Both tourist and business visas are available on entry at the airports and at some of the international crossings. A tourist visa costs US$30, a business visa $35. There is no difference in required documents for one visa or the other -- one just costs $5 more than the other.
At international airports you'll generally get the visa for the official price, at overland crossings, overcharging may happen occur. You will require a pen and one photo.
A tourist visa can be extended once, for 30 days only. The extension costs around US$45 through an agent. Business visas can be extended pretty much forever on an annual basis. The fee for a year-long multiple entry extension is around US$280. Both types of extensions take a day or two and are best handled through agents.
All tourist visas are single entry only. Business visas can be extended for a range of periods of time and can be multiple entry. The visa sticker for both types of visa are full page, so bear that in mind if you do not have many pages left.
Overstays are charged at US$5 per day of overstay.

If you planned on getting your visa at the embassy in Bangkok, don't bother. It's way out of the center, very hard to get to. We saw it on the tourist map we got in Bangkok but in reality the embassy is off the map.
Just get the visa at the border.
