Take or Not?

I read it somewhere in one of these topics in the Thailand section, that you should take toilet paper to Thailand as it is not supplied everywhere you go.
I took some with me last year when I went to Vietnam, and as it turned out I didn't need it at all, as the public loos and the places we stayed in provided it.
I just don't want to carry things that are not really needed that take up space in my case or backpack.
I suppose if this is the only problem I have I'm really doing well. LOL

Don't worry. The trend in guest houses in Thailand and Laos is to include toilet paper in the bathroom, although you'll still encounter a few places that don't - particularly those with a shared bath. Even so, toilet paper is inexpensive and available for purchase everywhere, so no need to import your own supply. It is a good idea to have a small pack of tissues with you at all times (available to the counter of any 7/11-style store), for clean up as needed. You also might want to have a supply of moist towelettes just in case, and waterless soap can come in handy too if there isn't a wash up spot where you are or to clean up a bit before meals. Cheers.

Thanks exacto,
I thought probably as much. That waterless soap is great too.
Thanks again.

Always carry a roll for those unexpected visits to the can on buses, trains, in restaurants, etc., but as mentioned above, don't bother bringing any unless you have a favourite brand. My favourite Thai brand of bog roll is "Sit and Smile".
