We just moved here...Across from the Ambassador. Far enough from Pattaya but close enough for shopping and outings.

Been looking for land to go farming/gardening and it will be a choice between Chaing mai/Chaing rai and Chanthaburi and i think Chanthaburi will win out. Just hope i can afford something towards the mountians there.

we'll be there . . . soon.

Leaving Phuket behind - have been alternating between here and the farm near 'sub soom bun' (excuse sp?) 30min south of Kaew Chakan. Takes 22hrs each way by bus/bus/bus/tuk-tuk from Phuket, have decided to move closer . . .

Anyway, we'll be there (farm) for April while we sort out accomm in Chanthaburi/Trat area. .....

ha ha is this sad or what, quoting my own post from 13 months ago.

"These things take time" and after an enjoyable 11 mths on the farm in Sa Kaeo, and numerous trips abroad and exploring this part of the country we finally made the move to Chanthaburi province 3 weeks ago.

Still an easy enough trip back to the farm 180km if required.

I just noticed this thread again.

I live in Ta Phraya, 50km north of Aranya Phratet, 3km from the Cambodia border. I've been here 2 years - is it that long already - time flies! (though had a few months back in the UK last year). Since being here I've met at least 25 farang who live within a 15km radius and know of at least a dozen or so more who I haven't met. Mixture of mainly English, Swedish, Australian, German, Kiwi, Italian - mainly retired and a couple with their own business. It just shows that 9 votes on this Thai Visa poll for the whole of Sa Kaew province does not necessarily represent reality - saying that there's only really 4 'towns' in the whole of the province, but the numbers would suggest there's at least a couple of hundred in total.

Songkran tomorrow, was looking forward to the parade but I've come down with an ear infection - so not sure if I'll be joining in the water fights. Have fun!

or down by the beach area Phayun ?

I would like to see this topic continued. My wife and I are talking about returning to Thailand after living in Bangkok 2008/2009 and then returning to Australia. Mrs. Checker is keen to look around the eastern seaboard so I am during the research. She insists however that it must be as far away from Pattaya as possible. Have also been looking at Krabi down south however the lack of golf courses causes some concern. Ban Chang seems to be popular with many people although I am sure that everyone has their reasons for living where they do.

Hi,

Living in Ban Chang now,

Moved the family here from Maprachan Lake area, after one year of settling in,

as the kids went to school here and still love it, we decided to move closer to their school.

We have been living in Thailand now for 18 months and looks like it is going to be a lasting thing ;)

CU around !
