What you need to know
Information and Facts
Thailand has three seasons: the wet season (November to February), the cool season (May to October), and the hot season (February to May). If it’s beaches you seek, Koh Samui is the perfect place to visit during the hot season. For those who like hiking in the forests or checking out mountains, the cool season is recommended to travellers, when there are cool breezes and beautiful flowers are beginning to bloom.
Thailand is generally a very safe destination all year round. It is recommended to take any necessary precautions as you would when at home; bring sun block and apply regularly, stay hydrated often, wear long-sleeved clothing to prevent burn or insect bites and have copies on-hand of your important documents (ie: passport, excursion/tour confirmations, event tickets, etc.), while keeping them stored separately (and safely) from the originals. We recommend that all our travellers purchase travel insurance to cover theft, loss, cancellations/travel interruptions, accidents and non-pre-existing medical problems.
While some vaccines may be recommended when travelling around Asia – WHO recommends travellers be up to date with their Tetanus, Diphtheria and Hepatitis A & Hepatitis B shots – there aren’t any known ailments or endemic diseases where there is a need for a particular immunisation required for travel.
In general, prior to departure for any vacation, it’s always best to speak with your physician, who knows your medical history, and can assess any risks involved with your intended destination.
Currency & Customs
The currency of Thailand is the Thai Baht and is comes in both coin and banknote form.
Bargaining is encouraged at the marketplaces in Thailand, as it is part of their culture to haggle; prices can be reduced drastically by haggling at most stalls.
Visitors are allowed to enter Thailand with personal items of value that does not exceed 80, 000 Baht.
There are restrictions on the amounts of alcohol and tobacco products brought into Thailand. Plants and animals, and products made from such, may be subject to restrictions and quarantine.
The electric current is 220 Volt AC throughout Thailand. To know if your electronics need both an adaptor and converter, best to speak with an electronic specialist.
Majority of the population in Thailand speak Thai or one of its regional dialects. English is also spoken and understood throughout much of Thailand.
