Folks who have no roots or commitments here will tend to move around, but for every one who goes there will be at least one more arrival, it's a never-ending cycle.

I'm surprised it does not happen more often, as I would not be exaggerating in saying I see more unlocked than locked.

Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year
It's certainly cold today, I don't know if it's the coldest I have experienced here, as it might be my old age catching up with me.

Re: Visa on arrival wait for tourists could top 4 hours

The Visa on arrival area is chaotic, and with the Indians and Chinese, there is no orderly queuing. You have to pass nearby it getting to the Fast-Track section and you usually have to barge your way through.

I went last week to the Kasikorn opposite the market, with a friend who is on a multi-tourist visa, and is looking to retire here and needs to deposit the funds and it was no problem.
Hi

Can you please tell me what market. Thanks.
