The problem is that the wake up call is not in Thai, so nobody in government can understand it.

Vietnam has the right combination at the moment, to entice tourists & workers alike.

Thailand is just making it harder with every new step they make in the immigration or work permit process!

Thailand is getting a wake up call from many sources but no-ones listening !

Thailand wants it's version of brexit,out means out,"now mister you go home your country" Thailand will be fine

"as was its lack of fulfillment (33rd) for expats - lower than any other country surveyed."

 

what is fulfillment ? honest question

 

 

Surely,its a combination of all the Factors that Thailand ranked well in.

So why the bad " fulfillment " Ranking ?

Another load Of TOSH

And foreigners have no Labour Court to go to when they get shafted & suckered.

That is not true, a foreigner can go to the Department of Labor.

Fully agreed and a major contributing factor I am not there permanently. A person can only see so many ladies, or temples. As an expat here in NL, there is so much I can choose to do - museum's, festivals, riding a bicycle and general travel in safety, ease of travel, events throughout different cities, like yoga, or neighbors playing music, or traveling along the canals, and much more. No matter where I go and a lot for cheap or free. There is just not much done to attract tourism outside of the already heavy tourist areas. Things need to be done to entice people to travel and do things throughout the country, not just build another temple or mall. If I'm in Bangkok, 4 things stick out to do: 1) Go to a temple (2) Go to the mall (3) Eat - a large contributing factor as to why Thai's are getting so big, or (4) Find a lady and I have a gf now so that is out of the question.

 

 Agreed!! I also think it's about a lack of career progression unless you are willing to pay someone the right amount of money to move up in the company.

 

I still love the language, the food, the landscapes outside of Bangkok, Thai culture and history (Which I think should be promoted more), and the women, but I 100% understand why Vietnam is the choice for more expats. Even for people traveling, when they ask me between the 2, I'm more apt to say Vietnam. Thailand is and has been becoming more expensive and standards, such as road fatalities per capita and political stability do not seem to be improving much.

The junta are doing a fine job,Thais have never had it so good,look at those poor Brits

Numbeo has just published Cost of Living index's for most countries.

The South East Asian countries in the attached list may give some insight into why some countries are considered more attractive than others for expats:
