      The building is a temple complex, and the white things are just decorating monuments Thai kings built for their previous kings, tbh. Only the big one, which supposedly contains Buddha's remains is worshiped.

      as others have said, you are not "moving" here. you are merely visiting temporarily. you can visit Thailand up to 6 times in a year, getting 30 days at a time.

      >Is thailand a good place to move to with 15k in savings?
      If you're going to a tourist area the locals would immediately know how much money you have just by looking at you and then will start to charge obscene prices for everything you ask for. Sure, you could haggle aggressively and take them down every time, but overtime it will get depressing, knowing all people care about is your money. You could probably live on 15k for a few months.
      >I live in hell
      But then again, I don't know where do you live and what do you consider to be hell. In any case you can't just "move" into Thailand for more than 1-3 months (including extensions) without some sort of a visa plan, like for work or studying, unless you're going full-fugitive-survival-mode. You can also purchase a visa for five years but it costs about 25k.
      >must move
      When I was in Thailand all I cared about was prostitutes and drugs, but no matter how much I got, I still felt empty. I'm planning to go again next year but this time it's going to be some sort of a pilgrimage. Not in the religious sense, but just to try and absorb everything. I still intend to go after the hookers and the drugs, but this time I'll actually try to travel and see the parks, temples, shrines, museums, etc.

      >Any accomodation recommendations?
      On a 15k budget for an unlimited period of time I'd suggest to find either some shitty one-room hotel room with a broken ceiling fan or a local apartmentairbnb. Something between 500 to 1k a month.

      the vast majority of ripoffs in Thailand involve transport for hire. you can usually find a hotel near the bus terminal or railway station, but still, the heat and traffic make walking around an ordeal.

          Of course you can use rideshare apps in Bangkok. Bolt is very affordable. But outside the big city, good luck finding a rideshare driver.

          Trust me, [...], you'll waste more money and time for an inferior product in the end. And that goes for all of Asia.

          If you are staying near the beach, you are going to pay a premium for everything. Any beach resort destination in the world is like that.

          It's the Asian mentality. They're the real israelites.

          Not sure vietnam would be better. Isnt it dirtier? Thailand seems more developed. How do you stay longer than tourist visas allow?

          Piles of reeking trash bags on the sidewalk are a common sight throughout Thailand. Litter is usually swept up. As far as development, parts of Thailand are highly developed, others are primitive and backwards. Kanchanaburi definitely falls into the latter category.

            He doesn't want to go there to live like an impoverished thai factory worker living 8 to a dorm room, you stupid Black person.

            He wants to go there and enjoy a freedom and quality of life he isn't enjoying in his home country, which means not living in a slum 4km from thr mrt station.

            Nobody said it wasn't possible to live cheaply in Thailand you shit for brain mental moron. We implied it was likely his savings won't last very long since foreigners tend to wind up spending quite a lot more than average cost of living to be happy and comfortable in Thailand.

            You think this goof wants to flee one bad situation to sit in a room with no AC and stare at a wall all day just to save money? No. He wants to live, and he's going to find something that interests him and he's going to blow his money on it like 99% of westerners do their first time trying to live in SEA.

            Stop giving shitting, wrong, moronic advice. Especially if you lack all empathy and common sense.

    You and a million other lost losers have had the same idea over the past few years and now Thailand is super saturated and prices are inflated to shit. Yes, its cheaper than the US, but 15k for any standard of living that is just the bare minimum of respectable is going to be eaten through in about two months, three at best these days, and that's with eating local Thai food every night, staying at bare bones 2 to 3 star hotels and maybe the occasional splurge on something nice like a decent restaurant or a short time service one or twice a week, pretty bare minimum. You can forget dating or meeting "normal" Thai women if you're trying to stretch out your budget for as long as possible, they will not be interested in dating a tight ass farang with a shithole room on some slum soi and they'll be wanting to do go out and do fun stuff which means even more $$$, and if youre trying to stretch your budget out you're not going to be able to afford them. You can forget the Western concept of free, no strings attached sex with women in Thailand- with Thai girls and farangs its all about the money, and they have more options now than ever before so be prepared to spend or they'll dump you like a bad habit for the next walking ATM machine.

      15k in 3 months at best? are you out of fricking mind lol?

      how the frick are you spending 5 grand a month ?

      You can get a nice condo for like 25-30k baht, shop at big C, meal prep for the week and add on maybe a little bit more for electricity and MRT transport and that's your core costs covered.

      If you're getting hookers everynight then maybe I can see it but honestly you can live pretty cheaply to a good standard there.

