One litre of alcoholic beverage and 200 cigarettes, plus reasonable personal effects(such as 
one still camera, one movie or video camera, personal jewellery etc) may be brought in duty 
free and taken out on departure. Narcotics, drugs, pornographic material and firearms are 
strictly prohibited. Visit our Thailand Duty Free Shop Unlimited foreign currency, traveller's cheques, money orders etc may be brought into the country, but any amount over US$10,000 must be declared on entry. Amount taken out of the country may never exceed that declared upon entry.

Thais usually dress smartly and politely. A jacket and tie are only worn on formal occasions. 
Ties are worn in air-conditioned offices but rarely outside. Light cotton clothing is best and the general tip is to bring very little and buy locally as it is very cheap for most visitors. Shoes are removed at all temples, some offices and most homes.


The unit of currency is the Baht. It comes in denominations of 1,000, 500, 100, 50, 20, 10 
Baht notes and coins of 10, 5, 1 Baht. The Baht is sub-divided into 100 Satang but these are generally disregarded.

Most hard currencies can be exchanged freely in Thailand and there are many banks and authorised money exchangers throughout the city.

Travelers cheques / credit cards

When travelling to Thailand it is advisable to bring your money as travellers cheques. 
Not only are they obviously safer but also you receive a higher rate by cashing travellers
cheques instead of notes, which is an advantage.

Credit cards, particularly Visa and Mastercard, are accepted in most places but if you 
buy anything on a credit card expect to have to pay of 3 to 5% for the privilege.

US dollar travellers cheques can be conveniently cashed at all provincial banks and 
authorized money changers. Travellers cheques in other currencies are best changed in 
Bangkok where better rates prevail.

Airport tax

Outgoing passengers on international flights from Bangkok's Don Muang airport must pay 500 baht. 30 baht per person is collected for Domestic flight except Samui flight, at baht 400 per person is collected at Samui Airport.


If you wish to drive in Thailand a valid international driving licence is required. Thais 
drive on the left side of the road and throughout the country internationally recognised 
signs are used and all signs are written in Thai and English. Insurance is compulsory 
and if you hire from the major firms, Hertz, Budget or Avis you should have no problems. 
Some smaller operators only insure for third party and as the driver you would be held 
responsible for any damage to your car or its occupants in the event of an accident so do 
check the insurance carefully.
