"Have a Visa in Bangkok can take a lot of time!!" Thailand Tourist Trap Tip by Fleaartist

Thailand Tourist Traps: 173 reviews and 76 photos

Is not a real trap, but can make you loose one day just waiting!
Two years ago, I went to Bangkok Myanmar embassy to get the visa! I read it was easy and faster then from Italy (where I live of course), I went directly to the embassy, but is not a good idea! I lost the entire day in the queue!! There are a lot uf guys from the agencies, that have 20, 30 passport and they will pass anybody who is standing for hours! I was so angry, but I could do nothing! So I lost my first day in Bangkok! And also when I finally reach the counter it was late afternoon and they told my visa would heve been ready in 2 days!!! Not one as if you consign the request in the morning!!! That is impossible because of the queue!!!!!!!!

Fun Alternatives: The best thing to do, is to pay an agency to make it for you! maybe you will spend more, but what is the price of a day in Bangkok!!!!!!!??????
