  1. I always call the market dep. in my transferring bank and ask for the best exchange rate which is always better than if I just perform the transfer through the net bank without to establish the exchange rate up front. I then transfer thb so this can be the reason for the low fee in the receiving bank (a fee of 1000thb only despite if I transfer 10k or 100k/thb).
  2. Every time I transfer from 100 - 150k I pay just 1000thb in fees to the receiving bank which is Siam Commercial Bank (SCB) which seems to be a fixed fee as I have also have paid 1000thb in fee for a transfer of 10.000thb. The fee I pay to my transferring bank is even less (equal to about 200thb). So 50usd pr transfer is far to much ... It seems to be worth to spend some time to shop around ...

The pepper spray is banned so it may help you against a dog attack, but you will be at risk to face a fine and confiscation of the spray - but a fine may be a better choice than the risk for rabies ...

  12. RE - What to do about tourists who break the traffic rules while renting vehicles in Thailand? The law has already been broken several times by the Thai owner of the rental shop before the renter has reached the road by not require a proper license and as well not having the motorbikes insured - maybe an idea to start where it all begins then you prevent the other issues to happen down the road ...
