Should I change money before I go?
It is best to change your money before you leave in order to secure a good rate, however currency exchange services are available at Bangkok airport and in the city. If you haven’t exchanged your money before travelling, you still have opportunities to get money changed, just ask your guide for assistance.
How much should I budget per day for extras?
Although many meals and activities are included in the price of your trip, we recommend having a few extra pennies to cover meals, wine and those all important massages. Around £20-50 a day should be fine, but this is guidance only as you know your spending patterns better than we do.
Is it customary to tip?
Gratuities for great service are very much appreciated.
Tips are not compulsory and is entirely at your own discretion. For everyday life, we recommend between $5-8 a day which you can give to your guide to distribute equally. Then for your guide and driver, it is customary, though not compulsory to tip them around $5 at the end of the day or to hand it all over at the end of the adventure.
