Why Thailand if Malaysia is so much easier and nicer

Complete non-sense.

Pork is readily available. Most supermarkets have a non-halal section.

The place is crawling with hookers if that is a priority in your life.

Decent imported beer (draft and bottles) can be found cheaper than in Thailand and about the same a back home. On Langkawi imported alcohol is amazingly cheap as it is a duty-free zone.

I believe religious people should have all their laws rigidly enforced upon them.

Not sure this is the right place to ask.....the majority of people on here love to put Thailand down and bash it at every given opportunity (even make giant leaps to squeeze in a "put down" if none.is obvious) but for some unknown reason choose to live here.....

   Figure that one out?

My wife and children are Thai. My home country won't let her in, so I have to live here.

I suggest you check out what has been going in Kelantan and Terengganu. 

The old assumption that converts and non practicing muslims were exempt, no longer holds. One cannot opt out of being a muslim. marry a muslim and  if it is a civil matter, Islamic laws can be applied at the behest of the implicated muslim. If you were the Hindu or  Chinese Christian  you must defer. If you are a muslim who found jesus, it won't work because you are muslim no matter what.

 

Most chaps I know that have married Muslim ladies have converted.

I'm not sure, but I believe Muslim ladies are not allowed to marry non-Muslims.

Most are failed expats who couldn't even carve a life out in 3rd world and were forced back to a council flat in blackpool or similar and still can't let go of thailand.

Yes there are some jaded people still here but in fact it's nearly always the same gang of 50 posting its just repetition. What a desperately sad club to join emoji25.png

 

Well why don’t you just delete the APP and cancel your membership. 

 

Many people have come up with some serious reasons why Malaysia is not exactly the paradise that you want everyone to buy into. - you choose not to address any of these valid concerns ( including mine ) 

 

Repetition ! A slightly hackneyed comment about council flats and Blackpool - most would not have a clue what you are talking about - it’s an international forum . 

 

As so many have said - Islamic country - absolutely not .

Not sure why you would ignore that comment.

Islam means no hookers, high alcohol prices and no pork.

Beer in KL costs more than in the UK.

 

I could live without the hookers, but I insist on bacon for breakfast and a beer with dinner.

(not that keen on lamb or goat)

....."no hookers, high alcohol prices and no pork"......:cheesy:I am sure, you never been in Malaisia more than 5 Days.

I pass through every 3 months on my holiday trips to the Philippines.

Normally I get the bus into Kuala Lumpur for the afternoon between my flights.

Not more than lunch at the airport shuttle shopping mall, and a bit of a wander round.

I always think 90 days entry seems a bit excessive when I'm just waiting for my connecting flight.

 

Never had the urge to stay any longer.

As I said in a previous post, I believe countries should rigorously enforce their religious laws, I ain't looking to break them, I am a righteous person and believe in the rule of law (no matter what that rule is). If a country has a law I can't live with, it's easy to move somewhere else.

Can buy pork,  alcohol in all supermarkets under the sign that says 'Muslim's cannot buy these.'

 

Can also go to the casino at Getting and eat and drink yourself stupid.

Please can someone explain to me why anyone would chose to live or spend their holiday in Thailand compared to Malaysia?

Bacon among other things – found the delicious scrambled eggs, walked up and down the breakfast buffet three time to find the bacon, when I suddenly remembered I stayed in a hotel in Johor Sultanate in Malaysia – but in general the difference between Muslim life-style and Buddhist Thai-way life-style, and crispy pork...:wink:

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

I've a friend in Langkawi who's been there for 14 years.  He gets a ferry to the Thai border every 3 months to do some shopping for a couple of days.  Has never had a visa.  Never had a problem.
