Thank you for suggestion's. Am going soon as possible, not sure how long, month or two?! are basic atm cash card's from uk bank santander ok to use on thai cash machine's??
cheer's Tim, i was espeically wanting to know about phone sim's etc..
When arriving in bangkok, will i be able to find fairly cheap, decent standard accomodation easily, for first night or two???
When i visit to Thailand in 2008, i stayed at Phunchok Mansion (i dont know if i spell corretly), that's more to like fully furnish appartment, not too close to downtown or airport. i remember it cost me 900bucks. that time 900 bucks= 30USD
i brought US dollars there safely and exchange there, u can do exchange at most of the shopping centers.
and i bought a sim card from a shopping center too and that's cheap and i can fill the value up if it is done. by the way, u can buy phone sim card (prepaid card) at airport too.
