Things to remember: 1. Thais do not know English. Use only the key word for communicating with them. 2. There is an information center at every station, i. e. airport, BST station, Bus terminal. Get the help from there and always GET THE MAP FROM THE INFORMATION CENTER. 3. You have to gather a good knowledge over map before traveling.
