Travelling King - Finance Planner turning holiday dreams into a reality!

Often called the “Land of Smiles,” Thailand is a southeast Asia country known for beautiful beaches, delicious cuisine and friendly locals. The capital city of Bangkok is a great jumping-off point for trips into the hills of northern Thailand, or any of the islands and beaches along the Gulf of Thailand or the Andaman Sea. 

QUICK THAILAND FACTS

Currency: Thai baht can be withdrawn from ATMs throughout Thailand, however keep in mind that smaller cities or towns may not have access to ATMs and its recommended to withdraw cash and take it with you.

Power Points: Most power points are the same as most other USA power points (2 circular prongs). I would recommend you take a Travel Adapter.

Official Language: The official language of Thailand is Thai.

Health: There are a number of insect-borne diseases and some health concerns in Thailand for travellers. I would recommend that you contact your doctor a few weeks before you travel as in some cases you need to start any medication a few days before your trip or you may need to get a vaccination. The tap water is not generally safe to drink, I would recommend only drinking bottled water.
