Very very basic Thai phrases

I've been able to get by with English here in Chiang Mai with no major issues. But here's some very basic but useful phrases for travelling in Thailand:

  • Hello: pronounced like sah-wa-dee-khrap for men and sah-wa-dee-kah for women
  • Thank you: kop-khun-khrap for men and kop-khun-kah for women
  • Yes: chai-khrap for men and chai-kah for women
  • No: mai-chai-khrap for men and mai-chai-kah for women
  • Bye: Lah-gohn-khrap for men and lah-gohn-kah for women

I found this YouTube video pretty good with pronunciations and stuff.
