The Phuket News website said the rapper arrived in Thailand Tuesday night.
According to the newspaper, he will be filming a music video at Phuket. He is scheduled to perform at the Together Festival in Bangkok on Saturday.
Snoop Dogg had a strong influence on so-called Gangsta rap during the 1990s. He is better known currently in the United States, however, as a prodigious user of marijuana.
