Where do you live now?

Back home in the USA. I looked at other locations in SE Asia, Latin America, etc. But came to the conclusion they all looked as bad or worse than Thailand and why do that to myself again hoping for a different result?

I left Thailand because of the disgusting state of the place. Filthy sewage in ocean. Trucks with speakers at the beaches, cracking rotten concrete infrastructure. It's like having a holiday in some weird trashy Asian version of Mad Max world. The place is run by somebody about as personable as Immoten Joe is anyway.

 

I had gotten a 5 year Thai Elite and when I left it still had three years on it. I do not miss the place at all. These days I mostly just post in the world news section as I don't have much to add to anything Thai related.

Grand.  Keep clinging to your memories, and the forum as well. 🙄

Yes, a few expats leaving, but, no one mentions the expats that are still moving here to retire.

Thinking of retirement.

I think it is more about the strong baht that is hurting peoples' pockets than the cost of things here, except if we are talking about the cost of a good night out around Nana compared to a decade ago, of course.

Its not the Baht at fault, its western currency that's lost its value.

Maybe the ones on here who are in denial and starting to turn a little nasty are starting to feel a little vulnerable. The problem with going up one way streets is there's no turning back. Bloke on here the other day was looking for work back in Europe. Poor <deleted> is 62 years old and running out of money fast.

please post a link so i can perv on this

Do you mind starting a new thread and tell us why the other countries look as bad or worse than Thailand?

 

Starting with the other SEA countries like Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines.

Not true. Baht has gained strength over all Asian currencies like Chinese Yuan, Ringgit, Singapore dollar, Vietnamese, Philippines, Laos, Korean except for Japanese Yen

 

Compare the chart for 1 year ago and the trend.
