My friends all have several single entries and have had no issues. There does seem to be the odd isolation case where someone is rejected and it gets blown up on Thai Visa.




I will be applying for a METV next month and let you know how I get on.
That youtube blogger David Bond claims there are Facebook groups ran by Thai girls that are all dedicated to sharing info on farang guys they date or dated in the past, and they share pictures and private info about them. Apparently thousands of Thai girls are in these groups passing information to each other.

Have you guys heard of this? Haven't seen it brought up here, but that sounds pretty funny. I can't imagine something like this happening in other Asian countries, but it makes you think.

Yeah I wrote a post about it in this thread earlier this year. He got some heat a few weeks ago but most of the time the girls are just posting pictures of models or guys they like. Very rarely do they give shit to guys. Nothing to worry about unless you are stupid enough to have a youtube channel in your own name sharing pictures and videos of girls you are dating.

Foreigners mostly, but it seemed that there were way less Thai girls out. Anyway, I'll let others chip in who go more regularly than I.

I agree with your point and previously suggested that the Travel forum be made private for repped members only.

It is one of the main drawcards to this forum, love it or hate it.

I and many others joined this forum initially because of the travel section.

I do see what you mean though, maybe we can open a Bangkok discussion on one of the restricted forums?

I've been saying for years now we men need to gather and come back with some sort of offensive such as a facebook page to post about thai sluts who ride the carousel or slut around too hard or do crazy stupid shit worthy of regret when they're drunk some night.

I think this could slow the americanization of thai chicks as welll, even if just a teeny tiny bit; positive effect on the society around us.
Yes - I'm having major trouble getting a bank account opened this time on a tourist visa - was easy to open BKK Bank account last time with Internet banking too, not now. They wouldn't even reopen my accounts. Tried Kasikorn (green one) and Krungthai ( light blue one) - all asked for work permit. Will try UOB tomorrow. Gonna try in the lower Sukhumvit area where most farang are.

Even showed the 1-year rental contract, no dice. This could be a major problem.

Try Bangkok Helper a little pricey but they got me an account first time with no issues.

Isn't that your own business?
Not mine, but I know the person who runs it very, very well. Good friend of mine and is my go-to for anything and in return I give her ad space. I actually gave her the idea after I was getting so many requests for help. I did it once and the dude turned out to be gay and hit on me, so pretty much stopped after that.

I think it depends on the branch. Don't ask me why!

Try Kasikorn in Big C Onnut. They seemed very open to foreigners.

Hook up the RooshV discount.
Fucking shit. I knew I should have opened an account at Bangkok Bank last time I was in BKK. Through the grapevine I had heard in late 2015 things got a lot tighter.
That moment where you see a girl you've been banging and talking to a lot upload selfies of herself onto her Snapchat stories with a younger, hotter dude, while claiming she had to go away with her brother for a week!
^ Ouch.

As they, TIT. If you met her on Tinder, Thaifriendly (or similar) or in a nightclub, good chance she's a fairweather ho'.
Bangkok Bank will open but you need to open it at the main location in Silom. They speak english there. The other branches dont generally know very well

UOB is the easiest. Their only major requirement is that you need a 50,000 baht initial deposit which you can withdraw right away if you want.
Hi

Can anyone tell me what the situation with Visa runs is these days, when I spent time in Thailand many years ago I was doing runs to Cambodia, but I heard they are stricter now

Thanks
Last time I was in Bangkok a few years ago I blew through my savings like a complete retard due to lack of planning and getting raped on pretty much every transaction because I was a naive rookie. I wish I had at least spent my money plowing through hookers but unfortunately it was all sucked into the bottomless pit of western food and overpriced short term accommodation + gym fees.

I'm headed back this week and plan on being a little smarter this time around. I'm gonna find a cheap month to month condo/serviced apartment somewhere along the BTS but that's the easy part. Can anyone recommend a clean, cheap spot I can eat at consistently 2-3 times a day forever? Street food is OK once in a while but I don't want to make it a staple of my diet because of the toxic cooking oil they tend to use. Also have you guys found any accessible pay per session gyms that aren't insanely priced?

Whether it's food, drinks, lifting, daygaming or whatever I'm down to meet so feel free to hit me up if you're around.
I ate street food everyday when I was there and never felt better in my life. Terminal21 food court I suppose, but it's kinda the same stuff but indoors.

