  1. 1 year visa, 90 days reports. can be extended for 1900 baht up to 5 years or if you got the 20 years option you get 4x 5 years visa going out of country at any point will give you back one year on arrival not 100% sure if its easy to get the one year at ANY land borders to be honest but it should be.
  2. I was able to login and upload some PDF from online banking, hopefully that is acceptable. looks like it will work so far but there is up to 5 days wait for document verification so unless I get rejected on document verification should be fine. I'll do a test next week and see how the fees and whatnot compare to stuff like straight up ATM, crypto (which I can do within an hour) and if its acceptable then i'll use transferwise Bangkok Bank used to take about 3-7 days depending on how much you paid ($3 for "3 days", $7 for "1 day") but they are more like 3 to 7 days.
  3. would you reckon it makes a difference it the Transferwise account is made as of back home or Thailand? what i'm trying to do is transfer the funds from my US account to their US account and then ultimately to me (doesn't have to be Bangkok Bank) I have been doing that with the Bangkok Bank ACH thing but that's going away.
  4. I just emailed them but you might know the answer to this if I am a Canadian but have no utility bills or whatever is it still possible to make a borderless account or would they ask for some kind of paperwork or maybe ask for paperwork from Thailand? I put that I was from Canada (probably a mistake) and they started asking for utility bills and blablas.. but I was only made aware of the borderless account this morning.. when I went with a different email to put thailand to check it out it told me I already had an account. wondering if i should be deleting that account and making another one as living in thailand or if they would STILL ask for Canada paperwork or maybe the Thai one would be fine. only asking cause yesterday I read about this, related to the Bangkok Bank ACH changes in 2019 (just in preparation) as I assume my bank will be like "we can't do those IAT blabla because you are just transfering to the US" or other nonsense
  5. I have much less than 7000 posts but been living here 5 years and I have seen what 500 b can get you I never went to bars or looking for it but on a recent trip to Mueang Chon Buri (not Pattaya) my friend and her family took me on a sidecar trip looking for food and she kept pointing at women and saying "500 baht, you want?" They know I never drink or frequent bar girls and slowed down right next to them just to annoy me. the girls were quite good looking to be honest, sitting on their motorbikes on the side of the street ready to follow anyone that would pay them to go home with and they have their own way back too.
  6. yep aviron racing is selling them, only thing i didn't like is TNT wanted to take away my passport for a "few days" while they apply for me for some kind of importers permit..
  7. pff.. no doubt, some of those dogs packs are absolutely ferocious past 12am

    Thai"friendly"....share your insight.

    no doubt, I have talked to a few women who claimed to be virgins, some over 25.. they seemed to act like it was something i should cherish but I absolutely do not what would I do with a girl that has absolutely no experience, is shy and "scared" about everything.. I had one at 17, couldn't tell the difference because it was my first time too but we stayed 10 years together.. then had another one at 33 and nope. I heard quite a few times that women were selling their virginity to some men (not related to Thailand) but when the last one talked about this rubbish I told her that she should pay ME to teach her all this stuff.

    I wouldn't buy her a phone even if she stayed with me for 3 months and didn't "charge" anything ? that story about 70% on phone is a good hint if she will bore you easily or not so, great that you don't put up with it

    Downloading music from YouTube

    those are almost word per word the exact settings I have on mine but different name for app. the thread things is how many videos/songs you can download at the same time, if you put it to 7 it will download too many at a time youtube might temporarily block you from accessing not going to hear the difference without some real expensive headphones and a much better player like a Cowon Plenue D (my particular choice) but certainly not over a laptop, car speakers or ipods if storage space is not an issue, keep the proper 320 albums. if storage is an issue you can convert to 192 (from 320 only). I get the odd singles off youtube sometimes, not very easy to get a single song off something like tpb

    Downloading music from YouTube

    nothing wrong with MP3. if size is an issue I would likely even convert most of those to 192kbps myself.. I don't have the $1000 headphones to be able to hear the 0.5% difference that those audiophiles claim to hear I don't know if we were talking about the same software tho, mine is called "4k Video Downloader" so if you don't find what I meant in there (you said 4K YouTube to MP3 to previous poster) then that's why technically speaking Youtube is not the best place to get the music from (quality wise) but it's more than fine most of the time, depends on the source etc. I convert 320kbps MP3s back to 192 myself all the time..

    I think you said you were using 4K Downloader earlier so you can use the "original" quality when you click extract audio at the top left when you paste the link in. clicking the high quality makes no difference in quality, just bigger files. I have tested to make sure downloaded some 4K big production video file and the Vorbis audio file in there was 128kbps that program is well worth paying for to be honest, you can download whole playlists or channels with one click. 15$ that's it now regarding the quality question, a CD ripped at 320kbps would be better quality than a say 128kbps or 192kbps rip yes but if you rip your CD at 128kbps and then CONVERT it to 320kbps it actually degrades the quality. to be honest 99% of the people don't have the ears or gear to be able to hear the difference between 128 and 320.. 192 would be a better choice if you really think you can
