Citibank ATM in Phuket

After reading TA reviews I decided to open a citibank plus account for my travels in Phuket to avoid hefty currency conversion fees / atm charges etc. Now after further research I cannot seem to find locations of any citibank atm's in Phuket. Has anyone seen them over there?

I also am looking at opening a Citibank for the same reason but as far as I am aware we just use any local ATMs. You wouldn't find a NAB bank for example overseas.

yes, you just use the local atms, same as here if you are at a club or something you use the atm there (I don't but just a similar situation). Be aware that you will still have to pay the local bank atm fees of 150baht per transaction, you can't get out of that in Thailand. So better off making larger withdrawals than lots of small ones to save on fees there but you won't get slugged again by Citibank and also won't have the conversion fee that other cards have either. I take cash to Thailand but am going to use my new Citibank Plus card to go to China in Sept (no local atm fees in China) and when we go to Europe as it would be too much cash to carry around for the amount of time we are going.
