Important numbers

The area code for Bangkok is 02. You only need to dial the 0 if you’re calling from within Thailand. Pay phones are not very common, as most Thais have mobile phones. If you want to avoid high roaming costs, you can buy a local SIM card for 100 baht or less. The 100 baht is not just for the SIM card, but is immediately your first pre-paid amount. Topping it up is easy; just walk into a 7-Eleven convenience store and ask for a “top up” with the amount of baht you want to add.
