  • An introduction to Thai Etiquette - By Koh-Samui-Hotels.co.uk
    we may accidentally make Best advice is to be polite and not worry too much about local social customs However if you would like to know a little more about Thai etiquette and manners then read on When two Thai folks meet for the first time within seconds they will have both established who is higher in social standing This simple thing is the core foundation of Thai manners In Thailand one person will often attach a prefix to another personâ s name when addressing them and this prefix is defined by who has the higher in social standing For example two young men meet for the first time they will judge each other and one will decide that the other is more senior If the more senior person is named John then he becomes Pi John where Pi means older brother thatâ s the closest translation into English it is more subtle than this and the other will have the prefix Nong meaning younger brother again loosely This simple judging of social standing forms the backbone of Thai manners Loss of Face Lots of things go towards attributing weight towards ones social standing within Thai society it is not as simple as age affluence and wealth It is entirely possible for a rich and affluent person to end up much further down the social ladder than they should be simply due to losing face This is quite a complex subject the closest comparison to western culture would be that loss of face is equal to embarrassment Probably the easiest thing to do is a give an example Imagine those same two young men again and now imagine they are sharing an evening drinking Thai Whiskey together Sometime during the evening Pi John the more senior gets drunk and starts to insult the other This will always result in a loss of face for Pi John as he has taken advantage of somebody lower down the social scale If he makes this a regular thing and people come to learn of it he will eventually lose so much face he will lose social standing When to Wai Thai people Wai all the time A wai is the pressing together of hands in front of the face as if praying and bowing slightly Who gives who a wai is entirely based upon social standing more junior people will always wai more senior Often the senior person will wai back but the junior person is expected to initiate this small ritual As a westerner if you want to make sure you do not make any mistakes then do not wai anybody Westerners are not really expected to wai unless you happen to be a Buddhist as the wai is intended to please Buddha not the recipient Who Pays One of the most often heard gripes from long term expat residents of Thailand is that they always end up paying when in a restaurant or bar when accompanied by Thai guests This complaint

  • Koh Samui by Train - By Koh-Samui-Hotels.co.uk
    way to reach Koh Samui there is another more interesting option one which many travelers find enjoyable Every day there are several trains which leave Hua Lamphong station in Bangkok and make the long run south the city of Surat Thani Train travel in Thailand is slow going and this 800km journey takes some 12 hours a grueling journey sitting in a vinyl seat However there is a further option Each evening a single sleeper train leaves Bangkok and makes the same journey overnight Although there are three classes of sleeper berths on this train we are going to speak about first class in this short article First class train travel in Thailand is inexpensive Booking a private first class sleeper cabin from Hua Lamphong station to Surat Thani station for two people costs around 3 000 Baht 90 dollars or 60 UK pounds For this price you get a private cabin with two beds a sink unit and all night room service bringing food and drinks including alcohol The first class bathroom facilities are far better than second class and have a Western style toilet and a shower We can see that the accommodation is quite comfortable and the cost is negligible but why would anyone want to spend a night upon a train when they can fly for a little extra money The answer is simple the journey to Koh Samui itself is fascinating Not the sleeping part but what comes after In the morning you will be woken by a train porter who will convert your beds into a comfortable seat You may then order breakfast and spend the next two hours watching the jungle slide past the window as you cross the last part of Southern Thailand from Chumpon down to Surat Thani some truly delightful scenery When you disembark from the train at Surat Thani station the next part of your journey to Koh Samui begins Surat Thani train station Once you exit Surat Thani train station you need to head to the sea port at Donsak where you will catch the ferry across to Koh Samui There are two options for this part of the journey Just outside the station you will find one or more coaches waiting for the train so that they can pick up passengers heading to the ferry port at Donsak These coach operators sell a combined ticket which includes both the coach and the ferry Although this is the cheapest option it is quite a long journey by coach as they tend to take a roundabout route picking up other passengers Possibly the best option is to take a taxi this is quite inexpensive and is much more comfortable as well as a lot quicker There are two main ferry operators the first is Seatran and this is a passenger only ferry The second is Raja and this is a combined passenger and vehicle ferry Most people seem to prefer Raja probably because the ferry is larger with plenty
