Opinion on currency price and live here in thailand

Recommended Posts

Hi legends 

sorry for not perfect English 

so I stayed here in thailand about 17 years already with a marriage visa with my thai wife 

I came here in 2002 with 43 baht = 1 US dollar and these years thai baht increased slowly and i and many foreigner have income from abroad while our income is fixed in our country but change to thai baht for making life here is necessary!!!

So ,,, Now and today 1 US dollar = 30 baht !! And we have here in thailand some inflation in some important price and making life is difficult more and more !!!

what is your opinion and what about you ??

actually i finding some serious problem for crazy increase thai baht against US dollar 

what we can doing ?? Is any hope for better conditions or ???

My opinion is the same in all the many threads on this subject, if you come to live here plan it after analyzing exchange rates history in the past for Thailand.

The current rate of exchange actually helped me in sending money back to the US...👍

You should budget for a potential doubling (=halving) of currency every decade. 

 

That was my worst case expectations when I retired here at 28.. Was looking at 6 or so decades potentially.

Thai baht has been around 30-33 US dollars for ages.

 

How does this affect you at all?
