Wai is the Thai welcome each other by a salutation, placing the palms of their hands together as in prayer and raising them to the level of their face whilst bowing slightly.

All greetings, such as Hi, Hello are also called sawadee in Thai. For men say "Sawadee Kub" and women say "Sawadee Ka". Thai people pay respect to someone who is older as senior and we respect them as boss in a service business.
