i've read few sites in this thread with big interest and i have a few questions hoping you can answer them
i am from germany and i am going to book my flight to bkk in the next days and want to arrive there in the first week of july.
I only have a passport, a laptop and a mb/neteller card with some bucks.
I am playing mt sngs on stars, nl100€ 6max on a small site and trading a lot in diablo3.
I have never been to thailand before so my generally plan was moving to bkk, stay there for 1 month and then decide wether i take my ticket back to germany or stay there for longer.
When i arrive in bkk i get a 30 days visa right? After 30 days i have to make a visa run and get another 30 days?
Is it easy to find a "good" serviced ap. in bkk? What i want is a fast and stable internet connection, safe place and maybe a laundry service because i don't know how to wash clothes
Also it would be nice to have a gym there or nearby the apartment.
Furthermore i am interesting in learning the thai language (or just some phrases^^), is it possible to find a course where i can go 2 or 3 times a week and learn a bit thai?
Has anybody a recommend for me regarding to serviced apartments or has anybody a free room in a poker flat? (sry for my english
) I am not only interested in bkk, if you know other places where all my aspects are filled (?, again sry for my english!) i would also move in an other town/island.
And how much $ should i expect to pay for an apartment? Are they all with a 2-month deponat even if i just want to stay there for 1 month? I am really bad in saving money because i am donktard who spends too much money :> so i would prefer to find an apartment/room for around 300-600$/month.
Can i use my moneybookers card to pay the room? And how much money can i get from the atm per day? in germany it is limited to 250€/day.
Sorry for all this noob questions but moving to thailand is a big deal for a person like me.
