Imagine having no WiFi during your trip when you desperately need to use Google Maps or post something on your Instagram Story. That could be a nightmare for many of you.

Renting a Pocket WiFi in Thailand
It is safe to make a reservation for the pocket WiFi to be sure they’re not all booked-up. You can secure your pocket WiFi by paying in advance online.
After you book online, you can simply pick up the device at the airports in Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi Airport, Don Mueang Airport), and return it afterward.
Even though you pick it up and return it in Bangkok, the internet connections are available throughout Thailand, which makes things easier for those planning a trip to the other areas where WiFi access can be non-existent.
All about the Pocket WiFi rental service in Thailand
1) Which pocket WiFi service should I use?
Wi-Ho WiFi is one of the most recommended services in Thailand. I personally tried their pocket WiFi, and it was fast and stable at all times. It was easy to connect, and fast enough to stream videos and even have a video chat. The best part is not only they offer unlimited data, but their coverage is also all over Thailand.
2) Pocket WiFi vs. SIM card, which one should I choose?
To have an internet connection in Thailand, you have 2 options: SIM card and pocket wifi. Both have their pros and cons. See the table below and find out which option is more suitable for you!
|Pocket WiFi||Sim Card|
|Pros||• Unlimited data usage|
• No need to swap your Sim card

• No need to carry an extra device
|Cons||• Need to carry an extra device|
