Can anyone recommend me branches in Chiang Mai that recently were not too difficult about opening a Savings account?
I am on a non-o visa based on a child, didn't do the residence certificate yet as I need this for something else too (or would a copy do?)

Purpose of opening is for depositing the monthly required income and get the yearly extension done in 3 months.
I currently only have BKK accounts and would like a local one here, also due to fees and it being clean of history, could do a 100K cash deposit if that helps.

I'll buy a coffee or beer for the one that saves me time going to 10 branches. If possible Bangkokbank or Kasikornbank.

for anyone opening a bank account in Thailand don't forget to shave and to dress nicely. no sandals or shorts or tee shirts. like a important business meeting.

 

and say this "i need to deposit one million baht into a new saving account. can you help me?"

The kasikorn on Chiang Klan is my branch, they are very farang friendly and open accounts in 10minutes.

Always empty, no queing over 2 minutes ever.

I think the staff are bored thats why they do anything,

If you have an active BK Bank account  should be no problem opening a new one here... I would suggest Airport Plaza as it is close to Immigration - KSK is farang friendly but I would not bank on anything inside KSK staying open long term...

I've found the SCB & BKK banks at the Mae Hia Big C to be convenient, giving good service....

That BKK bank branch is not large & sometimes queuing takes awhile (25%).....The SCB is larger and quicker....

Service is good at both....

Main Bangkok Bank Branch @ Chiang Mai gate. Farang friendly, English speaking staff, quick, professional. Easy as in January 2019.

 

Depends where you'll be residing I guess.

Dont need to worry about fees. Just download the banking app on your smart phone, and you can make cardless withdrawals from the ATM.
