Answer this Question

"In Hua Hin, it is important to be mindful of cultural norms and customs. It is considered rude to point with your feet, so it is best to avoid doing so. Additionally, it is important to dress modestly and to cover your shoulders and knees when visiting temples or other sacred sites. It is also important to be respectful when taking photographs, and to ask permission before taking pictures of people or sacred sites. Finally, it is important to be aware of the local customs and to show respect for the Thai people and their culture," remarked another expat in Hua Hin, Thailand.
