  1. When I first moved to Thailand I initially landed in Cha Am, on the first day after I found a townhouse to rent I mentioned to the lady managing (not owning) the townhouse that I was going to go open a bank account at Bangkok Bank. She said she would go with me. She gave them a copy of her ID and probably house book (not sure at that time) and in very short time I had an account opened. I was in the country at the time on a Visa Exempt stamp, not any type of visa. So I guess my experience shows the use of a "customer" of Bangkok Bank to use as a reference can work. They spoke mostly in Thai, so I don't know what was or was not said, but if I remember correctly, the whole thing took about 20 minutes
