      With a tropical monsoon climate, Bangkok's high season (November to March) is arguably the best time of the year to visit as the weather is relatively cool and dry. The months of March, April and May are the hottest.


      Bangkok is seven hours ahead of UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).

    • HEALTH

      Few travellers experience anything more than an upset stomach. Vaccinations are recommended - especially for those planning on trekking or passing through the more remote areas - but are not a must. Avoid drinking the tap water to ensure you don’t get sick. Make sure you stock up on bottled water.

      If you do have a problem, Bangkok has some very good hospitals and clinics.

    • SAFETY

      Bangkok is a relatively safe place. Muggings and other forms of direct confrontation are uncommon. A bigger crime problem is pick-pocketing in crowds. Always be aware of your belongings in crowded areas.

      The most likely criminal behaviour you might encounter in Bangkok is retail scams, where touts may try to sell you something which is of far less value than what you paid for it.

    • PEOPLE

      Thailand is also known as the Land of Smiles. The warm smiles, hospitality and friendliness of the Thai people are a big reason why travelers keep coming back.


      The official language of Bangkok is Thai and it is widely spoken throughout Thailand. Most of the people also understand and speak English, but this is more in the main city and the tourist areas.


      Bangkok’s culture is contemporary, yet still retains links to its tradition and Buddhist spirituality. Nearly 94% of Thailand is Buddhist. It also has rich traditions in art forms such as music, art and dance.

    • FOOD

      Bangkok is one of the premier cities for world-class cuisine. In addition to thousands of outstanding Thai restaurants from five-star to street stalls, Bangkok features the entire spectrum of international cuisines, a by-product of its cosmopolitan population. Upscale food courts in many shopping plazas provide visitors with a wide selection of outstanding restaurants, and most hotels feature at least one Thai and one international dining establishment.

    • LIQUOR

      Bangkok has a diverse offering of drinking options, with some great bars and pubs.


      While Thais are generally very forgiving of cultural infractions by tourists, some rules which you can abide by out of courtesy include: Not touching someone’s head, not pointing your feet at someone, do not sit in a way that would show the bottom of your feet, do not point, do not disrespect images of the Thai king in any way. Do use your right hand to pass objects to someone, eat with a spoon and do show respect to monks.


      Bangkok is served by multiple modes of transport. However, traffic jams are commonplace. Other forms of transport include trains, motorcycles and tuk-tuk (motorized rickshaws).


      Operating hours of establishments vary. The following is a rough guide.

      Government organizations: Monday – Friday at 08.30 am – 04.30 pm.
      Private companies:  Monday – Friday at 08.30 am – 05.30 pm. Some open on Saturdays.
      Banks: Monday – Friday from 08.30 am – 03.30 pm
      Department stores: 10 am – 10 pm


      The Thai baht is used in Bangkok.


      Major credit cards are accepted across Thailand in most major hotels and large restaurants. However, by and large, cash is king. Smaller businesses will expect to be paid in cash, as will taxi drivers.


      Tipping in hotels is not expected, but again is always appreciated, for instance 20 - 50 baht for the porter that carried your bags up to your room, or 20 baht left under your pillow for the cleaner. In all restaurants it is customary to leave behind any loose change in coins as a tip.


      Do snap away at the colourful sights you will enjoy. However, exercise discretion and check before taking photos at certain places like temples.


      Bangkok uses 220 AC volt electricity. There is unfortunately no specific standard for plugs and outlets. The most common plug type is the two flat-pronged North American type but round prongs are also seen.


      Thailand enjoys a dynamic and diversified media scene and some observers have sometimes described Thai media as relatively free compared to other Southeast Asian nations. It has over 30 daily and bi-weekly newspapers, two of which are published in English (Bangkok Post and The Nation). Television is by far the most popular medium in Thailand. Almost 80 percent of Thais are estimated to rely on television as their primary source of news.


      Many free Wifi spots are available around Bangkok.
