I LOVE where I live, as it's very close to my 'dream' - so no, I don't regret moving to Thailand.

I'm thinking a place with at least 3 cats for some reason.

I really couldn't be bothered going on any other country's expat forum, other than the one I live in, and would never come back and start preaching on Thai Visa, like a maddened evangelical who has "seen the light" and wants to save us Thailand living sinners, should I decide to move from here.

I agree with you and am in constant wonder at the volume of posts from the UK, USA and Australia here on Thai Visa.

The Vietnamese government quickly shuts down anything that's in the least way critical of themselves.

Where some Thailand forums are so scared of someone speaking out-of-turn they lock their own news posts to comments.

You're very wrong.

 

But to be fair, if you replace "cats" with dogs, and so living in a relatively remote area next to the beach - perfect for myself and my dogs - you'd be right.....

Yes, you can gain citizenship, but if you ar not capable to even get a proper visa, you will never ever see a citienship. For most people it is har to get. I would never bother, since I do not need it.

The royal family is off topic, but you are free to criticise the immigration policy, poke fun of Prayuth, point out corruption and generalise about the Thai people.  Try doing the equivalent in Vietnam. (Or Malaysia or Singapore too, for that matter).

For most men it is hard to get, if you're female all you need to do is marry a Thai guy with a job.

Everything is easy for women, as long they are willing to open their legs. Huh, and we have to struggle and struggle and struggle, unfair

Yeah, but who wants to live in a shiithole like Phnom Penh? Disgusting place.

They have one decent shopping mall and a few decent restaurants and cafes ... but you’ll soon tire of that and people pissing in the street. Cebu City might be a decent option for those that want to escape Thailand.

Are you talking about permanent residency or citizenship? I know how to qualify for permanent residency but you talked about getting citizenship which, if you are male, is nearly impossible to achieve. So explain again and with more info otherwise I assume that your post was only hot air.

20 years lived here continuously.  Worked here 8 years.  Other stuff personal. How about you?  If you expect me to answer you should do the same. 

Fair enough. I don't see why it is personal, anyway this is an anonymous forum.

One lived and worked here for 25 years. Came on extended holiday before that.

Regarding they other question I've applied and in the process of naturalization.

A common myth. Citizenship is just the next step after getting PR. If married to a Thai, like me, it's easy, and only 5,000 baht. No need to get PR first, just work permit for 3 years, and a few other things. Don't even need to speak Thai, if you get points in other areas like qualifications, salary, age etc.
