There are several ways of saying “welcome home” in Thai. Below are the different ways to say Welcome Home.
Yin Dee Ton Rub Grub Baan
Yin Dee Ton Rub Grub Ban means you are happy that the person you are saying it to is home and you welcome him. Each word above has the following meaning:
Yin Dee = I’m happy
Ton Rub (Dtorn Rab) = welcome
Grub Baan = returning home
Altogether it is the best way to say Welcome Home in Thai because it means that you are happy that the person is returning home and you are welcoming him or her (the phrase is not gender specific and can be used to welcome a man or a woman home).
Khor Thon Rub Suu Ban (Kor Dtorn Rab Suu Barn)
Some people say this is the way to say Welcome Home but while grammatically it is ok, Thai People usually don’t say this phrase as much as the first Welcome Home phrase. Why? Because each word means:
Kor = Please (I beg)
Dtorn Rab = welcome
Suu = into (formal)
Barn (Ban) = home
|This phrase is more formal than the first Welcome Home phrase. If you are going to use the second Welcome Home phrase, it has better be someone you are very formal with, not just your family members. It has to be with someone you respect greatly.|
