Abstract: The study examined ethical decision-making of hospitality and tourism students in Southern Thailand. Thai H&T students perceived higher level of moral intensity in social and economical scenarios and showed lower awareness on ecological ethics. They generally decide according to justice and relativism theories give a little weight to duties and obligations (deontology theory) and are less teleological when making decisions in ethical situations. The findings provided support for gender differences in evaluation of ethical dilemmas but there were no considerable differences between males and females in using different theories in ethical decision making.
