Wai Greeting

A very important symbol in Thai culture is the Wai greeting. But what is it, where did it originate from and why do the Thais use it? 

The Wai greeting consists of both palms pushed together in an upright position with your elbows slightly lower. It is similar to how Christians pray in Church but many Thais nod their head slightly as a mark of acknowledgement. The Wai is often accompanied by the word 'Sawadti' which can be used a greeting or farewell.
