Blend in to the
Culture of Thailand
95% of the Thai population practices Theravada Buddhism. Approximately seventy-five distinct ethnic groups inhabit this province, with Central Tai being the dominant one, accounting for 36% of the total population. A unique feature of the Thai culture is generally, the youngest sibling is expected to look after the parents upon old age & s/he is the one who inherits the parents’ property. Thai people tend to live in nuclear families & the married couples are expected to move out and live on their own as soon as possible. Touching a person’s head in Thailand is not encouraged as the head is considered to be the highest part of the body and commands respect. Various Buddhism related festivals are celebrated throughout the domain in accordance with the Buddhist religious calendar.
