Re: Finance advice - investment accounts in Thailand

Thanks for all of this guys. Thanks for the warnings and suggestions.

Also heard it would be difficult to take money back out of Thailand if I brought a lot in and put into a savings account.

So a lot to ponder.

Much appreciate this forum for the quick responses.
:cheers:

Re: Can an expat get a credit card in thailand?

At SCB I received my credit card 6 month after opening my account. Reason is they wanted to see my monthly salary being transferred regularly. However I suppose it might differ depending on the visa you are staying here in Thailand and of course depending on the income. Cheers, B. Would be on a ret...

Do you need the credit, or just the plastic?
We would need a credit card for making bookings for flights online and shopping online. Being retired can we get a credit card for this in Thailand?

Golf offers in Hua Hin

Hi there

Being golfers I wonder if any of you can advise if there is any "card" or system that will allow you to play several courses in Hua Hin without having to take out a membership at each course.

Thanks in advance

Hi

I was told it was for tax purposes when you sell. I.e you paid tax on the profit of the sale. Any truth in that?
