Moving to Thailand

Seriously thinking of moving to Thailand - not to coom but because it looks beautiful and affordable to live there. I live in Britain and I'm sick to death of this shitty, grey, cripplingly-expensive dump full of miserable, angry, ugly people. My company allows foreign-based staff. I'm going out to Thailand in April for the first time, I'll be looking at properties in Pattaya also checking out Bangkok and Phuket. ChatGPT tells me that a foreigner can own a condo as long as no more than 50% of the building is foreign-owned.
Anyone done this? Pros and cons? Please don't let this become yet another coomer thread, there are plenty of those already.

        Yes, 4000 lbs a year is a lot of money for a fricking piece of paper. I don't mind shelling out for flights, good lodging, or great food - but I will never paypig bureaucrats for the "privilege" of not being thrown out of the country.

    >women are ugly as frick
    >dating culture revolves around being a sugar daddy
    >everywhere is devoid of WiFi
    >every woman has a tattoo
    The only pro to Thailand is that it's relative easy to get a visa compared to other sea nations.

      My number one advice to anyone going to Thailand. LEAVE THE COOM ZONES
      Holy frick, if you go outside of fricking Pattaya and Sukhumvit you'll suddenly see how nice of a country Thailand is. The people there are friendly and don't treat you like ATMs. The women don't have tattoos. The streets are clean. There is wifi everywhere. Thai people are incredibly warm and intelligent people. Stop spending all of your time in the sin zones that are corrupted by greasy old westerners that just want to cum in young women.

      The places where the higher class Thai live in Bangkok have little to none of these problems.

      Other than that, you shouldn't run away to places with a) a different language and a different racial population b) people who are always gonna be lower class than you, a westerner. If you need to ask why for any of these then it's hopeless. But you do you

      Currently living in Thailand. Pretty accurate. Antisocial behavior is incredibly widespread in Thailand. It's like everyone has legit autism and has no awareness or capability of even feeling empathy for others. This is most clearly seen in the way they act on the road and in public spaces. There is zero mutual respect unless money is changing hands or they are trying to save face. Don't be fooled by the temporary displays of kindness they put on.

      This is about when the delusional chuddies will chime in and say 'NOOOO ITS PERFECT HERE JUST GO OUTSIDE THE TOURIST AREAS'. Bullshit. It's baked into the society as a whole even if you go to the most remote parts of isaan or the north. There are of course, exceptions to this. Just like there are black people who don't act like Black folk. But that's just it, it's an exception.

      Anyway, OP, living in Thailand is great in some regards, mainly with how cheap it is, but I'm warning you, unless you have clinically diagnosed autism, the moronation of the Thai people will wear you down very quickly. I love my house here, I love the nature, but the second I have to interact with Thai people it sours my day. I'm already planning on going back to america.

        Astute and accurate observation.

        Thai people are completely unreceptive to you and any foreigner penetrating their culture. Their culture is for them, not for you. They don’t want you speaking their language or understanding their culture. They only act progressively more friendly and receptive as the anticipation of higher amounts of baht being exchanged is realized, and then once the transaction is complete, their countenance reverts right back to being grumpy and standoffish.

        It’s a pitiful, feral, and completely underdeveloped level of 3rd world childish greed that genuinely disgusts me. Whenever I experience it, I realize that all these other ratshit nations have not a chance in hell of usurping US financial dominion over the world. Imagine a bunch of feral, emotionally stunted countries being able to cobble together some shitskin currency to usurp the dollar; that they can somehow fix their subhuman greed and lack of delayed gratification and economic vision.

        Laughable. I’ll take my cooming trips and then gtfo to maintain the balance in my life and keep reality in view

