Namaste, App Kaise Ho…translation in English.. Hello, How are you??

Last year I understood the importance of knowing some words of local language. How?? Here is the story..

During my Thailand Trip, I visited Koh Phi Phi and Koh Tao islands. Being a street food food lover, I tried many local Thai dishes. Thai food is amazing. But I found it little difficult to communicate with local Thai people who hardly understand any English. My experience would have been much much better if I had some knowledge of their language.
