I wish I had of done Jun, unfortunately I didn't start saving really till about 18 years ago.

We could do with a stock market crash so we can plough more money, that seems the only way to make big money.

Yes, I was focusing on paying down a mortgage in the late 90s. Putting money into Asian stock markets would have been far better.

The baht has been steadily weakening over the past several days. At the moment the exchange rates are the best (for us) they have been for the better part of the last three years.

You can always check the current exchange rates at: https://www.scb.co.th/en/personal-banki ... tml#fxrate

They do not update on Saturdays, Sundays, or bank holidays.

More bad news for the Baht
I would be lying if I said that news upsets me. If as a result we get a substantially more favorable exchange rate, I'll cry about it all the way to the bank . . .

Is Thailand on the US's currency manipulator list then?
