Re: New to Udon, have non o-a, want to get Thai savings account

Siam Commercial Bank on Phosri Rd is also expat friendly. If you go in an just stand near the seating area, someone will come to assist you. Just say you want to open an account with 800k. Smooth as silk I'll guess. Remember, single owner only for immigration purposes.
