DTAC, Thailand’s mobile telecom service provider offers a prepaid SIM card specifically for tourists visiting Thailand. The product called DTAC Happy Tourist SIM is similar to the 3G Tourist Inter SIM sold by True Move in Thailand. Happy Tourist SIM is sold in four variants – 49 THB, 199 THB, 299 THB, and 599 THB. All these tourist SIM variants offer some free call credit or some free internet or both. Special international call rates via the DTAC 00400 service are available on all these four variants. In addition to these prepackaged SIM cards, DTAC also offers regular top-up based packages for tourists who plan to stay longer in Thailand or need more data or talktime. Details of all these SIM variants and other packages are given below…

49 THB TOURIST SIM

The 49 THB variant comes with free 15 THB talk value valid for 35 days from activation. There is a 15 THB call credit to be used within the validity of the SIM. The validity and call credit can be added by doing a top-up at a Family Mart or 7-Eleven shop. Data packs can be added to the 49 THB SIM as under:

2.5 GB for 30 days – 320 THB – Dial code *104*353# after doing a top-up of 320 THB or more

4.5 GB for 30 days – 427 THB – Dial code *104*21# after doing a top-up of 427 THB or more

9 GB for 30 days – 748 THB – Dial code *104*344# after doing a top-up of 748 THB or more

Promotional call tariffs enable users to make local calls within Thailand at 0.99 THB per minute.Local SMS and MMS can be sent at 3 or 5 THB per SMS/MMS.

IDD (international calls) to Mainland China and India can be made at 1 THB (China) and 3 THB (India) per minute respectively. To get the special rates, one needs to dial 00400 + Country Code + Area Code + Phone Number.

Internet after using the free data can be very expensive at 2 THB per MB so in case of need, do a data top-up as suggested above for the 49 THB SIM.

Where To Buy

Finding this SIM card on the streets of Thailand or even at mobile SIM shops is not easy. According to the company, the Happy Tourist SIM is available at 7-Eleven, Family Mart stores and other SIM shops. From my experience I can tell that these 7-Eleven type of shops are rarely interested in selling new SIM cards but only agree to do a top-up.

DTAC Happy Tourist SIM can be purchased at the followign Thai International Airports:

– Suvarnabhumi Airport DTAC Shop at Arrival Hall 2nd Floor, Gate No. 7
– Don Mueang Airport on the Ground Floor before exiting the terminal building
– Phuket International Airport Terminal 2 Ground Floor
– Samui International Airport, Arrival Hall, 1st Floor
