    The Biggest influence to Thai people is the Lao people, funny how they left that out, like I said, all Thai people came from Laos, Thai Language came from Lao people

    Ramkhamhaeng spoke Lao language and his family originated from Northern Laos before they migrated south.

    Khamhaeng is a Laotian name, Kham and Haeng are two Lao words that don’t even exist in Thai language

    Both Northern and Northeast Thailand, the local dialects are 99% to 100% similar or the same as Lao language, however the local dialects in those regions is only 60% similar to Thai language,

    so they speak a lot more like Lao people then Thai. Northern Thailand and Northeast Thailand (the majority of Thailand) these people are Ethnicity, linguistically, culturally more similar to Lao people then they are to Thai

    Using the wai for greetings should be left to the Thais, as it has a complex set of rules and only makes visitors look foolish, disrespectful, or cute and humerus to the locals. When a Thai gives you a wai just smile and nod. In very formal situations ask when, to whom, and exactly how you should wai. Yes…there are different ways to wai. How high you hold your hands, from chest to forehead, changes depending on the circumstance. Examples: never wai a child and when the clerk at a cash register gives you a wai you should not return the wai.
