Tips to Stay Connected (the budget way) in Thailand

It’s no secret that we love Thailand so much that we make it a point to visit the lovely country at least once a year. There’s just so much to do in Thailand:

Siam Square, Bangkok
Platinum Mall, Bangkok

Jek Be Ak Seafood Restaurant, Hua Hin
Som Tam Nua, Bangkok

Hua Hin Hills Vineyard
Sun, Sea & Surf @ Hua Hin Beach

Night Life
Sirocco Bar, Bangkok
Vertigo & Moon Bar, Banyan Tree

Cooking Class @ Hansar, Bangkok
Silom Cooking School

I always wish I could share these amazing holiday pictures with our facebook friends and instagram followers almost instantly. Hence, I can always found sitting at a hotel lobby’s lounge leeching on the free wi-fi to stay connected with my families, friends and fans.

Fortunately for us, some of our readers who just came back from their holidays to Thailand told us that one could actually purchase DTAC’s Happy Tourist Sim to stay connected in Thailand. The sim pack is based on pay as you go. It is for tourists staying less than 3 months and the best thing is it starts from 49 baht (RM5)!

What caught my eyes is the cheap international SMS rate (5 baht/RM 0.50 per SMS) and free 7-day unlimited internet on wifi/3g for Happy Tourist SIM 299! That’s like only RM30 for unlimited internet, cheap call rates, low SMS rates, etc! Woots!

The Happy Tourist SIM pack can be easily purchased at Suvarnabhumi Airport (arrival on the 2nd Floor, Gate 7), 7-eleven, mobile retailer shops, dtac centers or service halls.

Kawp khun khrap for this lovely piece of travel tips!
