I've been doing some research on what the typical Thai wears and found out they are modest when it comes to clothes...they frown on women wearing shorts and sleeveless tops. So, I made sure to order a couple of skirts to pack as well as a sarong (found one in a plus-size that actually fits me). Instead of tank tops, I going to find other shirts to pack. I don't want to stick out as a tourist more I already will.
I'm not sure I'll need it, but I also had some extra passport pictures taken in case I need one for a visa. It's the one thing I forgot when I traveled to Nepal, so I ended up standing in a long line to get a photo taken to get through immigrations. I want to be prepared this time.
I was just thinking the other day...I haven't even tried to learn any Thai nor have I bought a language book. I'm usually better prepared and know a few key phrases, so I'm chastising myself for not being prepared. But the, I only decided to travel to Bangkok in January, so it's not like I've had much time to learn a new language.I guess I'll pick up a phrase book and read it on the plane.
