I'm in pattaya on Soi Buakao. My address is something like

 

Sender Name

415 / 92 Soi Buakao

Apartment Name, Room Number

Pattaya, Chon Buri, 20150

Thailand

 

Real numbers not used. Are you guys saying it would be safe to change The street number and name line to:

 

415 Soi Buakao, Moo 92

 

 

No, this would be a different address.

The house number is 415/92, if you take it apart you change the house number.

 

 

A correct Thai address (outside of Bangkok) always looks like this:

[House number] Moo [Village number]

[Subdistrict (Tambon)] [District (Amphoe)] [Provice (Jangwat)] [Postal code]

 

A house number can be either just 123 or it can be 123/45.

If somebody builds a Moobaan or a Condo, all the houses or units get the same base house number, and different numbers after the slash.

 

Inside Bangkok the system is a bit different, they use "Ket" instead of Amphoe and "Kweng" instead of Tambon. Instead of "Moo X" they use the name of the street as part of the address.

Thank you. In that case, is the hyphen the safest option when the slash is a risk?

 

415 - 92 Soi Buakao

415 - 92 Soi Buakao

Probably, though you might want to try 415-92 Soi Buakao (with no spaces) so the '-' better emulates the use of the '/'

I've traced the problem to the Thai street address

I believe that the / (known as solidus) is not a permissible special character in street addresses in the US.

 

One solution might be to actually write the address. Ie. House 22, plot 7 etc or Apt. 44 , 143 Moo 5.

Instead of trying to be clever with "-" or "/"

 

Also add your what 3 words location in brackets somewhere to aid Thai Post.
