Not only data, because you’ll need it to make phone calls to contact tour agencies or hotels.
You can use it with hotels, agencies, etc.
Just configure your credit card and voilá. You can use it with different business.
Otherwise, they won’t have enough change and you’ll have to run to 7Eleven and buy something.
Chances are it not going to be good and it will be too expensive.
Even if it looks like it’s only vegetables.
And you can find them in every city. Some of them start at the market where you can buy all the ingredients you need.
For example, booking a transfer. Make sure they give you information about the connections and waiting time. Sometimes booking a taxi could be cheaper and faster.
This is specialy true to travel from Bangkok to Chiang Main. You can use Thai Railway (not the best UX) or 12GoAsia. 12GoAsia is reliable but you don’t want to deal with refunds or change of itineray.
If you used 12GoAsia, you must pick up the ticket at the Parcel office at the Bangkok station. It’s a small office just behind the ticket office. Remember to take off your shoes before entering and be there at least one hour before departure. If you buy the tickets directly with Thai Railway, you will be able to download and print them. No need to pick it up in person.
Traffic jam in Bangkok is truly chaotic. The train is a really good option, it’s comfortable, it has A/C, it’s clean, cheap and fast. The price depends on how far you ride.
12. Recommended massage at Healing In Thai Massage & Beauty
They give you cold water once you arrive and hot tea after your massage <3
The lights are by your side and stay on all night. The curtains will not cover the light. Also, you have no window to observe the landscape.
No one will wake you up in the morning, but you will start to hear people moving around.
Train from Chumphon to Bangkok doesn’t have it
It’s a long drive, so go early in the morning or plan to spend the night in Pai. Take warm clothes if you go on a scooter because it will be cold.
They offer a fun tour full of activities such as feeding the elephants, taking baths with them and spending a mud-filled spa day. It’s a lot of fun and highly recommended, but half a day is more than enough.
If you plan to go, I recommend being there at least 30 minutes before sunrise. It will get crowded and you will need some time to find a place where you can enjoy the magical view. Bungalows and tent sites are available to reserve one or two nights directly at the view point.
Follow this directions and visit Mama Sue, she’ll take care of you.
The flights always make a stopover in Bangkok.
It’s fun and huge. It completely changes the city. During the day it is not so crowded and the main attractions are the temples, but at night it is a different place, you won’t recognize it.
In my experience, most of the tour includes photography. Not always with the best camera or camarographer 😅, but at least you don’t have to worry about taking pictures and just enjoy your activity.
At the airport you can find other people who also wants to go to Kho Lanta o Kho PhiPhi.
Kho Lanta is a quite island. The best way to move around is by scooter. Watch out for monkeys on the way!
The Mu Ko Lanta National Park offers a quite unique trail. I recommend starting from the entrance at the parking lot and then you’ll end up at the beach <3 Bring your swimsuit!
You’ll find many small agencies around the old town.
Great place to snorkel and observe the monkeys running around the island. You can rent a kayak or a taxi-boat in Phi Phi and go there. It would take around 15 min by kayak.
You can find coral gardens everywhere and a lot of agencies where you can book a tour.
Crystal clear water and reefs everywhere make it perfect to snorkel and see colorful fish.
Highly recommend Thai food, well located and still cheap. You can find it here
Just be aware of the schedule and ask at the counter, the boards are not always up to date.
They say is cheaper than Krabi and Railay beach, and it probably is, but still feels quite expensive. Food around 150 THB a plate.
It might be only true for me because I’m not in a good shape. This place is just wonderful but half-day was enough for my arms. There are a ton of routes. A guide is recommended but you can get a map with the routes to do it on your own.
The tour includes a one hour trek that is really nice and refreshing.
Extremely adorable. Make sure you close the door of your room or they will enter.
I loved this place and the food there is mouth watering.
Just take a bus to Surat Thani and from here a Night ferry to Kho Tao which departs at 23:00 Our Jungle Camp - Eco resort booked everything for us.
While you wait for the ferry you can take a walk and enjoy a more local street market.
And it’s more comfortable than the night train; however, the engine is very loud the entire night. I was still able to sleep.
Make sure you mail and/or call them and get a confirmation. You can also take a taxi from the pier but it’s too expensive, 500 THB!
It’s a small island and the best way to move around is with a scooter. Also, it was quite cheap, no more than 300 THB.
I spent the entire afternoon there. It’s inside a resort but you can park inside and pay a small fee to enter. There are two restaurants at the beach. Heads up, the one inside the resort is expensive.
They offer 5 stops and the first 2 are extremely fun. After that, you might get dizzy and tired. Make sure to save some energy for the last stop, which is Shark Bay. Let’s cross our fingers for some shark sightings.
The night train to Bangkok is very similar to the one that goes to Chiang Mai. Just a bit smaller.
It’s open until midnight.
It’s 5min walking distance from the train station.
