Prepared your Thai Language

(4 votes, average 4.75 out of 5)

Prepare your Thai Language before visit Thailand.

learn-thaiLearning some Thai language before you visit Thailand is recommended because it will give you more freedom and independence. Knowledge of spoken Thai will not guarantee that you get the best prices in the market, but it doesn't hurt to know how to ask. Most importantly you will be able to appreciate the Thai people more, and they will certainly appreciate you.
