Transport (rental car ...or other)

Rental Car (or other)

In Thailand we didn’t book a rental car. We bought, instead, a package tour from the tourist agency Krabi konnect,which we adjusted to the time we had available
For all our transportations we used a chartered air-conditioned taxi

We chose hotels of our preference in each city.


Transport
The roads in Thailand, at all the places we visited near the cities, were in a very good condition.


Petrol Prices

Climate- weather (luggage)

Best Season  

Best season for a journey to Thailand

 


Proper clothing

Prefer light clothes that can be worn in layers and comfortable flat shoes

You will definitely need waterproof and windproof jackets.

If you travel with a rental car, things are much easier, since you have your luggage with you all along.

 

Foreign exchange

In Thailand, you may exchange money in the airport, in currency exchange offices or at cash machines. Credit cards are used everywhere.

Equivalence USA Dollar - Thai Baht (THB)

1 USD = 32.6415 THB

You may check prices here.

 

Contacting your Embassy

You must always have with you detailed information, as far as contacting the Embassy of your own country.  

 

Travel insurance

We always have travel insurance before each journey, with Mondial Assistance which offers support and assistance to travellers all over the world, through my friend Antonia in Alphaplan Travel Services
