A Step By Step Information To Planning A Journey To Thailand
Of course, you will need to take out travel insurance for your trip to Thailand. I have never traveled without travel insurance – but I know people who have and some of them have ended up regretting their decision.
On one of my trips to Thailand, I caught a nasty eye infection (do not ask me how, but I guess, as someone who wears contact lenses, I may be more prone to this) and had to go to the hospital for various tests and expensive medicine. In addition, the island I stayed on did not have a well-equipped private hospital, so I had to take a bus and a boat to get to the neighboring island. All expenses were covered by my insurance at the end, and my eyes were fine after a week.
Once you encounter this, you will never board a plane without travel insurance. And indeed, travel policies are very affordable these days!

Whatever you do, make sure you choose the right contract and don’t forget to add motorcycle insurance, because I know you will try it in Thailand! Although I do not need to pay extra coverage for any previous medical history, I will always make sure to inform my insurance provider as you never know if an old medical condition could recur.
Having travel insurance gives you peace of mind, you stop worrying about what could go wrong and just be free and explore. And so it must be a trip to Thailand!
Now, let’s talk about vaccinations for Thailand.
No specific vaccinations are required for Thailand, but it is not bad to check when you were last vaccinated. The most common for international travelers are hepatitis A and B, typhoid and Tdap for tetanus. These will protect you for years to come as well.
Dengue fever is the biggest risk in Thailand and, since there is no vaccine for dengue fever at the moment, it is best to know how to avoid mosquito bites such as night and spray and nets.
