I am flying to BKK on 3rd March, and Flying out of BKK on 20th May.
I was planning on staying in Thailand for 60 days, then visiting cambodia for a few days, then spending the remaining 15 days back in thailand before i fly from BKK.
As i cannot get a visa on arrival as i have no proof of flying from thailand within the 30 day limit, presume i need to get a 60 day tourist visa. I have seen it cost £28 per entry so would i need to get 2 entries? or could i use the 60 day one entry tourist visa, leave thailand and then return for the last 15 days of my stay on a visa on arrival.
Sorry i am really confused on this.
Thanks for a great site btw.

Yes, you will need to get the regular single entry tourist visa (valid for 90 days) before you arrive in Bangkok. Then you'll be re-stamped for a free 15 days without a visa when you return from Cambodia. I'm actually doing the exact same thing but from April to June.
Just because you don't have an onwards ticket does not mean you won't be issued a 30-day visa free entry upon flying into Bangkok. It's immaterial as you need 60 days anyway (and, as DL says), you'll need a visa.
I'd concur with DL - get a dingle entry tourist visa and do the second entry on a 15-day stay -- if you need more than 15 days on the second entry, then get a double entry visa as you suggest.
Many thanks for your quick replies and information.
I have now sorted a single entry visa.