        What are you expecting out of this trip exactly? Literally what the frick is the point of traveling half way across the world just to live in a studio apartment and go grocery shopping every night for a couple of months? What exactly are you expecting from such a trip that that is going to improve your situation versus wherever you are at currently? If you want your 15k to last 3 months or longer in Thailand youre going to have to cut back drastically on anything fun like eating out at good restaurants and partaking in night life and basically just live basic as frick, and that means your opportunities to meet women, whether they are "normal" women or prostitutes, is also going to be pretty much nil. Completely pointless.

            Just being in a different area can do you good. Some of my time in Thailand was literally just walking around and eating things, sometimes talking to people, and that still was much better than suffering in my part of America. I had better living accomodations, more interesting food, and access to more interesting personalities than I had in the shit suburbs I was accustomed to for all around the same money for that time period.
            Just being in a more interesting and lively area is good for you than rotting in some matrix bubble.

            Yeah probably, but there's no job market or any kind of upward mobility in Thailand compared to the US. Thailand is and always will be a country that exists solely to take as much money as they can from tourists and expats in exchange for trashy dopamine rushes before they find an excuse to kick them out of the country after a certain amount of time, it is not and never was meant to be a place to make money or improve your lot in life. It is a place to spend money, get your kicks in for a few weeks or a few months at most, and then return back home- and the government doesn't even try to hide that fact or sell you on anything else- for everything else, you are still better off trying to improve your lot in life back in the States, there is no opportunity in Thailand.

                Stir frying doesn't use much oil, it's considered one of the healthiest frying techniques. Fresh kale, baby corn, tender pieces of chicken breast, all good and wholesome ingredients. The wide noodles are very good at absorbing the flavor.
                You should stop being so mindbroken. Restaurants in Thailand are not owned by corporations, they don't charge absurd markups to pay off bank loans, and ingredients do not come pre-packaged from Sysco or US Foods.
                This delicious omelet salad cost $1.41. In America, it would run you $20 + tax + service charge + tip + requested donation to our charity of the month.

But in all seriousness, 15k can easily let you live a Thai middle class level lifestyle for about a year before you need to return home and work at McDonald's.

                He's not wrong. Stir fried noodles aren't healthy just because they were made in a pot. It's just starch covered in cooking oil with an egg on there and maybe some mystery meat.

                Thai fruits do indeed have the pesticide problem he mentioned. You should soak them in water and wash at home first before consuming them.

                Lots of produce has dubious sources. Most leafy greens are grown with sprayed shitwater and pesticides so washing them very carefully is a good idea also, but even then it's not enough.

                Just because everyone is poor and the food is cheap doesn't mean it's automatically safe and good for you lmao. Asia in general has wildly inconsistent food production safety standards and enforcement.

                Thats without even getting into morality of procurement and packaging. A shit ton of thai seafood is farmed by literal burmese slaves who they capture illegally crossing the border or living in Thailand, then they sell to shrimp farms or fishing vessels.

                If you eat shrimp in Thailand it's raised and handled by slaves, probably. Don't care? Good for you, you're going native. Thais don't care either.

                The average Thai life expectancy is higher than that of Poland and Hungary. Also, what were you reading? There are no slaves in shrimp farming, only illegal fishing, which is run by Indonesians in international waters.
                >Thais don't care either.
                No, the world generally doesn't care, the fish caught by slave laborers are sold all over the world, which is why a company like CP is among the top global markets. Same shit with the Child labor mining Coltan in Congo.

                Anon doesn't understand what a currency exchange rate is. 40 baht for a typical Thai is a normal price.
                Only fry dishes use oil, the only oil average Thai noodles use is garlic oil.

                That dish is literally glistening from all the oil its covered in.

Sit down Thai restaurants on busy, traffic heavy streets are the worst scams of them all.

                I don't mind rice and carbs, but the ratio of carbs to protein is abysmal. An average Japanese meal is like 60% carbs, 30% fats and 10% protein. And like I said, there's lots of high calorie fats (curries, ramen broth, okonomiyaki, etc) and lots of fried foods (gyoza, croquets, tempura, takoyaki, etc). It's not that healthy at all, they just eat very little food in general and they're cities are extremely walkable so they stay active. Just because youre used to a diet of McSlop back in the US doesn't mean the majority of Japanese or Thai food is healthy either, because most of it isn't, they just eat smaller portions and don't live 3/4's of their lives sitting on their asses in cars stuck in commuter highway traffic- they walk, take trains, etc.

                >carbs to protein
                Brother you can easily order meat-based dishes at literally any restaurant in Thailand. I had woodfired chicken and pork balls for 150 baht just yesterday.

