Budget airlines

Whether you’re on a tight budget or looking for more luxurious air travel, you’ll be happy to find a number of different budget airlines in Thailand. Flights from the US arrive at Suvarnabhumi International Airport (BKK), the country’s main hub. Singapore Airlines flies to Chiang Mai and Phuket City, both of which have more than two flights a day. Depending on the time of year, flights to both cities may cost anywhere from $70 to $100.

Hostel life

While in Thailand, you can experience the fun and social aspects of hostel life. The hostel is clean, modern, and decorated with great attention to detail. There is a great cafe on site serving excellent Thai food and delicious breakfast. There is also a comfortable lounge where you can meet other travelers and share stories. There are male and female-only dorms, as well as private double rooms. Beds are wider than normal and there is ample room to fit your luggage.

Getting around

Getting around Thailand is relatively easy, thanks to a great transport system. Public buses, private minibuses and coaches are common forms of transportation. Public buses run along most major roads, while private buses are generally aimed at tourists. They usually connect major cities, tourist sites, and beaches. If you are travelling long distances, consider hiring a taxi. Alternatively, rent a car or bike, depending on your personal needs and budget.

Visiting the border towns

The most exciting thing about traveling to the border towns of Thailand is the chance to see a country that you’ve probably never heard of. In Mae Sot, for example, you can explore the ancient city walls of the early Mon settlers. During the day, you can explore the market and buy souvenirs, but at night, you may have to wait in long lines. But, you can’t miss the eerie, mysterious atmosphere of this town.

Getting vaccinated

While travel insurance is important in Thailand, some diseases are also present in certain parts. Some of the diseases are extinct in Europe, and getting vaccinated for Thailand will ensure you’ll be protected. You should consult a doctor six weeks before you travel to determine what vaccinations you may need to ensure that you’ll stay safe while visiting Thailand. You should also consider taking anti-malaria drugs, such as Isoniazid or chloroquine.
