Abstract: This article reviews the result of a study of Thai cultural universals as tourism products and tourism communication. The process of this study began with collecting cultural universals under George Murdock's framework of knowledge (1945). Eleven Thai tourism cultural product universals were selected by seven experts from different areas of work and used in communication with tourists to understand the perceptions and attitudes that prompted their decision to travel to Thailand. The results show that 625 tourists in Chiang Mai, Sukhothai, Ayutthaya and Bangkok agreed that only nine of the 11 potential Thai cultural universals could be used to communicate as tourism products. Those nine potential Thai cultural universals were cooking, weaving, ethno-botany, dancing, decorative art, folklore, therapy/medicine, marriage and education, respectively.
