  1. Hi I haven't been to Thailand in 5 years and I will be back in November. Question I have is doAmerican atm cards still work on Thai bank ATM's ? The reason I ask that is that the world has moved on to chip and pin cards while america is the only country that still uses the magnetic strip cards. Should I get something like the Travelex cash card that has pin and chip ?
  2. Hi I'm planing on taking a very long tour of Asia China India Thailand but instead of buying a multi country ticket in the states . I was thinking it might be cheaper for me to just buy a ticket to Thailand and from there buy tickets to China and India. I would like to spend 3 months in Thailand and the rest of my time in the other countries and finaly returning home from Thailand back to the USA . Question I have is if I arrive in Thailand with a round trip ticket dated 8 months later from entry to return will I have any problems with immigration officials upon entry? Being that Thailand just gives 30 entry visas would they ask me any questions regarding what I'm planing on doing for such a long time between entrry and return?
  3. The cheapist and best way to send money is trough moneygram anything less then $900 dollars is only $10 dollars to send. I wouldn't even trust the post office here in America sending cash. thanks for your advice
  4. Hi Everyone I am thinking of sending a box of various goodies to my Thai friends through the postal service from America. My worry is that knowing how the postal service is in developing countries wil it get through intact? Have any of you had experience with this?

  6. Actually I just read the writer is American but grew up in Africa. I guess that explains why he finds some Thai foods strange.
  7. A number of these dishes are not all that strange. You can find a number of them in America in any area with a large Asian are Chinese population. Duck beaks, Chicken feet, Black duck eggs, durian can all be found in the Chinatown where I live in California.With the exception of Durian most of these dishes taste pretty good. The author was Probably originaly from somewhere in the Midwest where there wasn't much of a Asian population.
  8.
