Nakhon Sawan News


Recommended Posts

Looks like the Visa place has changed it's rules.

Previously if you had a Deposit account with at least 800th in it you didn't need a bank letter to confirm when you wanted to do a new 1 year retirement visa. NOW seems you do. How long this has been going Buddha only knows.

I know it wont affect a lot of peeps just a heads up if your one of us.

H/M.

Fred.

Seedy, I agree with Bill above. In practice this forum covers various items relevant to Nakhon Sawan and Kamphaeng Phet and nearby areas. As far as I know it is the only forum that covers these

But then many of us would not know what is going on in the area. Just because it says Nakhon Sawan news does not only mean Nakhon Sawan. From Wikipedia Nakhon Sawan (Thai: นครสวรรค์) is one of the

Every year since it opened when I renew my extension at NS immig I have always had to supply a letter from my bank confirming the account number and that there is 800k in the account, in fact going back to Soi Suan Pluu days I had to have a letter!!!

Maybe I am missing something in your post Fred!!!

Last year they told a few friends & myself that we didn't need a letter if we had a Deposit account with at least the 800th in same. That's provided the book had been made up on the day.

I had a letter but they didn't look at it.

My friend went last week and they told him this time that he now needed a letter for his deposit Acc:

Not a problem he just went to the local branch and after a bit of faffing around they got one sent from BKK head office.

Well saying not a problem took a few hours. Mainly because BKK put the wrong account No: on it.

I have always required a bank letter for a Savings/Standard Acc:

Only put the OP in just in case like myself & several peeps I know thought that they wouldn't require one.

Sorry to say that my royal status (By Marriage) doesn't give me any form of Reductions/Dispensations. Have tried on many occasions but alas no joy. Dash pore show if you ask me.

While I'm at it Bill the elder. How's the water supply there???

A few week ago went with Bill the younger to view his new bit of land. He looks like he wont have any problems water wise with that as is right along the side of the Ping river.

Just a thought he might be able to supply you with even cheaper water than myself!!!

But don't count on it as he has already put signs on the frontage stating the fishing costs.

H/M.

Fred,

Plenty of water in the Ping. All Bill needs to do is make his way through the local dog packs that line the access road and then he has a choice-negotiate with my powerful Samoan gamekeeper for access or deal with the local fishermen/river pirates that seem to have sequestered the common river frontage at the end of the road. After filling his truck and, assuming the vehicle still has sufficient wheels and fuel for the journey after interacting with the locals then it should be a short 60km jaunt back to his house.

Couldn't be easier.

Evening young Bill

I used to do that from the local klong years ago but I cannot any more as the klong is reduced to a collection of puddles and the water does not flow any more.

Bill the Elder,

Nice bit of kit you have there. Did you make it yourself?

How is the current water situation at your house? At Khlong Nam Lai they are still pumping ground water which actually seems to be better than other years when it dried up before Songkran. Water from the dam for rice has been restricted and Cassava seems to be the favoured crop at present.

Hi Young Bill

I knocked it together a few years ago when the government water stopped but there was still water in the klong. The tank holds 1,300 litres when full but after driving up the banks onto the road and up the drive I usually ended up with about 1,200 litres.

To empty the tank I just used to swap the input over and hook a 2 inch hose on the output and pump it out in about 5 minutes.

Nowadays the klong has dried out almost completely except bu the bridge where they have had a makro dredging it out last week.

I am too old to go through all that again as it was hard work then and I could get a guy to help me out. I get my wife to go to the tessaban in Klong Lan and she orders a load which is delivered by the fire truck for free. I generally get about 10,000 litres once every 3 to 4 weeks and I also give each member of the crew 50 baht as a tip because they work hard enough in the 40C temperatures lately.

@billd766 if you don't mind, may I ask where did you get this IBC tote? I want to start a home project(aquaponics) with my kid and I'm looking to use one IBC as a fish tank and growing bed.

Here in Nakhon Sawan I didn't find any place to buy, only in Bangkok but the company sell in bulk and I need only one.

bytheway nice kit in your truck!

It depends on where you live really.

I found mine a few years ago in Khampaeng Phet and I know of a couple of other places around that sell them up my way.

Alternatively I may sell mine as it is not used any more.

Post a reply or send me a PM.
