Clothing for Bangkok weather: The average temperature during the day is usually 33C-39C / 93F-100F and more than 80% humidity all year round. The more comfortable clothing, the more enjoyable you can stay longer on tour and not too exhausted. I would recommend wearing light colored or lightweight material clothing on tour and avoid thick material clothing such as jeans or dark color clothing as you may feel exhausted very quickly on tour.

Shoes: Wearing sandals are allowed at the temples or/and the Grand Palace. I would recommend you to wear comfortable walking shoes as we will walk a lot for the tours average distance 6-10 kilometers / 4-6 miles depending on the itineraries. To visit temples, You require taking off your shoes and hats before entering into some buildings. Socks are okay to walk inside the buildings.

Bring extra things on tour: To prevent heat stroke, overheating or sunburn; I would recommend you bring suncream, sunglasses, medicine, hat or umbrellas etc. if you need.

Thai Baht cash on tour: The balance payment is only required THB cash on tour. I do not have a credit card swipe machine with me on/during the tours. Local shops, vendors, souvenir shops, transportation etc. are required only THB cash. You can able pay by credit card only at the restaurant and there might be 2-3% surcharged at most restaurants.
