I see a lot of people complaining and and trying to get around the rules but none of them say where they would go or where they are going.  What about something like Fiji?

Used to be very expensive for a holiday even

I was thinking about Bali.  They have easy to get long visas but a lot of tourists there. 

I like Bali, get out of Kuta away from all the young aussies you may like it. Try it and see, not sure how difficult the visa situation is.

 

How about moving every 3 months and spend 2x 3months in thailand using tourist visas. Then maybe 3 months bali, 3 months vietnam

Kuta Beach is the big tourist beach.  Can you say some smaller beaches away from the tourist area that are good?  I looked on google but they all look like tourist places.

Lovina perhaps. My favourite place was Ubud which is in land. Maybe some expat locals can give more details

I am going to ask this question on the main forum.  i know I have to go and I will go.  I did not think about when I can come back and how many times I can come back and how long I can stay in a one year period.

 

I think I could live between two countries but not sure about three countries, but if all the visas match up, maybe the new surroundings every few months would be good.    

I’ve given some thought to this because, as much as I like Thailand, I’d rather move around and not be stuck in one place. 

 

I suspect you could spend, for example, Jan-Mar and Aug-Oct in Thailand and spend Apr-Jul in Philippines, Cambodia, or Vietnam, and then Nov-Dec back in these countries or somewhere like Bali, before returning to Thailand. So you spend 6 months in Thailand with sufficient gaps not to draw attention to immigration.

 

Another idea was to get an Ed Visa for six months and live in Thailand June to November, and spend the other six months in a neighbouring country. Advantage is that you could stay anywhere in Thailand outside of the Smokey season ... although that works for me, who has no family ties in Thailand, it may not for others. 

 

Advantage is that I would not have the hassle of retirement visa or have to buy an elite visa. 

 

Just a thought. I wonder I feel anyone else has a similar idea?

Thailand do not want me stuck here.  😐 They want me to go.  I have asked about this on the main forum.  I know they do not like the young people living here on tourists visas because they think they are working, but when so many older people leave because of the new rules, and come back every few months, and keep doing it over and over, I think maybe they will stop this visa entry also.

Bear in mind you have a military junta running the place and that might change after the elections, so these restrictions may well be changed again by the new regime. If families start to lose breadwinners that might encourage a rethink. 

I did not think about this but I read the General will win the election because he has made it that he can not lose.  I am preparing to leave. If it changes I will stay.  I have some time.

The General will be PM. He has made certain of this.  I don't think there will be change.  He will win and all will be the same.  I am ok with this now.  It is not what I wanted but I can not change it.  I am looking at other places to go to but I asked a question about when people like me can come back on a tourist visa and how many times can we do this?
