Why Thailand if Malaysia is so much easier and nicer

Recommended Posts

I find all day drinking easier in KL than in Thailand, with its recently-introduced quaint and archaic restrictions on afternoon drinking.

 

Thailand has some cooler weather and some hotter weather and some drier weather.

I worked a couple of year in different parts of Malaysia and never felt truly welcome. There is this underlying segregation between the Malay, Chinese-Malay and Indian-Malay everywhere you go.

 

Thailand feel more like home to me. 

That's interesting. My impression is that Malaysia is more orderly in a way westerners might feel is like home as it was a British colony before. Yes there is segregation in Malaysia and western countries as well. On the cultural thing a lot of expats choose Penang which is of course much more Chinese Buddhist than other parts of the country.

if there are BiG C comparable to thailand,
then the only remaining question beside the ever present visa hassle is:
do they have go-go i can sit and get drunk in every day ?

I doubt you can live on 90 day extensions forever, but correct me if I'm wrong.

Rumor has it a POTY was trying to move there but were surprised when told they didn't have enough money. KUL are generous on the entry VISA of 90 days (I get that when I'm waiting 6 hrs for a through flight), but staying there LT is probably much harder.

Philippines you can arrive and stay 3 years without leaving, no finance checks at all.

To the best of my knowledge, no go-go bars, but others may know better.
