Moving Money Out of Thailand

TransferWise doesn’t do transfers originating in Thailand. A wire transfer to my US bank is expensive. Besides, most Thai banks make that difficult and time consuming. I don’t travel with a lot of cash. What to do?

Get lucky. The last time I transferred funds from the US was Feb last year. My time here and bank account balance are winding down together nicely. Withdrew enough today to pay rent, buy meds, and fund the next week. What’s left over will fund the rest of the days, the taxi to Bangkok, the airport budget hotel, and enough left over to stock up on some Euros.



18,380 baht is about $570.