                If you're ordering pad thai then kvetching like an unfathomable moron that there's noodles in your meal you just might have severe brain damage.

                Thai vendors are called "food on order," which means you can order the vendor or the cook to use pig fat oil and not put MSG, or sugar, into your food. If you are so autistic about seed oil, carbs, or any healthy things, you can buy a cheap Thai brand of air fryer and buy only certified organic veggies at a Lotus or Big C mall. And those are still a lot cheaper than US farm products.

                https://i.imgur.com/BE1Y1am.jpg

                Maybe street vendors but I've had a remarkable amount of sit down food that was very high quality and cheap.

                You can watch honest reviews from channels like Small Brained American; basically, avoid deep-fried vendors. Though I think Springroll vendors are quite safe,.

          the point of spending money in thailand is to get laid, not just to survive as cheaply as possible

          thailand might be the one country where it's cheaper to hire a prostitute every night than to impress someone into doing it with you for free

          I was literally just listing off the exact thing I did... hardly spent more than £1.5k a month.

          Had a really nice condo. The grocery shopping was done once per week and it was delivered... I ate out occasionally for dates etc. Although Thai food tastes nice it's usually got addtional extras which aren't great to be eating every day and very oily, usually lacking micronutrients. Especially if you're eating street food shit. The portions were usually too small for me too and it makes it hard to count macros.

          I'm SighSee so cooking lunch / dinner for 2 hours on a saturday morning to get enough calories for the entire week is better than having to walk to 7/11 to eat processed shite most days.

          Still went out most nights, met plenty of women and the only prostitution I engaged with was a few massages every now and then. If you're a moron pay pig trying to flex in soi cowboy to the isaan dogs every night then yeah that's going to rack up.

          You and a million other lost losers have had the same idea over the past few years and now Thailand is super saturated and prices are inflated to shit. Yes, its cheaper than the US, but 15k for any standard of living that is just the bare minimum of respectable is going to be eaten through in about two months, three at best these days, and that's with eating local Thai food every night, staying at bare bones 2 to 3 star hotels and maybe the occasional splurge on something nice like a decent restaurant or a short time service one or twice a week, pretty bare minimum. You can forget dating or meeting "normal" Thai women if you're trying to stretch out your budget for as long as possible, they will not be interested in dating a tight ass farang with a shithole room on some slum soi and they'll be wanting to do go out and do fun stuff which means even more $$$, and if youre trying to stretch your budget out you're not going to be able to afford them. You can forget the Western concept of free, no strings attached sex with women in Thailand- with Thai girls and farangs its all about the money, and they have more options now than ever before so be prepared to spend or they'll dump you like a bad habit for the next walking ATM machine.

          thai food is all oily fried crap covered in sugar and pesticides, so congratulations you've managed to climb maybe one rank higher than typical mcdonalds fast food. its cheap for a reason.

        It is not worth traveling to Thailand anymore. And that "passport bro" shit is moronic. I hope every single guy doing that loses every dollar they have and I hope the libtards going there get some bones broken or land a few decades in a Thai jail.

        >You and a million other lost losers have had the same idea over the past few years and now Thailand is super saturated and prices are inflated to shit

        This is complete fact. There is so much US dollar and Euro floating around there they don't even care to do their job. The businesses just wait for you to walk in and pay high prices to pay for them to continue to do nothing. If you think we're lying then go there and find out.

    In the smaller cities of Laos, you can get relatively luxurious accomodations for $10-15 a night. If buy local food in the markets, Laos is very cheap right now. If you want to stretch a buck, it's a good place to go. I don't think $15k would last long in Thailand.

    Nomadhub and numbeo both show that Da Nang or Nha Trang in Vietnam are the very best spots. Cheap apartments. Cheap hotels. Best bang for your buck. After that is Chiang Mai Thailand but it's smoky season so the air is literally the worst in the world until Songkran in Mid-May (yeah I'm thinking about Mid-May, hahaha).

    Bangkok is also good value and all around #1 but it will be about double the cost. 'Nam looks like you could do well with $500/mo Bangkok is AT LEAST 1k.

    Go on the local apartment websites and facebook marketplace/groups. AirBNB is for absolute suckers and you'll pay 3x as much.

    Another place I found would be most cities in Japan outside of Tokyo. The Yen is super weak right now so the living expenses are actually on-par with SEA kek. Use Gaijinhub because most landlords won't rent to foreigners because they're super racist.

        It's a lot more chill than that. This is rural Thailand, not rural Mexico. Lots of pickup trucks, a fair bit of beer drinking, but no circus music and no cartel henchmen. Kanchanaburi province is very welcoming to visitors. A bunch of schoolgirls on the train would wave at every group of tourists they saw. Everyone has been glad to do business. Taxi truck drivers are very insistent and don't seem trustworthy, though. So far I have refused their services and stayed near railway stations.

          Is the implication here that you’ll get ripped off or more sinister?

          I’ve just been in several very hair raising situations because I decided to go off the reservation. Speaking Thai is why I think I got through the situations unharmed, but every time I’ve “gone local” I’ve encountered some very feral and unsettling Thai men.
          >full face tats
          >leering eye contact
          >paperthin smiles
          I speak Thai and I think for whatever reason that puts them at ease but I felt like I was a prey animal and they were waiting for some kind of generic foreigner cultural faux pas that could be used as an excuse to get violent. I don’t think this suddenly goes away in isaan.

                Read “inside Thai society” by Niels mulder. There’s no way I’m gonna be able to answer that question without writing an essay. The TDLR is that Asians have a heightened sense of awareness for, and consideration of, not disturbing each others social reputation. Especially in a social setting where other people can bear witness to it.

                White people used to be the same way. Being a well-mannered gentleman was extremely important if you wanted to get anywhere in life.
                But the Asian mind is hyper-protective of status and strongly averse to criticism, while American whites are much more dynamically competitive and open-minded when it comes to constructive criticism or ideas for improvement.

                Yes that’s a good way of putting it. Asians have a pathetic, infantile, unexamined, and underdeveloped self, so there is “nothing” beyond the physical and readily perceptive manifestations of their identity such as their hierarchical position at a job or their literal physical appearance. It’s scary to think about. They’re literally a mask that is concealing a dangerous void

                I had this bathroom attendant suddenly do that wide eyed but still poker face look of surprise (when you insult Asians) because I handed him a 10 baht coin after he massaged my shoulders at the urinal. He followed me with his gaze all the way to when I walked out the door so I knew I fricked up somehwere. I came back and handed him a 20 baht note when I came in to pee later that night and explained briefly “I’m still learning thai culture” (in Thai) and that smoothed it over. If I had just ignored it he probably would’ve snapped my neck or stabbed me when I went back in the bathroom.

                This was in lad prao by the way. Random ghetto Thai club I was dragged to by a Korean illegal immigrant tomboy. My advice is stay on the reservation because Everytime I leave the reservation these dicey situations pop up

            What provinces did you visit? I was in northern Mexico when all the cartel members who lived in America returned to visit their families in Mexico. Texas plates ruled the streets. You know most of them brought guns down into Mexico with them.
            Not sure anywhere in Thailand comes close to the situation a couple hours' drive from Texas.
            And no, I don't chit chat with gangbangers even if I speak their language. Made the mistake of trying my new Spanish skills on some corrupt Mexican municipal cops who pulled me over on a mountain road and were convinced they could extort me on some charge or another. After I was cleared, they showed me pictures of their friends harvesting the peyote, making clear that they were merely protecting the official operation from freelancers. Then they demanded $20 for the hassle. I refused, he insisted, I refused, defused with distracting conversation, he yelled "adelante" and drove off. next time I passed them on the same highway, they turned on their four-ways and waved at me. they never found out where I had been for the two days.

    taxi drivers in Nam Tok talked shit as I carried my duffel to the railway station after one night in a local homestay. 700 THB room, 70 THB beer, 170 THB food. Despite all the paying, they still wanted me gone.
    the train back to Bangkok cost 2.3 cents per mile for foreigners...0.59 USD 1/100 cents per mile for Thais. No A/C. Temps as high as 41 C in the river valley. Bangkok's 33 C humidity felt like air conditioning, no joke.
    I saw an old guy in Nam Tok push the face of an youngster who got up in his face insisting on selling him food at the train station benches. Seems foreigners are not the only ones getting harassed by aggressive sellers up here.
    An old lady spilled some shoeshine juice on the floor of the train car, dipped her plastic sandals in it, then a guy across the aisle from her gave her a huge wad of napkins. she wiped the reeking solvent up and tossed the napkins out the window as the train rode on.
    A foreigner's adopted cat meowed incessantly through the whole ride.
    The last stretch of the ride into Thonburi passed through slum housing which was Philippines tier. Built on swamps, motorcycle paths crossing the tracks, structures within inches of the train.
    The first time I visited Thailand, I swore this place was not Third World. Now, coming from Malaysia, Thailand feels like a step down. Rooms are always superior, however. And I prefer the Thai flavors to the Malay cuisine.

