To avoid problems with mosquito's keep door closed in the evening when lights are on. Mosquito repellent like " Jaico " (a roll-on in light green small bottle ) or sprays can be used. Alternativ you can use "mosquito coil" to keep the mosquito away when you are at the balcony. You will find all these products in the local shops or supermarkets.
Clothes to bring
Don't forget - you will fly to a warm country, so bring just a few light clothes. One long shirt, or even a light jacket, one pair long throusers and some solid shoes, which you maybe wearing during the flight already, are generally enough. Because, here in Thailand you can buy everywhere shirts, short-pants, sarongs, skirts, slippers, etc., which are very cheap available. Nice as a souvenir, too.
