How do You Say Hello in Thai?

In Thailand, the general greeting equivalent to ‘hello’ is ‘sa-wat dee.’ ‘Sa-wat dee’ is also used to mean ‘goodbye.’ However, if you wish to be more specific, there are variations, according to gender. If you’re a woman, you say, ‘sawa dee-ka.’ But if you’re a man, you will say, ‘sawa dee-krap.’
