Thailand: Thailand Travel Advice
There' s so much to see in Thailand - from busy towns and busy towns to breathtaking jungles and the many buddhistic wards. You will find animal torture around every nook and cranny away from the major touristic goals. Elephant babies were handcuffed and abandoned to death without nutrition and drinking because they cannot allow themselves to feed their harvests, caged and hid behind a tree and leave behind to perish.... for many Thai people living is of very little importance.
Also, the major touristic attractions of Elefant Trakking are cruelly with wounds to Elefanten and gruesome Manfouts, which hit the Elefanten, if they are too weary or ill or even too old to work. An elefant trail does not even take the elephant's seat and you will often see the elephant's legs cuffed together - very horrible and oppressive for the beast. so that you don't accidentally insult anyone on your journey in Thailand.
Pay attention not only to your manner but also to your legs - it is impolite to point them at someone and to respect the people. In order to give you an approximate impression of what to take with you when you travel in Thailand, you need to think about the following:
To trek in the jungles, you need stable shoes. Travelling adapters - if you bring electric appliances such as hair dryers or chargers to Thailand, they do not use the same connectors, so you need an adaptor.
Thailand: Personal safety information
All in all, Thailand is a secure and traveling state..... In the same way that you must be conscious of your environment and your own privacy when travelling in your home countries, you must also keep your mind in Thailand. Below you will find the best advices regarding many issues of your own protection to consider during your stay in the Kingdom.
If your own protection is at stake, the "precautions of good sense" are still the top priority - as everywhere else. The first time you enter your room, make a rapid screening. Does the deadbolt locking system or the locking system work? You know where and how far the fire exits are?
You should always keep your passport, currency, cameras, etc. in the room vault or in the security deposit boxes normally available at the front desk of the hotels. Always keep your doors closed and use the spyhole and security string before opening the doors for anyone.
The majority of establishments provide visiting greetings in Thai and English. When your accommodation only has tickets in English, ask a representative to put your name, adress and telephone numbers in Thai on a map for you. Never put yourself in a situation where you cannot be seen or listened to by others when an incident occurs or you need help.
Nudity and nakedness and topless swimming are scorned in Thailand, and a shortage of humility could unfortunately be misunderstood by others as an explanation of your own morals and intent - be conscious of your clothes. The majority of Thailand's unprotected beach areas. Don't ever subordinate the force of the Thailand sun.
Stay moisturized at all time, bottle tap cleanliner is available everywhere, it's cool and inexpensive. Once you have settled into your accommodation, go directly to a Seven Eleven shop and fill up the tub. The Bangkok taxi service is very secure and operates 24/7.
Don't take cabs that park at a hotel or touristic attraction, there are so many that it is much better to stop a cab by. Hint for women: If you have to take a cab home yourself in the evening, a woman member of the Thais gave the following advice: "Don't dress too sexily, thai men like to look at us foreigner, so just dress modestly.
It is part of the Thai tradition to try a tuk-tuk at least once, but it is usually best to try to stay away from it as the main means of transport. When using a tuk-tuk, unlike a cab, you must first arrange the price of the ticket to your final destinations and not settle it before your secure check-in.
It is a good notion to get some "emergency food", especially for kids. There is much to be learned when you observe the Thais, they are often very discrete when they reach for their money, almost to the point of secrecy. If you ride a motorcycle or in the back seat of Songthaews, the chain should be well stored in your clothes, or better still, in your room.
That' s not unusual, in bustling areas it is random - Thais are just as likely to be the casualties of this kind of thievery. There' s cheating in Thailand like in any other state. Aside from never really know what you are actually taking, you should seriously consider the option that any drug offer might actually be a covert policing action.
It is the police's responsibility to arrange for Urinanalysis, the results of which can be used as proof against you in any subsequent prosecutions and serve as a foundation for your detention for incrimination. It' s not unheard of that the Royal Thai Patrol carries out "raids" in pubs and nightclubs where "party drugs" are supposed, and orders without exceptions that all guests - both Thai and foreign - are subjected to massive searching and demonstrations.
Records of police corruption use any amount of drugged visitors as a means of extorting large amounts of cash in barter for their release without question. Whilst Thailand is the land of smiles, you should be really careful with anyone who comes out of the clear sky, regardless of nationalities.
Thais can be very supportive and courteous, but it is not a common practice in Thailand to come near a stranger and provide unasked help or counsel. Although it is widespread by statute, with the exceptions of the state lottery and casual horse racing in Thailand, all forms of gaming are unlawful.
Many cases, Muay Thai boxes and films selling through informal media are void and/or fake. Be always conscious of your environment and pay attention to how you would describe your precise position in an emergenciesituation. Write down the general telephone number of the Thai Tourist Police, which is 1155, and enter it in your speed-dialist.
Thai Tourism Policing is a dedicated branch of the National Royal Thai Policing Service and has been specially educated to handle everyday life in which a non-resident visitor is involved. Apparently, the avoidance of poorly illuminated and apparently unpopulated areas is good practice in the area. Remain in well-lit areas where there are many in number.
Consular support and embassy: It' a good way to get acquainted with the contacts of the embassy or embassy of your home state. Please refer to the emergencies after work contacts. A few instances of where this call goes are: AUSTRALIA: Call the embassy at 02 344 6300 and choose Route 1 to be forwarded to the 24-hour Consular Operations Centre at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in Canberra, Australia.
UK: In the case of a deadly or deathly consensual crisis, call the telephone exchange on 02 305 8333. These include hospitalization in an emergencies, losing your visa, being arrested or suffering serious injuries. Please take a moment to record your itineraries so that your location and contacts are known in the case of a disaster, accident, etc.
It is a free and volunteer tool and is only intended to help you in an emergencies. Wear your passport: There is a legal requirement that Thailand's nationals AND all guests must always have a valid ID card with them. It must be produced at the request of a police officer or other lawful government official.
Note: It is not always secure, convenient or appropriate to always have your pass with you. Think about whether you should keep your pass in your room safe or in the main safety-deposit box at the front door while you are at any location. Make several copies of your photograph/detail page as well as the postmarked arrival ticket, which is attached to your pass, which you got when you entered Thailand.
They will help you determine your ID and immigrant credentials if you do not have your ID card with you. In many cases, if you present this to an officer, if necessary, it will meet or at least be sufficient to allow your real pass to be picked up at your place of work.
We NEVER recommend that you hand in your pass when renting a car or similar. So if a company like a rent a bike is not willing to take a copy of your pass, go ahead and try someone else. All hotels will take a copy of your residency card at check-in and make a record of the particulars of your visas.
Keep in mind that the most important thing you have abroad is your password - keep it safe. In Bangkok, if you wish to apply for a permit for other regional destinations such as Vietnam, you will need to leave your identity card for a one or two days while your permit is being processed.
Passports should ONLY be handed over directly to embassy personnel or through a serious representative, if not in Bangkok. In any case, you should ask for a voucher for your pass and make a record of its number. Thailand is a funny place with a lot to see and do and most visitors come and have a great tour.
