What would make you leave thailand? If drinks became illegal? or girls?

With the temperature constantly hovering around the 40 degree mark I have been spending too much time in our air con bedroom because even the living room is about 32.

You need to acclimatise.

Get up at dawn, go for a walk, do some gardening, at 12:30pm I'm still fine with just a fan blowing on me.

Set your air-con on 30c, plenty cool enough for the afternoon and night.

Unlike many of the posters on this thread, I am not here for either sex or booze.  I support my Thai family and simply want to be able to continue to do so.

You don't have sex with your Thai wife?

Takes all sorts I suppose.

If there is one thing that might eventually lead to my leaving it is the rising temperatures.

 

I realized yesterday that over the last couple of months I have been living like a troglodyte. 

 

With the temperature constantly hovering around the 40 degree mark I have been spending too much time in our air con bedroom because even the living room is about 32.

 

Many plants in the garden are either dead or have badly scorched leaves.

The front lawn is looking very sad.

Even the soi dogs are nowhere to be seen having all found some dark corner to hide in.

 

Don't even get a decent cool season any more. 

 

By contrast we recently spent 3 weeks on the Isle of Wight. The weather was glorious throughout, around 25 every day. We walked miles on woodland footpaths and along Sandy beaches. Lost weight and blood pressure went down. Wine and good food every day.

 

Only drawback is the cost of housing and utilities. Dirt cheap here, cost a murder there.

i was there for the Festival in 70, great place

list as many as u want

 

girls booze "cheap" family

1) if the girls quit smiling; 2) if massages increased 10 fold in price; 3) if they declared what you do behind closed doors IS their business. In short, if it became just like home.

Prostitution is illegal...

If you insist on staying legal in this country, you may as well not bother getting up in the morning.

I can't imagine Thais accepting no booze and no karaoke girls...:whistling:

–so I don't think its a viable option...🤔

However, I can easily survive without booze, and a mia noi, or a couple of gigs, might still be a valid option...😍
PS: I also enjoy a relaxing two-hour massage...🙂

Well, I've been acclimatizing for 40 years but this years hot season has upped the anti. We only have the one air con because we are generally ok . But this year has been a scorcher.

The news reports several types of crops in various provinces have failed this year because of the heat.

 

I am a keen gardener but now can only do an hour and a half from 5.00 pm onwards. Despite generous watering one tree has died and several have burnt leaves from the hot air.

 

I used to get up early and go out on the bike at 7.00 but recently been doing DIY during these hours and by the time I'm done its too hot.

 

The pictures are from our garden. Never had trees over powered by the heat until this year. But it may be that next year is back to normal. Time will tell.

If my wife left me I'd leave tomorrow. Although I enjoy living here very much it is getting a lot more expensive compared to neighbouring countries. I really am thinking of trying China instead. I'm becoming more and more fascinated in China and it's people.

I'm glad I don't think this way. I couldn't care less 10 mins one way or the other. I care about the quality of the massage.

 

Think about it: you are letting 10 minutes ruin your experience, of a 200/300 baht massage? 

Let that soak in:

A whole 35/50 baht!

 

Not a fight I've any interest in joining.

 

I go get a massage, leave feeling great, never bother to even glance at the time.

Well worth the money without all the negative thinking...

 

Why don't you just modify the tip if you feel shorted?

That way you can actually enjoy the massage process.

 

I agree with him, its about being cheated.  Or the mentality of getting over the stupid falang.   They are just lazy when they do that since it hurts their tips.  The massage money goes to the spa.  

 

If I pay for an hour, I expect an hour, not 45 mins.  You guys need to stop enabling it.  

 

Use the timer on your phone and show them.  Even if you look at the time, sometimes they try to cheat it by remembering wrong.

Street crime, bulgaleries, pollution, uniformed authorities becoming more thuggish,  or increasingly redder immigration tape would make me leave.

Just read this.

 

In Indonesia drinks are not super easy. Girls are...

 

But many people are happy there.
