Thailand Vacation: 10 Things To Know Before You Take Off


8. Power Conversion

Throughout Thailand, the standard outlet used is 220 volts, though some hotel properties (especially in Bangkok) are wired with the 110-volt outlets common throughout North America. Either way, it is a good idea to purchase a power converter so that you can use your own electronics like chargers and personal appliances without risking damaging them or even risking fire.

7. Visa Requirements

Generally, anyone entering Thailand will need to obtain a valid visa before hand. However the regulations are different depending on your country of origin. Some travelers are permitted to enter Thailand and stay for a period of up to 30 days as long as they are visiting for tourism purposes and have at least 6 months of validity remaining on their passport. To determine the regulations applicable to you and your passport, it’s best to visit the Thailand Immigration Bureau website.
