It’s Good to be the Foreigner at Kasikorn Bank


I already knew the bank catered to foreigners. They were the only ones that let me open a Thai Baht savings account while in the country on a Tourist Visa. Three times now I’ve made withdrawals from their ATM, walked inside, took a number, filled out my deposit slip and found a place to wait. Each time, after waiting a minute or two, an employee approached me and asked how much I was depositing (she knew it was a deposit because bank slips are color coded). My deposit was over the magic number, so I was shown to someone at a desk who finished the transaction while my number was still 10 down in the queue. Sometimes I don’t mind being profiled as a ‘rich foreigner’.
