One of my favourite pastimes whilst here is to walk to the ‘yellow market.’ I just adore seeing the various kinds of fruits and vegetables. The meat, fish and eels are a sight to be seen! Today, there were many more stalls because of the forthcoming Chinese New Year
I hope you enjoy the video and would love to have your comments, at the moment I am learning new techniques for taking and editing videos, so all comments gratefully received.
Many people have asked about holiday money. Do I use the ATM, which bank cards do I use for holidays……
I use the following banks for holiday money, N26, Revolut and Starling. The reason I chose these banks, is because they do not charge for any withdrawals and the exchange rate they offer at overseas ATM’s and places that take card payment is very favourable to the consumer. Whilst travelling I am not a big fan of carrying too much cash, I prefer to pay using the card, where it is accepted.
Regardless of which bank I use here in Thailand, I noticed that if I need cash, the majority of ATM’s will charge 220 baht, which can add up. Aeon Thana Simsap is the only one I found which charges 150 baht.
The other banks charge 220 baht for a withdrawal transaction charge:
If whilst traveling in Thailand you have found a cheaper/free transaction fee, please do comment below!
Since watching the movie, Stand by Me, walking along the train tracks is something I have always wanted to experience, this was a live track and there was no way I could tell the direction of the trains, I was going to say watch the Vlog and find out if I survived, but it is a bit obvious I did, especially if afterwards, I am writing a blog!!
