PASSPORTS & VISAS
Passports must be valid for at least six months from the time of arrival.
Visas for tourism visits to Thailand are not normally required for stays of less than 30 days, except for nationals of certain Middle Eastern, African and South American countries. Visas may be required for onward travel to other Asian destinations.
Customs regulations are in line with those prevailing elsewhere in the world. However, the importation of prohibited items carries serious penalties. In particular the import of narcotics in Thailand is treated very seriously.
The local currency is the Baht and each Baht is divided into 100 satangs. Notes come in denominations of THB 1000, 500, 100, 50 and 20. Coins come in denominations of THB 10, 5, 1 and tiny satangs. Foreign currencies and traveller’s cheques are easily exchanged at banks, hotels or licensed money changers. All major credit cards are widely accepted.
Thailand enjoys a tropical climate with three distinct seasons: hot from April to mid-October (34°C to 38°C), fresh from January to April (28°C to 32°C), and rainy from mid-October to mid-December. The rainy season remains pleasant as there are plenty of sunny days during the monsoon.
Thai is the main language in Thailand. Other languages spoken are Malay, Chinese, Lao and Mon-Khmer. English is becoming more common, especially in government and commerce.
Special health certificates are generally not required but you should take advice from your medical practitioner or travel specialist.
Light, cool and casual clothing is recommended. Sweaters are needed during the cool season evenings or if visiting mountainous areas.
