The weather in Thailand


Thailand’s climate is hot, tropical and humid. However, there are variations depending on the area of ​​the country and the time in which we visit.

Baht, the currency of Thailand

The currency of Thailand is the Baht, its acronym is THB (this is how we will find it expressed on many occasions in the currency exchange places or online converters) and has a value at the exchange of about 30 THB (for each dollar). That is, US $ 1 equals 30 THB.

When traveling to Thailand you can change your dollars to the currency of the country at the airports and at the currency exchange offices that you will find in all major cities. Keep in mind that it is generally more convenient to exchange money in cities than in Thai airports.

Vaccines to travel to Thailand


There are no compulsory vaccines to travel to Thailand, with the exception of the Yellow Fever, a disease for which, as in many other destinations, a vaccination certificate is required in the case of having previously been in a country with risk of transmission of said disease.

Language


The official language of the country is Thai, which has its own and very characteristic alphabet, and of which there are various ethnic and regional dialects.

Thai gastronomy


The cuisine of Thailand is tasty and varied, with dishes for almost every taste. In addition, it should be noted that it is an ideal destination for vegetarians, as they can find a wide range of options according to their diet or food preferences. Two basic elements in Thai cuisine are rice and noodles, which they prepare in many different ways. Vegetables are also very present in the traditional dishes of the country, both as a main ingredient, as in preparations based on rice, noodles, chicken, fish or seafood; or simply as accompaniment.