          I'm another expat here and gonna chime in by agreeing with pretty much all of this. The positive flip side is that you can count on Thai people to generally leave you the frick alone. Nobody will get up in your face about politics, dietary preferences, race stuff or anything really. If you're a purple skinned libertarian vegan homosexual who wears neon ponchos and builds boats in his front yard while blasting Frank Zappa on repeat people who see you will just shrug and go about their day. Nobody cares about you or what you do unless you're actively being a public nuisance. As a farang this being left alone to do and think as you please is probably the best thing that Thais can offer you. If you're comfortable being completely disconnected and isolated from human beings then you'll be fine with that. If all you care about is access to inexpensive pussy and warm weather this won't matter to you. Unfortunately I've learned over a decade living here that that's not me. I prefer to feel like people around me are willing to take at least a mild interest in engaging with me on some level. Does it highlight some basic b***h neediness on my part to have my existence validated by society? Maybe. Do I recognize the pettiness of that need? Yes. But when you've been living in a place for a long time, learned the language and culture, present yourself in a respectable manner and people continue to shy away, scurry or bury their face in their phones at the mere presence of you - it hurts. I know we're not supposed to talk about feelings on an international coomer board but frick man, the loneliness is real. Becoming fluent in conversational Thai never changed this for me. And don't get me started on actually relying on Thais to do something useful, important or time-critical. Just the thought of that sends me crawling up a wall. Fry up noodles or work a wiener? Sure. Wire my house or deliver a package by 5pm? Frick, I'd rather get a lobotomy than even try to arrange that.

                Assuming you are walking facing traffic in Thailand...
                If a vehicle is coming up from behind you and making a right turn that cuts across your path, it is always recommended to yield to the vehicle, NOT to walk out into the vehicle's path like a dumbfrick. Oncoming traffic may make it impossible for the vehicle to wait for you to cross. This is true even in America. However, if you are two or three steps from the far side of the street when you notice someone coming up behind you making a right turn, by all means keep going.
                When you are facing a vehicle making a left turn, you will learn to tell by how the driver steers whether he expects to make his turn in front of you or behind you. If cars are waiting to pull out onto the road you are walking along, always walk behind the first car in the queue.

            [...]
            I've lived here on and off for years. Previously Phuket and Samui and now Bangkok for the last year. It's the 15th country I've lived in, so I don't see rainbows every day but you find anons like this everywhere - carrying around mental health baggage and always moving conversations to complaining.
            Thai people are lovely, are they quite as genuinely nice as what you perceive when first get here? Probably not. Are they generally a friendlier, smilier, happier culture than that of the UK? Certainly.
            The 'no more than 50%' rules applies to land greater than an acre and houses - you can buy condos outright. Last year tey relaxed the rules on buying land, as long as it is not used for commerce or agriculture. Pretty sure it has to be an acre or less. Regarding condos, expats rarely buy them as they are poor investments, they depreciate very quickly due to Thais believing there are spirits that inhabit old buildings. Everyone wants a new building (even expats) and you'll be left holding a condo with crumbling amenities and a value that freefalls after 10 - 15 years.

            I've currently gone from 20 days of night shift to a four-week vacation spent in my home tinkering with hobbies to another 20 days of night shifts. During these months I've only talked to 3-4 people for work purposes, for a total of maybe five to eight hours. I still have no urge to interact with others socially and have actively cut off all my friends and associates from my life. I only want to do my own thing and not be bothered by others. Thailand sounds great. Cheap food, booze and pussy, all I need.

And I feel like Indo the absolute least, but people have been impressed and intrigued by me my whole career, and on the personal side. Though people's first impression of me is typically an butthole/jerk. There's always a moment with my relationships on both sides where, "When I first met you I didn't like you, but now I can't imagine life without you, but I still don't understand you" and I am in a career where people typically burnout, consulting, but it doesn't affect me, and I like the freedom of it.

              Smokey season in Chiang Mai is exactly like Chiang Mai except its smokey. Bangkok is pretty big actually. You could try to move somewhere further out like On Nut or Nonthaburi and try living more like a local there. There is entertainment everywhere but just maybe not catered to tourists. Other than Bangkok and the North, it’s just Isaan and beaches unfortunately

            Most schizoid are self aware, but rarely seek treatment because we don't feel we have an issue. We just don't need people. The psychiatrist who diagnosed made it almost eem like a super power, and very rare. The issue with schizoid is when they do find someone they wanted to connect with it's hard. Hell, the only reason I got diagnosed because I started dating someone who insisted I go to therapy and that's what came out of it. She thought I may be autistic/aspergers, but there is a lot of overlap. She within the last week told she thinks one day I am going to go to the store for milk and disappear, and the next time she'll see me is online in Thailand with a Thai wife

He's a sophomore in college, when he is not in his dorm room playing video games , he just walks around his college town with his headphones on. He sent me pic related.

