  1. Unless the piano has been tropicalised it's not going to be happy in Thailand with the heat and humidity. For the cost of importing a piano you could buy a quality electronic piano here. To be honest, I'd been skeptical about electronic pianos until I tried one 18 months ago. With good quality ones the key action is indistinguishable from mechanical pianos, and the sound is actually much better. (An upright can sound like a concert grand.)

(See https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-04-25/vaccine-travel-rules-widen-the-rift-between-china-and-the-west .)
