I just moved to Rayong a couple of months ago. It is an OK place I really enjoy motorbiking bown the coast. The locals are kind of stand offish not like living in Bkk for sure. It is nice not being surrounded by 14 million people the beaches are nice. It is amazing how you can get such decent housing down here too,

Just as I suspected no-one lives here except me! - or have I jumped the gun???

There are several around Chanthaburi area but they tend to keep a low profile. Most have moved from other area's and are here to enjoy the beach's, air, and just general great living standards.

Many farangs in Chanthaburi are there to buy gemstones.

Just found this post, I live just outside Aranyaprathet. The name of the villiage is Muang Phai. Two years ago there were five expats as well as me, Canadian, American, Belguim, Welsh and British. Now there are three of us, death and bad health have struck. Anybody out there near Aran?

Cant help sorry, I've been through it and apart from blinking and missing it its Thai countryside around it, pretty much standard Amphur town I think.

Yep, it's a big Gem trading city. I am just getting used to Chantaburi,,as I spend a few days every week or so over there for work, makes a change from being on Koh Chang though.

Understand there was a big fire that took a few restaurants out in Laem Mae Phim over the last Loy Krathong celebration. Have not been able to get down that way since Loy Krathong. Any knowledge what the area is like now? Rebuilding?

one for people in Chanthaburi

I've met a few people here who didn't know of the Immigration Service Centre that opened in Chan city in October 2012. I only found it by accident when out cycling one day.

Previously I had to do a 110km return trip to Pong Nam Ron. Now just 25km. Last time was there 8.30am and away 8.40am. Small office just three staff.

It is located across the bridge from Robinsons heading towards the lake. I'll find the road name and post it here.

I prefer to go the other way as I dislike the traffic around Robinsons, however......

If you drive past Robinsons with it on your right, then continue up over the bridge then turn right at the T junction. INDEX shop will be on your left and some nurseries. Turn left before the road narrows and it is about 100m on the left side.

Tha Mai, Chanthaburi since 2006. Married. Do any members ever have a "Get Together" to meet? I know that times have changed since the budget cuts in the US,and other countries, and people losing their jobs. I think it's time for us to start networking. I really don't know how many expats are here in the East where I'm at, but I sure would like to meet just to get out of the house, and having an excuse that I don't know anyone out here, or the famous "No one speaks English for me to be out there." That drives me nuts. blink.png
