Re: RE: Re: Online Ordering - a sign of the times?

Nope, it's just for cash withdrawals. Both Kasikorn and Bangkok Bank ATM cards can be used as debit cards, but they have to be activated by the Banks on request. Debit cards can be used in ATMs. ATM only cards cannot be used as debit cards. Kasikorn used to issue both types, but not sure if that's ...

Re: How can Thailand curb its appalling road fatality rate?

Why would it affect their tea money in a bad way? The punters pay to avoid a fine, they'll also pay to avoid points and a fine.

The need for a tax certificate when leaving the country was discontinued, not the requirement for residents to file tax returns. Anyway, I was only disputing the "no taxes" as an advantage to living here. I think there's another thread about tax, but when it comes to tax maybe ignorance is bliss. :)

Yes. They certainly do rabies shots there (used to anyway) so possibly can treat snake bites too.

Sorry, my mistake. I came across it the other day and obviously remembered the wrong name. It's Lazada Wallet. http://www.lazada.co.th/payment-methods/.

Just to expand on the Bo Fai outage. This applies WEST of the khlong road. Places mentioned include the 7-11, KorSor resort, Resident Hua Hin, Natural Hill, Suan Pak Naam, Sunset (or Sanches or similar - hard to read), Baan Sap Thani, Noble House, Taradon(?) Resort.

Hope this helps.

Re: Snake bites in Thailand - medical attention

Probably Hua Hin hospital has antivenin available, and possibly the Red Cross clinic, as I believe it's the Red Cross that produces the stuff.
