Plug Adaptor

In Thailand, our electrical plugs are the same as in Thailand, it is not necessary to bring a plug adaptor. However, in remote areas like in the countryside, infrastructures standards may not correspond to international standards and you may need to bring an adaptor in this case. You can buy it eveywhere (shopping mall, supermarket, 7 Eleven…)

Unit of measure

Thai people use the same unit of measure as in France : gram, kilogram, ton, centimeter…

Note : a Thai « khid » is the equivalent of 100 grams

Services quality


Unlike France, services are centralized in Thailand. You’ll find everything that you need at the same place.

At the 7 Eleven, you’ll have access to multiple services :

  • buy cigarettes (24h/24) and alcohol (only from to 2 pm. And from 5pm to midnight)
  • Pay your electricity bill
  • Refill your communication credit
  • Place an order and receive your parcels
  • Buy snacks and drinks

You’ll soon get used to it and will hop in every 7Eleven to enjoy the A/C ! There are more than 7,000 7/Eleven spread throughout the country, in both the urban and rural cities.

In Thailand, the population well-being and confort is a top priority. No matter what time it is, supermarkets and local markets are open 24/7 !  In addition to 7-Eleven, you can also shop at Villa market, Foodland supermarket, et FamilyMart.



Affordable cost of living, Thailand has become the preferred holiday destination for tourists.

1 € = appr. 35 THB

1000 THB = appr. 30€

500 THB = appr. 15€

100 THB = appr. 2€ 80

50 THB = appr. 1€ 40

In the BTS Stations: to buy your one-way token, you will need coins, many foreigners are not used to this. You’ll be able to change your bank notes at any BTS cashier.
Cash withdrawal at the ATMs: even if you have an international credit card, you’ll have to pay the transfer fees (around 200 THB). It’s wiser to withdraw a large amount of cash.
Loyalty programs

In Thailand, people are more likely to use their loyalty card than in any other countries. Customers regularly receive promotions and special offers all year-round. Depending on their mobile operators (AIS, True, DTAC are the major providers), customers will benefit from additional promotions in several sectors (transportation, restaurants, clothing, banks, airlines, cinema, bowling, karaoke…) thanks to the partnerships developed between big local and international companies.
