It is recommended that you pack light. Women, this is a fun blog that has great information on it. http://herpackinglist.com/2012/04/ultimate-female-packing-list-thailand/
For men or general packing: The rule is to pack light. Finding places to do laundry will be relatively easy. Light cottons or linens are recommended. Here is a very extensive and accurate list of things you should bring. http://travelhappy.info/thailand/packing-list-for-thailand/
It is recommended that you fit everything in a small carry on suitcase or a backpacking backpack and then buy a cheap form of “luggage” if you end up buying a lot of souvenirs.
Items to be sure to pack:
- Any medications needed for the amount of time
Insect repellant (with deet)
Feminine hygiene products

In the very rare occasion that something of value might be lost or stolen, Margethai Tours will make effort will be made to recover items of value as deemed appropriate.
It is recommended that you contact your bank and inform them of your travel plans so your accounts are not frozen. Please bring about $100 U.S. dollars to be exchanged on arrival. After that, there are really two ways to get money. One, bring lots of cash, hide it, and exchange as needed. Two, bring a debit card that can be used when you need money. ATMs are readily available to the areas we will be traveling. There is a relatively minimal charge when you do use your debit card, but most travelers say they would rather pay a fee than carry around lots of cash with them. Please contact your bank for details on international withdrawals. Credit cards can be used but usually incur a percentage fee. Contact your bank for details.
