* You can '''buy birth control pills''' in nearly all the pharmacies (excluding herbal pharmacies) in Bangkok. Some reputable pharmacies are Boots, Watsons, P&F, Fascino, Siam Pharmacies and the Chulalongkorn University Pharmacy. Buying from pharmacies that have air conditioning is recommended since the drugs are better preserved in cooler environments. For local recommendations on which hospitals/clinics to visit for consultations, visit our city pages, like the [[Bangkok]] and [[Chiang Mai]] pages.
