I don't understand all these conflicting marketing reports...some say BKK is most expensive just under Singapore (which I seriously doubt) and others like this say it's the cheapest top 5 blah blah.

 

Then you have all these jaded long-term stayers (farangs) threatening to leave BKK for greener pasture in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, etc.

It helps a lot if you don't smoke drink wine fall foul of the daily crackdown and the ensuing ridiculous fines.  but the first class healthcare must be a typo being gassed in the PM 2.5 smog haze should be the correction otherwise welcome if you can afford it 🤔 

This is cheep wine at the moment.

I love it. But sad to see a few pals forced to leave with the new Immi rules. Compulsory health insurance will be another nail in the coffin for many. Enjoy . There’s no tomorrow.

Compulsory health insurance will be the death nail for many retirees, myself included. Millions of baht worth of assets will be on fire sale. Anyone interested? Lol

No doubt this report was completed before the Immigration Burea decided to introduce financial penalties in order to obtain the retirement visa .

I looked up the link and the article containing the report was dated 1st January, so you're right.

 

It's as though someone, somewhere has dug up this article as a counter to the cost of living in SEA report published yesterday. A bit like the kindly taxi driver stories appearing shortly after the accident and scam articles!
