The problem is that you might not be familiar with the local service providers, so AIRPORTELs has gathered all the information you need to help you get connected while you are in Thailand. There are 3 big companies who provide signal service in Thailand. There is AIS (the green one), True (the red one), and DTAC (the blue one).The most common problem is knowing which company you should choose. AIRPORTELs will explain some of the main benefits of each company and package clearly for you.

The package that we will elaborate on is the package for 299THB from each of the three companies. All packages of sim cards for tourist offer unlimited internet with a maximum speed of up to 2.5 GB for 8 days except for AIS who offer only 7 days. You will get 100THB call credit. It costs 0.99 THB per minute for DTAC and True while it costs 1 THB per minute for AIS.

Since there is only a slight difference in the packages from each company, there is one more thing to consider which the internet speed is. According to speedtest.net, AIS ranked first in THAILAND’S FASTEST MOBILE NETWORKS 2016 AWARD. It’s followed by True and then DTAC. AIS won with the upload speed and download speed of 21.36 and 12.41 Mbps while True just lost out with 20.79 and 11.15 Mbps. DTAC came in at speeds of 17.98 and 9.35Mbps.

Finally, the last thing you want to consider is the privileges that come with using a particular company. We have listed below some of the affiliated companies who offer promotions to customers of each sim card provider.

  • SEA LIFE Bangkok
  • Central Department Stores

3 Tips – Help you navigate Bangkok taxis better

        Taxis in Bangkok are bright and colourful; blue, green, yellow, orange, pink… the list goes on. The colour of a taxi doesn’t have any impact on prices. They all offer the same service. The colour is only to indicate which company they are from. Since taxis are one of the most common ways travellers choose get around when they visit Thailand, AIRPORTELs would like to share with you some tips to avoid taxi scams in Bangkok.

Taxis in Bangkok are bright and colourful.

        There are plenty of good taxi drivers in Bangkok. However, there is no guarantee that you will find one. Even though it clearly states that they are Taxi Meters, some drivers rarely offer this option, especially when you are a tourist. Here are 3 top tips to help you navigate Bangkok taxis better:

The view from the cab to the display meter in Thailand.

        Make sure the meter is on
        According to Thai laws, the taxi fee is based on the meter counted. It starts at 35 THB, and should go up in increments based on distance travelled and time elapsed. However, when it comes to tourists, some drivers offer a fixed price instead. Sometimes the driver will let you get into the cab first before demanding a fixed price, which can be a real pain especially if your luggage is already in the trunk. Therefore, before getting in a cab, you should ask them to make sure they will provide you a meter based ride. If a particular driver refuses you, don’t worry. There are a lot of taxis in Bangkok. Just wait for the next one to come along.

        Taxi ID Number
        When you use a taxi, inside the cab you will see there are some little stickers on each door. It’s good practice to take a photo or make a note of the sticker which indicates the license number. In case anything happens, you can report it to the Department of Land Transport hotline number 1584.

 

Grab application that offers ride-hailing and ride sharing services

        Booking through Grab Application
        Some drivers are registered with booking applications like Grab. You can download these applications on both IOS and Android. There is information of the driver provided. It also provides the range of fees which show you how much it will cost, plus there are passenger promotions including a discount for first time use.
