Retire to Pattaya Thailand!

 

The three Thai phrases you MUST know!

Learning Thai is not easy for most people because unlike Western (phonetic) languages, it uses five tones.

But by living in Pattaya and PRACTICING daily you CAN become proficient.
Here's three essential phrases you'll need when you walk off the plane in Bangkok:

sah-waah-dee, krawhp (Hello, Men)

Kawp kuuhn, krawhp (Thank you)

Kortoad, krawhp (Sorry)
Note: For a MAN, each phrase ends in 'krawhp' while a WOMAN would use 'khaa'.

Just knowing these simple phrases will have a HUGE impact on your stay in Thailand--Thais respect Westerners that try to speak their language.
