Buddhists are Conservative in General

While seeing some of the party girls in Bangkokand Pattaya may suggest otherwise, Buddhists are very conservative in general. Notice how men rarely wear shorts and often wear long sleeves even in hot weather.

Be careful about touching members of the opposite sex, especially outside of big cities or tourist areas. Even a well-meant gesture such as a hug or squeeze could be misinterpreted the wrong way.
