The day it costs the same to live here as it does to live in Australia, (for the equivalent lifestyle) is the day I will move back.

 

The whole idea of Thailand is an equivalent or better lifestyle for less money.

If the cost rises higher than south Europe, It could make me leave, and if the safety situation changes.

1)  Visa rules get to be too difficult.

 

2)  Unable to secure affordable health care insurance especially if over 75

 

3)  Bank deposit requirements for visa

 

4)  Unhealthy air pollution

From the above list it would be 2) for me.

At present it looks like I will be required to pay 90% premium (increasing as I get older) for the mandatory cover every year. If I can afford that I don't need the cover and I don't need to be robbed.

 I'm weary of all the never-ending immigration hoops to jump through and will visit less as a result.

The tougher immigration gets, the less I step foot in the country. 

 

 

 

 

This.....and Thai's are making too many changes and I don't think they really understand the consequences.

If I started to stagnate as a person, or if the current state of the 'government' deteriorates to the point where I see no point of return.

Mandatory medical insurance that is impossible for me to get even though I have been trying to get for the past twenty years.  I would gladly pay if the Thai government would offer some for even between 50,000 to 100,000 per year.

List the top reasons why you are in thailand and if they are removed from the equation, u would leave.

 

For me its:

 

Cheap massages

 

If that was removed, I would get out.  I can do without beer but not massages

 

I've lived in Bangkok more than 10 years and had one foot massage.   Have had massages in top notch spas in other parts of the world and really don't see the point.  


If I need to relax I can do it without paying someone to massage me.

Why can't you live without massages?

The only reason I would leave is if the visa rules forced me out.   But they'd have to become really difficult as there is usually a way around depending what visa you are on already.

did not come here for the girls, plenty that can speak English and who are  educated back home and who also have opinion and are more sexually liberated than the Thai's.  do not drink anymore.  love the country, nature, food and cats. 

the Doors are not something you walk through
