I would not go to thailand without hepatitis A vaccination, you can get it from food or water. We europeans dont have natural immunity for it as most thais have.

Hepatitis A infection is a common infectious disease in many tropical countries. Thailand is an endemic area of this disease. Recommendation of hepatitis A infection has been set in many countries.

In Thailand, hepatitis A infection is still an important viral infectious disease due to the poor sanitation in some area. A recent study indicated that up to 97.0 % of the Thai adults had natural immunity to this disease.

As Venne says, the Hep vaccine is important, ice cream and seafood such as clams or other shellfish are possible sources of the infection. My liver will get enough abuse in Thailand without the need to add Hepatitus to the assault :)
