I've said before, it's probably no less inconvenient and time consuming, or more expensive for that matter, to fly to Bangkok for a couple days than it is to drive to Chiang Mai.

Rumpole first screened in 1978, whilst I may be wrong can swear I hear the term prior to that.

News flash, old term from she novel published in 1886.??? So there may have been many cases of plagiarism over the century. But I guess VF, you knew that.

I'd like reading this thread too, if it stayed on topic (Location). I personally am not interested in reading poster's chatting that is more appropriate as a pm? Perhaps I am in the minority. wai.gif Edited by OneZero

I figure Monty9, the OP, can take this thread anywhere he wants to without asking our permission. I'm not sure who you thought was going off topic.tongue.pngbiggrin.png

So where is your contribution?wink.png

I am trying to help out here Monty9, but as you can see I’m not having much success. Everyone wants to read or criticize but few want to contribute.saai.gif

There's been a couple of threads in the past where people have given their reasons for preferring Chiang Rai, it's also a popular topic in most of the other regional forums (Why people prefer where they live).

You can try to use the search box with a few key words perhaps?

Many thanks for sharing situations and thoughts. I plan to settle in Chiang Rai in the future, I have been there as a tourist and always liked the geography and climate. Before comments are made, I have spent the last twenty years in Thailand doing business ( I speak Thai reasonably well, thai people will say very well), as well as exploring. I guess I have spent three of the last twenty years in Thailand.

Chiang Rai, Ko Samed and Krabi remain my favourites.

Five years ago I became a sole parent ( had to stop my thailand wholesale business ) of my two boys, who will be of age soon enough.

So I will move there as a single person, hence the original question, better to meet someone there ( Don seems to have managed that quite well, is that Don, Juan or Giovanni )

What I miss most is the Thai way of giving people time of day with a smile, that is almost disappeared in the more developed countries. ( sad but true )

You mention plans to settle in Chiang Rai and liking the geography and climate but perhaps you could elaborate a bit more on what draws you to this area of Thailand other than the Thai smile and liking solitude. Sometimes by sharing a little more you can stimulate others to add something.smile.png

I chose Chiang Rai after visiting on the way back from a trip to Mae Sai. I'd been living in Chiang Mai until then but a few days in Chiang Rai soon tempted me away. Quite ironic really as I'd passed through a few years earlier while backpacking around Asia and didn't think much of it at the time.
