My best travel tips
Communication
You don’t need a Sim Card, there is Wifi everywhere …just ask for the password
Buying a Thai simcard is best thing to do, WIFI is not available everywhere. A simcard costs 100 baht and the shop assistant will setup your phone for you. Plus you can buy data packages from 99 baht per week, you can still use WIFI too.
Money and cost
Get out as much money at the ATM as you can each time …doing this will save on ATM fee’s. Just make sure you have somewhere safe to store the extra cash
When travelling down to the islands, go to the train station to buy a ticket …buying a ticket from Hualamphong station is so much cheaper than those rip-off merchants that want to sell you ‘package’ tickets on Khao San Road.
Packing list
Thai Visas are relatively easy to obtain. Most of it is available upon arrival, or if coming from an ASEAN country, you get a free 30 day visa. For those that are planning to stay longer, consider applying for a 6 month visa in the Thai embassy in your home country before leaving. This will save you from having to leave the country every 30 days. Most countries nowadays will ask for proof of an onwards flight exiting the country to consider this as the airport staff can refuse your entry.
Safety and security
Beware of any tuk tuk or taxi drivers who you hire to take you to grand palace, or other attraction they will claim the attraction closes say at lunch time, then offer to take you to jewelry outlets or other novelty store that give them a fee for bringing them customers.
Tours and attractions
Look into the schedule of holidays and big celebrations such as Songkran (a really awesome water festival) and Loy Krathong and try to fit it in your trip. There are also the monthly full moon festivals to look out for.
Transportation
Always ask a taxi to put the meter on …if they refuse then just try another taxi. It’ll take no more than 2 or 3 attempts to find one that will, and it’ll be MUCH cheaper.
Take the train from the airport into central Bangkok …It’s like 30 baht vs 400 baht (not exact) and is so easy! After you pick up your baggage just follow the signs for the Airport Rail Link (downstairs a few flights), buy a ticket to the end of the line, then just pick up a metered taxi when you get there to your final destination.
if travelling down to the islands it’s worth checking the NokAir and AirAsia websites, as ‘flight and ferry’ packages nowadays can sometimes be almost as cheap as the train.
axis will not always put the meter on and you are right, just move on another taxi. Another tip is always have small change and notes for the taxi, many will say that they do not have change of a 500 or 100 baht note.
