The most fun part of going on a trip is the planning phase. Where do we go? Where do we stay? What do we see?
Planning a trip begins with booking flights and hotels well in advance. It’s the most exciting part and takes us on a virtual trip to our destination. Looking at all the enticing photographs, researching places to see, and ultimately finding the best deals.
One of the most important travel items you should consider packing is an international sim card. Not only do you want to keep in touch with your loved ones back home, but to get the best travel experience, having an affordable data plan and a local number is very important.
Most of us who have seldom traveled outside India, are mostly skeptical or overwhelmed of the fact that you are travelling to a foreign land on your Indian salary and don’t want to muddle up an experience trying to figure out things, languages, transport, places to visit, etc. Here is a little experience gained tips from our recent Thailand travel.
One of the most preferred destinations in south east Asia, Thailand is one of the most addictive places I’ve ever been to. Thanks to its currency rate ( Roughly 1 Baht = 2 Rs) , it’s a great choice for budget travelers who want to explore a foreign destination. Hence wrote this Thailand 6 days itinerary that should be ideal to plan your perfect international vacation.
Prepaid Thailand SIM cards are easily available for tourists to Thailand both at the airport as well as in town.
General Availability of Thailand SIM cards
At the airport, outside of the International gates, there are kiosks for DTAC (blue colour), AIS (Green colour) and True Move (Red colour). Try to get your SIM card in a branded store of the provider, at airports or in malls or in 7-Eleven kiosks where you pay the original price. Many independent sellers will only sell you the SIM with a surcharge like a tourist SIM of 299 THB for 399 THB.