                Yea I guess that makes sense. The isolation aspect can be nice, but the thing is, you can live that same lifestyle in a remote part of America too. You just can't avoid Thai people completely and they are completely subhuman. And the foreigners here are also either fellow isolationists like yourself, or delusional room temperature IQ mutts. It makes it hard to make meaningful connections here. But if you're happy here, I'm happy for you.

      Don't listen to these anons, pissing and whining

      This kinda sums it up, though I haven't been there since 2017...can't imagine it got better.
      Also, inland was better but the coastal areas were hot and humid every fuggin day; got old real quick when you cant go outside to enjoy things when its too hot to do so. Some people like that, so be it.

      Currently living in Thailand. Pretty accurate. Antisocial behavior is incredibly widespread in Thailand. It's like everyone has legit autism and has no awareness or capability of even feeling empathy for others. This is most clearly seen in the way they act on the road and in public spaces. There is zero mutual respect unless money is changing hands or they are trying to save face. Don't be fooled by the temporary displays of kindness they put on.

      This is about when the delusional chuddies will chime in and say 'NOOOO ITS PERFECT HERE JUST GO OUTSIDE THE TOURIST AREAS'. Bullshit. It's baked into the society as a whole even if you go to the most remote parts of isaan or the north. There are of course, exceptions to this. Just like there are black people who don't act like Black folk. But that's just it, it's an exception.

      Anyway, OP, living in Thailand is great in some regards, mainly with how cheap it is, but I'm warning you, unless you have clinically diagnosed autism, the moronation of the Thai people will wear you down very quickly. I love my house here, I love the nature, but the second I have to interact with Thai people it sours my day. I'm already planning on going back to america.

      >There is zero mutual respect unless money is changing hands or they are trying to save face.
      Astute and accurate observation.

      Thai people are completely unreceptive to you and any foreigner penetrating their culture. Their culture is for them, not for you. They don’t want you speaking their language or understanding their culture. They only act progressively more friendly and receptive as the anticipation of higher amounts of baht being exchanged is realized, and then once the transaction is complete, their countenance reverts right back to being grumpy and standoffish.

      It’s a pitiful, feral, and completely underdeveloped level of 3rd world childish greed that genuinely disgusts me. Whenever I experience it, I realize that all these other ratshit nations have not a chance in hell of usurping US financial dominion over the world. Imagine a bunch of feral, emotionally stunted countries being able to cobble together some shitskin currency to usurp the dollar; that they can somehow fix their subhuman greed and lack of delayed gratification and economic vision.

      Laughable. I’ll take my cooming trips and then gtfo to maintain the balance in my life and keep reality in view

      I've lived here on and off for years. Previously Phuket and Samui and now Bangkok for the last year. It's the 15th country I've lived in, so I don't see rainbows every day but you find anons like this everywhere - carrying around mental health baggage and always moving conversations to complaining.
      Thai people are lovely, are they quite as genuinely nice as what you perceive when first get here? Probably not. Are they generally a friendlier, smilier, happier culture than that of the UK? Certainly.
      The 'no more than 50%' rules applies to land greater than an acre and houses - you can buy condos outright. Last year tey relaxed the rules on buying land, as long as it is not used for commerce or agriculture. Pretty sure it has to be an acre or less. Regarding condos, expats rarely buy them as they are poor investments, they depreciate very quickly due to Thais believing there are spirits that inhabit old buildings. Everyone wants a new building (even expats) and you'll be left holding a condo with crumbling amenities and a value that freefalls after 10 - 15 years.

        Found the Thai. This is typical Thai behavior you'll experience if you live there. If you point out the obvious, they will deny, deny, deny. If the evidence of your claims is completely irrefutable, they will become filled with blinding rage. There is nothing scarier to a Thai then a reality check. Except maybe ghosts.

      I was living in Thailand for 7 months and dating an Isaan girl until she died in a motorbike accident.

      Thailand is what you make of it. If you enjoy big cities focused on fashion, heavy traffic, public transport, and parties then Bangkok is great. If you enjoy beaches, nice cafes and views, then Phuket is great. Pattaya is mainly for coomers.

      If you are interested in the country side, you will have to learn to speak Thai/Isaan.

      Probably the stupidest thing you could do it buy a condo. Not because it is stupid to buy a condo in thailand, but because its stupid to have no understanding of what life is like there, or the places you like, or transportation, or anything like that and commit to buying. There are more condos than people, so generally it is difficult to sell. You're better off renting at the start to see if you like thailand, and where in Thailand you want to stay. It's diverse.

      As you can see from this thread, it is a controversial place. I get along with Thai people well, and I never had an issue finding pretty women while living in Bangkok or the 4 weeks I spent in Phuket. I love the food, the people, the crazy carefree lifestyle, and I had a great remote job.

      However, now that the woman I loved is dead, I'll probably leave Thailand after the 100 days ceremony. It's a great place to party, and it is a great place for romance, but I think its time for me to move on. I love the people, I love the food, and I loved the opportunities for a farang with money who was with a native who loved him.

      You will definitely have an interesting experience no matter what.

      No one ever bothered me at ATMs. Some women are ugly, welcome to reality. Dating culture really doesn't hang around sugar daddies unless you're meeting women in between Nana/Asoke/gogo bars. Thai women are pretty transparent about if they want a sugar daddy or not. There is wifi everywhere, Sims are easy to get, and AIS wifi is $10/month. I dont date women with tattoos.

          Yeah it sucked. 80 people a day die in motorbike accidents, never thought it would happen to us. I drove motorbike in Bangkok all the time but we got hit out in the provinces.

          If you have a good remote job, definitely check Thailand out. But also, go to other places too. Bangkok is one of my favorite cities, but holy shit the traffic is the worst in the world.
          There are scammers, hookers, freelancers who might trick you into romance, but there are also students, hard workers, and trustworthy people. Most of the people who talk shit just had a bad experience, and usually its the result of their own personality, habits, and choices.

          Imagine being 50 years old, bald, fat, at a club for sex, thinking you can get one of the 18-21 year olds to fall in love with you by buying them things, and then getting angry when you find out they were just using you and never planned to actually commit to you.
          Also, some relationships just don't work out, that's how it is in the entire world, but for some reason foreigners in Thailand really seethe when things don't go exactly how they wanted it to.

          Again, bad traffic, many places are densely populated, one of the largest wealth gaps in the world, and sometimes the weather is incredibly hot and you won't want to walk at all.

          However, low cost of living for the most part, but that's up to you. I've spent 50,000 baht in one month, and I've also spent 50,000 baht in 3 days. There is a lot of fun to have, a lot of beautiful nature to see, and there are plenty of good people there. Be reminded that you are a foreigner - Thai people will be nice to you, but they've seen 10 million people just like you come and go, so they don't exactly view their relationship with you as long lasting/trustworthy unless if you prove it overtime.

          I hated Cambodia, but some people love it. I love Thailand, some people hate it. Bangkok,Pattaya,Phuket, and maybe Chiang Mai. Check them out, don't buy a condo yet.

            Mate, there are so many farang here that think of themselves in the exact same way. There is this weird superiority complex amongst many foreigners as they live in there own little bubbles. I have a secret for you, a lot of expats aren't much different then you. You aren't special and that doesn't invalidate any of the complaints made.

            I'm assuming you have minimal life experience in general, let alone amongst Thai people. You probably just talked to your gf, and maybe a couple locals and that was it to come to your conclusion that Thai people are le awesome xD

            Your girlfriend died exactly because of the perpetual toxicity that runs through all levels of Thai society. They are all childlike in how they act. Everything is about saving face and money. They do not care about one another except in the most superficial way. The food is unclean, the traffic is unsafe, the corruption is widespread, and inequality is extreme. This will never change because a Thai can never be wrong. If you ever try to talk logically with a Thai, they won't have it. Once you get to the point of understanding, they will either quickly change the topic, insult you, or tell you to just leave the country. I have spent a lot of time here and met many thais ranging from farmers to professors to higher ranking government officials. It is impossible to have a meaningful conversation with any of them. They may be able to deceive you that they are open and friendly, but rest assured, it's all an illusion. And you've fallen for it.

            If you actually loved your girlfriend, you should be able to see through this facade.

              I said most of the people who talk shit have that description.

