Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Went to get visa yesterday.

I just got 3x60 days, which basicly means I dont need to find a consulate when leaving thailand and coming back, but I still need to cross the border every 60 days.

11 days to go before I leave for Thailand

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Quick Question.

Is it possible to hire a laptop while in bangkok. I am only going for a week but would be nice to be able to use the internet in my room. What rates are we looking at.

Mark.

Denmark, they also had a 1 year thing with multiple entries. Went to the consultate (I thing this is the english word) even though it was a 2+ hour drive to make sure to get the best option. You dont really need to get 3x30 days from home, do you? As I understand it you can get 30 days upon arrivel 3 times?

And just in case anyone doesnt knows a 60 day visa is valid for 60 OR until u leave the country, so crossing the border uses the visa no matter how many days one has left.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

I read the whole thread (took me a while) and there's a hudge possibility I'll be going to Bangkok for a year with some friends in a few months.

A question though (as pretty much everything else has been answered): do you guys know if the new Neteller card is working fine in Bangkok, in ATMs and as a credit card ? I'm trying to find a way to avoid costly Dollar > Euro > Bath conversions (I'm French) during my stay and that seems to be the easiest way.

Also, for ppl living there, what do u think is the best district to live in Bangkok ? Like not in an overpolluted area, but not too far from everything, and not overpriced (ideally we're looking for a 3 bedrooms appt/house for 1500usd/month max). We'll probably live in an hotel for a few weeks while looking for a place to live but if we can narrow it down to a few nice places that would be great.

Decent enough t grind off for reasanble rates.
BKK will have stronger conx on the whole since its the supply hub, but in Phuket if one chooses the correct company/ISP its pretty smooth.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

1) 3x60 days means nearly 9 months because after 60 days you can go to the immigration for extra 30 days. Same after the next 60 days. You only have to start your third 60 days before the visa expires.

2) If you want to stay in Thailand and play on Ongame you need to write support.

You guys should really visit Bangkok before committing to live there for long periods of time.

Weird is how they work. Like the number to order McDonalds delivery is 2111 or something.

most mobile numbers are like 06-123-1234 or 085-123-1234. I forget, I think they changed it last year. Consult your local farang for assistance.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

I never had any trouble with ongame here, but maybe it differs from site to site. I think the only site not working is party. I woulndt mind meeting some 2+2 ers here, been living in bkk for 3 months. You should check this out if u live in bkk too foodbyphone.com, awesome when ur lazy.
