    Koh Samui motorcycle hire

    agree 20min is a bit of a hike, Chaweng Noi is better option. We just stayed in Karon very few shops rent without passport. So i hope this is not an issue in Chaweng. I have licence, but never leave passport. Lost Australian passport now $860 to replace. Thanks

    Motorcycle Hire Bangkok

    Hi, I will be staying in Bangkok for six weeks. I was looking for any info on the best place to hire a Honda Click. I will be staying in the Thonglor area. I have hired previously in Chaing Mai. I never leave my passport as deposit. Thanks for any comment. Cheers
  12. Ok thanks for this info, I have used Transferwise, I did not know they have a debit card. I did look at this option. However, the ATM fee from the Thai side is still charged. With ING Australian debit card the bank(ING) refund 100% of the ATM fee anywhere in the world. And there is no withdrawal limit. Citi Bank also have no ATM fee but their sole ATM is in Central World. So at this point ING are offering Australian clients a very good option.

    Thanks for this I will be going through this site, I'm sure I'll find something, and will most certainly monitor the visa situation. I'm 70 with a regular income, Although the $A is going down as we speak, 35K is ok. Thanks

    You didn't mention when, Mascot is total chaos now and houses are over a million, I'm70 now and just looking for a pool, good coffee and a quiet life. Sydney is none of those things and very expensive, I have been to Bangkok several times and enjoyed it so I'll give it a go. I thanks for your comments. cheers
