Thailand Travel Blog

Thailand might just be our favorite Asian country to visit. Thailand is a great destination for either couples, friends or for families. You can read all our best posts in the Thailand travel blog section below.

Thailand Travel Basics

WiFi Availability: Whilst you can find free WiFi in Thailand, we found that the speed and connection were often unreliable.

Sim cards in Thailand are really affordable, so I suggest you pick one up from the airport so that you are always connected. You can even buy a Sim Card online and simply pick it up to keep things easy.

Airports: There are many international airports in Thailand.  The busiest of which is probably Bangkok, Krabi, Chang Rai and Phuket.

To save time on your holiday, make sure you choose to fly in and out of the airport that is located closest to your holiday destinations. You can find a list of all the airports in Thailand here.

Visa Required: Most tourists traveling to Thailand will not need a visa, however, the following 21 countries will need to acquire a visa on arrival - Andorra, Bulgaria, Bhutan, China, Cyprus, Ethiopia, Fiji, India, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Maldives, Malta, Mauritius, Papua New Guinea, Romania, San Marino, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Ukraine & Uzbekistan.

International Driver’s License Accepted? It is always a good idea to have an international driver's license with you, but have never been asked to show one and could even rent a car without having to show proof of one.

Is it Safe? Thailand is a safe country to visit. But as is typical in Asian countries it is recommended to keep an eye out for scams. Also important to be aware of drink-spiking in the bars of 'dodgy' places in Thailand, such as Bangla road in Phuket.

Thailand with Kids

Sunrise Beach Koh Lipe Thailand

A Thailand trip with kids is always a good idea.

Thailand is an easy country to travel with kids. The Thai people are super welcoming to kids, English is pretty widely spoken and you can find supplies for babies or toddler in the larger supermarkets.

We visited Thailand for 3 weeks with our 2-year-old, so whipped up a video that you can watch about how to travel in Thailand with a baby/toddler.

There is a wide range of family hotels in Thailand; plenty of which offer excellent pool facilities and kids club options.

Thailand Hotel Reviews and Accommodation Guides

Plan Your Trip to Thailand

Accommodation in Thailand: We always start our accommodation research with Hotelscombined.  This site makes it super easy to compare accommodation across various booking engines so that you can simply pick the best price for the accommodation of your choice.

We also often book through sites such as Airbnb, especially when we travel in Europe as it allows for massive savings on accommodation.  Click to grab a coupon for your first stay!

Flights to Thailand: We personally book our flights on Cheapo Air, we find that they are often the cheapest (even in comparison to Skyscanner).  Click to check on prices for your flights.

Travel Insurance: We never travel without travel insurance with World Nomads. We have claimed on our travel insurance more than once, claims that would have cost us A LOT out of our own pockets.  Don’t skimp out on insurance!!

World Nomads offers incredible plans and is one of the few insurance companies that allow you to grab insurance when you are already travelling!  Click to check on their plans and prices.
