might pay a fee from three parts: 1) fixed fee: 150 to 220 Thailand bahts
(approximately 5-7 US dollars) per operation for local bank. Also, the
maximum amount you’ll be able to withdraw in one time is between 20-35k bahts (approximately 650 to 1200 US dollars) depending on bank. 2) 2-5% for exchange from the
