Although Western numerals (Arabic numbers) are now widely used in Thai writing, there are also ten Thai glyphs for numbers. You can see it on Thai banknotes and coins, or if you visit tourist attractions i.e. museums, important temples, historical parks, you will see Thai numerals used to show the entrance fee. Sadly but true, the practice of dual pricing by using Thai letters and numbers, is widespread in Thailand as well as many other Asian countries. (See the photos at the bottom of this post).
When I was a young student, my teacher played a game with the students in the class. We learned Thai numerals with our hands. Check it out if I can do it well:)
