Safety Tips for your Thailand Tour

Beware of Pickpockets

As in any other destination, beware of pickpockets when you traveling in crowded areas. If possible, keep your valuables safely locked away in the safe of your hotel and do not wear eye-catching jewelry. Purses are best worn close to your body and don’t leave your luggage unattended. While instances of pick-pocketing in Thailand is the same as in most other countries, it is best to be cautious.

Decide on your Taxi Fare in Advance

All our chauffeurs and vehicles are tested constantly by our team to ensure that you always travel safely. Should you ever need a taxi or a tuk tuk, be sure to negotiate the fare in advance. Metered taxis are available only in Bangkok city. When in doubt, please check at your hotel or with your Trip Coordinator for the usual fare.

Tread Cautiously Through Traffic

Traffic can be extremely chaotic especially in cities and metropolitan areas. Exercise extreme caution while you are navigating busy roads.

Be Respectful of Local Customs

Thai people are generally very friendly, polite and liberal. While in other countries, it common to speak and bargain loudly, this is not the case in Thailand – raising your voice is considered quite disrespectful.

Exercise Caution While Swimming

Never go swimming unattended and especially avoid the water when the red flag is hoisted on the beach. The currents in Thailand’s waters are known to change quickly and a calm sea can be deceptive for the uninitiated! If you are unsure about when to swim, ask at your hotel or your Trip Coordinator is it is safe to swim.

One of the very best travel experiences I have ever had. We even got updates once at 3 am! He also made one change in one day’s itinerary to accommodate our wishes which was very wonderful. For business, I have traveled to Europe, Russia, all over Asia and South Africa but was blown away by all the beautiful sites in Argentina and Chile.
