Traveling to Thailand What do I Need?

Many people say to me I’m traveling to Thailand what do I need? And the short and simple answer is that if you are traveling to Thailand, you will need a lot less than you think! Pack light so that it is easy when you are travelling around Thailand. Clothes dry extremely quickly in the heat, and so you don’t really need more than three or four changes of clothes. Thailand is an extremely cheap place to shop, and so I recommend getting a lot of things when you get there. Here’s a quick lost to answer what you need for Thailand if you want a decent packing list/guide:

Money and Passport

  • Thai Baht (local currency)

  1. One pair of jeans — not more than one!

  3. Scarf — for ladies to cover their shoulders in the temples.
  4. Long walking trousers — for men visiting temples.
  5. Sun hat — the heat can get intense, particularly in April.
  6. Dress — for ladies who want to go out on the evening.
  7. Sandals or flip-flops to easily remove for when entering temples.
