Advice for trips to Thailand

So you've secured your Thailand travel insurance, and you're ready to go. Here's a few of our top tips on places to stay and things to do when you touch base in Thailand:


Thailand is well-known as being one of the most affordable holiday destinations in the world, and this is certainly true when it comes to food and accommodation costs.

Just how much you want to spend on accommodation is really down to you. Depending on when you decide to go, it's possible to get some great deals on accommodation. If you're travelling on a budget, a private room in a Bangkok hostel can cost as little as £6 per night. These prices however, aren't always advised online and it's only possible to get rooms this cheap by being in the city and booking in person. For this reason, a lot of travellers prefer to book only a couple of nights accommodation in advance, and then find these cheap deals on rooms after they have arrived in Thailand.

If you'd prefer to treat yourself to a more luxurious experience, then it's possible to find deals on rooms in 5-star hotels, often for as little as £60 per night during the off season.

Currency in Thailand

Thailand trades in the Thai baht. The country is inexpensive to visit thanks to advantageous foreign currency exchanges, but you should still shop around for the best rate in advance.


The World Health Organisation recommends a variety of vaccinations for travel to Thailand, including Typhoid and Rabies. Consult with your GP before travelling to ensure that you have all the inoculations that you need.
