THAI // Basic Words + Phrases for Travelers

Jack teaches you key Thai words and phrases for travelers!

Please note: These are just basics for people who would like to know a few key words and phrases while traveling. They are broken down into their simplest forms for quick learning. There are some things that are complex and take longer to learn, such as the subtleties between R and L, D and T, as well as B and P, all of which are interchanged often when using the English alphabet. So please just take this for what it is – quick traveler lingo! Happy travels!

We also filmed a video about Thai culture!

    I think you have problem about "R sound" in Thai. Because you use "L sound " instead of "R sound". That are wrong "Arun sawas" is right "Alun sawas" is wrong and you should say "Ratree sawas" not "Latee sawas"
