    Make sure you get a seat up front.  Those rear a/c vents are useless. Would also give you a chance to interview the driver with questions such as “how is the tread on the tires?” , “what’s the fastest you have ever driven?” , “how many M-150s do you usually drink per day?”

    Lmao, thanks i'll keep that in mind. Hopefully i'll get a chance to ask those questions😂

    Are you planning on bringing the car into Cambodia?  I’d check into the restrictions on that too.  Personally, if I was going to do a video documenting a visa run, I’d want to film it in its truest form.  A bunch of sweaty foreigners crammed into a minivan hurtling itself down the highway at dangerous speeds.

    LOOLL, i guess that would make the best footage..

     

     

    and thanks i'll look into it.

    Hi, i'm on multiple entry currently and need to do a visa run. Considering it costs 1900 baht for the 1 month extention, i'm assuming this is a great price. The next time around, i want to do the run myself by renting a car and videoing the entire experience. Would that cost me more or less? Considering you can get a car rental for 700 to 1000 baht and do i need to stay out of country for a certain period of time or can i just return back right away?

     

    I'm canadian btw and here's the link to the visa run website.

    Thanks!


  4. Hi guys, I figured some of you might have girlfriends or know someone that's interested in a masseuse job. 

     

    Pay is 200 baht per day plus 50% of all massages. If the girl wishes to live at the shop, she's required to pitch in cleaning and rent is 900 baht per month. The job starts at 1:30 pm to 3 am. The shop is currently short on staff so i don't think they get a day off but you can work those details out. 

     

    Experience: It's best if you have experience and already know how to massage, but training can be given for a cost of around 3000 baht(check with owner exact cost).

     

    The girl should be 19+ and fairly fit and attractive. 

     

    Shop name: Maya Healthy Massage

    Contact: 082-9841416 or 062-2018679

    Location: 2nd road.

     

    You can call or go in person. 

     

    Good luck and feel free to post any questions here!

    If you have a Visa or Mastercard debit card for your bank account....Take your card & passport to a Bangkok bank that has currency exchange - several in CM.....

    Go to the teller & tell them you want a cash advance.....They will run the card and give you the cash....They will make a copy of your passport for you to sign across as well as the debit card receipt to sign.....

     No charges from Bangkok bank but your home bank might charge a fee.....

     Good up to 400k.....

     I've done it many times......

    Oh great, thanks i'll do that!


  7. Hi, I need to withdraw 100k baht from my scotiabank chequing account. I went to multiple banks but they said they aren't able to do it and that i should just use the atm and pay the fee everytime which is 220 baht. The problem is that i can only withdraw 11k baht per my bank limit and even if i have it raised, the atm only allows 20k to 30k baht per transaction. I went to weston union, they said they require the debit card to have the owners name on the card. Scotiabank debit cards don't have that. They weren't sure about the limit of how much i can withdraw at once anyway. 

     

    Is there any solution to this? Any special bank that can work this out? Should I call my bank and see if they can arrange something? or Is there a way to send money cheaply to a friend who has a thai bank account? (The person is thai) Using this method i probably will not pay any fee or very little, under 100 baht i think.

    I once got a Thai tourist visa issued in Phnom Penh that stated that my nationality is Khmer. That was good for a laugh, but didn't cause any issues when entering the country. I'd go as far as saying that the IO probably didn't even notice it, and as long as they don't scan the machine readable data on the visa and let the computer compare that to your passport details (that they do scan), such a birthday mismatch shouldn't matter either.

    Wow haha I guess they do so many that mistakes happen. Thanks for the help!


  9. A friend is travelling to Bkk from india and his date of birth is off by 2 days. He's travelling within a day or 2. Should he risk it and travel given that he can just provide ID and his passport itself will have his correct information? or should he re apply. It'll take another week for him to get his information corrected and will miss his current schedule. Thanks for answering.

    Hi, 

    Any suggestions for what might be least expensive? 

    I checked a few, most were upwards of 2000 baht ... Hat Yai/Kuala Lumpur, Mae Hong Son/Yangon, Udon Thani/Vientiane ... 

    Thanks,

    DS

    Type (DMK) to (KOS) flights in google then click flights below the google search bar and then choose one way. It should be a little over 1000 baht with service fee 1100ish. While you're processing they'll add luggage and insurance which will increase the cost but you can cancel it.

    The websites aren't always reliable and up to date so it's worth calling them first, if applying by post. If you're going to apply in person you can show them the flight to Thailand, and although the onward flight you've already booked would be superfluous based on the website it should satisfy them if they want to see your first planned exit.

    You're right a 100%, always good to be safer than sorry. I was just re confirming it can be used as an exit re-entry since i was confused about being able to get a visa from the cambodian airport. Someone answered that question. Thank you for all your help,elviajero!

    In short, yes you will need a ticket out, to be sure if embassy, consulate, airline or Immigration suddenly feel the need to ask for it. You are the one that make a choice of putting yourself on the safe side, with no possibilities for hick-ups. However, it will be perfect with a cheap ticket to a most nearby country, sometimes even with possibility to cancel once you are here.

    You're right, better be on the safe side. I booked a cheap flight so i don't mind even if it's not used. It serves its purpose just by reducing or eliminating risk.

    The Toronto consulate website suggests they will accept just a flight to Thailand.

     

    http://thaiconsulatetoronto.com/visas.php

    "For the METV a paper copy of your flight itinerary must be submitted showing at least the applicant's first entry into Thailand. "

    Ah I see, i guess i didn't need to book the outgoing flight to get the visa but i guess it can still be used in case i want to just use it as an exit-reentry after the 60 day period.

    You seriously do not want to go to Sihanoukville. It has been completely taken over by Chinese. No hotels, restaurants etc left that cater to westerners. Many of the Chinese establishments refuse to serve non Chinese. The beach is polluted..raw sewage dumped by the casinos etc.

    I'll probably just throw it away but if i end up using it as a exit and re entry after my 2 months stay in thailand can i just book another flight out right away out of that airport without leaving the airport at all? is there a minimum stay requirement?

    You can get Cambodian visa on arrival at any border crossing as well as the airports.

    You can also get an evisa in advance but it can only be used at I think 2 border crossings (Poipet and Koh Kong) and the airport. Saves a full page in your passport.

    Oh perfect, Sihanoukville (KOS) should work then! Thanks!

    Many embassies and consulates have that on their websites but will accept a one way ticket out of the country.

    Great! Also, I booked a throwaway flight to Sihanoukville (KOS) cambodia, and cambodia requires visa for entry and according to google, you can only get a visa from Phnom Penh & Siem Reap if you plan to get it upon arrival by air. Will this be an issue if i plan to throw it away or just use the ticket as a exit-reentry into thailand by later just booking another flight back same day from that airport to thailand?
