Frequently Asked Questions for Guided & Independ Thailand Tours
Q: Do I need a visa to travel to Thailand?
A: On the 30 day tours, only a valid passport is required.
Q: Are there any books that might help in my traveling to Thailand?
A: Yes, we recommend Lonely Planet, Guide to Thailand and Let's Go, Guide to Thailand - both of which will answer most, if not all of the questions you may have.
Q: How much clothing should I bring, and what kind of clothes should I bring?
A: First of all, only bring what you are comfortable carrying, as everyone will be carrying their own belongings. Ladies should bring at least one long skirt and blouse or shirt that covers their shoulders for traveling to the Grand Palace. Men should also wear long pants and a shirt that covers the shoulders as well. Participants should also have one pair of sandals that covers the heel (slip ones won't work). The weather is tropical so t-shirts and shorts will be the most appropriate for a majority of the trip.There will sometimes be cool evening and a long sleeve shirt, windbreaker, light weight Anourak or fleece would also be appropriate. Washing/laundry services are available and inexpensive. We recommend you bring a back pack and a day pack with a little extra room, for anything you may buy while you are there.
Q: Do you recommend travel insurance, trip cancellation insurance and lost baggage insurance?
A: Yes, we highly recommend it! Although you of course can choose any provider you prefer, we suggest the following providers:
