Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

For my next trip in Pattaya, I will bring about 3000€ and it seems safety box in hotel are not always safe, so I plan to open an account in a thai bank when I come the first day and put money there.

I would like to know if it is easy, free and quick to do ?

 

 

If anyone has some experience to share....

 

Thank you.

Cheers.

If the bank isn't busy it should take no more than 10 minutes and probably less than that.

Im thinking about opening a thai bank account too when i arrive on friday. ive never done it before but with what ive read it seems quite simple. So you just go to the bank with passport and in my case my condo number and i can put all my AUD in the one go in the bank account? and i can then withdrawl using a thai atm card? so i guess when your going home you just go back to the bank and say you want to close it and they will take the rest of your funds out in bht? or you just gop and withdrawl it all out yourself using your atm card?

 

cheers

Its a Thai account so change your money into baht first then pay it in when the account is open. At the end of your trip just leave a few hundred baht in there and then you can either wire your money over for your next trip (you get a slightly better rate) or just pay your spending money in again when you come back.

 

You have to leave a couple of hundred in though if you want to keep the account open as there is an annual fee for the account.

Depending on how much you are changing that may not be a good idea.

 

Last night the best rate I found for cash Euros was 39.85 on soi Buakow

 

This morning Kbank were offering 39.35

 

OK, on 100E I wouldnt lose any sleep over the difference (though it is the price of a decent Thai meal) but on a few thousand?

opened one last year in kasikorn bank big c branch on 2nd road just with my passport... they set you up an online account as well at the same time... had to pay a small fee for the ATM card... the ATM card is issued starightaway as well and they take you outside to set up a pin on the ATM machine... spot on service...

I opened a Thai bank account in August 2008 with the Siam Commercial Bank(SCB). It was fairly straight forward. I have just got back home after spending Christmas and New Year in Pattaya. Before I flew out I transferred my holiday into my SCB bank account and it only took 3 working days to arrive in the account. So whenever I needed some money I used my SCB ATM card to get money out of there ATM machines,

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
