Making International Calls from Bangkok
In most cases, you will also need to dial an area code, and sometimes an additional city code.
The IDD Prefix (which stands for International Direct Dialing) is the code number needed to dial from that country to another. This is then followed by the country code for the international prefix of the country you are trying to call.
IDDs change regularly, and some countries have many, each being used by individual long-distance service providers.
The NDD is the National Direct Dialing code which is the access code you must use when making calls within that country from one city to another, such as from Pattaya to Bangkok.
This code is followed by the city/area code for the place you are trying to call.
Phone numbers are often written in this format: +44-(0)1224-XXXX-XXXX. This shows the numbers used for both international and national long-distance calls.
In the example, +44 indicates the country code, while (0) indicates the NDD. When dialling from outside the country, the NDD would not be used after dialling the country code; when dialling from within that country, the NDD would be used, but the country.
