Have a good trip!

Recommended Posts

Is there a Thai phrase equivalent to "bon voyage" ? Everything I've been able to find seems rather clumsy for what must be a commonly expressed sentiment.

Normally, what you get from this forum is: 'Don't let the door hit you in the axx on the way out!"

I usually get a "Chok Dee" from the cab drivers who drop me off at the airport

Good luck, I expect you know that already.

You would only say Have a good trip once wouldn't you?  โชคดี = fortune good/ luck good to a taxi driver while paying a fare plus tip.  Just as in English final parting words friend might be good luck, the friendly particle นะ might be added. โชคดีนะ

Thanks to all for the constructive suggestions. Not too many surprises but this in itself is very valuable since it shows I was on the right track.

 

Thanks again.

เดินทางโดยสวัสดิภาพ is the one I usually hear.

Sawasdee was originally farewell and used when sending someone off

“Good morning” likewise but many people say it as a greeting.
