To Wai in Thailand is a traditional greeting, I’m told they don’t shake hands. It’s holding the hands up to the face together like a prayer. A younger person should always wai the older person first, so it’s also a mark of respect.
I do do it when I remember, especially if someone’s gone out of their way to help me.
I like the two little girl-gnomes with the free wifi sign, it’s welcoming and ‘cool’, well for me anyway 🙂

We should do the same…Beautiful gesture.
What a charming tradition! Stops the spread of germs, too!
Very much, I’ve learnt to fit in and do it instinctively now with thai people …
