To make the most of your stay at one of our apartments in Bangkok Thailand, here are some general tips to ensure you’re informed of everything you need to know when traveling to Bangkok.
Visa Requirements: To apply for a visa, a foreign national must possess a passport or travel document which is valid for at least six months. Generally, a foreign citizen who wishes to enter the Kingdom of Thailand is required to obtain a visa from a Royal Thai Embassy or Consulate. However, nationals of certain countries do not require a visa if they meet exemption requirements, or may apply for visa on arrival. For more information on visa requirements please visit the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ website: http://www.mfa.go.th/web/2637.php .
Currency: Thai Baht (THB) – credit cards and traveller’s cheques accepted at most banks
Electricity: 220V/50Hz with 3-hole/flat 2-pin plug
Climate: There are three seasons in Thailand: summer (from February until May) – average temperature 28.6ºC, rainy season (from May until October) – 27.8ºC, and winter (from October until February) – 25.4ºC.
- International dialing: 001 + country code + number

- Banks: Open weekdays from 8.30 am to 3.30 pm. Sub-branches open evenings and weekends in major department stores and Chatuchak
- Government Offices: Open weekdays from 8.30am to 4.30pm
- Retail outlets: Open generally every day from 10.00am to 9.00pm. Most convenience stores are open 24 hours a day.
Transportation: Apart from the BTS skytrain, there is also the MRT subway, which interchanges with the BTS at Asoke/Sukhumvit, Sala Daeng/Silom and Mo Chit/Chatuchak Park stations. Metered taxis are reasonably priced, though it is helpful to have your address written in Thai as many drivers do not speak English or other languages. There is also the much endeared tuktuk which is not metered.
Gratuity: Tipping is not expected in most simple street-side food shops, but is increasingly more common in established restaurants. In cases where a 10% service charge is not added to the total, a tip of 10% is considered reasonable. Taxi fares should be rounded up to the nearest 5 Baht.
VAT: Goods purchased from established retailers in Thailand include 7% VAT. However, if you are visiting for less than 180 days per calendar year and leave Thailand by plane, you can claim a VAT refund at the airport upon departure.
- Malls: The Emporium, Gaysorn Plaza, CentralWorld, Siam Paragon
- Markets: Chatuchak, Siam Square, Platinum (air conditioned), Damnoen Saduak Floating Market (80km outside Bangkok)
