    Hi all,

    I'm new to TravelFish, this is my first post, but all of the threads I've read so far have been helpful and immensely encouraging. A friend of mine and his girl friend may be moving to Thailand for three months or so while she does a residency there. I've been invited along and I am excited but I've never done a trip that didn't include a travel company or all inclusive resorts so I'm a little lost. I have mostly sorted out what I need to do for visas, flights, etc. but I still have a ton of questions. (The exact city isn't set yet but it won't be Bangkok)

    1) Is it possible to rent a 2+ bedroom apartment/house for a reasonable price and for only three months? If not, what would you recommend?

    2) Can I buy a phone for local use and use internet cafes when needed or should I bring my phone and laptop?

    3) How do I go about getting to my money while I'm there, can I withdraw it, should I have it sent to me periodically, or will I need to bring it with me and keep it safe?

    Sorry if the questions are odd but I'm new at this so any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    The answers to one and two are yes.

    And yes, you can use a bank card and withdraw your money from home. Check with your bank first.