Tony's on Suk19 if it's still open. Bare bones basic and more expensive than what one would pay in the west but it gets the job done. Either there or get raped at a BKK chain gym.

Protip: the overpriced chain gyms in prime locales also have the hottest girls working out there. By working out I mean posing for Instagram. But hey, who am I to judge if you can make it work. I'd rather just go Demo or Onyx though.

For cheap food (less than 80 Baht per meal), you basically have 3 options in Bangkok:

  1. Food courts in the mall. I think Terminal 21 and MBK are the cheapest. Tesco Lotus food court is also pretty cheap. Food republic (in Siam Center and some Central Plaza's) is rather expensive.
  2. Street restaurants with plastic chairs and no AC. They serve almost every Thai dish there is. You can eat for 100-120 Baht if you order a drink too.
  3. Streetfood stalls. They range from deep fried unhealthy shit you mentioned to very simple and healthy dishes like noodle soup with pork and dumplings or a simple portion of rice with slices of chicken for only 30-35 Baht. It can be a bit tricky to find them though (to find the rice with chicken dish, just look out for a real or a plastic chicken displayed in a glass case). They are usually in some small communities about 5-10 minutes away from a main street. I would recommend to just invite a girl and tell her that you want streetfood near your place. She will find it.

Gyms: check out this post:

I am currently at Tony's gym in Asoke. It is 500 Baht for 2 weeks and 900 Baht for a month. They have everything I need (squat rack, pull up bar, barbells, benches, dumbbells) but everything only once. So if you are unlucky you have to wait for half an hour until the squat rack is free. If you are going in the early afternoon though, there are almost no people.

Last year I have been to Yak Fitness in On Nut (https://www.facebook.com/YAK.Fitness/). It is 100 Baht per day or 1,000 Baht per month. But no squat rack, no real bench to bench press (only a smith machine) and no pull up bar.

What you didn't mention is the SIM card. I am not sure how much the prepaid SIM cards are, but at the dtac shop in Siam Paragon you can get a postpaid SIM card which is usually more value for money. All you need is a copy of your passport and a VISA or MasterCard. I tried 2 other dtac shops and the shops of other phone providers and all of them asked for a work permit in order to get a postpaid SIM.
^Appreciate the reply my man.

Ahhhh I actually remember Tony's, I think i found it in the last week of my stay a couple of years ago. Before finding it I was paying one of the posh gyms some exorbitant rate that I forget. But yeah I'm usually in the gym 1-2 pm and I don't ever remember seeing more than 2-3 other people in the gym so it'll be perfect.

The food courts will hold me over till I find an alternative. I was using Paleo Robbie deliveries last time and while the quality was high you're basically consistently paying way more than Western prices so not ideal unless you're ballin'.

Haven't even thought about the SIM but I'll take your advice and head to Siam Paragon.

I'm anxious to get there, aside from my financial retardation I had an absolute blast in Bangkok and can't wait to go back.
I'm sitting in Tony's now writing this. Not the greatest gym (aircon is shit and dodgy clientele) but definitely one of the best value in BKK. Heavy weights and plenty of machines. Gets the job done.
There's a Jetts open in Bangkok. Might be of interest to Aussie and Kiwi forum members. You can use your Australian membership card there. In the middle of nowhere though, in Phapla (sp) Town in Town. Very decent set up though.
Bangkok is the type of place where you take a girl out, and she whips out her phone and shows the LINE Ids of two of her friends. You say you don't know them, but she says yes you do. Sure enough you search their names in your LINE and you talked to both before.
True story:

I'm sitting in Bonchon chicken at Terminal 21 with a Tinder date for dinner. The table to the left of me is 2 foreigners, a French guy and a girl from who the fuck cares. Both white and didn't come to BKK together based on the conversation. Both are actively on their phones as well. He's clearly trying to bang her.

Part of the convo: Girl: So why did you decide to come to Thailand? For the girls?
Guy: No way! I wanted to travel the world, see new things, blah blah blah

I catch a glimpse of the guy's phone during a pause and he's msging his buddy saying he fucked a ladyboy. His buddy cheers him on via text. The white girl is on her phone as well. French guy gets up and goes to the washroom. Girl LINE calls an unknown friend:

Girl: I'm at dinner with a guy.
Girl: Oh I don't know. He's French.
Girl: What?? You fucked a French guy too?

I'm on LINE too and am juggling the rotation of potentials. The girl I'm with gets sloppy with her phone angle and I catch she's msging on Tinder.

God I love BKK.