      Just forget women in general and find something you personally enjoy doing that brings you greater fulfillment in life, preferably something that will either make you money or make you make better decisions with your money. If you asked me in 2012 I would've cringed, but in 2024 MGTOW is 100% right. I am finding far more enjoyment and fulfillment learning about things like Finance and AI than I ever did wasting time messing around with women- American, Thai or otherwise. They are all the same no matter where in the world you are, just cloaked in different illusory disguises. The Passport Bro movement is a completely monetized, profit motivated grift trying to sell you something that hasn't existed for years now, they're all scammers just like the overseas "trad" women that they promote.

        Good for you if you can keep your mind occupied and happy without chasing women.

        Still, if dating women of the Asian race is what gives meaning to your life, go for it. Have fun, spend money, whatever. Don't let sexless males pull you back into the crab bucket of misery. But don't brag about how much money you wasted on prostitutes either, like the "$10,000 in two months" anon.

          I'd say more than just "alot", they've become complete and total snobby narcissists now, and addicted to social media even more than the West. Too many simps online coupled with the Passport Bro bullshit totally killed meeting women overseas. I mean it was always a con in one or another, whether it was being duped into taking care of the girls family, or paying sponsorship, or paying sin sod for the wedding, or for being forced by the Thai government to sign any property you buy over to your Thai wife, etc etc. It's always been somewhat of a scam, but at least men felt like they got something out of it back then... but now? Forget it. You just got all the cons of the Thai dating/family culture with none of the benefits. These girls aren't even playing the "Long Game" with "Girlfriend Experience" anymore, now its just "give me as much money/presents as you can and frick off" in between milking simps from overseas for even more money or validation online. Not even white women have the game on that much of an easy mode in 2024, Thai women are placed on a whole different pedestal these days and it shows.

    Some kids running a roadside eatery last night didn't want to do business with a foreigner, particularly a grumpy and solitary one. It's best to get up and walk away once it becomes clear that your presence is not welcomed (as opposed to staff being merely backlogged). But I persisted, so I got a lousy meal, an overcharge, and snarky comments in Thai which made the other diners chuckle. I paid the menu price and did not react to the clowning around.

    Most of central Phitsanulok is grimy small industry and shuttered shops around the big market. Tough to find a restaurant. By 10 PM, most streets are deserted, but daytime traffic is hectic. Phitsanulok is a sprawling city though, so maybe there are nicer areas more conducive to foreign visitors. But I'm moving on to Uttaradit...

        There is an increasing amount of crime across all foreigners picking fights with Thais, not just the Swiss. Another more recent one happened with a Russian woman kicking a Thai woman in the groin. My theory is is that Thai attitudes and scams have gotten worse this past year or two and long-stay foreigners are starting to reach a breaking point. A tourist on a two week holiday like most of the delusional idiots here ITT is whatever, but dealing with this crap day and day out for months or years on end in a place you are trying to make your home is probably starting to piss a lot of people off. People can only deal with so much snooty behavior, bad service and up-charging scams every day before they start reaching their breaking point. Not to excuse the behavior of the bad foreigners, but this surge in aggressive behavior towards Thai's does appear to coincide with an awful trip I had to Thailand a few months ago, by the time my visa was finished I was pretty much ready to go home... I noticed things have deteriorated in Thailand big time these past few years, and going by these recent stories things will continue to deteriorate even further.

            Lame bullshit excuse. Thailand has taken in trashier tourists for decades now, and it used be far WORSE. Thailand is like Bali now compared to what it was 20-30 years ago. There was still never a surge of violent crimes committed against locals or police officers in such a short amount of time back then, and never an official notice put out by police and immigration to scrutinize foreigners more closely. It's simply people who have invested a lot of money into making Thailand their home are getting sick of Thailand's bullshit since COVID- 100% "inflation" price increases, constant upcharging, shitty visas and 90 day check-ins, shitty and snooty attitudes from the locals, double taxing of foreign income, constant rule changes regarding visa requirements, and so much more. It's almost like people who contribute so much to GDP over such a long period of time don't like being treated like second class citizens every single day. Who woulda thought?

                Personally I didn't like Phitsanulok. Khon Kaen is superior.
                Sila At is a "suburban" train stop for Uttaradit. People here were very welcoming to a white foreigner who walked off the train lugging a duffel bag. Motorbikes saying "bendiha" and giving a thumbs up in passing. It seems they are trying to develop the area as a tourist rest stop. Sadly, the back street weed shop here appears to have been shut down shortly after it opened. Only one franchise is officially allowed to sell weed in Uttaradit.
                I'd like to hire a driver to take me over the Phu Phaya Pho pass. But I have such an aversion to hired transport. The subservience of the passenger to his driver. The possibility of unreasonable payments being demanded. Last time I hired a taxi I had to wait 45 minutes, even with the hotelkeeper hounding the dispatcher with multiple calls. Good thing I decided to check out 1 1/2 hours before my bus was leaving. Frick the city planners who put bus stations 8 km out of town on the bypass. You KNOW they get bribes from the taxi union.

