Re: Certified translation of marriage cert for yellow book

Re: Photo trip report: Sai Yok Yai, Sangkhlaburi, Kanchanaburi

Up at 6am to walk back over the bridge to a big Burmese market, and the major tourist draw to the area. Kids were perched along the bridge dressed in traditional Mon wear offering Burmese face painting, irresistible to the city selfie crowds. This spectacle happens every weekend when the town gets i...

That evening we headed over to the Mon bridge and crossed to the small Burmese village on the other side.

Re: Bangkok Bank Visa Debit

BAY (Bank of Ayudhaya) seem to be the most farang friendly at the moment. No idea why being married should be relevant unless it is a joint account.

Logically the country they're in is benefiting from inbound...
