Sabai dii mai? Is a common Thai greeting that’s understood by locals as “How are you?” Though, a direct translation runs somewhere along the lines of: “Is everything well and good?”

The word that’s often translated as “relaxed“, sabai is used in many instances. The simplest would be “comfortable“, as in kao-ii nii sabai or “this chair is comfortable”, but “physical wellness“, “tranquility“, “happiness“, “contentment” and even “inner peace” are also there in the many layers of the word. In relation to the Thai people and culture, sabai could be viewed as a sort of optimal status quo–a life goal, one could say. This could be a reason why the Thais are so well-versed with the art of relaxation.

Here are a few of their best spots where you can strip your worries away:
