Thailand Overview

Thailand is the travel hub of Southeast Asia. Most people coming into the region fly into Bangkok and make that their base for doing the circuit around Southeast Asia. With its lush jungles, famed beaches, world-class diving, amazing food, and cheap prices, Thailand attracts visitors from all walks of life. It is by far my favorite country in the world! You can find super cheap guesthouses, and then seemingly right next door you can find resorts charging upwards of $10,000 USD a night! With all the variance, finding inexpensive accommodations is definitely doable.

Travel through Thailand is easy. The country is a well-worn destination on the backpacking trail and everything is convenient and easy. Though well on the map, there are still good destinations to visit away from the crowds and the prices they bring. Overall, Thailand speaks for itself. It’s so well known around the world that when you hear the name, you already think about beaches, beauty, jungles, and food. And your thoughts are spot on.

Currency: Thai Baht Electricity Socket: 220V AC electricity. Power outlets are usually two-prong round or flat sockets. Be sure to pack a universal travel adaptor so you can still use all your electronic gadgets. Thailand

Visa: Generally speaking, people from the US, UK, and EU passports are given a free 30-day visa when you enter Thailand by air and 15 days if you enter overland. This visa is easily extendable if you want to stay in the country for longer.

ASEAN passport holders get a free 30-day visa upon entry (but some aren’t valid for extension).

Language: In the Thai Islands, English is a lot more common as a lot of people are in the tourism industry. Most people, especially those who work in tour activities and hotels will be able to help you out.

In Northern Thailand and more rural areas, there are chances that you will encounter people who don’t speak English. However, don’t fret. Smiles and a fun game of charades is a great way to get to know the locals.

Thailand is endless, from lush rainforests and tropical wildlife, to sugary beaches and magical waterfalls. Ancient ruins sit next to glittering temples, while floating markets lead to sizzling street food stalls. A Thailand holiday with VietAsia Travel will take you from the hill-tribe villages of Chiang Mai, to the crumbling ruins of Ayutthaya, and to the technicolour reefs of Phuket. We’ll navigate the vibrant flower markets of Bangkok, cruise the Chao Phraya River on an antique rice barge, and cross the historic Bridge over the River Kwai. Known as the ‘Land of Smiles’, you’ll relish the friendly Thais and their relaxed approach to life, often expressed with the phrase ‘sabai sabai’. You’ll find your own tranquility as we practice T’ai Chi with locals, relax on the Phuket shoreline, learn how to cook delicious Thai cuisine, and meet a Buddhist monk in a golden temple.

What is the best month to go to Thailand?

=> Thailand is a great year-round destination, but the best weather is usually between November and April. The climate varies between the east and the west coast. September brings the heaviest rainfall on the west coast, while the east coast gets its highest rainfall in November.

Should I carry cash to Thailand?

=> When travelling in Thailand, you'll need cash for paying in markets, for tuk-tuks (autos), songthaews (local buses) and at the street food joint you badly want to try out. ... If you have apprehensions on carrying so much cash on you, then carry at least cash required for 2-3 days of your stay there.

What is best currency to take to Thailand?

=> You will get your best exchange rate in Thailand. There is NO reason to bring any Thai baht with you to Thailand! Stores and hotels usually have a lower exchange rate than the many bank money changers. My preference is to keep a credit card for emergencies and use cash, travelers checks and debit cards in Thailand.
