PHUKET TOWN: Krung Thai Bank will open a new branch in town on Monday, August 16, on Phang Nga Rd, close to the Royal Phuket City Hotel. The branch, in a building that was completed about 18 months ago, (but which has remained empty since), will replace the old Krung Thai office at the junction of Phang Nga Rd and Yaowarat Rd. That branch is to be closed. Chaisit Saiwijit, the branch manager, told the Gazette the office will offer “one-stop” service to deal with customers faster than the old one. In addition, the 44 staff will have more decision-making power, he says. Parking should also be easier, as the new building has space for 20 cars and 50 motorbikes. The branch will operate standard Thai banking hours, from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday.
