Research about the weather before travelling – This is probably one of the most important things to keep in mind before planning your trip. You don’t want to end up on your first trip to Thailand and be stuck indoors while it rains cats and dogs there. November to April is the best time to visit the country as it is dry during those months and best time to do island hopping!
Do NOT drink the tap water – You may think this is not an important but believe us this is something you need to keep in mind at all times on your first trip to Thailand. Tap water in the country is definitely not safe to drink. Instead buy a reusable bottle fill them up at water dispensers in your hotel or any restaurant. The dispensers only cost a couple of Baht!
When in Bangkok, ditch the car – Driving in Bangkok is not advisable for first time travelers. This is because the traffic is unpredictable there and several accidents happen on daily basis. Only drivers familiar with the driving patterns of the local people should be allowed to drive on the roads of Bangkok!
Street food is always fresh – Unlike others places, Thailand is known for the delicious street food. You do not have to worry about the food on the street giving you a bad tummy. These are always fresh and prepared right in front of you!
Respect the culture – Thailand is known for their culture, temples and traditions. Packing correct attire for temple visits should be something you remember to do. It is also frowned up to shout in public.
