Thailand travel tips

1.Best time to visit Thailand

Thailand is best visited between late November and early April. The nation may be visited all year round even though the climate differs throughout the board. The eastern and western beaches of the south have different climates. In the winter, the west coast is more advantageous. The majority of the year is pleasant for travelers along Thailand’s east coast. There, rainfall is least in January and February and most abundant in November.


2.Do’s and Don’ts in Thailand

Learn a few useful phrases

Thais are very proud people and will appreciate you taking an interest in their language. Here are some of our go-to phrases:

Hello – Sawasdee krap

Thank you – khawp khun krap

Goodbye – Lah gorn

The bill please – Kep tang krap

Delicious – Aroi

No spice – Mai pet

No sugar – Mai sai nam tam

Avoid drinking tap water

Avoid drinking tap water in Thailand without purifying it first. We use a Steripen to purify our drinking water. Its ultraviolet light purifies water in seconds making it safe to drink.

Carry cash

It is highly recommended to carry cash with you while going to the markets of Thailand. A credit card usually doesn’t work at many local shops and stalls. Some smaller accommodations also prefer taking cash.

Be careful while enjoying the nightlife

While enjoying your time in Krabi, Bangkok or Phuket, ensure that you follow the general safety tips. Do not leave your drink unattended, avoid going to ill-lit areas, avoid getting heavily drunk, etc.


Supplied at 220 volts AC. Two-pin sockets taking plugs with flat prongs are the norm.

Cover up

Whether you are male or female, skimpy clothing is frowned upon. Especially when visiting temples and places of worship and in rural areas. Make sure to respect the culture and cover your knees and shoulders when entering a temple or wat

Watch out for scams

Speaking of Tuk-tuks, watch out for the tuk tuk scam. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. That means they’ll be taking you around to perfume shops, antique dealers, jewelry stores, and anything else they can get you to buy. Just say NO if you do not want so.

Learn to bargain

For example, if you go to a flea market and you are looking to buy a souvenir, always ask for the price first and negotiate. Once they won’t go any lower, go to another store and repeat. Do that a few times for other stores nearby, and you should be able to get the cheapest price possible.
