Language in Bangkok

Language in Bangkok

The official language in Bangkok is Thai, but it's increasingly common to find people who speak English but only in the more touristic parts of the city. Here you'll find some useful expressions.

Although these days its relatively easy to communicate in English, it's always a good idea to learn a bit of the local language to avoid problems when visiting Bangkok.
