I must admit that I have not lived next to airport and yes, there is exaggerations in my statement to express how loud. Anyway, thank you for the comments

The worst thing you could do is to move to the country. I live on the edge of a golf course, but in a small community close to a temple and a village and it's pandemonium. Dog noise is the chief culprit, closely followed by bass-heavy music from the temple, village and shacks in a 360 degree circumferance. Even from the golf course. Then there's the traffic on the dirt track next to me which seems to have the same volume of traffic as the Bangkok expressways. It's much quieter living in town I can assure you. My Thai wife of course, doesn't hear any of it.

I am afraid the only thing that you can do is to move. There is a bar here in Pattaya in front of my condo. The condo has been here almost 30 years in an extremely quiet surrounding until... 4 years ago a bar opened in front of it and despite special expensive windows with several centimeters of glass and the best earplugs one can buy it is hard to sleep. Watching TV is a challenge. Very many people complained at the city hall and very many called their hotline at 1337. I want to post the results of years of complaints here:

 

End of the results. It just got worse and I will abandon my condo for which I paid several million Baht. There is no other option. My advice - don't buy a condo at a location that is a big red light district.

I HEAR YA! Noise drives me crazy here and is my lifes journey trying to escape it

 

last year I lived right by CNX airport--high season--planes from 6am to 1am to china DAILY

 

So moved further down the road which is a long straight open road..yep..nightly drag racing!!

 

And now my "quiet"room is being remodeled..all of it..coffee shop out in lot--painting inside and outside--repaving the lot--moved motobike awnings--cut down trees--you name it--complete revamp-so

I get the nice sound of jackhammers--metal saws grinding on rebar and metal slabs---yippee...

 

Some tricks Ive used...my fan helps--more power= more white noise--AND as I'm writing this I can hear the big airbus right on time heading back to china.....not as big a deal as Im awake..

 

WHITE NOISE app...I have a tablet I use when I sleep with a google white noise app on FULL BLAST--so much the manager knocked on my door thinking I had a water pipe burst-lol  I told him its to help me sleep from all the damn noise the thais are making so 2 can play that game!

 

Used to use reg headphones but couldnt sleep with them--hurt me ears..I do use the max rating 3M foam plugs when I sleep and if it gets super noisy I used bluetooth headphones with the white noise app and that helps and I can sleep on my side..

 

I put wallpaper tape over my bathroom screen to block that as its basically an open window and close bathroom door

 

So Maybe can use AC on FAN high setting or buy a noisy fan--add 3m earplugs and a white noise app

 

TRIFECTA!!!

Or just buy some Wax earplugs (from a Chemist shop), the're soft and you can mould them into your ear shape and they really do block all noises.

LOL! You know it is possible to live in hundreds of places to not be bothered by airplanes or road traffic etc right? 
Kind of asking for trouble if living so near big roads and airports. Move to Sansai or Doi Saket if you want a peaceful life.

I never have any noise here, sometimes 1 dog that will be sorted out quickly. They do have a lot temple things in the first months of the year but it always ends at reasonable times and would not be bothered by it if closing the doors and windows. That is in Sansai btw.

 being told if you don't like anything, just

go home is not on,

 

 You express herewith your opinion about the matter,

fair enough for me. 

 

It is also fair enough for me,

that another poster may be not agree with you, and consider he is entitled to express his opinion by telling you to go home if you not like something. 

 

I have my own opinion about the matter, however irrelevant, as an opinion has no real value. 

 

It is only what it is : an opinion.

If the noise bothers you, you haven't been here long enough. Give it another 5 to 10 years, and you'll be ok...….😎

I agree with you. We live at the end of what used to be a very quiet soi off Thong Lor. Spent several millions building a new house, but slowly many of the surrounding houses are being sold or rented out and turned into Japanese restaurants and night clubs. 
 

The restaurants have no parking spaces, so the drivers park around our house, sometimes in 3 lanes blocking the road completely. They leave their motors running for 2 hours while the bosses eat. I ask them to turn off the  motors (now most do) but when I leave they turn the motors on again.

 

When the restaurants close the nightclubs open. Again they park around our house and at 3 or 4 am the customers come back to their cars , shouting and revving up the motors.

 

We have good insulated walls and windows which keep out most of the noise, but sometimes the noise is so loud we get woken up. 

 

I guess it is the same everywhere.
