Message from my daughter.....i'm not sure where to start!

I am trying to find everywhere if you can re-enter thailand on a tourist visa, i know you get 15 days if you arrive by land and 30 if arrive by air, but I am going to do south thailand first, then cambodia, vietnam, laos and then north thailand at the end when josh comes. I fly out of Bangkok. So I want to know if you can re-enter, I cant really find any reliable sources though, do you know?!

As many times as you like, plenty of falang (foreigners) live in Thailand for extended periods of time, they overcome the visa situation by doing the "visa run", simply leave and re-enter, i done it myself by crossing from Hat Yai in the south to Malaysia and re-entering approximately 15 mins later by walking round the border post. Immigration are used to this and your daughter should encounter no problems.

Regards,

I was just reading an article on visa runs from BKK. Guys have been doing visa runs for years.
