If you will be visiting Thailand and buying a Thai SIM card while you are here, you may also want to know if that same SIM card will work in Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar and Malaysia.
After all, many visitors to Thailand spend time in neighboring countries as well.
If you travel a lot, you also may not want to spend money on a Thai SIM card if you cannot use it in other Asian countries, or in Europe or North America.
Thankfully, you don’t have to worry about either of these scenarios as, yes, you can buy a Thailand SIM card that works in other countries after you leave Thailand.
In fact, two SIM cards from DTAC and AIS offer a variety of options. Depending on the countries you will be traveling to outside Thailand, and how much data you need.
DTAC Go Travel SIM card
The DTAC Go Travel SIM card works in many other countries. Depending on the package you use and how much you are willing to spend.
A basic DTAC Go Travel SIM package starts at just 99 baht. That card can be used in Thailand, and also in the neighboring countries of Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar and Malaysia.
The basic card gives you 2GB of data, and is valid for 7 days once you activate it.
Other DTAC Go Travel SIM cards allow you to use your phone in most of Asia, the U.S. and Australia for 399 baht for 10 days, or all over the world for 899 baht for 15 days.
Price-wise, that means DTAC does offer a pretty good deal.
