thailand LINE is a freeware application for instant communication. In addition, users can exchange texts, videos, audios and image and can conduct free calls similar to WhatsApp. However, in Thailand people tends to use LINE rather than WhatsApp because of the ability to use both emojis and stickers as a way to express themselves than typing. For these reasons, you definitely should have LINE Apps on your phone during your holiday, it would be a good way to stay contact with the locals. Users: iOS, Android thailandthailand

2. Eatigo

Famous products brands include Apple, Samsung, Rolex can be found in the app. Moreover, most of the categories of products from clothes to baby foods to home appliances are can be found in Lazada. Basically, any brands you can think of that can be found on Amazon website are likely can be found in Lazada also. So why should I have Lazada when I already have Amazon?

5. Food Panda

6. Uber

It's much more convenient and you don't need to move yourself to wait for an available taxi at midday outside in the hot weather. Who would want to do that right? Users: iOS, Android thailandthailand

7. Grab

thailand Grab is similar to Uber in many ways and it is their main competitor. It also a transportation network company but they also provide a feature that doesn't exist in Uber which is called GrabBike. GrabBike is a feature in the app that allows you to request a motorbike taxi instead of a car. This can be very convenient and useful in the early morning when you are late for something important and do not want to be stuck in traffic for example. In my opinion, you should download both Uber and Grab so you have taxi options. Try it yourself to see which one you like more! Users: iOS, Android thailandthailand

8. Trip Advisor

For example, you can check the reviews of hotels before you book any hotels. The app could save you a lot of money and any potential disappointments. Users: iOS, Android thailandthailand
