Tourists who have gone through Thailand have left some recommendations for the safety of those who choose Land of Smiles as their destination for the next holiday.
Thailand receives over 33 million visitors annually. Beyond the benefits to the tourist industry and the economy of the country, this also means many tourists entering the “Land of Smiles” without truly understanding the habits of the area. Having some basic knowledge of the culture of the kingdom and what you expect there can mean a lot for adaptation during your holiday, but also for personal safety.
The initial price of the products may be slightly high. You can bargain at smaller shops and fairs, but try not to overdo it in this regard. The best way is to ask the desired price and tell in turn how much you are willing to offer. Do not spend all your time and energy to get the lowest possible price.
The Thai people are quiet and extremely polite. They do not like conflicts and give up easy when they see that they are not understood. Things are moving at a much slower pace in the Land of Smiles, so upload yourself with patience and sense of humor.
You will quickly realize that the Thai people are one of the most friendly and hospitable people in the world, but that does not mean that the country is free from scammers. Beware of cheap prices or taxis that include a few “stops” along the way. These low rates often mean you will be taken to shops and restaurants where the driver receives commissions. Take care of your pockets in crowded markets and do not rush to accept any business that seems too good to be true. Most public toilets in Thailand are not equipped with toilet paper.
