Our checklist of things will help you to take everything you need for all occasions.
Printouts of the ticket and hotel reservation may be needed at the passport control if employees ask where you plan to stay and when you are going to leave the country. These documents will be also useful during filling in a migration card. You can show a piece of paper with the hotel address to a taxi driver. In order not to waste time searching for free taxis and explanations with the driver, you can book a transfer at our website and get to the hotel comfortably.
Passport copies will be needed for processing visa documents, renting a vehicle or checking into a hotel. It is better to leave the original passport in the hotel safe and carry a copy with you. Make sure that the validity of the passport is not less than 6 months. You can also make electronic copies of documents and save them on your e-mail in order to download and print if necessary.

Bank cards and cash. We advise you to take several cards of international banks. To prevent the blocking of cards, you can warn the bank about the upcoming trip. You should take little sum in cash in dollars or euros to exchange it at the airport for baht and get to the hotel.
