Thailand is a wonderful country; The friendly door to Asian exoticism. It has good tourist infrastructure, many interesting things to see, great beaches, good gastronomy, historical ruins, jungle mountains, large luxury hotels at a reasonable price, cheap accommodation for backpackers and friendly people who always seem to be smiling. Here is Thailand travel guide ten recommendations in case you dare to visit it:

1. Take money from ATMs
You don't need to carry large sums of cash. There are many ATMs throughout the country, including the most touristy islands, where you can withdraw funds with your credit card. They charge a fixed commission of 150 baht ($3.7) for each provision.

2. Use the Skytrain in Bangkok
Bangkok traffic is devilish. If you get in a taxi or a tuk-tuk at certain times you can leave half a day and a half VISA in the effort. The airway (Skytrain) is comfortable, safe, reliable and cheap. And it also has air conditioning. It is the best way to get around the city. You pay with coins but they change you in the seasons.

3. Eye to the monsoons
If you are looking for a beach, keep in mind the monsoon seasons. In the Andaman Sea (Pukhet, Phi Phi Island, Krabi) the monsoon coincides with summer in Spain: July and August. That there is a bump does not mean that it is raining all day, but you can find a whole week of cloudy skies and the sea is choppy and dark; Nothing to do with the idyllic image of Paradise beaches.

4. Overrated Phi Phi Islands
The Phi Phi islands are very crowded and overrated, like the entire Pukhet area. If you are looking for quieter beaches and resorts it is better to go to areas of the coast of the province of Krabi, such as Koh Lanta or Hat Railay. The less known archipelago and less invaded by the tourism I know is Koh Tarutao, south of the Andaman Sea, almost on the border with Malaysia.

5. Vaccines and mosquitoes
You don't have to get a vaccine to go to Thailand. But in some cities and islands in the south it is advisable to redouble the mosquito guard and prevention because there are areas with dengue.

6. Motorcycle rental
It is very easy and cheap to rent motorcycles on almost all tourist islands; In some it is even the only way to move. But beware! They don't tell you that you don't carry insurance and if something happens, you have a blow or an accident, they will then hold back your passport or the deposit you have left. The most rogues invent rubs or blows that were already there to make them pay. Make the rental conditions very clear from the beginning.

7. A sunset in a skyscraper in Bangkok
One of the magical moments of Bangkok is at sunset, when the lights of the neons blend with those of the sunset. The best way to enjoy it is to climb the panoramic bars that offer several of the hotels installed in skyscrapers in the downtowm.

8. Shopping yes, but carefully
Thailand, and especially Bangkok, is a shopping paradise. Especially those of electronic devices. There are shopping centers such as the Siam Square MBK with dozens and dozens of mobile stores, photo and video cameras, computers and all kinds of modern little gadgets.

9. Attire in the temples
Any route through Thailand involves visiting numerous temples. They require dress standards: in general, women should wear a skirt below the knees and a shirt or shirt that does not show their shoulders. In many places, for example, the entire complex of the Royal Palace and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, neither men nor women are allowed to enter with shorts; On these sites there are usually shops that rent or sell simple long cotton pants.

10. Health
Thailand has a more than acceptable and efficient sanitary service. In case of health problems, do not hesitate to go to a Thai hospital, either private or public. Of course, the Spanish Social Security does not cover the attention there. It is advisable to take out travel insurance; in case of need, the agreed number is called by phone and they open a file that authorizes the expenses that will be generated for hospital admission. Private insurance type Adelas, Sanitas, etc. they also cover, in most cases, assistance abroad.
