I’m Traveling to Thailand what do I need?


  1. Walking boots — pretty essential as you are likely to do trekking, but even a short Thailand itinerary will have you walking a lot! And good walking socks too!
  2. One pair of jeans — not more than one!
  3. Shorts and T-shirts so that you are comfy for travel.
  4. Scarf — for ladies to cover their shoulders in the temples.
  5. Long walking trousers — for men visiting temples.
  6. Sun hat — the heat can get intense, particularly in April.
  7. Dress — for ladies who want to go out on the evening.
  8. Sandals or flip-flops to easily remove for when entering temples.


  • Ibuprofen/Paracetomol
  • Rennie (to settle the stomach)
  • Dioralyte sachets (for dehydration)
  • Ice pack (incase of falls or sprains)
  • Regular medication e.g. inhalers
  • Antihisthamines (for allergies or bites)
  • Savlon or anti-septic cream

  • Gadgets and chargers — mobile phone, laptop, tablet, camera.
