Temples and other national monuments
have a strict dress code.
No shorts, sleeveless tops, or risqué dress.
This is true of most religious places the world over
but in Thailand, travelers should also
not wear open heeled sandals
(there must be a strap behind the heel).

Thai Customs
Shorts are considered appropriate
only for children and the lower class.
The head is considered sacred (closest to the heavens)
so do not touch.
Actually try not to touch the locals at all.
Feet are also to be treated with care.
To point your feet at a person
is considered a grave insult and
to sit with soles exposed extremely rude
(especially in religious places).
Sit with feet tucked under the body.
No public displays of affection.
Keep that for the privacy of your room.
As with most countries, but especially Thailand,
do not criticize the local government or monarchy.
