Re: AirAsia to fly KL to Hua Hin from May 18

I just checked AA Bkk to KK for November and flights are available (1000B return!). So I think there might be a variety of reasons that details don't show yet. As a new route, they want to be certain it's going to be a profitable before releasing more flights, or at least consider the schedule, if ...

Re: Most practical and least expensive way to transfer large funds to Thailand?

I lived in Steve P - do not know where you are or where your citizenship is but do not understand why you “ can’t open a new Australian account as although I have bank and investments I have no bills, driving licence or visa which are required to open accounts .” When I was in Oz I had a Commonwealt...

Re: Most practical and least expensive way to transfer large funds to Thailand?

Isn't Schwab a US account, if so I cannot use it and I would assume the same for anyone else not from USA. I can't open a new Australian account as although I have bank and investments I have no bills, driving licence or visa which are required to open accounts. Do you have a link for Australia? To ...

‘You never know when you’ll need English’

This teacher really does have the right approach to teaching English, let's hope more Thai schools adopt this. Students at Maesai Prasitsart School, which several of the Thai cave boys attend, are looking forward to their return and celebrating the boys’ use of English when they spoke to divers who ...

Alternatives for sending cash out of Thailand

Re: Police Clearance Certificate

My experience from the Thai Police was much different and far less satisfactory. They insisted I provide a contract of employment overseas which I could not get until I submitted a police clearance. Thai police would issue a country specific clearance certificate and I needed it for three countries ...

Secure lock up storage

Is there anywhere that has secure lock up storage in Hua Hin? I do not need a big container just something to leave a few boxes, tools, suitcase etc. in for a few months.

Re: Tax residency in Thailand

There is another thread on this, can't remember the name, anyway I went to the Hua Hin Revenue Office on Soi 88 and enquired directly, I was told I only pay tax on income I earn in Thailand, any income overseas is not considered.
