Before getting into the taxi, you need to agree on the fair with the driver, it's usually 5 GEL in the city and 10 GEL for far distances in the city and 20 GEL to or from the airport.

Always negotiate price before getting in a tuk tuk. The driver may try to tell you your destination is closed and try to take you to a tailor, boat cruise, other hotel, etc. It's a scam!! Kindly refuse but they can be very persistent. If that's the case, get out of the vehicle and find someone else that will take you to your destination.

If you happen to have an Internet data on your mobile phone, to avoid a taxi scams PLEASE use these taxi apps 'Uber' or 'Grab' Even sometimes the taxi driver cannot speak very well English, trust me, the fares will be normal and same as the local. If you just catch a taxis from the streets please be prepared of those (bad) drivers who are not willing to use the meter

After arriving at Suvarnabhumi International and going through passport control, you'll pick up your luggage. Afterward, you'll walk through customs and come to a long walkway filled with little shops on your left and people waiting for their loved ones in holding areas on the right. Find the shop selling DTAC SIM cards. They are extremely inexpensive and you can get unlimited data for your trip. As long as your phone is unlocked, you'll be able to pop in the Thai SIM card and able to use it right away.

After going through passport control and customs at Suvarnabhumi International, ignore all the people trying to get your attention for a private taxi. Head downstairs to the lowest floor to find a meter taxi and get one there. Make sure your driver puts the meter on. Otherwise, don't be afraid to get out and get another taxi.

The head is considered the most revered part of the body and the foot is considered the lowest. Take care not touch another person's head or use the foot to point to or pick up something off the ground. Doing so is considered an extreme insult.

While renting a motorbike is insanely inexpensive and seemingly a fantastic way to get around be wary that ANYONE with a passport and $3 can get one. Doesn't matter if you're the best motorcyclist in the world - everyone else on the road sure as hell isnt.

All currency in Thailand has a portrait of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej or a deceased relative. Therefore DO NOT EVER step on a coin or Thai banknote to stop it from rolling/blowing away. DO NOT throw a note or coin towards another person. DO NOT tear, burn or otherwise damage a note or coin. These acts can been perceived as disrespectful toward His Majesty The King and may be considered highly offensive to any Thai person.
