5 Best Words to Compliment a Woman

How to Compliment a Woman in Thai

Beautiful is the classic way to describe a feminine beautyI am sure most of you already knew the word “/สวย sŭai/” which means ‘beautiful’.

There are interesting and useful phrases that you could use when you want to give a woman a nice compliment that she is beautiful. Let’s have a look;


  1. สวยไม่เปลี่ยน /sŭai mâi bplìan/

“เปลี่ยน /bplìan/” means ‘change’ , “ไม่เปลี่ยน /mâi bplìan/” is ‘not change’. So the the English translation for “สวยไม่เปลี่ยน /sŭai mâi bplìan/ would be ‘you are still beautiful as always’.


2. สวยไม่สร่าง /sŭai mâi sàang/

สร่าง /sàang/ in this context means ‘fade‘.

สวยไม่สร่าง /sŭai mâi sàang/ is used to convey the meaning that “your beauty hasn’t faded”.


3. สวยเว่อร์ /sŭai wêr/

เว่อร์ /wêr/ is slang which means ‘too much’ or ‘exaggerate’ or ‘overact’.

สวยเว่อร์/sŭai wêr/ means ‘VERY VERY beautiful’

This phrase is commonly used by young people.


4. สวยไม่เกรงใจใคร /sŭai mâi greeng-jai krai/

You might be familiar with the phrase “เกรงใจ /greeng-jai/”. There is no direct ranslation for this word, it has similar meaning to the English word ‘to be considerate.’

ไม่เกรงใจ /mâi greeng jai/ would mean ‘inconsiderate’.

ใคร/krai/ in this context means ‘anyone, someone’

So the translation for สวยไม่เกรงใจใคร /sŭai mâi greeng-jai krai/ would be “you are just so beautiful and you are not considerate what people would feel about your beauty.”

5. สวยอย่างกับนางฟ้า  /sŭai yàang gàp naang-fáa/

นางฟ้า /naang-fáa/ means ‘angel’. อย่างกับ /yàang gàp/ is a phrase used for simile.

This phrase means ‘you are beautiful as an angel.’



I just wanted to repeat that the word สวย/sŭai/ is RISING TONE. If you mispronounce it with Middle Tone, it would have a negative meaning ‘bad luck’. Instead of getting a bright smile back you might get something else. Be careful for this one!

    What about “Souay ngaam”? Do you say that in central Thai or is it an Isaan thing?

      “สวยงาม sŭai-ngaam” is central Thai but it sounds pretty formal so it is not commonly used in spoken Thai.

      Thank you for your suggestion. I can’t make the Thai alphabets bigger in the video because of the video editing tool I am using. However I can make the text bigger on the post I will improve it in the future.
