Тиковый особняк Виманмек, Бангкок Teak Vimanmek mansion

Vimanmek Palace (Vimanmek Mansion) – one of the palaces in the complex of Dusit Palace. Although he Vimanmek Palace is not a Palace, but also the whole complex of Palace, Park and themed museums and exhibitions in the various buildings on site.

The center of the complex stands a three-storey Royal mansion Vimanmek Mansion, constructed entirely from teak wood. Previously it lived members of the Royal family, but it was located elsewhere and moved here later. It can be viewed from the inside, there are exposed furniture and objects belonging to the Royal family. As usual in such "wooden" areas that are all made without a single nail. It is also the largest building made of teak wood. In addition, you can visit: the exhibition of jewelry and articles of gold and silver in the throne Palace Abhisek Dusit Throne Hall (the entrance and pay him separately, 100 baht); an exhibition of fabrics; the Royal elephant Museum; special exhibitions of objects belonging to different members of the Royal family; an exhibition of photographs taken by king Bhumibol Adulyadej.

Hello. I want to consult on this issue. Planning a trip to Thailand. This will be my first independent trip abroad. Just flew to Turkey packet tours. And the question immediately arose - do I need to do insurance? And then I looked on the Internet how much it costs - the amount is not to say that a penny, while another franchise is. Here and think - does it make sense? And that means the beneficiary in the contract? This is the one who gets the insurance money? ...

And that means really working and not working? In almost all the insurance you can obtain assistance under the Treaty, they just (conditions of contract) must be observed. And there are Oh so many exceptions, which payment or treatment you receive, unless you carefully read and observed. Don't take the cheapest insurance, use the additional options on it (like driving a car, motorcycle, active sports).
As for your example... good for your neighbor, that nothing happened. And if it happens, then what? I too travel without insurance when one until sweeps, but always something can happen on it and the insurance. And with family travel must insure at least children always. ...