              Every young, decently good person I've met in Thailand, wether they be students or people for holiday, only have good things to say.

              It's not really ever a good idea to base your post off of assumptions, and you admit that's what you're doing. I don't know how anyone could live in Thailand and
              >only talk to your gf and a couple locals
              I've met a lot of people, and I admit that some are good and some are bad. There are 13 million people in Bangkok. I don't think she died because of perpetual toxicity, she died because a truck was speeding instead of slowing down at an intersection and it killed her and not me.

              I don't know why so many people have this idea that because they're cynics and see the worst in people, that they are wise and know the truth. I've been living in the Middle east for 1 1/2 before this, and you could say the exact same thing about arabs.

              Its the same with you. I say you're wrong, and you insult me. It's not exclusive to Thai people, it's the result of how you interact with people. You probably have the need to be right all the time, and that's why you constantly get into arguments and people get tired of interacting with you. Again, it's probably your personality, since you seem to run into it everywhere.

              And yes, I'll admit again, most expacts are the same as me. And yes, I agreed that there are many complaints to me made. There are scammers, prostitutes, and people who don't give a shit about you in Thailand, just like all over the world?

                The law in Thailand is a joke because of the culture of saving face. Traffic laws don't get enforced because of saving face. Nothing will ever get done or will change because of saving face. No one will ever try to push change upwards because of saving face.

                The culture of saving face and fragile egos is rampant across the country and is the root of many of it's problems. If you could see more then 2 layers deep this would be incredibly obvious.

                >young students and tourists only have good things to say

                Why are there so many old expats who move there? Is it because Thailand is such a terrible palce with rampant social issues?

                Stop confusing cynicism with wisdom. There is nothing wise about not enjoying your time and having bad relationships with the people you meet.

                Saving face and fragiles egos is rampant across humanity, I did not notice it anymore than my times in other countries. Just because you saw the bad side of people and choose to focus on that does not make you special, nor more insightful.

                Hospitality and being nice to strangers, without actually caring about said strangers, should only be expected. That's why I said
                >Thai people will be nice to you, but they've seen 10 million people just like you come and go, so they don't exactly view their relationship with you as long lasting/trustworthy unless if you prove it overtime.

                This is true for most people across the world, not just Thailand. But I will agree, police in Thailand really don't do much besides collect money from foreigners and clubs. But that's not really saving face, that's more apathy.

                Anyway, enjoy walking around with shit on your shoe and thinking you're a genius because you found out everybody turns their nose upwards.

                I'll continue to enjoy my life in Thailand and traveling to other countries, making friends and lovers along the way

                2nd highest car incident fatality rate in the world. People frequently break traffic laws. Every day you see people blindly driving into traffic without stopping. You see people driving on the wrong side of the road. You see people driving without helmets. You see people parking in the middle of the road. All of this is illegal. Nothing is ever done. The law is merely a way for the higher ups to save face. They don't care and the Thai people don't care either.

                this is his point, she died because a lack of awareness or lack of caring about others. the driver was in the right in the drivers mind. everyone everywhere is playing fast and loose with the rules because they are more important and hence 80 people are killed on the road every day. it is a broken society, or more accurately a society which has not evolved to deal with modernity

                This is why I don’t drive. There’s no “logic” to Thai driving that you can study and apply. It is straight up anarchy, so you’re basically just driving defensively moment to moment and while you have to assume everyone else doesn’t give a shit at all, won’t stop for you, won’t obey even basic traffic laws etc. that’s just too dangerous for me.

                I’ll accept riding a hookers pillion like some prized piece of meat to have baht tenderized out of it, if it means I don’t die

              Why the frick everyone obsesses over Thailand is beyond comprehension. You are a walking ATM to those "people".

              Yeah dude you’re right. That’s my one issue with Thailand, everywhere I go people expect me to pay for goods and services.
              A drink at the bar? I have to pay.
              A ride somewhere? I have to pay.
              Buying a girl a drink at a bar or inviting them out on a date? Unbelievably enough, im expected to pay.

              It’s so different from everywhere else in the world in this aspect. It’s like they think just because I flew half way around the world and stay in fancy hotels or luxury condominiums that I can afford this incredibly low cost of living. Life was better back in America when mom and dad payed for everything. Fricking Thai “people”

                You sound mentally stunted from the trauma of losing your girlfriend. I wish you the best, but don't let it blind you. There are people and systems you should be blaming that could've prevented this from happening, you should recognize this.