                NTA, but actually Thailand has always been an agricultural powerhouse. Go to any Asian grocery store and you'll see most of the food comes from Thailand. They've always been huge exporter of stuff that "magically grew out of the ground."

                Myanmar has that potential and used to be a major exporter of rice, (and they even have petrol, which Thailand doens't have) but they have political problems that are insurmountable.

                And who buys that rice from overseas that allows Thailand to export it for a profit? Foreigners. Thailand has not ever fricking done a single thing on their own to get where they are today without the help of outsiders spending money on them, whether its for their rice or for their prostitutes or for their Durian fruit, all that money is coming in to the country from people outside the country.

                >but they have political problems that are insurmountable.

                Yes, exactly, Myanmar's political issues has cut off the foreign money gravy train that Thailand has taken advantage of for decades to make it so successful in comparison. If Thailand upsets foreigners somehow, or goes through a political crisis like its neighbor (which has been looking more and more likely with each past election cycle) upsetting investor confidence, and/or somehow forces foreigners to take their money elsewhere, it will end up just like its neighbor Myanmar. There is nothing otherwise anything special about Thailand or the Thai people in comparison to Myanmar. The only difference between the two is how much money one country siphoned off from foreigner spenders/investors vs the other.

              Chinese are now allowed to enter Thailand visa-free. Makes sense that they would step up their level of scrutiny at this time.

              One the Kiwi brothers can be heard on video during the incident claiming that the police officer "was trying to kill us". This could very well be a self-defense situation against a typical arrogant and corrupt Thai police officer that tried to bite off more than he could chew, as the brothers were specifically trying to remove and take away the gun from the Thai police officer. That wouldn't be too far from reality at all in a place like Thailand. The brothers have just put out a statemen still boldly denying all charges brought against them. This incident does indeed reek of all the right combination of Thai corruption, arrogance, nationalism and face-saving bullshit if you ask me. That beta b***h, mask wearing, Boomer loser of a Thai police officer tried it on with the wrong ones, and if what the Kiwi brothers are saying is true then I'm glad that POS got his ass whooped and embarrassed on camera in front everyone, probably lost major face. Hopefully the truth will come to light soon, if I'm wrong I'll retract my statement, but knowing what I know about Thailand I can definitely very much see the possibility in what the Kiwi's are saying.

              Saying shit like how Burma would have been the same with Thailand had it didn't have a civil war is like saying that Haiti would have been on the same level as Singapore if it didn't have a gang war. Because Burmaese have a different culture, world view, and attitude toward the concept of a nation since many are still at heart a tribalistic people, the thought of opening something like a troony clinic or Miss Tiffany is impossible in Burma. Burma is also a very diverse country with a shit ton of non-integrated ethnic groups, unlike Thailand.

              these incident aren't on the "increase" I would say. similiar things have happened in past years, but I would certainly say the thai media is definitely and specifically honing in on farang crime cases these past couple weeks with vengeance, trying very hard and deliberately to make it seem like more of problem than it really is. very obviously trying to push some xenophobic and anti-farang agenda, the reason why though still remains to be seen. that being said i agree that relations between thais and farangs will continue to get worse as a result of this.

              The actual problem here is that the new type of Farang, aka Russians, moved in and instead set up their own services and businesses, independent from the locals, which makes Phuket basically a turf war zone. The anti-Farang news, which is done by shitright, is meant to aim at Americans and the West, so stupid Thais would ignore the real problem like the Chinese and Russians. Thankfully, nobody gives a damn about media.

      There is an increasing amount of crime across all foreigners picking fights with Thais, not just the Swiss. Another more recent one happened with a Russian woman kicking a Thai woman in the groin. My theory is is that Thai attitudes and scams have gotten worse this past year or two and long-stay foreigners are starting to reach a breaking point. A tourist on a two week holiday like most of the delusional idiots here ITT is whatever, but dealing with this crap day and day out for months or years on end in a place you are trying to make your home is probably starting to piss a lot of people off. People can only deal with so much snooty behavior, bad service and up-charging scams every day before they start reaching their breaking point. Not to excuse the behavior of the bad foreigners, but this surge in aggressive behavior towards Thai's does appear to coincide with an awful trip I had to Thailand a few months ago, by the time my visa was finished I was pretty much ready to go home... I noticed things have deteriorated in Thailand big time these past few years, and going by these recent stories things will continue to deteriorate even further.

