Thailand is one of the most popular countries of the world. It has a good balance of fantastic nightlife full of cities like Bangkok to amazing beaches in Phuket & Krabi. It has a variety of experiences to offer every age group.
Most people find this to be the best place during Christmas to New Year time; which also makes November to February the best time to travel to Thailand. The people in Thailand are very welcoming and friendly which makes for a wonderful time for every traveller.
Just like every country there are a few must haves for travel to Thailand. We’ll cover a few gadgets you must carry to make your travel easier in the country.
Power Adapters – It is a good practice to always carry an international power adapter just in case your hotel does not have a multiple outlet option. You’re more likely to face this as a challenge in Asian countries.
Waterproof Phone Case – In a country like Thailand where you’ll be exploring a lot from cityscapes to beaches it is advisable that you carry a waterproof phone case which will also save your phone from any dust or water to enter. This will also allow you to take underwater photographs.
Affordable Underwater Camera – Using a phone with a waterproof cover to take underwater photos is an option but for better quality it’s advisable to buy an underwater camera. It takes good pictures & you can buy the most reasonable cameras online. This will also save you the cost of having to invest in a GoPro.
Portable Phone Charger – If you’re travelling long hours you might want to keep a portable phone charger. Most airlines do not allow you to carry portable chargers in your luggage anymore but you can always check with them at the airport & carry the same in your cabin bag.
Bluetooth Speakers & Headphone Splitter – Now this is not a mandatory gadget. But for the ones planning to travel to Thailand with their friends would need this every other night. Maybe at the beach or just in the hotel for an after party. You might also want to carry headphone splitter so two people can watch a movie, show or just listen to music from an iPad or tablet.
Selfie Stick – Sometimes you can end up stressing your arm for a perfect selfie. In situations like this selfie stick comes in handy. Whether it’s for a quick solo photo or for a group photo with a lovely background. It’s quite great to keep a selfie stick just to capture great pictures while you’re on a vacation in Thailand.
