SIM CARD IN THAILAND AND BEST THAILAND TOURIST SIM CARD

PREPAID SIM CARD IN THAILAND BACKGROUND

First thing we have to say about Thailand prepaid sim card that internet and data connection in Thailand is working great especially if we compare with the Philippines where we were coming from.

In Thailand you will find in most of the places 4G and good wifi connection even night buses. Only in a few remote places in Thailand the connection can be intermittent. 

We recommend you to get your Thailand sim card at Bangkok airport if you are in a hurry. Since there is no big difference with prices and packages.

You will have to show your passport if you buy your Thailand sim card in the airport or even if you book online or in a local shop in the city. 

Sometimes is hard to connect your laptop to the VPN and you have to be patient. If you go for a week you will find VPN with free trials. We used Atlas VPN, ExpressVPN, NordVPN, Surfshark and Proton VPN. When connecting the VPN to your device will make it slower than usual.
