    How to Tip

    by arizonabarefootgirl Updated Jul 19, 2010

    Here's a tipping tip. It's customary to tip for services in Thailand, but just a small amount is acceptable. In fact, tipping with the coins left over from the change is usually okay. For example, if you were paying for a meal with friends, and the total came to 450 baht, you give the waitress 460 baht in notes and she returns with 10 baht in change, that amount would be fine to leave as the tip.

    Always smile

    The Thais are one of the most friendly people on the planet.
    Even though you might be stressed out sometime, NEVER loose your head in public. It's like the worst thing you can do and considered as very very rude.

    As a not-Thai, especially a female, don't take looks personal. Since Khon Kaen is not a real tourist city they are not used to seeing that many not-Thai girls or women there.

    Most of the people there speak hardly any English, but if you're patient they try to understand and help you the best they can !!!

    the monks will give (sell) you a standard coffin to cremate a dead relative.
    if the family is too poor, the munks can donate a coffin....other believers in buddhism already paid for it ...see it as a gift
