We have. I work around the region so have a good knowledge of it. However my wife is thai and we have kids. For us there are really only two alternatives. North Australia or an Island in Thailand. We are still looking at options but not very impressed with the way things are going. To anyone who doesnt have our restrictions I would recommend Cambodia or Philippines as possibilities. Not crazy about Malaysia, Myanmar too undeveloped and not suitable - also expensive for expats. Laos landlocked and suffering pollution these days. Vietnam just difficult and getting expensive although South is ok. Thoughts?
