The best bit about traveling is not just the stunning beaches, parties or new friends, but being able to engage with the locals and discover why Thailand is called the Land of Smiles.
Leo decided to help! Leo has created Backpackpedia (see what they did there!)
Here is the guide to partying like the locals that will help you fit in with Thai life from Day 1.
We’ve already brought you a way to meet the locals by using the fun word ‘Chaiyo’, Rod Song Taew, Kang Keng Lay, Kra Tik and ‘Pa kao mar so next on the list is…
Muay Thai jor too
Muay Thai is famous across the world and is the national sport of Thailand. You will often see a group locals watching this on TV in the same way people watch football back home. In Thai this is called ‘Muay Thai jor too’ which translates to watching Muay Thai on TV.
For that true authentic Thai experience, why not join them and cheer on the local hero whilst enjoying a Leo. The perfect way to celebrate a win is to cheers with your new Thai friends by saying 'Chai Yo’ with a Leo!
