FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I need a visa to enter Thailand?
It depends on where you are from. In some cases, you will not need a visa if you and planning to stay in Thailand for less than 30 days.
When is the best time to travel?
The most pleasant temperatures are from November to February. The hottest months are April and May and the monsoon period lasts from June to October. Heavy rain is more frequent during this last month.
What is the best area to stay in?
That would depend on how you approach your trip: backpackers usually stay in Khaosan Road and the surrounding area, in Skukhumvit and Silom there are a lot of services and a cosmopolitan atmosphere, and, if landmarks are your thing, then in Rattanakosin you will be close to the main sights. Siam Square is also a good central option.
Is Bangkok a safe city?
Bangkok is a safe city, because tourism is highly protected. At the same time, however, small tourist scams are very widespread too: keep an eye on taxi and tuk-tuk prices and the "temple is closed” trick.
What kind of weather can I expect?
Bangkok has a humid tropical climate with an average annual temperature of between 27ºC and 30 ºC. There are three seasons: summer (March to May), the rainy season (June-September) and the coolest season (October-November).
Where can I get the best exchange rate?
You can change money in banks or at exchange bureaus, where you will usually get the best exchange rate. Alternatively, you can also change money in hotels or get cash straight from an ATM.
How much should I expect to spend in Thailand?
500 Bahts a day, if you eat at street stalls and use public transport. Staying at a ‘guesthouse’ costs about 250 Bahts, or, if you want a little extra comfort, plan on spending 1000-2000 Bahts a day with accommodation and meals in restaurants.
What is the typical food of Thailand?
The main ingredient in Thai food is rice, but, this is almost always accompanied by spices and vegetables to give a combination of hot, sweet and sour flavours. Don’t miss trying the pad Thai!
How can I move around the city?
Bus is the cheapest way to get around Bangkok, though private and shared taxis and, of course, tuk-tuks are also quick, cheap and affordable. Alternatively, jump on the Skytrain or take the ferry to enjoy the best views while getting around. But forget about hiring a car; the traffic in Bangkok is a nightmare.
What languages are spoken in Thailand?
In Thailand the official language is Thai, although in the capital, where tourism is an important part of the economy, English is the second (unofficial) language.

PLACES TO VISIT IN THAILAND
Given beauty of the architecture and the fine craftsmanship it is not surprising that Wat Arun is considered by many as one of the most beautiful temples in Thailand. It has an imposing spire over 70 metres high, beautifully decorated with tiny pieces of coloured glass and Chinese porcelain placed delicately into intricate patterns. Head into the ordination hall and you can admire a golden Buddha image and the detailed murals that decorate the walls. Although Wat Arun is very popular for tourists, it is also an important place of worship for Buddhists.
Phi Phi Islands
The Phi Phi islands are some of the loveliest in Southeast Asia. Just a 45-minute speedboat trip or a 90-minute ferryboat ride from either Phuket or Krabi, these picture postcard islands offer the ultimate tropical getaway. Featuring classic tropical beaches, stunning rock formations and vivid turquoise waters teeming with colourful marine life, it is paradise perfected. Phi Phi is a group of six islands. The two main islands are Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh. The larger and inhabited Phi Phi Don attracts hundreds of visitors to stay on its lovely shores while the smaller uninhabited Phi Phi Leh hosts stunningly beautiful bays and beaches
Krabi is the main town in the province of Krabi on the west coast of southern Thailand at the mouth of the Krabi River where it empties in Phang Nga Bay. Kayaking, sailing, bird watching, snorkeling are also among top activities. In the interior, two predominantly mainland national parks, Khao Phanom Bencha National Park and Than Bokkhorani, offer inland scenic attractions including waterfalls and caves, and opportunities for trekking, bird watching, and eco-tours. The province includes over 80 smaller islands such as Ko Lanta and Phi Phi, well-known to adventurers, yachtsmen, scuba-divers, snorkelers, and day-trippers from Phuket. Krabi's beaches attract both native Thai people and foreigners alike.

The Grand Palace
If there is one must-see sight that no visit to Bangkok would be complete without, it's the dazzling, spectacular Grand Palace, undoubtedly the city's most famous landmark. Built in 1782 - and for 150 years the home of the Thai King, the Royal court and the administrative seat of government - the Grand Palace of Bangkok is a grand old dame indeed, that continues to have visitors in awe with its beautiful architecture and intricate detail, all of which is a proud salute to the creativity and craftsmanship of Thai people. Within its walls were also the Thai war ministry, state departments, and even the mint. Today, the complex remains the spiritual heart of the Thai Kingdom.
Pattaya is always switched on and fun. This vibrant coastal city shot to fame in early 1980s, and stayed there. From sunrise to sunset, Pattaya’s beaches are constantly brimming with life, as water sports lovers and sun worshippers take to the waters. After dark, the action shifts to the streets, as revellers explore its electrified nightlife scene, where drinking and partying continue until dawn. Apart from water sports and nightlife, Pattaya offers endless possibilities when it comes to accommodation and entertainment. It has outgrown its image as a seedy beach town to a destination for a wider audience; whether couples, families or business travellers, Pattaya has something for everyone.

USEFUL INFORMATION ABOUT BANGKOK
Before you travel to Thailand, it's a good idea to consult your doctor. They may be able to advise on what vaccinations you need. Once you are in Thailand, it is advisable to drink only bottled water.
The Thailand currency is the Baht (TBH). It is best to take your money in cash and change it there. The current exchange rate is US $1= 35 Bahts approximately.
In hotels the plugs are usually a mix of American and European, but if you need an adapter, you can get one there for 20 Bahts. The electricity current is 220V / 50 HZ.
Business hours in shopping malls are from 10:00 to 22:00, although that may vary depending on the shop. There are 24-hours shops all over the city. Banks and museums close at 15:30 and 16:00, respectively.
Traffic and traffic jams
Bangkok is one of the cities with the worst traffic in the world. As well as the infamous traffic jams, the roads are rather chaotic so you must be careful when walking, too. Always look carefully before crossing.
Be practiced to practice this skill in Bangkok. Both market vendors and taxi or tuk-tuk drivers inflate the price and expect you to haggle. What is the trick? Offer half of what you want to pay.
What to wear
Bangkok is almost always very hot so it is better to wear lightweight clothes. Of course, you will have to wear long trousers and shirts or blouses with sleeves as a sign of respect when you are visiting temples. Luckily many offer clothes to cover yourself properly.
Useful telephone numbers
Country prefix: + 66 Emergencies: 191 Tourist police: 1155 or 02 408 0333 Tourist police at Suvarnabhumi airport: 02 132 1155 Tourist police at Don Muang airport: 02 535 1155 Tourist Assistance Centre in Bangkok: 02 356 0650
In Bangkok there are good hospitals, but their prices are quite high and they will only give you medical attention after having previously verified that you can pay. As such, it is a good idea to have medical insurance.
