    All the best Matto, You will be fine just relax, enjoy the holiday and what happens will happen. There is no amount of worrying that will change the outcome. With the family meeting, just be yourslef, relax and follow what your TG tells you to do.

    Have a safe flight

    Have a great time Matto.
    When the visa is granted are you going to bring her back with you, or is it some time away?

    That is low even exchanging here. I always bring back a few 1000 extra for the next trip.

    I normally just wait until I get to the airport and exchange $100 or so there for the taxi/food etc.. Australian Exchange rates are terrible..

    Mate I carry aus cash and even the exchanges at the airport are better than that. 1,500 bht is closer to waht I send S in Aus dollars. Cash a pineaple at the airport (LOS) and then find a decent exchange. Either that or i use Krung Thai Or Siam or Bangkok atm to withdraw cash from the commonwealth in Aus.

    Never have and never been asked!... I usually spend the 3 months while she's here searching for the cheapest ticket possible.

    Don't forget you have an appointment at the Aussie bar 5 minutes after your bags hit the floor of your Patong hotel room ...555

    Been caught that way - once - also. Exchange rate was probably around 29 to $1Aud - but the so-and-so's hit you for a service fee of anything up to $12 ... so you really exchanged $38 bucks ... bloody banks !!!!

    Getting over 31 on the street here in Patong ... so the party continues for now ...

    Enjoy ...
    Life is the unexpected ...

    Well i can confirm in January this year Virgin required a return ticket before allowing boarding (from HKT). We purchased a ticket using one of the hotels help desks at the airport.
