Hi all, need some advice.  I am in Thailand currently on a tourist visa, i need to open a bank account to transfer money from the UK. I went to Bangkok Bank who advised that I need a letter of reference from my Embassy (British Embassy).  When i called the embassy they said it's not a service they provide!  Can anyone offer advice on what to do or have been in the same situation or which other banks accept people on tourist visa?
