Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anybody know the correct and decent way to pay respect to a Thai lady , no jokes please.

    What I want to do is just say thank you to her. For her help when a friend died.
  2. Kap un kat (sp).
  3. Buy her something nice it's not difficult.

  5. Hello mate,

    a swift google yields this...

    Khob Khun means thank you in Thai. It is the most universal way to say Thank You in Thai. However to make it more polite, you often say one of the two:

    Khob Khun Ka – if you are a female (formal and polite)

    Khob Khun Krup – if you are a male (formal and polite)

    There are also other variations of how to say Thank You in Thai such as the following ways. Sometimes you can just say Khob Khun if you are saying it to someone who has less status than yourself.

    Other ways of how to say thank you in Thai

    Khob Khun Na = Thank you (informal, for friends)

    Khob Khun Maak = Thank you very much (informal but means you really thank the person)

    Khob Jai

    Khob Jai is a little different from Khob Khun because Jai means Heart so Khob Jai means Thank you for your kindness. For example, when someone does something nice to you out of thier own kindness, you can say Khob Jai Na, Khob Jai Ka or Khob Jai Krub. However, Khob Jai is no where near as formal as Khob Khun so you would never say Khob Jai to someone older than you or someone of higher status than you.

    i don't think a decent bunch of flowers would go down badly either.

  8. I always found slipping a $20 note into her stocking top did the trick.

  10. "Khob Khun Ka – if you are a female (formal and polite)

    Khob Khun Krup – if you are a male (formal and polite)"

    Best answer IMHO.

    Even better if you Wai at the same time.
    Place both hands together as if you where praying, Christian Style, and raise them so fingers come just below your nose.
    Do not raise your fingers to top of your head or below your chin.

    Oh and SMILE, a sincere smile goes a long way in Thailand.
  11. I don't suppose she is married and looking for a full time live in housekeeper job in Surrey is she?
