Moving to Tha Mai (Chanthaburi)

Recommended Posts

Good morning. After living in Nan province for the past 11 years (and in Thailand for 20 years), next month we will move to Tha Mai. 

We are looking for a place to rent for about 4-5 months, and in the meantime we are looking for land to buy.

Since we have two children who will go to the local school, we would like to stay in the center or near the center of Tha Mai town (maximum 4-5 kilometers away).

Thank you in advance if anyone had advice and suggestions

We live in Soi Dao. Should you be looking for land in this area, may be able to assist. Nice 2 bed moo baan house is ~3500 per month.

Hi, just to say welcome to Chanthaburi.

Can't help re rental or land queries as I'm working out of the country and can't return till travel opens up again.

Curious why you've chosen Tha Mai area?

Thanks. Soi Dao is a nice area, but after ten years of mountains in Nan we now prefer to be closer to the sea and the city 🙂

St Josephs is the best school in that area, one of the best in the province. 

Yes, St Josephs is a good school. Unfortunately given the difficult times, we were unable to move to Tha Mai in March and April, so no time for admission tests. For this year, we enrolled our children in Wat Bunyawas Wihan School

Thank you 🙂 First of all I apologize for my English... 

I have liked the Chanthaburi area since I first went there about twenty years ago. Over the years I have gone back several times, but then we have chosen Nan (the other province we've always liked), also a beautiful province, and a good place to raise children in the middle of nature. When we decided it was time to move to a less remote place, as the kids start growing up, Chanthaburi was obviously the first choice, also because we kept going back whenever possible. Last year we spent a couple of months in Hat Chao Lao, and after exploring the area again, we liked Tha Mai. For its atmosphere of a quiet yet convenient town, and for the location, close to the city and the sea. Both are life choices. My wife is Thai, but she is not from Nan or Chanthaburi. I hope we can meet when you are back in the area 🙂

Welcome to Chan. Tha Mai is a nice town, cycle there from the city often.

After over four years of looking, i finally found the land that worked for me, in the city limits but really on the edge so very rural feel to it. There are very many great properties to chooae from here, enjoy the search

Yes, we arrived in Tha Mai about three weeks ago. A big change for us after so many years in the north, but we are happy. Chanthaburi is an area that we have always liked.

Thank you Kuma. it was impossible to find a house for rent in the area, so for the moment we rented two row rooms near the post office. Let me know if you fancy a coffee and a chat, in Tha Mai or in Chanthaburi. This is my facebook contact https://web.facebook.com/pagani.thailand
