My friend from Canada, used to go to Thailand for the Winter months, now he goes to Thailand, for a short break, then to Vietnam for most of his Winter break, back to Thailand

to say hi to friends and back to Canada. He says  that his holiday is much more interesting

and he enjoys Vietnam for a cheaper amount. For my own enjoyment, I bus to South Pattaya, and enjoy some of my Thailand stay, visiting a relative who lives at Jomtien Beach  Pattaya, a more family friendly part of

Pattaya.

Geezer

vietnam sounds nice, but the people are extremely annoying.. a nation of spitters, esp while eating.

They walk up and down...usually following someone with toy on the end of a stick...they do not spend anything in the bars/entertainment venues..then back to their chinese owned hotels 

Russian wives looking for their husbands? 

Seeing the sights that walking street offers but will not be participating that's for sure. Just passing through. It's all about the money and Thailand is not a value for money destination anymor

I think most people would prefer spitters to scammers.  🙂

I am sure this is something many snowbirds are considering, now the visa laws have changed here.  It's created some difficulty getting that fourth month in Thailand.

 

Many will get a 2 month tourist visa for Thailand, and pay 1900 baht to extend, giving them 3 months in Thailand, and go to Vietnam for the fourth month, or, get a 3 month tourist visa for Vietnam, and come to Thailand on a 1 month visa exempt, or, simply extend their Vietnam visa and not come to Thailand at all. 

 

They could try a visa run, and take the risk, but many may think if they have to leave anyway, why not just stay elsewhere.