                You’re struggling to accept the fact that accidents happen all over the world.
                I don’t know what you think I don’t recognize? You think I don’t see the terrible traffic? You think I don’t see the police not doing anything?
                Like in Philadelphia where I see heroin addicts slumped over in the sidewalks and gangs riding ATV’s on the streets? Or in the Middle East where people are driving Lamborghinis in one area and the labor camps of immigrants are walled off and hidden?

                I’m not sure you understand that this is the real world, and laws and police literally do not prevent people from breaking the laws. And this is ignoring the fact that fatal car accidents literally happen all the time all over the world.

                >there are people and systems you should be blaming
                You’re sound like a liberal snowflake. I don’t blame anyone for her death, I thank her for giving her life for mine and honor her memory in my life. I’m happy and optimistic. You’re cynical. I don’t understand this idea that happy people have to be stupid - I see the same world you do. I just choose to focus on the silver lining because it’s a blessing to be alive and I make the most out of what I get.

                Please tell me, what country do you enjoy since you think Thailand is so terrible? What country do you think does not have corruption?

      Rare case where ancient culture of hospitality coincides with tourism-oriented economy. Only thing is you gotta treat people as friends, not as service people. If your restaurant server seems slow and tired, offer to buy him a coffee and let him sit at your table, for example. Also friendly stray dogs on every corner. Locals care for them, tourists feed them = very happy, friendly and nice doggos.

    Like even if we are talking Southeast Asia, you have Malaysia, Vietnam, Philippines, etc.

    There are various countries in that immediate area, so why do I see Thailand mentioned with like 5x the frequency as the others? (and yes I do mean reasons outside of cooming).

    Thai real estate is incredibly overpriced, double for condos, and double for foreigners, Also they make you buy from developers (suckers price) and if you're a foreigner good luck reselling it. In all honesty you're probably not gonna get a great resale value on your condo (both because you're foreign and thailands demographics) so unless you specifically want to live their all your life I'd suggest just renting. Thailand is cheap enough that you can switch from the city to the beach for a few months if you just feel like it. Also don't think you need to buy a condo just to get a visa. There are plenty of cheap or even free visas.

      A cat scan at Yahnee private hospital in bangkok was like 8000-12000 baht though. But there are plenty of options for expat health insurance.

          Thai's get it for free at government hospitals. I havea lot of experience with both private and public hospitals in Bangkok

          >2500 baht
          Recently in a motorbike accident. Xrays are 500 THB each at St Louis Hospital (private). Great value

          Nice, hopefully you're okay

            I'm wrong and you're right. They only get it for free at their specific government hospital. The other public hospitals just offer them much lower prices. My apologies, I didn't mind spending 2500 baht. I've paid more for routine check ups in America.

    Thailand was good to move to 5 years ago

    Now visas are getting more expensive, real estate is getting more expensive and the government is trying to pretend like their country is more than just a watering hole for drunken expats and perverts trying to frick ladyboys so they're trying to make it harder for normal folks to move there and want richer people to move in.

    That will lead to even more gentrification and a bigger bubble for real estate where a dumpster will cost 400k usd at some point.

    For these visa prices i'd go elsewhere honestly, it's not even a tax haven and they're acting like they're doing you a favor by letting you buy an overpriced visa.

      I cannot believe people seriously pay for an elite visa unless they’re a literal millionaire.

      There are multiple schemes, albeit with minor inconvenience, that you can utilize to save you literally tens of thousands of dollars.

