Thailand: Bangkok is a city of temples and eat streets scattered across many neighborhoods, each with its own personality. However, you haven’t fully experienced the City of Angels until you’ve taken a cue from Bruce Lee and entered the dragon.
Trip Planning: The planning stage of your trip can be instrumental in its success and an enjoyable part of the experience itself. You have a world of options...and plenty to consider.
Entry and Exit formalities: Entry procedures for Thailand, by air or by land, are straightforward: you’ll have to show your passport and boarding pass, and you’ll need to present completed arrival and departure cards.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs oversees immigration and visa issues. There are frequent modifications of visa regulations so check the website or the nearest Thai embassy or consulate for application procedures and costs.

Money: Use your money wisely. Know the best time to use cash or card — and how to avoid unnecessary fees either way — as well as tipping etiquette, and how shoppers can take advantage of VAT refunds.
Phones and Technology: Phones and other smart devices can be huge time-savers...or expensive distractions. Get Rick's tips for making the best use of technology during your trip, and for calling home (and within Europe) with or without your own phone.
Packing Light: On your trip you'll meet two kinds of travelers: those who pack light and those who wish they had.
Sleeping and Eating: Your hotel and restaurant choices can be a matter-of-face chore…or they can provide rich opportunities to connect with locals and their culture.
