Hey Shane, I didn't but a sim, I just used wifi to email, viber for txt/calls, go on the net etc. I would not bother. There are plenty of wifi places to stay connected, just remember to turn off roaming when u arrive.

And sim cards are available in stores like 7-11? I heard they give out sim cards at the airport. What are those like? Do they have data?

Thanks!

yes sim cards are widely available at 7-11's, family marts, supermarkets etc etc. so widely available that if you cant be bothered looking then just stop in the street and yell " I need a sim card" and someone will appear instantly next to you with a selection to choose from. ;-)

. On arrival at the airport clear immigration, get your bags and clear customs, walk through the doors and into the arrival hall. to your right and straight ahead is a small 7-11 type shop that has all the sim cards available for sale.

so does that shop at the airport carry the Happy Internet Sim cards for 69baht and are they 69baht or more because it is at the airport? I want to get one when I get there and it would be easier for me if I could get it there as we will get in late and then have to get to Kata, plus hotel is up a steep hill.

Is this shop at the airport before you get to the money changers?
