    You got dehydrated, you have to hydrate in hot and humid climates. Remember to use Gatorade to replenish electrolytes. Pedolyte is excellent for this also, especially for diabetics as it has no sugar. Jet lag, use local time the minute you arrive. If it’s noon, eat lunch. Midnight go to bed, ect. Be careful self diagnosing and using antibiotics. You don’t want to take them if you don’t need them. You can develop a tolerance or resistance. It will also kill off gut bacteria, which you really need in a new environment. Yogurt, if it has live cultures is really good for keeping your gut healthy. If you can start eating A Thai diet before you go. One last thing, vaccines, get them. Hope this advice helps. Good travels.

    It was nice seeing Kamala beach again. I've walked along the path several times for the food, but for swimming go just a little further up the road away from Phuket, and there's Surin beach. awesome crystal clear water with bigger waves to play in 🙂

    Hi Rob,
    Your videos are great, but when it comes to avoiding getting sick in Thailand, neither you, nor ANY of the people commenting below have mentioned getting the two essential vaccinations to safeguard against getting sick from tainted water or bad street food. Namely, a Typhoid vaccination for the water, and a Hepatitis A ( I think it's 'A' and not 'B', but I may be mistaken) for the food. Most street food is okay, but a couple of years ago I got sick from buying some fruit in the street, at least I think that was what caused it, and had to stay in my hotel room for two days for obvious reasons!
    I got my vaccinations from my local drug store here in Los Angeles, and they weren't cheap. About $120 each, and then you need to get a 'booster' vacc. a few months later which apparently lasts for life. But I've had no problems since.
    I'll be over again, probably in November, to get the rest of my dental work done in Bangkok ( implants and crowns), because it's a THIRD of the price it would have been in the USA, and the work is excellent. I'd better not mention the place I go to because I don't want to get you or I in trouble for advertising on Youtube. There have already been several videos about people taking 'medical vacations' in Thailand, i.e. paying for top class surgery, air fare, and hotel, and a great vacation afterwards, and still being thousands of dollars better off than if they'd had it done in the USA, so maybe your viewers might like a video from you on that subject?
    Take care, and keep up the great work!

    I have never been sick in Thailand because of food or water. In Sweden I eat Thai food 1-6 times a month with imported vegetables from Thailand, so if there is any bacterias there…I am used to it before I go to Thailand. But…I have never been sick in Sweden either when eating thai food at home or at restaurant 🙂

    There is a lot of good advise from folks on here to avoid getting sick.  You may be able to get Hep A vaccinated in your home country before your travels so keep that in mind also.  Most know not to drink the water, that includes ice in drinks and brushing your teeth with tap water.  The only water that can be 100% trusted is any carbonated product as then you are certain it has been boiled.  Avoid cold foods like salads and sliced fruit sold on the streets, stick with foods served piping hot for the lowest  chance of contamination.

    Yea Thai food when I arrive I'll always not shit for long time. Just now my shit was watery n kept rushing to toilet. I was eating a lot of eggs so cut that out n it's slowly getting better. Still don't see the amazement of living in Thailand just been to cheng mai now back in phitsanulok everywhere looks the same.

    You failed to mention that most of the time you get sick from the actual plane trip. I have travelled many times to Thailand and am always careful about washing my hands (antibacterial gel) and drinking lots of bottled WATER while on the plane. Almost always get a sinus infection and so get a prescription of antibiotics before the trip and start taking them 2 days before I leave. My last trip I had almost no sickness from the trip (just jet-lag). Your best tip was to increase your water intact as soon as you get there. Should drink at least 2-3 liters per day.
