  1. Hi Matty64. I can understand why you might want to live in Thailand. Particularly if you had visited here with the Royal Navy. I first came here in 1964 on HMS Falmouth, we steamed up the Chao Praya river overnight and spent 10 days in Bangkok, anchored at great wooden stansions, (huge tree trunks located in the river, lashed together), oppsite the Royal Palace.
