If mosquitos favor you and your kids, prepare an anti-insect spray or cream to apply in advance. Prepare well for the first stay at new place, at night walk or when enjoying street food stalls. Ofcourse you can also buy this upon arrival.
* MUST HAVE: TRAVEL INSURANCE
It is not a thing to pack but Travel Insurance is essential for your trip to Thailand. Most of you may already purchase one along with airline tickets but it will not cover the whole trip. In fact, it will help you to get immediate support for luggage missing, have some serious health emergency or unexpected circumstances. World Nomads insurance is quite a common choice and easy to buy.
What should I NOT pack when travel to Thailand?
If you are a traditional book reader, then bring something you almost finish and be ready for some good exchanges in Thailand, in hotels and at cafés. Also, you can buy all the best books and freshly released publications here so save your space.
- Expensive jewelries or loads of cash
Leave your heavy accessories home and expose your skin to the warm sun instead of expensive jewelries for robbers. ATMs are everywhere and paying with cards is a common practice so you do not need to cash up regularly when in Thailand.
Your thick Levis jeans and skinny tights can stay home. They are surely heavy and inconvenient as you might have to suffer from the extreme heat and the humidity of Thailand’s tropical weather. We get the love for jeans (all our team wear jeans so often but we only suggest light denim, shorts or skirts here!)
- Sun lotion and toiletries (shampoo, soap, shaving cream, tooth paste, etc)
The service in Thailand is upgrading and decent in quality, even with homestays and hosted houses so worry not upon those personal items. The supply at hotel bathrooms would provide you well. Otherwise, you can always find any at a convenience store or supermarket as of Family Mart, Boots and Watsons, 7eleven and so on. For the skincare, we suggest you to try the nature products from local suppliers, for instance, coconut oil suntan, herbal toothpaste, fruity scented soap and honey body cream.
