FAQs on Thailand

What is the currency of Thailand?

The currency of Thailand is Baht, which consists of six kinds of coins and notes. The most useful of them are the bills of 20 and 100 as the local vendors tend to ask for change. No other currency is accepted in Thailand.
Credit cards can be used at all the big retail stores and restaurants. However, most local stores don't take them.

What is unique about culture of Thailand?

The Thai culture is heavily influenced by Buddhism and has some Indian roots. There are Hindu, Christian and Muslim minorities too.

A Thai greeting typically consists of closed hands and a slight bow of the head called the 'wai'. One pre-Buddhist tradition that can still be found in Thailand is the spirit house. These houses can be found at the corners of any house or office and are believed to keep the evil spirits at bay. Thai dances and music are ritual based and form a primary source of entertainment for the locals.

The official language of Thailand is Thai. Thai is a tonal language and is a little tricky to comprehend. The public signs found here are bilingual, written in both English and Thai. English is widely spoken, especially in tourist areas as Thailand sees a great influx of visitors throughout the year.

How is Thailand divided into regions?

Thailand is divided into five geographical and cultural regions:

  1. Northern Thailand - This consists of the areas like Chiang Mai, Golden Triangle and the hill tribes. This region does not have beaches and is more cultural than the southern parts.
  2. Central Thailand - The capital city of Bangkok, the lowlands and historical areas of Thailand are a part of the central region.
  3. Isaan - Also known as the great northeastern region, this area is perfect for the adventure enthusiasts with backcountry Thailand, the magnificent Khmer ruins and mouth-watering delicacies.
  4. Eastern Thailand - This area is comprised of beaches and islands which are within easy reach of Bangkok like Koh Samet and Koh Chang. Pattaya, with its infamous walking street, belongs here.
  5. Southern Thailand - The southern part of Thailand is characterised by lush rainforests, pristine coastlines and numerous islands. The famous beach spots like Phuket, Krabi, Koh Samui and Koh Tao fall in this region.
