Travel Safety and Transport around Thailand

When traveling around Thailand, we recommend using the Skyscanner App to find cheap flights all over the country and Bookaway or 12Go website so you can pre-book boats, buses and ferries.

In terms of safety, traveling around Indonesia is relatively safe but just to be sure, make sure you have travel insurance during your trip. We recommend World Nomads mainly because they cover a lot of adventure activities like diving, snorkeling, etc. For a budget-friendly alternative, check out Safety Wing.
