Things you must avoid in Thailand

Whenever visiting a country, respecting its culture and heritage is the foremost responsibility. Respecting people's feelings and treating their belief system is severely important. Here are the things that you must not do while visiting Thailand: 

Don't touch people's head

Although it's not usual to touch people's heads, touching Thai people's heads has another explanation. They believe that the head is the cleanest part of one's body, and nobody should touch it. So, be very careful not to touch people's heads while walking in Thailand's road. Touching or hugging the monks is even more dangerous as the monks are extremely respectable here. You cannot touch them; you cannot even stand at the same height as a monk. 

Use your feet carefully

In Thailand, you cannot use your feet for anything possible. You cannot point your feet towards a temple or a monk. Monks, the Buddha, and the temples are the most respectful thins in Thailand. Never keep your feet in a direction where it's pointing to a temple or a monk.

Use your shoes carefully

You cannot put on your shoes and enter a temple or any house in Thailand. Temples are sacred places where wearing shoes is a sign of disrespect. Even some restaurants restrict the use of shoes inside, be sure to use a pair of Slip-on shoes for easy access.
