Thailand 5D4N Travel Guide

Bangkok, Ayutthaya, Pattaya

Contributed by: Isay Turla 

This itinerary includes:
Exchange Rate on travel dates: 1 Php = 0.72 baht
I would suggest having your money exchanged somewhere else cheaper. Sobrang mahal sa airport!! The best magpapalit sa Khao San Road. Kinabog pa ang forex. Mas mababa pa palitan nila.
BEWARE OF THE TUKTUK SCAMMERS! Never agree to pay 100 baht and above kung di kayo lalampas ng 4-5km. Pwede din kayo magUber, mas mura 🙂 Just pin the exact location. As in exact kung ayaw niyong mag-ala alien hahaha!
