eSIM for Thailand – why?
Why not get connected the moment you land? With an eSIM purchased in advance, you can switch on your data just after touch down, like the locals.
It is inevitable to need to stay connected throughout our travels, especially in a foreign country like Thailand in which we will rely on virtual mapping and communication services to get around. eSIMs, or embedded SIMs, serve all the same purposes as physical SIMs, except they are completely virtual! You would simply purchase one online from a phone carrier in Thailand, which we wrote a detailed article about here, and after receiving a QR code to scan, you could easily install a connection on your phone without having interacted with an actual vendor.
