"What Does "HELLO" In Thai Language ?" (Thai: สวัสดี [Sà-wàt-dee]) | LTFO

Ordinary, Thai people use the word "Sawasdee khrap/kha" [สวัสดี ครับ/ค่ะ], meaning in Thai "Hello" for greeting each other. It is used by Thai people for saying greeting when meet anyone, anywhere and anytime.

Thais greet each other with a "wai(ไหว้)" while saying the words: "Sawasdee(สวัสดี)"

Anyway, formally, Thai language has the particular word of greeting to say in the different of timing too. They are as be

"Arunsawat khrap/kha"
อรุณสวัสดิ์ ครับ/ค่ะ
Good morning.

Alternatively, you can use another word as below instead too.

"Sawasdee tonchao krup/kha”
สวัสดี ตอนเช้า ครับ/ค่ะ ".
Good morning.

To say “Hello” in the afternoon, Thai people say:

"Sawasdee ton-klang-wan khrap/kha"
สวัสดี ตอนกลางวัน ครับ/ค่ะ "
Good afternoon.

What to say in the evening time? To say “Hello” in the evening time in Thai language, use follow state:

"Sawasdee ton-yen khrap/kha”
สวัสดีตอนเย็น ครับ/ค่ะ ".
Good evening.

*Say "Lakon" = "ลาก่อน (Good bye)when they are about to leave.

I almost forget to tell one more thing, Thai use the word "Sawasdee = สวัสดี" to say when they are about to leave (Good bye) too.

Do not worry too much about the three of greetings above. Just remember and use the only one word that would be fine.

You just say "Sawasdee = สวัสดี(Hello)", to greet and to say good bye to Thai people. That would be all right.

"Khrap = ครับ" is no meaning, it is Thai particle putting at the end of sentences for men to use in term of more polite.

If you are a women, you just add the particle "Kha = ค่ะ" instead at the end of sentences you speak.
