There are few things you need to know about Thailand before traveling to the country. First, you need to decide how long you are planning to stay in Thailand. For many of us, it’s long distance destination so one week might not be enough to explore and learn about the country. We recommend at least 2 weeks trip there. Then you will have enough time to see different places and maybe have the stomach flu which is quite common for foreigners to have there. The longer you will stay in the country, the more you’ll fall in love with it. There is no such thing as a too long tourism in Thailand.
If you are an adventurer you might want to take your backpack and move around without any real plans. Backpacking opens you multiple options and places where you might not be able to go with your suitcase. Don’t hesitate and just do it. Suitcase traveling is a better option when traveling with children and people who do not want to move from one place to another. Moving around might cause stress for some people and if you are one of them, don’t do it.
Thailand offers multiple day trips to short distance locations and there are reliable travel kiosks in almost every street. Choose your adventures from there and the travel agency helps you to plan the best trip for you. Trips are not very expensive in there and if you go there today you can go on a trip tomorrow. This is easy and very stress-free.
You might need to use local transportations in Thailand. Be prepared and learn advance is my tip for you. Taxis and tuk-tuks might try to take more money first so bargain, bargain, bargain. You can negotiate with almost everything. Thai people or not in a rush, they don’t play with their minutes. So if you have appointed pickup then you might be prepared for waiting few extra minutes. The driver might come an hour late and that’s no big deal for them. So forget your watch at home and prepare to wait. The only thing you should make sure you’re at the airport at the right time. They won’t wait.
