IMPOSSIBLE!  Big Joke got rid of them all a few weeks ago.

Another one who now despises Thailand, but cannot get it out of their thoughts, and keep on posting on Thai forums.

Only the bitter people do this, normal people move on, and focus their energy on their new destination.  

Correct. I Have left, my family follows once i am settled. As you rightly said put my energy into getting out, if you've any sense you will see how its sliding and do likewise, if you have stay good luck your welcome to it. there are many, many better options if you look. I don't have to "bitter" to realise the truth.

It's still paradise as before if all your paper work is in order, so I guess you spoke for yourself to pack your bags. 

Paradise, get real. can't you see that the government is just reassuring the locals that its ok to be xenophobic and hate foreigners. populist press for the foreign haters. Who wants to live somewhere where even the law abiding are tarred with same brush and not wanted?

Bye! Oh, and please don't comment anymore in this forum once you are gone. We don't need negative people like you.

Im entitled to my opinion and I'm speaking for myself, unlike you. Who are the collective "we"? If you don't like it say that. For me, AND in my opinion Thailand is getting worse and judging by the numbers of people leaving and not visiting i am not alone in my thinking am I. So rather then commenting on how negative you think I am maybe you should open your eyes and take a good look around you. Fact is there are better neighbouring countries with wide open arms, investigate for yourself. Unless of course you have been stupid enough to put all your eggs in 1 basket with no exit available to you, hence your comments.

I've been here five months.  My visa has another couple of months on it, but frankly, I can't wait to get out.  Pushing close to 110 degrees, more air pollution than anyplace on the planet, and awash in smelly, 60 year old white tricks, humping the air and bargaining for the lowest cost to lay down and convulse on top of impoverished hill tribe girls ain't my idea of 'Paradise.' 

 

It's like a Joseph Conrad novel, but the foreigners make it ridiculous.

Two guys from Cameroon were probably fluent English speakers, highly educated and teaching locals a thing or two. The rest, ASEAN folk for whom borders are non existent anyway.

How'd you get that 7 month visa? Gonna go against the grain here but maybe you should stay. It's gonna be hot for 4/5 months but the air is breathable and the rain heavy.

For now, but that will change IMO.

 

I expect even stricter visa requirements and more nationalism until this military government is deposed. I suspect that won't happen however because this merry dance is now led by a true dysfunctional despot and he's dug in like a tick on a dog's ear and I am not referring to the frog toucher.

It seems to me that being a overstayed or illegal is a dangerous thing in the LOS

It is now.

 

Used to be no problem whatsoever. 200thb a day and off you go. Can't remember what the maximum fine used to be? 5000thb maybe. 

 

Mind you, 20 years ago you could get a year visa in bar. How times have changed.

 

Lucky I was here to experience those good times, and they were really good, certainly a lot better than now. 

 

Every dog has its day I suppose.
