  1. Thai people really are *that* nice. Don’t be surprised if strangers offer you advice or strike up a conversation with you.
  2. In some places, people don’t stand in lines. Instead of queuing up, Thais form a crowd. Stand your ground, and get used to a lack of personal space in public places.
  3. Eat as many mangoes as you possibly can. The mangoes in Thailand are the most delicious in the world. Even try all kinds of fruits.
  4. BYOT (Bring your own toilet paper)
  5. The ICE is okay.
  6. Dining out in Thailand is much, much different from dining out in the West. In Thailand, everyone shares the dishes ordered. Everyone at the table will discuss which dishes to go for and then everyone agrees on a selection of meals to share.
  7. Invest in bug spray
