Any things I should know?

Always carry toilet paper/tissue and hand sanitizer with you. This will be handy as some washroom facilities do not provide toilet paper. In a lot of the Thai style washroom facilities (squat toilet), you will see a water hose or bucket with water. It is for you to flush the toilet, and toilet paper is kept in a waste basket.
