Phoning

If you wish to make an overseas call, you have to first dial 001, which is Thailand's international access code. You then dial the country code, area code and the number of the person you wish to call.

Economy Call: You can also use 001 809 as Thailand's international access code, by doing so, you can save up to 40%. Although voice quality is not good as dialing 001, it's fine for most cases.

For example, if you make a call to Sydney, Australia, telephone number 123 4567 you can dial 001 61 2 123 4567 or 001 809 61 2 123 4567.