      One the Kiwi brothers can be heard on video during the incident claiming that the police officer "was trying to kill us". This could very well be a self-defense situation against a typical arrogant and corrupt Thai police officer that tried to bite off more than he could chew, as the brothers were specifically trying to remove and take away the gun from the Thai police officer. That wouldn't be too far from reality at all in a place like Thailand. The brothers have just put out a statemen still boldly denying all charges brought against them. This incident does indeed reek of all the right combination of Thai corruption, arrogance, nationalism and face-saving bullshit if you ask me. That beta b***h, mask wearing, Boomer loser of a Thai police officer tried it on with the wrong ones, and if what the Kiwi brothers are saying is true then I'm glad that POS got his ass whooped and embarrassed on camera in front everyone, probably lost major face. Hopefully the truth will come to light soon, if I'm wrong I'll retract my statement, but knowing what I know about Thailand I can definitely very much see the possibility in what the Kiwi's are saying.

    The problem is just that now that there are billions of rich tourists from China, Japan and Korea, obviously no one wants white "people" tourists anymore.
    Why would they? The east asians are both richer and better behaved.

      Farang tourists tend stay for weeks or even months at a time and as a result actually bring and spend more money overall per trip. East Asian tourists spend big too, but they only come down for 3 to 4 days at a time for a weekend style getaway. They both bring their own different types of contributions to Thai GDP.

        I live in the Philippines not Thailand and I think it's really important to note that SEA countries are really generous with their visa policies for us. We can't just go to any first world country and expect to stay for months or years as a "tourist". At the same time I never forget that I am a second class citizen here and will never have the same rights as a Filipino. If I get in a dispute with a Filipino it will be hard to get my side heard over theirs. So I don't get into disputes or start shit or anything no matter how bad I want to. I think it's worse in Thailand and always has been. I remember reading a news site that was all stories about shit happening to farangs in Pattaya and so many of them were ending up dead in various ways with the crimes unlikely to ever be solved. It's not that bad here but still I can never delude myself into thinking I'm somehow above the locals like some morons who post here do.

          Thai visas and Philippine visas are in no way even remotely the same. You can't even compare the two. Yes, the Philippines does have very generous visas with many paths to legitimate and legal long-term stays with minimal bureaucracy- Thailand does not, not even close. I could write a whole novel length paragraph on how different the two are, but it's not worth it, just know you are comparing apples to oranges. Many long term expats and retirees in Thailand are now considering a move to the Philippines soon for this very exact reason.

            I know the Philippines is far more generous and has been as long as I've lived here. Before you could only do one year on a tourist visa then you had to get on a plane to do a visa run. Now it's three years. I always thought the situation in Thailand was a little bit easier since you could just cross a land border instead of needing to book a flight. I've heard they seriously cracked down on it at some points though. I already met one guy at immigration who moved here from Thailand because it's a more workable situation.

              Thailand you get a 30 day visa exempt, with a possibility for extension of another 30 days pending approval if you spend 14 hours waiting in line at your local immigration office to do paperwork and an interview before your visa expires. That's all you get. Border runs have been a thing of the past for decades now. Anything more than a shaky 60 day stay requires either a mountain of paperwork or money, or both, and every 90 days in the country you must check in with your local Thai police station as well as report your whereabouts to the police within 24 hours every time you travel to a different city within the country. You can act high and mighty all you want, but if the Philippines pulled these same stunts as Thailand does, you'd probably be pretty fed up too.

                Ahem, I know a Lao prostitute that works in Bangkok who does a border run every 30 days. She has been doing this for years now. She just takes a bus to Cambodia and back. From what I've seen it's a generic bus with other poor people and they're all there for the same reason. Please explain how she gets away with this in light of your comment? They only crack down on Westerners maybe?

                Entering Thailand overland by bus as a Westerner (NOT as a Southeast Asian ASEAN national neighboring country, they have completely different rules) only gets you 15 days of visa exempt stay in Thailand, which is complete trash. If you want the 30 day visa exempt stamp, along with the possibility to renew for another 30 days, you have to enter by airport, but like another anon said, they are way stricter about doing visa runs at the airports for that exact reason, people have literally been turned away by immigration and sent back to the previous country they came from.

                Absolutely. You get the benefit of the doubt in the beginning, but once they see you come often and stay long they will start questioning you. I am now routinely asked for a "conversation with the immigration officer" when I arrive. They always let me in, because I have everything they ask for, never overstay, am kind and polite. But they do make sure I know I am on notice. It seems to be working, because I am actually considering getting some other type of visa.

