#1. Health Check: Primary concern

  • Diseases like chikungunya, filariasis, dengue, and Japanese Encephalitis are quite common in Thailand. Save your way from these vectors.

  • Laws are severely tight in Thailand. So, keep a check on your tongue and actions.
  • Drug offences are prohibited, and you may get even the death penalty for that.