    Think of Mexico, but safer. Except that shooting yesterday. Still don't feel unsafe and haven't a day I've been here. But I don't frick around the coom corners doing sketchy shit. Did a fair bit of traveling here and in Laos. You can get good accommodation for dirt cheap or overpriced shit accommodation. One thing that's consistent is that the repairs are always hack jobs and you could do a better job with no experience if you just put in a little effort.
    Yes in done occasions your your transactions are just that, transactional. They want your money and that's it, but I just wanted what they were selling so it's all good. Use the Meetup app to find international events. I found a smash bros meetup and tournaments.
    I found a job in one week here, but that's probably not the norm. I just went to the right meetup and networked. If your coomimg in pattaya, Nana, soi cowboy or Phuket then you will not find any opportunities outside of an sti. This country is what you make of it. If you think you're going to be a star because you have foreign cash then guess what, there's always someone with more money than you. I came here with the goal of using the fact that it's cheap America so that I could improve my life and give up old habits and I'm making good progress.
    I've considered cooming and honestly the idea of getting the sloppiest deep throat bj ever for very little money is tempting, but whey would that actually accomplish? Am I going to look back at years of anonymous coom and partying and feel like it meant anything? No probably not. Not to say that going out once and a while is bad. I met many Europeans and Aussies here. Even a Canadian or two. And I'm in contact with some of them to this day. Thailand like any country is what you make of it.

      Dude it’s literally the driving force of my life and has been since 2017. The power of coom allowed me to pay off my student loans in 1.5 years, avoid unwanted pregnancy, work 60 hours a week, and max my retirement accounts. All of that directly or indirectly related to my capacity to go coom more

                This is why men generally suck at happy endings in fiction. Men, especially intellectual men, have a hard time believing in happiness. Anything joyful rings untrue, or small, or naive. Though the Bible does say, to increase knowledge is to increase sorrow. The flipside, "ignorance is bliss"

                Wise people are happy. You’re stupid if you think being smart results in misery.

                Negativity, pessimism, and cynicism are synonymous with wisdom or intellect. Evil is not more truthful than good. Evil things happen and good things happen.

                You choose to focus on evil and say since you’ve seen bad things, therefore that is the true nature of it. But that’s not the case and never will be the case. Things grow. Good people do bad things, and bad people do good things. Believing that since you focus on the bad makes you smarter than someone who
                observes the bad and the good collectively is just a pathetic excuse for you to justify your suffering and pathetic life.

                Wise people are happy. This justification that misery is from observing the truth and being an intellectual is just as bullshit as people who are “smart” but work shitty jobs and have amassed no wealth, nor created something of value and substance. Just because you read or did well in school does not make you smart.

                You’re only smart if you can take what you learn and understand, and then use it to benefit yourself and others in real situations.

                Believing the truth has to be negative and happiness is a facade is your own personal delusion. It sounds like a difficult burden to carry that is easily alleviated.

                This probably sounds intelligent to stupid people

                At least I'm happy. I have everything I need, can afford the things I want, have a family that loves me, and have never had an issue finding women who fall in love with me.

                It's the kind of 'deep' thinking you would expect to hear from some 19 year olds YouTube video where they are exploring the 'real' Thailand AKA some of the most developed areas of downtown Bangkok. Some of the people on this board actually don't realize just how stupid they sound.

                >t. schizoid

                It's the opposite of deep thinking. It's basic observation that if you're not happy, it's probably your fault. And using intelligence as an excuse to be miserable, or using cynicism to feign intellect, is laughable.

                But it's cool, you live your life and I'll continue providing for my family, being able to afford gifts for my friends, and being happy while traveling the world.

                Maybe one day I'll be broke and have nothing, and when that day comes I'll just get back up and continue living happily.

                I'm gonna replying to this thread now. Good luck with your lives anons.

For me, I've only had nice experiences here, but overall, Thailand is the definition of soulless. I've been to Indonesia, and it was a breath of fresh air really. Random people conversed with me, showed me the art they made, didn't understand a word they were saying, but they just smiled at me and kept going. It's how Thailand used to be before globalism. Sri Lanka is the same by the way, extremely friendly people, who have soul.

I didn't have many conversations beyond basic pleasantries but that's to be expected. I can say that people would stop in the street to help me; that servers at restaurants would use google translate on their phone to ask where I was from; that I was invited to watch Muay Thai in small villages as the only foreigner. I struggle to think of a single negative interaction I had over 6 months there, but being a Chiang Mai gay may give me rose coloured glasses.

              I've felt quite similar about that. Also keep this in mind on why it can seem like Thai are worse: vast majority of the world's information is in languages other than Thai. Thai people then don't have access to the same information outlets as the rest of us. A common tactic is to isolate people and try to brainwash them.
              If they're more isolated then they're easier to manipulate and abuse.

