A few questions answered in this book: - How to save money booking hotel rooms in Thailand - Popular Thai Scams that you must be aware of - Advice about sex in Thailand - How to safely attain drugs in Thailand - Is the water safe to drink - and much more… What makes me qualified to write this book? Well, besides living in Thailand for the last 4 years, I also created and currently manage the popular Thailand travel website: www.KingsofThailand.com This website is designed to offer free information to make sure your time in Thailand will be FUN, SAFE, and MEMORABLE! 25 THINGS YOU “MUST” KNOW BEFORE TRAVELING TO THAILAND Tip 1- Bring Your Own Condoms Almost every foreigner complains about the condoms in Thailand. They are small and far too thick. Double your pleasure by bringing your own condoms. We recommend Trojans. Tip 2- Thai Currency The money currency in Thailand is known as the Thai Baht. The standard exchange rate is around 30 Baht to one United States dollar. Tip 3- ATM Access There are ATMs everywhere in Thailand. So accessing your money is very easy. All the ATM’s have the same fee of 150 baht (5usd). Tip 4- Language Barrier You do not need speak Thai to visit Thailand. Almost everyone you meet with have a basic understanding of English. Tip 5- GoGo Bars GoGo Bars are strip clubs. Unlike in western countries, in Thai GoGo bars the girls are available for sex. The three most popular Redlight Districts in Bangkok filled with GoGo bars are: Nana Plaza, Soi Cowboy, and Patpong Road. Tip 6- Thai Food If you aren’t familiar with Thai food, you can never go wrong with ordering: chicken fried rice, chicken pad thai, or Pad Krapow Gai (chicken made with basil and rice). Three great meals which can normally be found for under 2usd. Tip 7- Spicy Food Traditional Thai food can be quite spicy. When you order your food, be sure to say, “not spicy.” Tip 8- Cheapest Hotel Prices Nine out of ten times, you will receive the cheapest hotel prices by booking your hotel through http://www.Agoda.com Tip 9- Ladyboys Around tourist hotspots, you will probably see Thai ladyboys. Protect yourself from the classic Hangover 2 mistake by memorizing this article: http://www.kingsofthailand.com/the-thailand-lady-boy-survival-guide-never-betricked-by-a-ladyboy/ Tip 10- Safety It’s very safe for a foreigner to travel to Thailand. Robberies and other kinds of crime found when traveling to third world countries are virtually non-existent in Thailand. Tip 11- Taxi Advice Some taxis in Bangkok will try to overcharge you by trying to charge a flat fee based on your destination. Do not accept this, all taxis are based on a taxi meter system which is very inexpensive. You can get to most places within Bangkok for under 4usd. Tip 12- Tuk Tuk Scams A tuk tuk is a three-wheeled open-aired vehicle. They are a fun option for an adventurous taxi ride. However, a common scam is when the driver will offer you a free taxi ride if visit their brother who owns a suit making shop. Don’t agree to this, the shop is filled with high pressure salesmen charging 3 times the standard prices. Tip 13- Massage In Thailand you can get a very professional massage for 6 – 9usd an hour. One tip, the best massages usually come from the women between the ages of 30 to 50 years old. However, the sexy women in their 20’s can be far more fun :) Tip 14- Drugs A common mistake tourists make is buying drugs from Thai men in tourist areas like “Khao San Road” in Bangkok. Then to find out that the Thai man is a police officer. Now the tourist is faced with the choice of $3,000 fee or Thai prison. If you want drugs in Thailand, get it from “Thai girls”. Go to a bar with bar girls or strippers, find a girl that you like, and tell her you want to party. She can arrange anything you want. The three most common drugs in Thailand are: Marijuana, Cocaine (low quality), and Ice (meth). Tip 15- Bottled Water Only drink bottled water in Thailand. Never drink the water from the faucet in your room. Tip 16- Ice The ice used in every restaurant in Thailand is safe. So don’t be afraid to have ice with your cola. Tip 17- Prostitution Prostitution is acceptable in Thailand. Read this article to find out the standard prices for Thai Hookers: http://www.kingsofthailand.com/how-much-does-ahooker-cost-in-thailand/ Tip 18- Tipping Tipping in Thailand is not the same as in western country. After you pay your bill, it’s common only to leave the remaining coins or a 20 baht note. Most of the time your tip will not exceed 1usd. Tip 19- School Girls If you love sexy Asian school girls, make sure she is in university, not high school. One simple tip about Thai school girl uniforms: University school girls wear black skirts while high school girls wear blue skirts. Tip 20- Get a Thai Phone Number Buy a Thai Sim card so you can make phone calls within Thailand without outrageous international calling fees. The cost of a Thai Sim card is between 1 – 3usd and can be bought at any mobile phone store, shopping mall, or most 7 elevens. I recommend using the company DTAC. If your phone is not unlocked or does not have an option of a Sim card, buy a cheap phone in Thailand. A basic phone costs about 20 – 30 dollars. You won’t regret it. Tip 21- Bangkok Hotel Placement When you stay in Bangkok, you’ll want your hotel’s location to be in the most fun area of Bangkok. Between Sukhumvit Soi 1 and Sukhumvit Soi 30. Tip 22- Age of Consent The age of consent is 18 years old in Thailand. Never go younger. Tip 23- Negotiate Nearly everything is negotiable in Thailand. This goes for shopping and women alike. Never accept the first price offered. Tip 24- Sex Fact Thai women who are 30 years of age or older, tend to fuck better. However, sometimes it’s more fun to take a 19 year old. Tip 25- Tailor Get a suit or a few nice dress shirts made in Thailand. You’ll be surprised how much better you look when you wear nice clothes specially tailored to your body. Good quality suits can be made for 150usd while a nice dress shirt can be made for 20usd.
