  1. I always found the low season the best time to visit .peak season holidays are terrible and best avoided if you can .
  2. An apartment is part of a rental complex . A condo is privately owned . Apartments are seen as the same as council gaffs in America .
  3. Never lend money to anyone . Be it farang in your home country or here . My sister in law has done quite well for herself (should be loaded) but the hangeroners have continuously pecked away to borrow money off her without even the slightest hint of paying back ! If Thais really worried about saving face why is it they turn up like it's nothing to every family function even though they owe hundreds of thousands of baht ? Thais will ask for money off anyone we are not the only victims .
  4. No living costs and 100k a month ... that's a decent living in any country . I make way more then that where I live but my outgoings are way higher . I had cash from selling land and a house there I just bought it back over and lost close to 10% ... currency can be a batch but I needed the money and couldn't wait any longer for the $ to weaken . That money I couldn't buy a rai in Thailand, I could buy 5 acres of beautiful treed land here .
  5. I think his ego may of taken over . There are many expats in Thailand that live on a lot less then a million a year .
  6. I think the nightlife for everywhere is changing . Pubs and dive bars are closing all the time in the west . Are nightclubs doing better ? Also apps like tinder are cutting out the middle man . I'm in my 30s and hope and pray technology takes a bit of a dive and we start to become more social again . This world is becoming a very lonely place .
  7. πŸ˜‚ could squeeze another trip out of the sick buffalo
  8. The Jon may marry the prostitute Buys her a car a house and convinces himself she loves him ... that's at least 4 trips πŸ˜‰
  9. I think the guy that owned it previously was propping it up with his big petro bucks . That's now died a death ! He must be licking his lips getting 9 million for that place ! Good luck to the new owner though πŸ‘πŸ»
  10. The reality is many businesses would be successful if they didn't have to employ Thais . Work in recruitment and you will never be out of business hereπŸ˜‰
  11. That could be seriously scewed as Europeans have far longer holidays then anyone else . Also how the hell could they figure that out ? I'm sorry but even I will call that fake news.
  12. My comment was aimed at those who took offence to the comment someone submitted about the Thai gf conning them at the land office . The comment got removed so made me void 😝 On another note do you think the Chinese are dumb enough to buy the gf a house and land that they will never own ? That's probably why houses are not shifting ! We need more dumb westerners please .... maybe that could be the next advert from the thai tourist board ?
  13. The fear and paranoia is out πŸ™„πŸ˜³πŸ˜‚
  14. Surely the baht crashing would help him sell ? Not unless the older thai guy is planning on sending money to his farang gfs sick cow ? πŸ˜‚ Honestly though I have pulled all saleable assets out of thailand , I just bought land inn my home country . Land I can own ...
  15. For Christ sake are you still flogging this dead horse ? Are the malls that boring ?
