When to Visit?
Both Thailand and Cambodia are blessed with one of Asia’s simpler weather systems and despite having two distinct weather seasons you can travel in Thailand and Cambodia all-year-round. However, the summer months of May to August are considered very hot by travellers and it is advisable to plan based on personal preferences and comfort.
Travellers with Disabilities
Thailand: Not all tourist attractions have ramps or are easily accessible by wheelchair but, generally speaking, Thai people will help you out if you politely ask for assistance. Language barriers can sometimes create as many difficulties as physical barriers so it’s advised to plan upfront in order to have a local agent representative with you all the time for special requests and needs.
Cambodia: Disabled travel in Cambodia is manageable so long as you are prepared to move slowly and have the right support from a good local agent representative. Visitors with limited mobility, especially wheelchair users, may find the usual routes around the Angkor temples challenging due to the very uneven ancient pavements and steps in the doorways.
Thailand: Thailand has plenty of attractions for children of all age groups such as Ocean world, beautiful beaches etc. Thai people are very fond of children and treat them well.
Cambodia: Most people consider a visit to Cambodia as visiting historical, ancient monuments but this can be turned into a lot of fun for kids with activities ranging from nature walk, treks, visiting floating villages, tuk tuk rides, elephant rides and can be a pleasant adventure.
What to Wear?
Thailand: Comfortable clothing is recommended for Thailand. However, Thai people have high regard to good dressing sense. Travelers are advised to wear modest clothing.
Visiting Thai temples have stricter dress code. Shorts, revealing Ts are a strict no-no! The basic rule is to cover your shoulders and knees (for both men and women), and ideally you’d cover your ankles too. On the bottom, wear longer shorts, capris, pants/trousers or a knee-length-or-longer skirt. On top, choose any shirt that fully covers your shoulders.
Cambodia: Lightweight, loose-fitting, cotton clothing is recommended for the dry season, when the weather is hot and humid. Travelers could also wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts for hiking, trekking, or outdoor activities. A hat and sunglasses may be useful when walking around under the sun.
During the rainy season, visitors may want to bring a light rain poncho (plastic ponchos can be purchased cheaply in Cambodia) or a sturdy umbrella. A light jacket or cardigan will come in handy during the months of December and January, when temperatures are at their coolest.
When visiting outdoor temples, including those of Angkor Wat, shorts and T-shirts are acceptable. Shoes and hats are generally removed at the entrance to pagodas. For visits to the Silver Pagoda, which is within the Royal Palace grounds. visitors are asked to dress more formally. Gentlemen are required to wear long trousers and ladies should wear long trousers or long skirts and keep their shoulders covered.
Indian nationals intending to visit Thailand can get visa-on-arrival for up to 14 days stay.
Travellers are allowed to bring up to USD 20,000 while traveling to Thailand. Any amount above this need to be declared at the customs (with a valid reason for carrying more cash/cash equivalents)
