Itinerary: Beijing / Bangkok / Koh Samui / Bangkok /  Beijing;    
Duration:  05 Days / 04 Nights


Thailand
 is often referred to as a golden land, not because there is precious metal buried underground but because the country gives off a certain luster; be it the fertile rice fields of the central plains, white sandy beaches or the warm hospitality of its citizenry. KohSamui isThailand’s third-largest island; white-sand beaches with palms blowing in the wind and clear green seas sparkling in the sunlight, against a picture-perfect background of lush green hills and brown roads, interspersed with rough wooden structures. On the map alongside places like Goa and Bali, KohSamui has polished its reputation as a hippy island paradise that remembers to provide the best of the creature comforts from home. In the last five years Samui has become as popular as Phuket, and at times as trendy.

Things To Know Before You Go

Although most of the planning and preparation is taken care of for you, there are still a few things you should know and some details you should take care of to ensure your comfort, safety and peace of mind. Please review the following information before your departure to ensure that any surprises along the way will only be pleasant ones.

Getting Ready to Go

Trip Preparation:   

A little pre-planning can make your trip go a lot smoother. Several weeks before your trip, make a list of what you will need to take with you. Make sure your personal documents (passports, visas) are in order and that you have enough prescription medications to last through the trip. We suggest that you make photocopies of passports, visas, and any other important travel documents and pack them separately from the originals. Pack a list of medications including dosage and generic names. If you lose the originals while traveling, you'll have copies for easier reporting and replacement. We recommend that you pack a portable alarm clock. 

Passports and Visas

It is each traveler's responsibility to have a passport valid for at least 6 months from the date of departure and a visa, if required.
 
According to the Interior Ministerial Announcements dated 23 June 2554 (2011), passport holders from 48 countries and 1 special administrative region - Hong Kong SAR - are not required to obtain a visa when entering Thailand for tourism purposes and will be permitted to stay in the Kingdom for a period of not exceeding 30 days on each visit.

Climate & Clothing

Thailand's climate is tropical, high both in temperature and humidity, and dominated by monsoons. April and May are the hottest months of the year, when even the locals are moved to complain about the heat. June sees the beginning of the South West Monsoon, and brings with it the rainy season, which continues intermittently until the end of October. From November to the end of February the climate is much less trying with a cooling northeast breeze and a reduction in the humidity level. This is also the main tourist season, and the best time to visit Thailand.
 
The north and north-east are generally cooler than Bangkok in winter, and hotter in summer. In the far north, around Mae Hong Son temperatures can occasionally drop as low as 20C

For the Western visitor there is no such thing as "cool". Just cooler than "hot" and "drier than humid", so light cotton clothing is the order of the day. Don't worry about bringing too much clothing with you, as almost everything can be purchased locally, at a fraction of the price you will pay at home. Do remember that the tropical sun can be quite fierce so a hat is useful, and don't forget to use a good sun screen  

Time Zone:

 Thailand is 07 hours ahead of GMT  

Currency information:

The currency of Thailand is the "Baht" - sometimes spelled "Bath" but pronounced to rhyme with "hot." One Baht is divisible into 100 Satang. Major credit cards are accepted by hotels and large shops, but "hard cash" is the preferred tender almost everywhere. Traveler checks are not widely accepted outside of hotels, so change them for cash at a bank exchange, which you'll find in any and every tourist destination. One USD is worth approximately 30.23 THB (2012)   

Electricity:

Electricity is on the 220 Volts AC/ 50-Cycle system  

Language:

Thai is the official language. English is widely spoken, especially in establishments catering to tourists  

Food and drink:

Thai food is traditionally fairly hot and spicy, but most tourist restaurants tend to tone down the heat for the more fragile Western palate. Most Thai food is prepared with fresh ingredients, such as lemon grass and coriander. Rice is commonly eaten with most meals. Popular fruits are papaya, jackfruit, mangosteens, rambutans, pomelos (similar to grapefruits) and, above all, durians, which farangs (foreigners) either love or hate. The thorny fruit has a rather malodorous scent which has even resulted in many hotels banning them from their premises. Excellent food can be found at the stalls of the many street vendors around the country as well as top-notch eateries. There are also many Asian and European restaurants throughout the major cities and smaller towns.

Specialties: 
 
  • Tom yam (a coconut-milk soup prepared with makroot leaves, ginger, lemon grass, prawns or chicken) 
  • Gang pet (hot 'red' curry with coconut milk, herbs, garlic, chili, shrimp paste, coriander and seasoning)
  • Pad Thai (stir-fried rice-noodles) served with shrimp or chicken and garnished with peanuts
  • Desserts include salim (sweet noodles in coconut milk)
  • Well worth trying is sticky rice and mangoes (rice cooked in coconut milk served with slices of mango)
  • All water should be regarded as being potentially contaminated. Water used for drinking, brushing teeth or making ice should have first been boiled or otherwise sterilized. Milk is unpasteurized and should be boiled. Powdered or tinned milk is available and is advised. Avoid dairy products that are likely to have been made from unboiled milk. Only eat well-cooked meat and fish. Vegetables should be cooked and fruit peeled 

Tipping:

Tipping is not obligatory in most places. Most hotels and restaurants will add a 10% service charge and a 7% government tax to the bill  

Making Telephone Calls from One Country to Another

When dialing a number from one country to another, you should proceed as follows: dial your country's Exit Code + destination Country Code + Phone Number.
 
For most countries, the exit code is 00. Exceptions include the USA and Canada (011), Hong Kong (001), Australia (0011), and Russia (8 Pause 10*). For Brazil, please consult with the local telephone company. If the international number you wish to call starts with a 0 (zero), you must drop this starting digit when dialing the number.
