Things to Bring

Below is given the checklist of all the essentials that you need to carry before you start your journey:

Passport: Once it is stamped at the immigration, make photocopy of the relevant pages and keep it with you at all times. If you are leaving the city for the weekend, carry your passport - it’s a must.

Medical Insurance: Make sure to carry the document in case there is any emergency situation arises.

Currency : It’s easy to exchange if you carry your currency in USD. There are currency exchange booths at the airport. Plan your budget carefully. In Bangkok 400-500 THB is good money for a day expense. It may be less if you are comfortable with the street food.

Medicines and Contact Lenses: If you are on a prescription drug or wear contact lenses please carry those. The Pharmacies in and around Bangkok all stock up on international brands of medicine but the generic name may not be the same. In most pharmacies the assistants are fluent in English and very helpful.

Toiletries: Carry the basics of the preferred brands to get you started. However, you would get in the convenience stores, who stock up on the global brands.

Clothes: Carry both formals and casual clothes including formal footwear, 2-3 sets of formal wear is fine. Thailand is a tropical country, therefore cotton works best. Woolens are rarely required, but good rain wear and an umbrella for the monsoon is a must. For summer the best one is a cap or a broad brimmed hat.

Luggage: Try to buy light weight luggage for easy mobility. This is because most domestic airlines in Thailand allow around 15 kg of checked in baggage and 7 kg of hand baggage including the laptop. Excess baggage comes with a heavy penalty, therefore, try to avoid.

Mobile: You may have to take a new SIM / calling card and keep in touch with your near and dear ones.

Adaptor: This is required to charge your mobile, camera or any other electronic gadgets.

Camera: Make sure you carry a camera so that you can capture your happy moments and carry them back to your home country.

Safety in Bangkok

Bangkok is reasonably safe unless you are at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Some SAFETY TIPS for you -

  • Be careful of your handbag/wallet, especially if you are traveling in public transports. Carry the change to pay the fare, so that you do not have to open your wallet/purse often. Keep your eyes open for pickpockets and avoid keeping your wallet in the back/hip pocket.
  • Passport needs to be with you at all times. Within Bangkok you may carry the photocopy of the relevant pages but while traveling away from the city, it’s a must that you carry your passport and medical insurance.
  • Be careful of your mobile phone, jewelry and camera. Try to avoid crowded places.
  • While riding motor bike, always wear a helmet and safety jacket.
  • For all private transports like taxis/tuk-tuks/motorbike taxis please ensure that there is a fixed rate or meter or you will see you have ended up paying three times the actual fare. Taxis have a fixed meter, and if they ask for extra avoid those.
  • Gem scam. Sometimes the transport drivers take you to a Gem factory and you may need to buy fake stones at a higher rate.
  • Strangers at the bar. Do not let the nightlife carry you away. Avoid strangers.
  • Rules. Do not break rules. Police intervention is never a pleasant experience. For photography in public places look out for signs which says “photography prohibited” and act accordingly.
  • Avoid deserted areas and desolate places. In case of emergency keep a contact’s number on the fast-dial of your mobile. Better safe than sorry.
