Accommodations and transportation
Once there, you will have to find accommodation. The offer is prolific and you won't have a lot of trouble finding a room even you didn't book your accommodation in advance. However, it is recommended for your peace of mind to book at least the first night you spend in Thailand and even those you plan to spend in the very popular tourist destinations such as Phuket, Koh Phi Phi, Pattaya or Koh Samui, especially during the December-February period (the site Agoda
often offers the best deals).
To move from city to city, there are several options. Taking a plane is the fastest and the most expensive one and only available for certain destinations (see travel by plane in Thailand)
. The train also does not serve all cities in the country. It is the cheapest transportation in Thailand but also the slowest one (see to travel by train in Thailand)
. And finally, the bus, the most practical option. It goes faster than the train and by bus you can almost go everywhere (see travel by bus in Thailand)
. It remains the boat or ferry to go to the islands (see boats to go to the islands of Thailand)
. Formulas combining bus and ferry exist.
