Why you want to come live in Thailand?

Thailand must have one of the best weather patterns of the planet, and the graciousness of the weather reflects on the nature and the people, which is mostly gracious, easy going and well mannered.

Yes, i know, there are negatives like everywhere, but here i am just answering the question in the OP.

Best weather patterns?

 

Sure if you love floods, monsoons and droughts!

Funny that, I have never experienced any of those things in my village.

I originally came here to work for one year in order to up my teaching resume. I was an ESL teacher back home and wanted to be able to say I had taught in another country. After my one year in Thailand was finished, I taught one year in Korea and then returned to my country, but missed the magic of Thailand and then returned and have been here many years. I have enjoyed my time here, but everything has a cost and the cost for me was not earning a solid retiremement. 

 

Unfortunately, when I am too old to work I will have to leave because I will not have enough income to qualify for a retirement visa; I will not even come close. Meantime, I will stay as healthy as I can and enjoy it while I can.

Who would want someone with that mindset teaching?

 

Seriously?

 

Missed the Magic of Thailand? What magic are you referring to? What magic did you sell your soul for that you will have no retirement?

Flood and droughts happen, not only in Thailand.

I love the monsoon weather here by the sea, it rarely happens not to see the sun for 2 days in a row.

Reallly… All the smells and deja-vou's kept keeping up with me. Nut shell Past life lived here as was my home. Too many visuals. I had to get back home was it in a full rounded shell of must, and I did.

 

The other benefits are obvious. Can get food anytime easy from your home almost street 18 hours, something always going on, Thai people a buzzing everywhere almost all the time of a 24 hour clock which makes it so much better than a US suburb or city life for the most part.

And this is a lesson for all the youngsters and people seen wandering around Asia and where ever, they should be seriously considering stable well paid employment and working for their future retirement, savings and healthcare.

I so much agree with you. Here Here! Or work legitimate here or/and get your own business and plan longer term. Meaning pay your taxes for social security in or for your country being abroad, or save like the dickens and get the useless Thai insurance young while you can. You will not get Thai SS.

The one thing is about Thailand, we each have our own life here, but when you go you miss it way too much right away. Can lead to depression or yearning when you are back home. Ring a bell for anyone reading this?

I want to live in Asia. The culture here fits me best. Among Asian countries, Thailand offers the best value in terms of high quality of life at a reasonably low cost of living.

Exactly what my father told me 50 years ago.

I am so glad I did not listen to him.
