  1. Good afternoon. Can you please help me. My son is living in the uk with me, his dad and is in the process of being tested for Autism and I am trying to explain this to my ex wife, my sons mother but having great difficulty. Can you please help me how to write Autism/Autistic in Thai as I dont always trust google translate. Many thanks
  2. Good morning. Can anyone please offer some advice please? I would like to start a junior sipp for my children and top my existing private pension currently has 93k. We are presently living in the Uk but intend to move to Thailand in the next 10 years and I was wondering if I pay into these pensions whilst in the UK when it comes to drawing on them living overseas as an Expat would they be subject to tax or are there any other issues I should be aware of please? Thank you so much
  3. Thank you for all your replies. Definitely food for thought. Just to add a little information on my thinking. My son struggles with learning as he has ADHD but he wishes to live in Thailand when he finishes his secondary education in the UK. I have been told (maybe incorrectly) that in order to have a decent job in Thailand a degree is required hence my thinking regarding a degree in Thailand as I know that he would not be able to pass the entrance exam or get the required exam results for a degree in the west. I was wondering is there an alternative path he should consider in order to reach his goal of living in Thailand, getting a decent job by Thai standards and being able to speak, read/write Thai? Many thanks
  4. I was wondering if it is at all possible to do a degree in Thailand in Thai Language. My son who is half Thai but doesn't speak Thai at all wishes to live in Thailand in the future and would like to do a degree in Thai when he's older as Ive heard that non Thai speakers can do this as they start at the very beginning; basic language and build up. Can anyone please tell me if this is so and what would be the approximate cost? Many thanks
  5. Good morning . Can anyone please tell me if it is possible to live a comfortable life in Chaing may or similar for 1 adult and 2 children (not including school costs) on £1500 a month? Thank you

    Thank you very much for all your replies. I thought that it might be tight and you have all confirmed this. Thank you for your informative replies. Can you please be so kind as to advise on roughly how many thai baht per month would be an Ideal figure to live comfortably in a 3 bed house in a nice part of the city and live comfortably, not extravagantly but not on the breadline either as this will be something to save towards. Many thanks
