On nut = farang ghetto.    I can't think of worse area to live in.     

I saw the beginning of that video. The guy makes a lot of assumptions with limited knowledge. 

I enjoy living in On Nut, it has everything you need locally + is only 5 stops away from Asoke on the BTS if you wanted to go into "Town"   I live very close to On Nut BTS station & pay

You got to be NUTS to live in the pollution of Bangkok. Cancer, stroke, heart attack etc. are really consequences.

BKK is 10% of the population and half the GDP.  I find the river areas to be a little better for air.  There are some great routes to walk if you search a little, that are as good as any I found in five years in CM.  Nimmanhaemin is as bad as it gets for walking in CM, and that is a very popular area.

On Nut=Oh Nuts.

 

Because, that is what you will say to yourself when you wake up in the morning and realize what a mistake it was to live there.  

Not good at all.

The NGO network with its infinite supply of cash is busy buying condos in On Nut, which they fill with street people from the west.

That is what gives foreigners a bad name quote.

I've been living there for six years. I rent a house and hardly see another foreigner. Have no problems with the neighbours. My area seems pretty safe. Never had any security problems. 3BB fibre is fast enough. Close enough top everything.

Sathorn congestion is just as bad as Sukhumvit, it tends to be very upmarket, and it can be unusually quiet on the weekends.  There is a cheap hotel called Sathorn Saint way back behind St. Louis..great rooftop pool.  It has monthly rentals, too.  For the money, I would take it over On Nut, but look in other river areas like Dusit, Thewes, Bang Pho...

The name of that serviced apartment/hotel is Sathorn Saint View.

There has been a community of expats from california using an attorney and getting disability payments for anxiety, etc., also a few from Oregon, but it is much more difficult to do it in other states..there are more regular appointments..but California might have figured out it is cheaper to give them 650 a month to stay the heck away.  Most don't have any other money..some go to Cambo for the usual reasons.  Never heard of us got agencies buying condos, here, but the Germans might do it.

Correct...7000 per month and 7 per elect unit, which bites..but the sky is the limit on some of the rents around there..English teachers there, too.

And some snowbirds, and young retirees.  Seemed friendly and genuine for an expat community.

B6,000 for 12 month contract.  I agree, the illegal electricity charge is not nice.

I lived there in '95/96 and, unfortunately, the pool is little more than the size of a large jacuzzi!

Yes, small pool, but you could probably have it mostly to yourself on weekdays.  Good place to do beers up there, as well as the tables out front.  I recall a lower level that is half subterranean....would save a lot on elect.  Nice hotel for around 400, it was a welcome relief after a few days in a dodgy soi Nana dump for about the same price.
