Know Before Visiting

  1. While Thailand is known for cheap, delicious street food, check out the mall food courts for cheap good eats in a climate-controlled environment. The prices and quality of food are similar to street food, but you get a/c and tables to sit at while eating your yummy finds. Learn how to use the food courts from this article.

  2. All ATMs have a withdrawal charge of about 200 baht in Thailand. Since you’ll need cash for the markets and street food, withdrawal fees can add up quickly. Bring cash to exchange when you get here, or take out a large lump sum to avoid paying the ATM fee multiple times. For more ideas on handling money in Thailand, check out this blog.

Electric: 220V/50Hz - Although most places have USA/EUR outlets and some have UK outlets.

Language: Thai


In Bangkok, you can use a mix of public transportation to get around. Taking a taxi may have you sitting in traffic for hours, but you can avoid the gridlock by taking the trains and subway. The airport line and underground (MRT) are very reasonably priced. The skytrain (BTS) is a little pricier, but still very affordable compared to western pricing.
