- Watch out for monsoon season in Thailand, and pack your umbrellas, rain boots, and raincoat
Thailand is a tropical destination, where the weather is hot all year round. The monsoon season is Thailand’s wet season, when you’ll need to take rain gear like rainboots, umbrellas, and raincoats. You’ll want to take waterproof gadget pouches too, to safeguard your valuables while enjoying Thailand.
As with most Asian countries, the further out of a city or town you go, you will find squat toilets, or toilets that leave much to be desired. Take toilet seat covers and disinfectant with you for a better bathroom break.
