Clothes – There’s a common mistake people make when traveling in different cultures or countries, they usually bring a lot of clothes.

Food – When it comes to food everybody will tell you not to buy and eat things from street vendors. However, you might lose the true experience of Asian culture and cuisine so take a chance and buy something on the street. Another idea would be to befriend locals and ask them to take you to their favorite eating place. Besides street food, you should also check out the high standard restaurants if you can afford, you will be amazed with all the great food Thailand has to offer. The only problem might be with the tap water, which should be avoided if you don’t want to feel ill. It is advised to use bottled water even when brushing your teeth.
Communication – When going to Thailand all you need to buy is a phone card that you will be using there if you want to talk on the phone with the best rates.
