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

I opened an account at Kasikorn in Market Village when I was over there in January. I used the hotel name and address. Very easy to do, they didn't ask for any proof. I have internet banking and have just this week transferred a sizeable sum into it from UK via Currency Fair.
