Thailand Travel FAQs

Do I need a visa to travel to Thailand?
US citizens do not need a visa to visit Thailand for 30 days or less. Check the visa requirements for more specific information.

Is tipping customary in Thailand?
Tipping around 10 percent with whatever change you might have is considered customary.

What is internet access like in Thailand?
Thailand's access to the internet is growing. Hotels and ships most likely will have WiFi, but it is not guaranteed. It's also not likely that you will have internet access in the rural parts of the country. There are cyber cafes where you can get access too in the bigger cities. Speed isn't always fast, and internet access is not usually free no matter where you go. 

Can I use my cell phone while in Thailand?
You can use your GSM-enabled phone in Thailand most easily if you ask your service provider to unlock it and then purchase a SIM chip when you arrive in Thailand. Alternatives would be asking your provider if there are long distance or international plans, or you could simply connect to WiFi when it's available.

Do I need power adapters?
Thailand has 220v power with Types A,B, and C outlets (US-style and Europe style). You won't likely need a power converter for most devices, but you may need a plug adapter.

What are the toilets like in Thailand?
In the more developed parts, and in hotels and ships, you'll probably have normal western style toilets. You might encounter squat toilets, which take some getting used to but are exactly what they sound like. No matter which ones you are using, you should toss the toilet paper in the waste basket next to the toilet rather than in the bowl itself. Bring your own toilet paper, just in case.

Can I drink the water in Thailand?
Drinking water in Thailand should either be purified or bottled, and you will always have access to it. However, you should only bathe with the tap water - and you should never drink water directly from the tap.

Are credit cards accepted in Thailand? Will I be able to find ATMs?
Most major credit cards are accepted throughout Thailand in the busy city areas and most stores and restaurants. Individual or smaller scale vendors and areas in rural Thailand might not accept credit cards. ATMs are similarly distributed.

Should I purchase travel insurance?
Definitely! It's always a good idea to have travel insurance just in case, and we have some excellent deals with TravelGuard. Find more information on the Once You're Booked page.
