  1. Agoda thinks they are taking reservations.
  2. Drove past a T-T booth today. Believe they were showing 36.22 to the USD. 36.29 on a credit card purchase.
  3. A few years now but they had wanted to see a long stay visa/extension. Minor hiccup this year. Got my statement of deposits from the big office near Soi 6. Document checker at immigration says where is your certification letter from Bangkok Bank? No idea what he was talking about. He gives me a note and says go to the branch on Jomtien 2nd road. They knew what to do and produced the required letter in a few minutes for 100 baht. As far as I could tell it certified that I had an open account on that date.
  4. 33.43 today on an online credit card purchase.
  5. Only flown business class a few times cashing in frequent flyer miles. First time, on a Delta 767, was so uncomfortable I was glad to get back into an economy seat on the Narita-BKK leg. I was a big fan of Eva premium economy but it still looks problematic to transit Taiwan.
  6. Looking at Singapore for round trip BKK-US and seeing good fares. It would be a long routing but figure they would be as good as anyone for refunds if the world flips over again.
  7. Having your government check deposited to a Thai account does facilitate your retirement extension. On the other hand the day will probably come that I still need the money but can't make it to the bank.
  8. Partial answer, high limit credit card as part of your out the door kit.
  9. Possibly 6/1. I know you have to walk a little bit further north to get to Soi 6.
  10. The good folks at the Bangkok Bank main office opposite Soi 7 knew what I needed for immigration and generated the required document.
  11. My eyes glaze over every time I read discussions about the requirements for the 800K in the bank. The 65K+ a month hasn't been a problem. My one concern is the US imposed requirement that my monthly check go to a direct deposit account which I can't access electronically. The day will come, hopefully later than sooner, that I can't make it to the bank but will not yet have made the final visa run.
  12. Probably not the best source. I haven't seen this elsewhere including groups and pages where the vaccine mandate is a live bone of contention.
  13. They were giving sinopharm at the indoor sports stadium last week. GF said at least it wasn't Sinovac.
  14. I saw a FB post saying you can get an international certificate with (I think) the hospital certificate, passport and air tickets. It listed where to get the certificate in Bangkok and said it would be someplace in the provinces. That's about how nonspecific it was.
  15. Made the trip to MedPark in Bangkok for the second Pfizer jab. Got this letter size certificate of vaccination.
