This Thailand Travel Advice Guide provides you with some great suggestions and recommendations for a hassle free travel experience while on vacation in one of the most exquisite and enchanting places on our planet. The graph above also shows you just how important it is to pack the proper stuff before embarking on your epic journey. It's filled with plenty of useful packing tips, tricks and travel products.
Having prior knowledge and information on all aspects of travel with regard to passport and customs concerns. Need daily updates on the latest weather report statistics. Emergency health related matters that might necessitate addressing.
Many money matter issues. How the banking system operates. What the current exchange rates are. Where to locate ATM machines in cities, resort towns and rural areas. Incidentally, almost all the locals will be able to direct you to the closest ATM. Just be extra vigilant with overly eager locals who consider westerners as the real ATM machines.
Understanding a few words or phrases will go a long way to solving some of the seemingly mysterious ways of Thai culture which some westerners may find difficult to grasp. I'll attempt to explain all this.
The Telephone system is run by the Telephone Organization of Thailand (TOT) under the umbrella of the Communications Authority of Thailand (CAT). Not only can you make local calls from public pay phones found on all the main roads, but also many of the minor roads too. International calls can be made from most business centres and all the major hotels.
There are other
communications network services available to you regarding things such as broadband Internet as well as
newspapers and magazines, television and radio, fax and telex and mail and courier services. You'll get all the relevant information here.
If you are concerned about the type of clothing you may need to pack and what should be worn be it day or night, summer or winter. Just for the record, there is no real winter so to speak of in Thailand. Even when it rains, it's warm enough to go about your business with the lightest of clothing. Only during the cool season in the northern regions you'd need a sweater, or at the very most, a light coat.
What about planning your trip with kids? Need to know about travelling if you are disabled or how tolerant the country is towards the gay traveller.
Need to find a useful address, a tourist office, a special social club or an important website. How about air travel and airlines information. Desire a favourite or informative book or music store then this advice guide will endeavour to provide you with the relevant information.
