If you are travelling to Thailand then following mobile apps will help make your travel hassle-free. I have prepared this list based on my travel experience in Thailand.

Google Translate

Be it talking to locals, negotiating for taxi, asking the price of fruit in market, Google Translate will come to your rescue. Even though Thailand is one of the most touristed destinations in the world you are going to face problem while communicating to Thai people in English.
Download Thai to English translation offline to save mobile data and it also ensures that you are good to go when there is no mobile data connectivity.

Google Maps

Google Maps is always the the go-to app when it comes to navigating to a place you have never been before and you want to follow the best route there. This app will also help you negotiate better for taxi and Tuk-Tuk as they would always claim that your destination is farther that it actually would be.
Remember to download offline map for the areas you are planning to visit for a seamless navigation experience.
