There is much for you to discover in Thailand

Packing for the Trip to Thailand

Pack light. Clothing for 4-5 days is sufficient, as inexpensive laundry services are widely available in tourist areas. Bring light clothing that is easy to wash and iron. Sandals and light shoes are adequate leave at home heavy hiking boots unless you plan some serious walking. A sweater is handy for cool season nights and drastically air-conditioned buildings. Top hotel restaurants usually require a tie, sometimes a jacket.

Women take note: Sanitary napkins are far more common in Thailand than tampons. If you really prefer tampons, it is best to bring your own. If you are on prescription medicine, bring adequate supplies. Ask your doctor for alternate names of the drugs you are taking.
