    Quite often I want to be able to say "I don't believe you" when confronted by touts. Normally I would say "mai ow" for "do not want". But, I just want to go a bit further. I have been to Thailand quite a few times and I just want to show I am an old hand. Many of them are trying to sell something which is impossible or tell me something which is untrue.

    I don't believe you would be 'mai cheua' ไม่เชื่อ or you could also say 'it's not true' which is 'mai jing' ไม่จริง

    Thanks Mike. I actually have sound clips for these two phrases on the learningthai.com site. As this new board supports Flash insertion I will give it a go:

    (1) I don&#39;t believe you = <OBJECT CLASSID="clsid27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" WIDTH=58 HEIGHT=45><PARAM NAME=MOVIE VALUE=http://www.learningthai.com/conversation/sayno_07.swf><PARAM NAME=PLAY VALUE=TRUE><PARAM NAME=LOOP VALUE=TRUE><PARAM NAME=QUALITY VALUE=HIGH><EMBED SRC=http://www.learningthai.com/conversation/sayno_07.swf WIDTH=58 HEIGHT=45 PLAY=TRUE LOOP=TRUE QUALITY=HIGH></EMBED></OBJECT> (mai cheu)

    (2) It is not true = <OBJECT CLASSID="clsid27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" WIDTH=59 HEIGHT=45><PARAM NAME=MOVIE VALUE=http://www.learningthai.com/conversation/sayno_08.swf><PARAM NAME=PLAY VALUE=TRUE><PARAM NAME=LOOP VALUE=TRUE><PARAM NAME=QUALITY VALUE=HIGH><EMBED SRC=http://www.learningthai.com/conversation/sayno_08.swf WIDTH=59 HEIGHT=45 PLAY=TRUE LOOP=TRUE QUALITY=HIGH></EMBED></OBJECT> (mai jing)

    More useful phrases like these can be found on the How to Say No page.
