Re: Thai bank account on a tourist visa... possible?

I opened one at Kasikorn about 3 years ago, on a tourist visa and without any difficulty. Took a friend there to do the same 6 months ago (Tourist Visa again) and they insisted on 10k deposit and and their own accident insurance policy for another 4k. I certainly won't take anyone else there.

Re: VPN Recommendations

I'm a Chrome convert too. Got totally fed up with FF and the constant script errors even after updates. I'm still using Hola as my VPN and have not had any issues with it yet. I have downloaded Betternet but not tried it yet.

Re: Consumer Association

Thanks Nereus. Had a good look around the site and it appears to be only concerned with the Government and Authorities wrongdoings. It does have lots of help for making complaints about the various departments but not what I'm after.

Thanks again.
