Tips to visit Thailand

phuketHere you are some tips for an unforgettable trip to Thailand. First of all we are going to see when is the best period to organize a trip to Thailand: in general from November to February is the right choice as the climate is dry and quite hot. Best to avoid months from June to October as Thailand is in the full of rainy season. From March to May there is lots of heat and humidity, while September is the wettest month of the year.

One of the best tips we can give you is to leave your country without a filled luggage. In this asiatic country you will find many cheap deals on clothing and accessories, even typical stuffs, so the temptation to buy something to bring back with you (or to give as a present to parents and relatives) is quite hard. The only things you need inside your luggage are cotton clothing, some long-sleeved shirt (during the night temperatures can go under 20°C), closed-toe shoes and comfortable sandals. Plus important are mosquito repellents, medicines to take in case of emergency, sunglasses, hat and sunscreen.

If you are planning a holiday also to move inside the country, then you can use local public transport, such as trains and buses, as they are efficient and comfortable. Alternatively, is possible to go by taxi or to rent a bicycle.

Remember that Thailand is a Buddhists country, so is always important to show respect for their religion. In temple visits is required to keep a good behavior and dress properly. Be also aware that disrespectful attitudes towards the royal family can easily give many legal problems, such as be jailed.

At the end some practical advice: to enter Thailand is needed to have a valid passport (ask your local authorities which particular requirements are needed). Is also recommended following vaccinations: hepatitis A, hepatitis B, tetanus, diphtheria, rabies, typhoid fever and Japanese encephalitis. Also remember to drink only bottled water.