      No shit. There's a reason why long term expats who have lived here for over a decade are so jaded. You are the kind of foreigner they see as a cashcow to be milked and you just don't realize it because you've had minimal real interactions with Thai people.

You also ignore all the unsolicited, unrewarded help I received, & the invites I received after money had changed hands/for no money at all. Everyone needs money to live, that's a fact of life, but when it comes to CM- the hassle vs the amount paid is better than anywhere else in the world. It's peanuts and you aren't scammed. Tell me where it's better? I've been aIl over SEA, East Asia, Central Asia, Middle East and Europe. If you're on a budget you can't beat it. Maybe some central American or African shithole has a better ease of living/friendliness to cost ratio, but I doubt it.

                You can get a substandard house for cheaper. If you want a house built up to western standards it will have a western price tag. The construction industry is so globalized there really isn't that big of a price difference anymore. Add on top of that the fact that you can't own the land and you have to live in the third world. Also, foreigners are almost always blamed in one way shape or form politically as well, so the future is highly uncertain. Learn Thai and listen to some of the shit they say. The Thai people hate foreigners that want to live here.

      I'd like to know also but details are scarce: I'm always a bit skeptical when guys mention that and it turns out they're freelancing on Fiveer (at best).
      US based companies will not work with an American SWE outside the US because of the tax implications, security concerns having their proprietary code base being accessed outside the US and the time zone differential of 12-15 hours and if he's working with a US team he'll basically be working from 9PM to 5AM.

      I work in cyber security with a M.Sc. and various certifications and would love to earn my USD salary while working in SEA. I recently saw a story on IG where this guy posted his typical "work day" and he basically opened his laptop at a table for an hour or so while sipping thai whiskey with other "nomads" and then spent the rest of the "workday" slacklining and playing frisbee on the beach and apparently worked in "cybersecurity" when I raised the same questions mentioned above; I got called a hater and was blocked.

        Honestly in your case, you could just work for a local company. Cybersecurity is an internationao skill that will come with an international paycheck in Thailand. Companies like Agoda, binance, CMC, and many others have offices in Thailand hiring SWEs and security specialists. Only downside if you'd be more likely to have to live in Bangkok.

            Yep. Most international companies in Bangkok require you to speak English. Also foreigners almost always get paid way more then thais, and Thai people are very well aware of this fact. Companies prefer to hire (white) farang generally.

So glad I am fricking off again in just over a week, albeit to somewhere in Europe so it's gonna be same shit but at least the weather will be nicer. This was my experience so far:

    No where to refill water at train station and it'll be £2 for a bottle frick you, train station ticket machine only wanted to sell me a £55 ticket as "the cheapest option" instead of a £15 one I could clearly see online on my phone (ofc I got the online one, which I also could not get through their official app so I had to piss around on my phone for a while to get it), fricking homeless looking chav c**t pestering for money, trash all over and no one cares, having to listen to some moron argue with everyone for ages because he missed his train, carriage full of drunk football morons the whole train back, no wifi or mobile signal for 90% of the train journey, passive aggressive black taxi driver cause I didn't tip a <5min trip

    If you live in the UK, contribute and pay taxes, you're basically a terrorist at this point because you're stopping this fricking dump from having a final collapse and putting us all out of our misery

    Yet, outside my window on the street far below I can hear this falang crowd at a restaurant and it is the most annoying sound possible. Between the muffles bass beats of the music their indistinct rapid chatter carries up to my window along with ten's of people doing these almost forced sounding laughs "HA HA HA HA HA HA" belonging to white men or sometimes sounds like an asian woman which is especially cringe inducing. Whaf the frick do they have to be so cornily happy and extroverted about? That they are in Bangkok HAHAHAHA?

      I’m assuming you mean for casual wear. You can keep your pants but for tops shorter sleeves are good. An option are block coloured hawaiian shirts. They are extremely popular in SEA now. I’m reasonably built and I personally wear them a size up because its more casual that way. Avoid actual hawaiian prints unless you wanna scream to the world you’re a tourist. For material a high quality polyester is sufficient, but when meeting girls I prefer cotton because it visually looks softer and more comfy. I got the shirt in pic for like 200 baht on Shopee and I wear it to temples and to clubs
