room safe is fine , I've never had an issue or met anyone who had a problem

 

 

although if you see a cleaning lady carrying a potato , inform the management ... ;) 555

If it floats, flies or fucks It's probably cheaper to rent ...

For you to become total paranoia here it is; i try it but could not do , maybe i cook the potato to long :GoldenSmile1: , a trick you can use , but is not nice to do , is when really in need and much money in your safe .......locktide glue in the keylock .....so no key can go in anymore , but you better take next time other hotel :Think1:

The idea I like is to open a bank account for your cash ( Kbank is ok, there's a thread on that somewhere on PA ) and the room safe is ok for documents and things of personal value to you and no value to others. Maybe depending on the amount of cash you are bringing with you but the money in the bank option does save you from some degree of stress.

personally i prefer front desk safes where you can put your own padlock on.   Roomsafes can be opened by even an amateur thief or anyone with a masterkey, or the mastercode .. or anyone whos watched the mastercode be typed in... or anyone with a potatoe handy.

O you who turn the wheel and look to windward, Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and tall as you.

split between room , front office safe & your luggage. I never keep all my cash in one place. For the Front office safe , I keep a sheet of paper on top with the current amount inside. I keep some cash bundled inside a dirty pant or shirt. Room safe for documents and minimum cash to operate with a bg in the room.

Is credit card and withdrawal of whatever needed an option? then you are free for worries

I opened mine at Kasikorn bank 2 years ago with just my passport and using Page 10 hotel as my address without any problems. From memory I think the cost of opening the account was 750 baht. If things have changed since then I'm sure someone can point any changes out. [emoji4]

I have a k- bank account also. For travelling I also have a pacsafe portable safe. I have never had a problem with an in room safe.

The reception safes are also a good bet.

pretty cool option for travelling. Is basically a canvas bas lined with heavy mesh on a locking cable. Bolt cutters will get through but everything else is safe.

The point in reception lockers is that they're relatively small, would just take your passport and cash but no room for laptop, tablet,..

 

One more thing is you'll be monitored by all staff and everybody at the reception whenever you take money from the locker (I wouldn't be surprised if someone came and asked me: sir, you used to take 200€, why today 300€? Are you going to BF two ladies :D)

After checking different vids on youtube on how to open a roomsafe, i think it is safe to say they are not that safe a safe :Think1:

 

Pacsafe looks like a good option though.

Just notice that safe in most YouTube videos are way old versions, I tried the potato trick in Areca's and Page10 electronic safes but never worked, not saying they're 100% safe but not that easy peasy.

Bring you're own MINISAFE is the best option. And do not put all in one place ( second advice ).

 

Make some picture before closing the vault from content. Use creativity and Imagination and you will be fine.

 

Make copy all you're 1000 baht billets 55555 the real one in the safe and use copy while you travel around. 55555

Yes the rules changed early this year.  Even with a 60 day tourist visa you can't open Kasikorn account.  Apparently you need over 2 months in country to qualify now.

My Pattaya budget is perfectly adequate as long as I don't spend any of it

Get a travel visa card and load your money on it. You can have additional card and keep them separate. I also lock in the exchange rate. I keep laptop and docs in safe and normally hide money in room like in ceiling. Just don't get so drunk you forget it or I might find it....

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
