At the Immigration Counter

Alan: Can I see your passport and arrival card, please?

Beth: Sure, here you are.

Alan: What is the purpose of your visit?

Beth: Tourism. I’m here on vacation.

Alan: How long do you plan to stay?

Beth: Maybe a week or 10 days.

Alan: You understand you are not permitted to work here, right?

Beth: Yes. I’m just here to relax on a vacation.

Alan: Very good. Here is your passport. Enjoy your stay.

Beth: Thank you very much. Bye.

Asking to Share a Taxi.

Beth: Excuse me, are you going to Khao San Road?

Shimmi: Yes, I am. How did you know?

Beth: Many travellers go there looking for cheaper hotels.

Shimmi: Are you going there too?

Beth: Yes, I am. Do you mind if we share a taxi?

Shimmi: That’s a good idea. It will be cheaper if we share.

Beth: Ok. Let’s go. We can get a taxi right across the street.

Finding Hotels.

Shimmi: Do you know any good hotels around?

Beth: I asked my friend before leaving San Francisco. He said I would find some nice hotels on Khao San Road.

Shimmi: I think we should just get out of the taxi and walk around a bit.

Beth: Yeah. I just hope they are not full. We should’ve made reservations online.

Shimmi: The cheapest hotels don’t even have a website. Don’t worry. I’m sure we’ll find one.

The Outdoor Market.

Alana: Can you tell me where to go for the best shopping?

Hotel clerk: Sure, you must go to Chatuchak market. We also call it JJ market.

Alana: How can I get there? Can you get me a taxi?

Hotel clerk: Just take the skytrain. Get off at Mo Chit station. It’s easy to reach.

Alana: Great, so how do I find the outdoor market?

Hotel clerk: It’s right there at the skytrain station. It’s too big to miss.

Alana: Sounds easy. Thanks!

Hotel clerk: You’re welcome.
