So, you are in Thailand for the first time. Or maybe you have visited a few times. Chances are that you have started liking Thai girls for their beauty, charm and friendliness.
So, you head out to a bar or a club looking for lovely Thai girls but you don’t know how to approach them or tell them that you are interested.
You might even want to tell one that you like her. Maybe even tell her that you love her after a few dates.
Well, before you do, and now that we've covered the basic Thai words and phrases you must know, you should learn some phrases and pick up lines in Thai that will help you in the long run.
Once you have mastered these, then we recommend using the L word (which we will also teach you how to say).
Compliment Girls in Thai
Before you profess your love for a Thai girl in a bar or a club, especially if it is one of The PIMP models, it might be a good idea to give her some compliments first.
Lay the foundation with some sweet talk, otherwise you may come off a bit creepy.
Here are some nice and sweet phrases you can use on any Thai girl to catch their attention.
How are you? - Sabai dii mai? (สบายดีไหม?)
You are so beautiful – khun suay mak (คุณสวยมาก)
You are cute – khun na rak (คุณน่ารัก)
You have beautiful eyes – khun mii duang taa thîi suay (คุณมีดวงตาที่สวย)
I like your smile – choob roy yim khong khun (ชอบรอยยิ้มของคุณ)
You look so sexy – khun duu sexy mak (คุณดูเซ็กซี่มาก)
You are an angel – khun khuu nangfa (คุณคือนางฟ้า)
I miss you – phom khidthung khun (ผมคิดถึงคุณ) – a simple but good one to let her know you’re thinking of her
Darling / honey / babe / dear – theerak (ที่รัก) you can use this word to call her in a sweet and lovey-dovey way and it all means the same.

How To Say “I like you” in Thai
Love is a strong word. It shouldn’t be thrown around so why not trying saying “I like you” first. It’s simple:
I like you - phom choob khun (ฉันชอบคุณ)
You can even drop the pronoun I (phom) and in some cases you can even substitute you (khun) with the name of the girl.
So, it would be something like:
Choob Ploy – it may sound weird but Thais actually use it a lot and it sounds cute to them.
How To Say “I love you” in Thai
Now when your feelings have gotten stronger and you know your Thai girlfriend is ready to hear it, you can move on to the I love you part.
I love you - phom rak khun (ผมรักคุณ)
The word for love is rak (รัก), so similar to I like you, it would be “phom rak khun” or simply Rak Ploy (or whatever her name is).
It really depends on if you want to be formal or informal with the girl.
To take it to the next level, you can also say lung rak khun khaew laew (หลงรักคุณเข้าแล้ว), which means you are madly in love with her.
That should really catch her attention!
By the way, if you want to know if she feels the same way about you, check our post on the top signs that show a Thai girl likes you.
Think you are ready to meet some cute girls, flirt with them and more?
Then come on down to The PIMP and practice your Thai with our PIMP Cats. It will be a night you will never forget.
And don’t fall in love too fast. Why fall in love with one girl when you can have them all?
Special note: Thai language is extremely tonal so it might be difficult to get the words right but if the context is there, they will most likely understand you and appreciate the effort. So don’t worry too much about it. Give it your best!
