Practical info

Etiquette

Dress modestly and appropriately when visiting local dwellings and religious sites. Always ask permission first before taking photographs, especially in minority areas. Try not to show the soles of your feet as this is considered disrespectful, and if someone bows to you then always return the gesture, with both hands pressed together, unless the person is younger than you.

Tipping

Widely practiced, please note service is often included at high-end restaurants. Private guides - we recommend $10 a day.

Bargaining

This is always the case when shopping from markets and street stalls.

Visa requirements

British passport holders can obtain a visa on entry into Thailand.

Safety

There is a small malarial risk in some northern parts of Thailand, so if you’re heading into the jungle then take a portable mosquito net and pack plenty of mosquito repellent. See your doctor before you leave about anti-malarial medication.
