I use Capital One credit card overseas, as they do not charge the 3% FTF (Foreign Transaction Fee). Some other banks (Chase?) and credit unions in the USA do not charge the FTF.
YMMV

Yes, you should be able to open a Thai bank account. Get an ATM card with the account. Kasikorn Bank is usually a good bank.

No, you most likely will not be able to get a Thai credit card. I live and work here, with a proper work permit, but could not get Thai
credit cards with the Thai banks. Aeon (Japanese) and Citibank (USA) would provide me with CC. The Citibank card has proved to be the best, as I charge enough with the CC and they do not charge any annual fees.

With the Thai bank CC, they do not want to issue you a CC if you are over 60 years old.
