THAI // Basic Words + Phrases for Travelers

Jack teaches you key Thai words and phrases for travelers!

Please note: These are just basics for people who would like to know a few key words and phrases while traveling. They are broken down into their simplest forms for quick learning. There are some things that are complex and take longer to learn, such as the subtleties between R and L, D and T, as well as B and P, all of which are interchanged often when using the English alphabet. So please just take this for what it is - quick traveler lingo! Happy travels!

We also filmed a video about Thai culture!

5 Basic Thai Phrases To Know Before Arriving in Thailand

Download your free MP3 here:

Before I left to live in Thailand I was concerned as to whether I should learn some basic Thai language before I arrived.

I ended up arriving to the country with no comprehension of the language at all, but after living there for some time, I got the basics of the language down. This is the video I wish I would have watched beforehand to get a brief and VERY VERY basic primer on the thai language.

Co van Kessel Bangkok tours guide

by Co van Kessel Bangkok Tours.

Looking for an authentic and unique adventure? Co van Kessel bike tours and boat tours provides a refreshing alternative to the tired tourist experience. We do not battle the crowds at clichéd destinations promoted in guide books, but turn your attention to quaint local communities and charming excursions into the fascinating lifestyle and culture of real Thai people. Every day is different and every tour is a surprise as we focus not on destinations, but lose ourselves in the enchantment of the journey itself.

Co van Kessel, an innovative and adventurous Dutchman, pioneered bicycle tours in Bangkok more than 30 years ago. As a longtime resident and self-professed lover of Bangkok, he understood very well the picture of accelerated urban development (gridlocked traffic, concrete towers, and choking pollution) that has plagued the recent image of the city. He also had a hunch that this was not what Bangkok or Thailand was all about.

Making it his goal to re-discover Bangkok, Co spent thousands of hours on his mountain bike exploring the vast network of local streets, alleyways, footpaths and canals between the main urban thoroughfares. What he found, lurking behind the facade of modernization, were hidden worlds of peace and tranquility, a picture of “real” Thai life that has remained unchanged for countless decades; an identity of a city that is true to the Thai people, yet largely unknown to outsiders.

Whether it’s the colorful sights and smells of the local markets, the fascinating life of locals along the canals, or the surprising existence of bountiful green belts, Co discovered the essence of what makes Bangkok one of Asia’s most captivating cities. Since then, it has been his mission to share these discoveries with the rest of the world.

What we do

Our mission at Co van Kessel Bangkok Tours is to provide our guests with a singularly unique travel experience in Thailand. All our tours use Co’s extensive topographical knowledge of the greater Bangkok area as well as his keen eye for the interesting to take you where nobody else can or will.

We aim not to bore you with talk, but to immerse you in an experience where your individual fascinations emerge.

Bicycles, boats, and our feet become the tools we use to gain access to the previously inaccessible, behind-the-scenes lifestyle of the Thai. Here the roots of an ancient culture will become evident in a way you never could have imagined.

5 Bangkok Travel Tips You Should Know (How to Get Out of Airport, Where to Exchange Money, Etc)

How to VAT Refund in Bangkok:

My stay here is in Citadines Sukhumvit Soi 16. This is a company paid stay so this was their choice. There are so much more great hotels in Bangkok and the prices are relatively cheap! I suggest you stay near a BTS station. If you are after city center, stay in Siam area. But if you are in a romantic getaway, find a hotel near Chao Phraya river, and have a river cruise! Enjoy the amazing Thai food: Pad Thai, Masaman curry, Satay, Papaya salad, Thai milk tea,, yummmm! Have a great time at the temples but stay hydrated and wear comfortable shoes! Bangkok is a shoppers paradise too!

About Me:

My name is Kevin Cook. I'm originally from Dallas, TX, but I've been living and traveling in Asia since 2013.

After graduating from university in 2011 and working a few unfulfilling jobs, I saved enough money to move to Asia and work as a teacher for a few years. That opportunity allowed me to travel around and experience new foods and cultures, and ignited a passion for blogging and making videos.

Now I travel full-time and make videos with the goal that I can encourage YOU to pursue your own dream of overseas traveling and living.
