Check out this easy guide created by Escape Route to help you tick the list of items in your bag pack for Thailand:

  • Slip on Shoes: You have to take your shoes off frequently in Thailand — not just for entering someone’s house or a temple, but also to go into a cafe, restaurant, shop, or massage parlor
  • Water Bottle: You can refill water bottles with filtered water for just a few cents in Thailand
  • Basic necessity toiletries
  • Flip flops for the beach time
  • Sunglasses
  • Bug / mosquito Spray & Sunscreen
  • Rain Jacket: even outside of the rainy season, which runs from May – October, there’s always potential for rain in Bangkok
  • One sweatshirt for the AC rides
  • Warm Weather Clothes
  • A Sturdy Daypack to carry around essentials – make sure it is sturdy enough to save from the bike ridden bag snatchers
  • Bathing Suit & Sarong and Quick Dry Towel for the quick dip
  • Hiking Shoes
  • Multi-plug / Converter
  • Do not forget to pack loads of smile and swag

More importantly, despite the public opinion, the native families of Thailand are very reserved. Greet everyone with smile, do not touch people on head, it is disrespectful and “Sawadee Kha” is followed by a slight bow of head like Namasate in India.

1 Thai baht equals approx. 1.88 INR
