But just like Pattaya isn't Thailand, nether is Phuket or Krabi... or even Chiang Mai.

Who cares? The topic is about tourism and they are famous for that. Moreover, one of the guy interviewed in the OP is in Phuket.

Lucky your servicing immigration office is Hua Hin.    But if your servicing immigration office was Cheang Wattana (Bangkok) you would queue for hours on top of the several hours of transportation to/from immigration.

OK, from replies it does seem that some immigration offices are a lot worse than Hua Hin. I stand corrected.

Beat me to it. I used to go away twice a month to Rayong, Hua Hin etc. 

 

1 or 2 nights in a decent hotel, spending money in restaurants, local markets, beach bars etc.

 

Haven't been since this TM30 nonsense came up.

Tm 30, Thailand’s attempt to be like china. Except china rewards talent instead of making it hard for them 

 

There's some new china visa requirements it seems, like years of work history they want to know...

I just use non-os and never interact with Thai immigration, so don't need to do TM30s.
Trip to Vietnam every 90 days isn't that onerous a duty.
Went to DaNang in July, off to Hanoi in October.
Is that multi entry based on marriage or just over 50 based on retirement? My friend told me I can just leave before 90 days is up and start again but haven't read much about it. Do you need to pay for a new visa every time? Do you need financial proof.

Funny you mention this. I was planning to spend my break outside of Bangkok with a couple nights in Pattaya, then a week in Koh Chang, a couple more in Pattaya and then back to my place in Bangkok. Guess what I'm not doing? It's sad that literally flying out of the country is less of a hassle than staying in it. 

Why? The hotels will do a TM 30 for you.  You will most likely have to report when you are back home regardless whether the travel is domestic our international. Some posters are reporting no need for a TM30 if the travel is purely domestic but MUST be done if the travel is international. Shooting yourself in the foot going out of the country to avoid a TM 30

Seems like a nonsense post just to jump on the bandwagon.

Having moved 1 month ago from Thailand to Luang Prabang (Laos), Hanoi is just a 90 minute direct flight away, ideal for weekend trips, and no need to do a TM30 on my return 🙂

If you got a one year visa. How much did you pay for it? Can you recommend a visa agent for this? Any apartments or hotels you would recommend that give a monthly rate.

living is cheaper in cambodia, in vietnam and in the neighboring laos, let alone in the philippines

Try Yemen,  very cheap I hear. If that's what determines your holiday or residential aspirations.
