What can substitute a money safe?

He could create a USDT wallet and put the money on an USB stick.

 

'Portable safe' sounds very,.. unsafe.

Do you realize that USDT is not a risk-free asset? Nobody knows for sure how it works, who controls it etc. I would even prefer “under the bed” option to USDT.

Do you realize that USD is not a risk-free asset? Nobody knows for sure how it works, is not allowed to say who controls it etc. I would even prefer “on the USB stick” option to USD.

 

You don't know how anything of that works, why even comment? DAI USD is backed by loans, people know how it works and who's behind it.

 

Go educate yoruself about the topic a bit:

Why have lots of cash at all? Someone invited banks, credit cards, etc...

Banks are only good for people living in Thailand and credit cards are only for young people. I did apply for a credit card at my bank and the answer was no. Because I am a pensioner.

Tourists/visitors need to bring over rather than pay the withdrawal fees 

And then worry that cash could be stolen?

I prefer to pay a little more and have peace of mind.

Have your friend “wise“ the money to your account as he needs it, and then you can give it to him. No need to keep more in hand than he needs for a few days. This would greatly reduce the pain if it is lost.

Well you have the 150 baht withdrawal fee plus the low currency exchange if you withdraw from a ATM

That good enough as long as the suit case is properly locked.

It's extremely unlikely anything's gonna happen...

....unless he invites ladyboys over for a pyjamas party.

Easy to open a locked suitcase. Just pop the zipper with a pen.

Most places we've been recently use qr codes to pay. Been to several restaurants that don't take cash anymore.

Few thoughts ...

... no hotel room or safe is safe, no exception

... is it really that hard to carry money.  1 stack is 100k baht.   How much do you need to have at 1 time.  HINT: ATMs when needing more

... in this digital money world, you really don't need to carry much at all

 

I carry money & PP with me at all times.  I don't lose sh!t and you ain't going pick pocket my bag.  Nobody is that good.  Paranoia rules.

Guess you're not in TH, or you haven't used an ATM in about 10 yrs, if not more. 

 

Unless you're only use AEON, which can be a bit annoying, as not many ATMs, and many free standing, which you really shouldn't use.

Im not up to date on technology, 

I am learning this QR codes it's not easy looking at menus etc 

I even use the checkout at a supermarket where a person is serving you rather than a self scan

 

Can I tap my HSBC card say at a 711 in Thailand nowadays?

Try it. Super simple. And you don't need to carry much cash. I saw a tuk tuk with a qr code! Most taxis have them. All convince and grocery stores have them. And transferring money to someone is super easy. We do it all the time. No cash.
