Where should I setup a bank account in Ranong?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Ranong what banks they use and there advice about banking. They advised...

"Expats considering retirement in Ranong should be aware of several key factors. Firstly, the cost of living is relatively low compared to Western countries, but it's important to have a clear understanding of your budget and financial situation. You should also be aware that the healthcare system in Thailand is generally good, but it may be advisable to have health insurance to cover any potential medical costs. The climate in Ranong is tropical, with a rainy season that lasts from May to November. It's important to be prepared for this, and to understand how it might affect your lifestyle. The official language is Thai, and while English is spoken in many places, it can be beneficial to learn some basic Thai phrases. The culture in Thailand is deeply rooted in Buddhism, and it's important to respect local customs and traditions. Thailand has a visa requirement for long-term stays, so you'll need to ensure you meet the criteria for a retirement visa, which includes being 50 years of age or older, having a clean criminal record, and meeting certain financial requirements. Finally, it's worth noting that Ranong is a small province, and while it offers a peaceful lifestyle, it may not provide the same level of amenities or entertainment options as larger cities," explained one expat living in Ranong, Thailand.
