Travel Tips

I follow these travel tips and consider them an important part of preparing for international travel.

Whenever you go overseas you leave behind all those support systems that you rely on in your home country.

You will be a long way from home when you travel to Thailand and it makes sense to prepare for your trip.

I have put together a checklist of things that you should consider beforehand and some common sense precautions you can take whilst travelling.

Bangkok Travel Tips

Pre Travel Planning

Create yourself a little kit consisting of:

  • Insect repellent
  • mozzie zapper
  • sunscreen
  • imodium
  • sticking plasters
  • analgesics
  • antacids

These few items will cover the most likely events and save you from having to be searching around for a pharmacy at 1:00 am.

You probably have most of these things already in your home and you can put them into one of those spare little airline bags that collect in the cupboard.

One of my favourite backpacks is the Conni Cocci brand and I explain why it is my bag of choice here.

Passport and Visa

When travelling to Thailand you will need a current passport with at least 6 month remaining on it before expiry.

Generally for short stays of 30 days or less nationals of 40 different countries do not need a visa when travelling for tourist purposes.

However the requirements are different by nationality and trip type so you should check with your travel agent, airline or by visiting the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Kingdom of Thailand at the Thai visa office.
