About Thailand

Thailand is a place that has something for everyone. For those interested in foreign and ancient cultures, Thailand boasts of having more visible historical evidence of past eras than any other Southeast Asian nation, so take your pick of the ubiquitous historical ruins and temples to visit.

Diving is available at all times of the year, although visibility changes according to the season. In the Andaman Sea, the best time to dive is from October to April, and in the Gulf of Thailand from May to September.

Scuba diving in Thailand has always been considered world-class. If you’ve ever dreamed of swimming with a whale shark, this is the place to do it. Not only is the land diverse above water, but below as well with huge boulders that create havens for both large & small fish. Keep an eye out into the blue for schools of tuna and other large pelagics cruising around. You will find everything in this underwater paradise from large pelagics to ribbon eels.

One of the first and still one of the most popular dive areas is Pattaya on the Gulf of Thailand, just two hours drive from Bangkok. The main beach is located on a scenic bay, but facilities are available all along this coast. the Ang Thong Islands National Marine Park, a group of more than 40 beautiful islands off the west of Surat Thani province and near Ko Samui. In Pattaya, scuba divers can organize daily trips from the resort to the offshore islands of Ko Lan, Ko Sak, and Ko Krok.

The other major water sport center is the southern island of Phuket in the Andaman Sea. The majority of diving destinations close to Phuket are located in nearby Phangnga , where hundreds of limestone islands rise up from the blue waters. Also popular are the largely uninhabited Similan Islands, recently listed among the world's ten most beautiful spots for underwater scenery and the spectacular Phi Phi Islands near Phuket.

Climate: 70 - 93F (21 - 34C)
Water Temperature: 80 - 87F (27-31C)
Visibility: 30' - 130' (10 - 40m)

Travel to Thailand

With Bangkok serving as the international travel hub of SE Asia, the capital serves as the landing port for numerous international airlines, most with direct flights from their destinations. Some chartered and regional flights may land at one of the other international airports within Thailand, consisting of Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Hat Yai, Phuket, and Ubon Ratchatani. The country's national airline is Thai Airways. Airport departure taxes for international departures costs 500 baht/person. The check-in counters open 2 hours and close half an hour prior departure time.

Domestic Travel

Domestic travel during public holidays and on weekends, particularly to popular destinations, should be booked well in advance for all modes of transportation. Booking is particularly difficult during the Songkran Holiday and New Year's Holiday.

Local air carriers Thai Airways(TG) and Bangkok Airways (PG) fly to most major provincial airports beyond 250 km distance from Bangkok. Thai Airways' 2 most popular routes are Chiang Mai and Phuket. Services to Koh Samui and Sukhothai are only provided by Bangkok Airways.

The domestic terminal is located at the southern end of the Bangkok International Airport. Normally, check-ins for domestic flight is one hour prior to departure time and closes half an hour before flight time. Departure tax has already been added to your ticket fare.

Domestic Airlines
Bangkok Airways
Thai Airways

Tickets can be purchased through travel agencies (cheaper for international flights, same for domestic flights) or by booking with the airlines themselves, either via phone, internet, or e-ticketing kiosks (Thai Airways only).

Inter-city bus services offer a fast means of transport to all corners of the country. Air-conditioned buses service many provincial areas and bookings for both regular and tour coaches (private companies) can be made through major hotels and travel agents.

The government bus company, called Bor Kor Sor (BKS), provides the cheapest mode for getting around Thailand. Being frequent and reliable, no advance booking is necessary. Both air-conditioned ones and open-aired ones stop almost everywhere along their route, with the latter being the cheapest and slowest.

The State Railway of Thailand runs an efficient rail service linking Bangkok (Hua Lam Phong is the central train station) to the rest of the country at very reasonable prices for express, fast and ordinary trains. Limited western and southern routes out of Bangkok also operate from the Thon Buri Station, traveling to destinations as far as Kanchanaburi province in the west and Chumporn province in southern Thailand.

On express trains, sleepers are available in three classes: first and second class (air-conditioned), and second class (non air-conditioned, but with fans).

Advance tickets are available at all principal stations or the Bangkok Railway Advance Booking Office at (662) 225-0300 ext 5200-3.

Entry Requirements

Visa: Visitors to Thailand who hold valid passports or travelling documents issued by any country included in an officially issued list of eligible countries are permitted one-month visa-free visits. If planning a longer stay, a Tourist Visa valid for 60 days must be obtained from a Royal Thai Embassy or Consulate abroad. Visa extensions can be applied for at the Immigration Department in Bangkok.

Each traveler to Thailand may bring in the following duty free: 200 cigarettes, one liter of wine or spirits, one still camera (plus five rolls of unused film), and one movie camera (plus three rolls of unused film). Thailand customs strictly regulates the import and export of items such as firearms, explosives, and narcotics. All books, magazines, videos or tapes which may be considered obscene or subversive are completely forbidden, as are certain species of fruits, vegetables and plants.

Upon leaving Thailand, visitors may take out gold jewelry free of duty, but export of any other gold is subject to licensing by the Ministry of Finance. Exports of Buddha images (except small ones), antiques and genuine works of art require export license from the Fine Arts Department. Ask for assistance at the shop where you purchase the item(s).
