Bangkok Airport : No money for visa! What did I do then?


I have reached Bangkok’s Don Mueang airport Now I am going to get the Visa on arrival and immigration formalities Local time is 6:15 am I saw many aircrafts of Air Asia had mentioned ‘NOW EVERYONE CAN FLY’ There is a sale going on in India Air Asia has offered fares as low as Rs 99 in India Kochi-Bangkok was offered only for Rs 1700 (approx.), which is dirt cheap It seems a dream has come true for many people who could not afford to travel by air I had a positive experience with Air Asia today, which was also my first flight with them I have just realised that I have landed into a big trouble There is no ATM on the air-side of this airport and I do not have local currency to get Visa I need atleast 1000 Thai baht to get the visa on arrival let me try.. I have done a blunder All the ATMs are on the other side of this airport, which can be approached only after getting the visa and now, I am just running from pillar to post to get help I am so happy I have got the cash My airlines helped me to get the cash. They sent their official to escort me to the ATM He is the person who helped me But, I have learnt from this mistake Either get a visa before starting the journey or get the local currency in advance to get the visa on arrival Thanks a lot 🙂 Now I have got the money, I am going to get the Visa on Arrival I had to pay 200 baht extra for withdrawal of 7000 baht from the ATM