              Just posted 3 hours ago. After a string of "bad behavior" of foreigners suddenly covered by the Thai media, Thai Immigration and Thai police are officially joining forces to crack down on, scrutinize and strictly vet foreigners, and not just visa over stays and the like, but potentially including foreigners partaking in the "adult entertainment" industry (fast forward to 6:04) which is still technically "illegal" in Thailand. It's fricking over. These countries are getting sick of Passport Bros and Redditors, Kyoto in Japan is even straight up banning foreigners off of entire straights, taking effect in just a few days. Good job idiots, you couldn't just keep your fricking mouth shut and had to blab to everyone all over social media. You really are the stereotypical "losers back home" for a good reason, and now you are losers overseas too.

    These questions seem to pop up regularly, so I don't know if it's a serious question or some trolling or an op to make it seem like the board is more active than it really is. However, since I have been thinking about this stuff lately, I will write a few words.

    2022 was the first time I set foot in SEA, as a European, and I fell in love with the place. It's just great here. Thailand was the first country I visited. I stayed for a few months, mostly in Phuket. Since then I spent a lot of time in Bangkok and also experienced most countries in the region. I still feel Thailand is the most friendly, trouble free, wonderful place to be. Of course it has rough edges, lots of them, but every place does. Honestly, you should go and experience every place you are considering yourself. I read a lot about Thailand, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia etc. and my subjective experience never matched what people were saying. I guess I just have different needs.

    PH is great if you are not good with women and need a confidence boost. I was getting a few hundred likes a day. Stopped checking my apps when I had a few thousand women waiting for a match, date, and you know what. But I did not like the average Filipino person I would meet at the store, restaurant, or basically anywhere. I did not really like the food. The place was generally not safe. Not very well developed. Then I look at Bangkok. Maybe the streets are not as clean and neat as best areas south of Manila (Makati, BGC), but it's pretty much always safe. I do like the average Thai person. I do like the food. I do like the weather. And I do find Thai women much more attractive in general.

    Now I was comparing Thailand and the Philippines because both places are roughly in the same price range. For me, Thailand is just better. People talk a lot about touristic places. Well, just don't go there. It's a country of 60 million people, there are nontouristic spots there.

    >a good place to move to with 15k in savings

    I will say this, however - 15k (assuming USD) is not a alot of money. You can live very comfortably in Bangkok for 2k a month, but that only buys you 7 months. You could halve that cost if you were willing to compromise on living standards and food. I am certain you go go really spartan on this, but the question is - how are you going to make money going forward? "Move" implies long term.

    I'm at a clinic in Vietnam right now where the bathroom smells of shit and has neither toilet paper nor soap, and the doctor offered me a cigarette.

    And the news for foreigners just continues to get worse. It's fricking over for Thailand, unironically this time...

    Just posted 3 hours ago. After a string of "bad behavior" of foreigners suddenly covered by the Thai media, Thai Immigration and Thai police are officially joining forces to crack down on, scrutinize and strictly vet foreigners, and not just visa over stays and the like, but potentially including foreigners partaking in the "adult entertainment" industry (fast forward to 6:04) which is still technically "illegal" in Thailand. It's fricking over. These countries are getting sick of Passport Bros and Redditors, Kyoto in Japan is even straight up banning foreigners off of entire straights, taking effect in just a few days. Good job idiots, you couldn't just keep your fricking mouth shut and had to blab to everyone all over social media. You really are the stereotypical "losers back home" for a good reason, and now you are losers overseas too.

      SRT staff inspected my passport when I was buying a train ticket. Just a couple weeks ago they would hand a ticket over immediately upon request.
      Again, I'm convinced this has to do with the influx of Chinese visitors. Chinese feel safer under government scrutiny.

      No, it's becoming more and more like South Florida with each passing day. A destination for con artists, wannabes, narcissists and desperate losers looking to restart their life while running away from something back home. Attitudes and genuine relationships with other people is starting to go to shit as a result.

      These must be the rapidly gentrifying areas. Here in Lampang, there is no sign of any change.

          It was fairly crowded when I was there but it's big enough that you can get away. Mix of families and douchebro trash. Weed is more expensive than most places so bring it from somewhere else if you care.

              I liked Phangan better than Samui and you might too. Less crowded, seemed like more of my kind of people but I don't know if that applies to you or not. There's definitely a party to be had but also peace and quiet.

                I think it's a good call. The only thing I'll add is that Samui is definitely more built up with modern shit so if you want that then maybe do Samui but it's another of the reasons I liked it less.

      The international license will specify car or bike (or both) and if you're not licensed to drive a motorbike in your home country then you won't be here either. On the other hand, it's SO fricking cheap and easy to get that you might as well.
