Welcome to Thailand guys welcome to Silver nabumi airport.

So what are the first 20 things that you should do once you arrive to Thailand now, of course you are tired, exhausted past the immigration claim your baggage, and you are thinking what to do first, so in today's Vlog relax, I'm gonna give you 20 points.

If you follow them, you are going to have a better vacation in Thailand, even from the first hour that you arrive.

So let us start from the first one, as you can see guys.

It's super busy welcome to Thailand again.

So the first thing you should do is to exchange some money and get some type it so that you can do all the things that you should do before you leave Savannah Airport.

Let me tell you: where is the arrival floors and, of course, tell you where to exchange money in order to get good rates? Let's go so guys.

The arrival floor is the second floor in silver, nabumi airport.

Of course, lots of you know that the second floor is the arrival floor and you can do everything once you pass.

The immigration claim your baggage and start doing the things that you should do at the airport, but my advice to you: don't exchange money at the second floor because the rates are Solo.

I'm gonna tell you that if you want good rates, you should go to the base floor behind the public transportation and there you can get high exchange rates.

But if you are lazy- and you don't want to walk to the base floor, you can exchange as less as possible so that you can buy SIM cards and, of course, pay the transportation to your accommodation.

Now, let's jump into the second point and tell you where to buy SIM cards and what kind of SIM card you can buy at supernaboomi airport? Well, my friends now that we have a local currency where to buy SIM cards at surinabumi airport, as I said you can do everything at the second floor, which is the arrival floors, but what kind of SIM cards to buy? Well, the question is how long you are staying and how much internet you need.

After that, you can choose what SIM card to buy.

You have SIM cards for seven days.

You have SIM cards for 15 days and, of course you have SIM cards for one month.

So if you want to buy a SIM card, always know how long you are staying now here, I'm gonna give you another tip.

If you don't like to buy a SIM card from Savannah boom airport, then you can buy it at 7-Eleven in Bangkok for cheaper prices, so guys once you get the SIM card, you have your number on the pack, take a peek and keep it in your phone because you will need it a lot.

People will ask your phone number and I am sure you will not memorize it.

So once you get it take a peek and of course, keep it in your phone.

Now that we have a SIM card in our phone, then it's time to be connected then connect your phone to the internet and welcome to Thailand.

Of course you are wondering if you don't have a SIM card.

How to connect to the internet, then no worries you have a free internet as soon album airport.

If you didn't buy the SIM card from Savannah Airport, then you also can get connected to the internet through the internet of the airport.

Now that we have a SIM card and of course, some cash- let's see, what's the best of transportation, to go to our accommodation exit from the first floor and, of course, after that, I am going to the base floor to take the airport link so guys, as I said, along the way that you can use also the bus.

If you are at the first floor, so it's 60 Baht for a person.

It operates from 6 till 8 pm and of course these are the stops along the way.

So, if you want to use the bus, then it's 60 Baht per person.

Now, let's say about the taxes.

You have three type of taxes.

Once you arrive to the first floor, the large taxi, the regular taxi and, of course, a short distance taxi.

So if you are going to take a taxi from the first floor, you have to press all these machines take a ticket and, of course, head to the line that your taxi is waiting.

Foreign ERS viewers always comment and tell me if these taxes are omitted or if they're any kind of scams guys be sure these taxes are on meter no scams once you go out from the first floor, take your ticket head to the line and, of course the taxi is on meter.

So no worries and I don't know from where these people get the stories that the taxis here are scammed, nope.

They are on meter and this is the best way if you are a family and you have a lot of luggage.

Now, let's go to the base floor because I'm going to take the airport link and after that continue what are the things that you should do once you arrive to Thailand, let's go foreign as you can see along the way.

If you want to take a bus to huahin or Pattaya, you can take it from the first floor.

That's an extra information along the way, and now we are heading to the base floor to take the airport link, welcome to Bangkok guys, as you saw, the action begins once you are out from the public transportation and, of course, along the way.

You saw that it's so easy to take public transportation from airport to downtown Bangkok.

Now that we are next to our hotel time to check in, but don't forget to ask details because lots of people forget to ask the time to check out.

When is the breakfast all the facilities that you can use while you are at this hotel and lots of people pay for extra things, and they never ask about the details.

So once you check in ask about the details and of course you will get everything you paid for it.

Thank you once you are at your hotel room, relax, arrange your valuable things and, of course, have a bag to carry everything you need once you go out so now it's time to go out and explore where things according to the weather, never ever overdress, because you are not going to enjoy exploring around.

If you are wearing more than you should foreign, as you can see, it's super hot so be aware what to wear now we are out, and the first thing we have to do is to check what are the public transportation that is located next to our hotel, because if you want to navigate then know what are the public transportations around your hotel so that we know how to navigate and, of course, to save money and time now, if you are new to the area, start exploring Rome before you take any public transportation and go anywhere because in this case you are going to know what are the facilities that is located around your hotel from restaurants into money exchange and, of course, everything you need to use.

Thank you walk on the sidewalks.

There are lots of taxes, motorbikes and it's super dangerous.

If you don't follow the rules, so always walk on sidewalks and while you are crossing the roads always check when you have to cross, because if you want to explore and stay safe, then follow the rules, especially in Bangkok.

Thank you stay hydrated.

It's super hot super humid.

So always give something to drink with you a bottle of water and always keep hydrated so that you can enjoy exploring Thailand and especially in the hot days now after exploring around now it's time to have some food and of course you are in Thailand and you love Thai food, but guys don't go extreme because you might spend the rest of your day at the toilet, and you don't want to do that at your first day.

While you are walking and exploring around, you will see a lot of shopping options, but don't buy everything if you need something just go for it.

But if you love shopping then visit the malls, because the shopping options on the streets are not the best options.

Foreign and buy everything you need- or maybe you forgot at home and I, am sure you will find everything.

Once you visit a 7 11.

download all the applications that you need in order to enjoy Thailand better I've made an entire Vlog telling you what are the helpful or most important applications that you need on your phone.

If you want to enjoy your stay in Thailand, better foreign.

Take a break and relax Thailand is overwhelming and you are going to get exhausted so once you feel tired, go back to your hotel, relax and I am sure you are going to explore the rest of the things at the coming days.

So my friends I hope you enjoyed this Vlog and had an idea about some of the basic points that you should do once you arrive to Thailand or let's say at the first day, so that you will enjoy your vacation better.

Starting from the first hour you arrive to Thailand.

Thank you for watching stay tuned.
