Post & Banks

The local post office in Khlong Ngae offers the classical postal services and different kinds of financial services.

Kasikornbank Public Company Limited formerly known as the Thai Farmers Bank was established on 8 June 1945. As of 31 December 2003, the bank is the fourth largest commercial bank in Thailand. The bank offers consumer services including deposit-taking, credit card services, custodian services and online banking.

His Majesty King Vajiravudh (Rama VI) introduced savings services to Thailand in 1913. The main purpose was to educate Thai people on banking services and to promote savings habit among them. King Vajiravudh issued an act, effective from 1 April 1913, to formally set up the Savings Office which began its operation under the Royal Treasury since then.

As the first and oldest Thai commercial bank, Siam Commercial Bank has a history dated back as early as the reign of King Rama V, when the country's banking system was served only by foreign banks. As its operations received wider recognition, His Royal Highness sought Royal Assent and transformed it into Siam Commercial Bank Company Capital Limited, a full-fledged commercial bank, on January 30, 1906.
