Help with visa and money.

Hi. I recently booked a flight to Thailand and am planning to stay there with my friend. I booked the return flight for at least 60 days after arrival. He has told me to get a 60 day visa and I can renew it again whilst out there. Was wondering where I could get a 60 day visa and also what is the best way to handle my money? Shall I keep my uk bank or does anyone know another travellers bank or something. Hear it's a lot of money to take money from a ATM. Thanks.

Travellers cheques or cash passport, plus a credit card for emergencies.

60 day Visitor''s passport also available from Royal Thai Consulate in Hull or Liverpool by post or by personal appointment.

Travellers Cheques are a cheap and safe option with good rate of exchange. Only take American Express Sterling TCs and change them at any bank or bank exchange kiosk. You will need to take your passport with you to do so and it is a good idea to carry a copy of your passport with you showing the visa stamp at all times.
