing, performed to show respect to Buddhist monks.





2. A wâay gesture with the tips of the thumbs placing at the nose tip while bowing, performed to the senior people including parents and teachers.




3.A wâay gesture with the tips of the thumbs placing at the chin while bowing, performed to show respect to people of similar ages.


Thai language and Thai culture are very interesting. I invited you to learn Thai language.If you have plan to travel in Thai or do business in Thai, it is necessary for you to understand Thai language. Beside you learn Thai language ,you also can understand Thai culture.
