    In two weeks I'm going to Thailand to "meet the parents". Learningthai.com has been a great asset. Aside of the learningthai.com phrases any other good suggestions? All inputs are appreciated.

    Hi Mirolator,
    Buy some gifts for the parents. And by all means try to follow the Thai traditions and customs. And don't worry. They know that you are not familiar with the Thai way of life. They will go out of their way to make you comfortable.

    isn't there a proper way to wai? Like how far to raise your hands? Or how low to lower your head?

    to meet the parents, wow.. GOOD LOUCK!!

    about the proper way to "wai"
    i'm not really sure, but i think this is the way..
    1. the tip of your thumbs should touch the tip of your nose
    2. the tip of your indexes should touch your forehead

    i ask that because I remember hearing or reading somewhere that when you 'wai' you shouldn't have tip of your indexes fingers go past your nose. Only in comedy show do i see
