Making yourself at home
Aside from finding a place to stay, which we have covered in the accommodation options section, you will find that there are a number of other exciting challenges waiting to greet you as you make yourself a part of the Thai way of life.
Although English is widely understood in the tourist-circuit, you will often find yourself in areas of Bangkok where you'll find a few Thai phrases easier than sign language when you want to buy a bottle of water or a bag of freshly cut tropical fruit. As the latest addition to Bangkok's melting-pot of diversity, you will quickly pick up these phrases and just a few short weeks later, you will be able to impress new arrivals with your ability to say a few short words at a roadside food-stall and, 5 minutes later, be enjoying a huge meal for less than 50 Baht!
You will never be alone. In Thailand, people are everywhere and the Thai people — world renowned for their hospitality — are always eager to help a foreigner to integrate into their culture.
