Thailand a land full of treasure and just awesome cultural and archaeological places. Coincidentally, the country also has some of the best beaches and fun activity packages of the world as well. So for those who want to do the whole tropical paradise get-away action, then Thailand would be one of the best places to go for. But since it is a foreign place, and if you have never been to south east asia, it will be alien like for a day or two. So here are some of the main things that you would need to know so that you do not end up doing something you regret.
Tuk-tuk experience is best left for day time
One of the more unique things of the South Asian and south East Asian world are the tuk-tuks. These are what people go for when they need to travel short distances and also enjoy viewing the country in a fresh perspective (because of the windowless doors of the open vehicle). The three wheel vehicle is a tourist attraction and one of the best ways to get around town and also see the country at its best. If you grab yourself an English speaking driver you can even get an introduction to the country and the best sightseeing spots.
Stand your ground when it comes to queues
Queues and lines are not formed when trying to buy something and you will generally just the crowd of people shoving each other to grab the hand of the vendor/ seller to get something. It might be quite the entertainment the first few times, so make sure to keep your feet spread apart and square your shoulders when you need to buy something along with the rest of the crowed.
Do not drag in politics into conversations
The king is not a topic that you want to talk about in the country so try not to drag in politics to any of the conversations that you have with the locals or other foreign friends. Contrary to popular belief, the locals will understand what you are saying.
Find your rent apartment quickly
If you plan on staying more than 30 days then you will need visas along with Pattaya apartments for rent monthly or anywhere you are spending the majority of time at. Make sure that you plan for this ahead of your visit to avoid any unpleasant scenarios. Dress conservatively to temples; even though it is a tourist attraction to you, it is not so for the local people who actually go there to pray. Eat your share of mangoes to fill you for a lifetime as Thailand’s mangoes are the most delicious and also cheapest when it comes to tropical food to enjoy.
