Entry requirements and Thailand visa
As a German citizen you need a valid passport, which is still valid for at least 6 months at entry. For trips to Thailand that do not last longer than 30 days, you do not need to apply for a visa in advance. If you want to stay longer in the country or if you want to work or stay for a longer period of time in Thailand, you have to inform yourself about the different visas.
Book hotels with best price guarantee
All-inclusive and full board are rather foreign words in Thailand, because nobody needs that. Experience Thailand outside your hotel. There you can also discover the most delicious food in the world. You can book your accommodation – no matter if it is a 5-star resort or a bed in a group dormitory – at the leading provider with best price guarantee!
Vaccination for Thailand
For the vacation in Thailand various tropical institutes recommend a suitable vaccination protection. This varies depending on which regions you want to travel to. If you travel to the touristy places, you don’t need to do much. However, if you want to “play it safe” or are traveling to the north and east, please inform yourself about the required vaccination protection for Thailand.
Packing list for Thailand vacation
Most things you can buy locally in Thailand at much lower prices than in Germany. To make sure you don’t forget anything important, you can download and print the packing list for your vacation in Thailand. Be sure to pack sunscreen, because it is very expensive in Thailand!
Money in Thailand
“No moss no go”, this is of course also true for a vacation in Thailand! You should inform yourself about the basics of money in Thailand, the Thai-Baht and the money supply on the spot. This can save you several hundred Euros, which you can spend much better on meaningful activities in Thailand!
Observe the rules of conduct!
You are flying to another country in remote Southeast Asia. The clocks there tick a little differently and you certainly do not intend to hurt religious feelings or to attract unpleasant attention. Therefore, please inform yourself briefly about some rules of conduct in Thailand.
Important phone numbers
Thailand is a very safe destination! Nevertheless, it can happen that you get into an unexpected emergency, you lose your passport or bank cards. Therefore, please note down important phone numbers or print them out conveniently!
Save money when comparing flights!
If you don’t have a flight yet, you should invest enough time in advance to compare prices. This can save you a lot of money. You can use the metasearch of ThaiFM in cooperation with SKYCHECK.
Cost of living
If you want to stay longer in Thailand and plan a long term vacation in the land of smiles, then you should take a look at the current cost of living in Thailand. This can also make sense for you as a normal vacationer, if you need price information for your budget planning.
With a little bit of time invested, you can quickly complete your travel preparation for your vacation in Thailand. If you still have questions, please let me know!
Have a nice vacation in Thailand. You will surely experience unforgettable and eventful moments that will remain in your memory for the rest of your life.
