  1. Good point. I had mine set up and activated when I opened my account. Not sure if you need to go to your original branch when you set up your account. TIT. I really like this feature.
  2. I also have a Kasikorn account with the mobile app on my smartphone. The careless feature is great imo. Uses scan technology. No need to carry a card and worry about losing it, leaving in the ATM, phishing etc.
  3. Agree with the above post. It doesn’t bother me. It usually isn’t that much and doesn’t happen that often. I’ve made more money than most Thais (most westerners have) so can afford it. Their country, their rules. Get with the program or leave.
  4. It does take a special breed to be in the bars day after day. I couldn’t do it myself, but nothing against those who do. It also appears to be not very secure career wise. Changing bars every few years (or more often). No real job security, pension, 401k or equivalent. Pretty much a day to day, hand to mouth existence. Then they wake up one day, older, no longer marketable and little if any money saved. Living the dream.
  5. Agree with the above post and many older units have larger balconies. The key is to find one that’s been updated.
  6. I have come across a good deal on an auto purchase from a local Pattaya Thai. I have my Thai drivers license, residence certificate and retirement visa. They have the paperwork for the vehicle. I’m curious if there’s a link for the buying procedure. My first auto purchase in Pattaya. Or is there any third party agencies to bring all requirements and have them complete the transfer and ensure everything in accordance to Thai law. I’ll pay the fee to avoid dealing with DLT office. Thanks
  7. Ive never had to lie on my income verification. I have supporting documents to prove ready to show. Sounds like a good idea to me. Keep out some of the riff raff that should not be here anyway.
  8. I'm into nonfiction. Mostly military history, U.S. Civil War, Philippine Insurrection, China, WW2 (Pacific).
  9. Google "St Brendan Isle mail forwarding". I don't need their service yet but when and if I do they would be my first choice. They are based out of Florida and work alot with full time RV people, yachtsman, merchant mariners etc. They also have the physical address you want and can use them as your state domicile.
  10. Not a problem if you file and pay your taxes like the majority of Americans do. While I don't like paying taxes as much as the next guy I do it anyway to avoid issues like the OP posted.
  11. To add to this, last week I was there for a seven-day extension on my 30 day visa on arrival. I use the private office next door for my photo and to fill out the forms. The immigration lady gave me 30 days versus the seven days I had requested. That was 30 days from when my original 30 day ended. The price was still 1900 baht. I must be hansum man.
