    Every airport has landing fees. If I fly China Air thru Norita it costs and additional $30.00 than going thru Taipei. Also the price of petro is still climbing and I assume that is driving the cost of tickets to be higher. I was told that the petro is 80% of the cost of running an airline.

    Using my own experience which may possibly be out of date as regulations in Thailand constantly change the answer is yes but just as with opening a bank account it's not straightforward. For banking or brokerage services always go to the head office of the bank. There isn't consistency on what the actual regulations are but using a retirement visa I have accounts with 2 banks and 2 brokerages. You wouldn't know for sure till you visit. I found BBK bank on Silom to be the most responsive but you should keep trying if you are initially refused at a particular bank. Also it might help if you are referred by an existing customer in good standing. Dividends are taxed at source at 10% and best of all no capital gains if you are fortunate enough to cash out with a profit.

Normally I fly either Emirates or Lufthansa but both quoting above 900 euros, Lufth even over 1 k. Even Turkish airlines known for their bargains have rates in the region of 900 euros.

    You might have to be resident to be able to do that.

    Excellent idea. Generally what I do I email the list of phone numbers (in a spreadsheet listed meeting date and place) of to be meeting girls to myself. Just open up the email to call next girl when I needed. Some time I m forced to take selfie pic with girls and I send those pic by email to her and to me too. Than I delete those pic from my phone right after I leave her.

    Carrying a Passport

    When I go for my visa extension, because I'm coming in on a s e TV do I do that as soon as I get to town, or do I wait until the end of my visit. Is immigration being okay to a guy with a brand new clean passport, no visit since 2015, self-supporting and clean cut with a hidden gutter crawl inside? Similarly, I assume the place to go for my next single entry would be Vientiane, or is it different Embassy the favorite. I'll leave for a couple of weeks at the end of my first 90 stay to go to Laos and Cambodia or even Burma if that's a good place to go.

    As to the crackdown, Arecfolks carrying your actual passports in Bangkok itself, or just a photocopy okay. I also have a passport card. I'm not going to be in the red light district very often. I don't drink at all. So I don't get into any trouble.

    Just out of curiosity, if you've been staying in Bangkok for a while, what are your districts of choice.
    Leave the passport card at home. It is of no use in Asia. I would always keep my passport in a safe place like a hotel safe. You should carry a copy of your passport and the stamped entry page at all times. I would also suggest emailing a copy of your passport photo page to yourself. In the event you lose your passport, it would be helpful to have a copy in your email.

    That's likely correct. But I have visited Thailand numerous times regardless what the season that was. But always seen the upper Sukhumvit is full of farang. But this time (30th April to 8th May) it surprised me seeing very much empty. I strolled Soi 3 to Asok every day I stayed but all the same. Empty and empty.

    What crackdown are you speaking of? You just have to be able to produce your passport in a reasonable amount of time. A passport card is not doing you any good, because they want to see the entry stamp to make sure you have not overstayed. Nobody has ever stopped me asking to see a passport. I think this mainly happens when they raid a club or something. And I have been in clubs when they were raided and they have never asked me for anything then either. I am only asked for ID in a traffic stop but I have a Thai license. You go to immigration for an extension on the last day that your visa is valid.

    Does Thaniland getting less visitors these days?

    On 8th April my flight landed at 4.30 pm. I get surprised we few are from other countries in the Que for immigration other than Chinese groups. Why the hall is full of Chinese!

    On 14th April 2.00 pm got the Que in front of immigration on way to manila. It was same the hall was full of Chinese groups. Couple of times my Que immigration officer stand on his chair and warned to some Chinese ladies just to shut the mouth. Too much noise. Citizens from other countries are not much. And we passed the immigration like a breeze.

    On 30th April 5.00 pm arrived Suvarnabhumi again from Manila. Just the repeat of other days. No crowd, less visitors than I seen before. Short Que and smooth passing the immigration.

    On 8th may passed out BKK. Nothing to surprise we just breezed out the immigration and what the hell the hall was full of Chinese visitors.

    The bottom line: What happened to Thailand! Does the visitors getting less these days?

    The only time it took 5 minutes for me (or in fact even less) was when I came back from the Phils around midnight one time and the immigration hall was almost empty. I was also in one of the front rows so I got off the plane quickly.

    All other dozens of times it took anywhere between 10 and 30 minutes I think. No reason for me to spend 900 Baht on a express service. That's almost a ST.
