What is the VERY BEST thing about living in Thailand??

Recommended Posts

Grocery store shopping.  Every city where I have lived in Thailand either inside the grocery store or a short walk away were a plethora of amusements for those of us who are still sexually active.  Not to say other countries don't cater to this market but not in such a lively and varied way as Thailand does.  Lotus, Tops and Friendship to me all have alternative more accurate meanings than the companies intended.

The fact that I can go to the bank at 8 PM on Sunday night (Mall branch) or that I can get a haircut almost anytime of day (exception Wednesdays). And of course, 24 hour 7-11 and family Mart on every corner, and food vendors right off the train on the way home. The ultimate convenience society...there are a few costs to that convenience but well worth it.

 

I recall many times in the US, did not go shopping and the nearest convenience store either too far away or closed after 8 PM...so had to make due with whatever is in the pantry...and needing a haircut to boot because I could not get to the barber before 5 PM !

Still a relatively low cost of living compared to the west and the weather!

Housing is the big one....most other things are similar cost if one wants similar quality. But having said that....I pay only 1/5th of what I would pay on the east coast of the US for similar accommodation so it is huge.

But downtown BKK does not represent all of Thailand.

 

I live in rural Khampaeng Phet and I haven't shut the front gate in years, in fact when we resurfaced the drive a few years ago we buried the gate runner.

yes true so why not  state the area  from which your experience is relevant too

I sold my house in the US, bought a new 3-story townhouse here (in wife's name of course), and still had 75% of the money leftover to live on. It would have been 90% if it wasn't for the capital gains taxes.

not changing summer tyres to winter tyres and vice versa :wink:

Never changed tyres  it takes all the fun out of it in the snow .

Mind you I don't think most people here worry about changing tyres unless they have to.
