It is impossible to have cosmetic surgery in Thailand without first taking a look at the local cultures and customs. It would be extremely rude to travel to a nation where things are a little different and not make an attempt to fit in. We must remember that not every country has the same rules of etiquette as we have at home. So if you are one of the estimated 300,000 tourists who visit Thailand each week, it’s important to find out more about how people are expected to behave. We expect those who visit our respective shores to obey the laws of our society and the Thai people are no different.
A Little ExtraIf you are from the United States, tipping is expected in your homeland. If you are from a European country, it may or may not be necessary in your society. In Thailand, many restaurants include tips in your final bill as a service charge. This is common practice across the globe so most people will not see this as peculiar. Aside from this service charge, all other forms of tipping are at your discretion. It would be a good time to remind you that most workers earn a less than spectacular wage so if they provide you with first rate service, you should reward them with more than a smile and a ‘thank you’. If you avail of professional services such as a hairdresser’s, it is customary to leave a tip. It is not mandatory to give the surgeon performing your cosmetic surgery in Thailand a tip however!
Long Live the KingIf you are from a nation with a monarchy, you should understand the reverence in which they are held in your home country. Thailand also has a monarchy and Thais revere the King and the Royal Family more than anyone else in the country. You will see his picture adorn many homes and businesses across the nation which is a testament to his popularity. You are not allowed to show disrespect for any member of the Royal Family. This includes accidentally stepping on a coin or note as these adorn the image of the King.
Taxi!If you are having cosmetic surgery in Thailand , your clinic may provide you with a driver to and from the airport. However, you will still need transportation within the region where you are having the procedure. When hailing a taxi, keep your arm extended outward with your hand facing horizontal. Having your fingers in the air while hiring a taxi is considered to be rude. You should also avoid making whistling noises or clicking your fingers. Although tips are not mandatory in taxis, taxi fares can be rounded up with the driver getting the difference as a tip.
Having cosmetic surgery in Thailand allows you to save a fortune on a procedure that could change your life. Don’t ruin your experience by being the person who fails to respect local traditions and customs. Show respect for Thailand and its people and they will show you the same in return.
