While travelling in Thailand wear clothes that cover legs and shoulders while visiting palaces and Wats as the Thai are very particular about dressing modestly at these places. Try getting information about places in advance and don’t fall prey for tuk-tuk scams as they tell you that a temple or palace is closed and take you for a ride. Always fix the price before sitting in a tuk-tuk or taxi. Carry clothes that are light and dry easily. Carry some basic medications and also your sunblock and insect repellent. Try the noodles and curries at the stall in street markets. They are cheap and tasty. Keep your wallet and things safe. Always carry a copy of your passport with you.
