  1. I have some banking to do. Not overly complicated, but being able to half communicate would help. It didn't go well in Banchang today. So, I'm wondering if their are more English speakers in any of the SCB branches in Rayong or Pattaya. Thanks in advance for any info.
  2. Is it me or is the internet around Pala particularly bad at the moment?
  3. One of our fans is not turning on. Its only about a year old. Are there any good reasonably priced repair shops, preferably south of Sukhumvit, on Pala ir Phayun Road? Thanks. Sent from my SM-G610F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  4. Having a minor issue with an HP laptop. Any reliable local repairers, preferably English speaking? Sent from my SM-G610F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  5. I have a UK drivers license and an international license. I also have a Thai work permit. How do I get a Thai drivers license? Is it easier to get it done in Pattaya (I live in Banchang)? Thanks in advance.
  6. I'm not taking it on a plane, its being shipped by sea with a bunch of personal possessions.
  7. Thinking about buying a barbecue in the UK and bringing it back. Is the gas bottle connector going to be the same as the gas bottles in Thailand? If not, is it possible to buy adaptors? Thanks in advance.
  8. Getting Finance of a Secondhand Car in Banchang?

    Thanks. What is the address or location?
  9. Thanks guys. I'm in Rayong. Will try TT Exchange.
  10. No, I haven't lived in the UK for 20 years and have no financial ties to it. I do, however, have family.
  11. I'm going back to the UK in a couple of weeks. I'll be there about three weeks. What's the best way to change Baht for Pounds? I'm assuming the options are; 1. Transfer Baht from my Thai bank account to my UK bank account 2. Use my Thai debit card (Mastercard) 3. Use my Thai credit card (also Mastercard) 4. Go to a money changer in Pattaya and change Baht to Pounds Thoughts? Trying to do it as cheaply as possible. I need to take about £5000 home. Thanks in advance
  12. Does anybody buy medical insurance when they go back to the UK? Our situation is complicated by the fact that three of my family are dual citizens of the UK and a non-EU country. The other member of our family is from a non-EU country. I know GPs are free and are emergency services. Thoughts of getting additional coverage? Where do you buy it from? Thanks in advance.
  13. Ban Chang Playground for Kids

    Om Payoon Road between Sukhumwit and the bypass there is a playground (but watch out for the read ants), a playground and a pool. On the west side nearer the bypass.
