    you lucky devil, there is a certain worry to what might happen next, so now is probably better then later!

    I cant see it going much further down(he says fingers crossed), we are about to hit the start of high season with an already weak tourism problem due to the riots a weak exchange could prove to be a moving point, if not certainly soon i hope the effects of this will be to our benefit with a high turn around in the new year!!!!

    other wise fuuuuu^&^#^$%^%^[at]#$$[at]#$[at]
    im hot its so hot today.......milk was a bad choice!

    all is not lost depending on the home conversion from GBP to US, if this is say high like 1.9 or above to the pound then you could convert to dollar and then again in thailand to badt, with the exchange around 34 this is at least over 61-2 + by conversion!!!!!!!

    Aussie Dollar 22.12 this afternoon when I was in the bank and Pound 56.9.

    It's gonna hurt Thai tourism and exports big time.

    baht is way over valued , Thailand is rapidly coming on par with Oz price wise but still supplies 3rd world infrastructure .

    apparently they are already hurt, they changed the thai tourism visa to allow more people in without checks, and yet with such a crappy exchange (and this is onshore rates as well) it looks like a bad season for business needed from tourism!!!!!!

    THB getting stronger, if you fuckers stop spending and importing shit from overseas, the THB will keep getting higher,

    if you want it to crash, there needs to be more import !!!

    Baht is being propped up by the BOT - once they run out of dosh to do this - look for a sharp decline.
