Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!!! I have been consolidating all of my research on Thailand on Chiang Mai however, Chanthaburi is our backup city. It is time I start learning what it is like living in Chanthaburi. I am interested in things like: cost of living, availability of apartments/houses to rent, what are the local people like, food choices, quantity of expats in the area, is any English spoken and of course anything else anyone can think of to add.

Cost of living, we are back to how long is a piece of string?

availability of apartments/houses to rent, they exist, without the help of a local you will have a job to find them if you dont at least speak Thai. We rent a house there for 4,000 baht per month.

what are the local people like conservative but very friendly once they get to know you.

food choices limited.

quantity of expats in the area hardly see any.

is any English spoken little.

and of course anything else anyone can think of to add. best city/province in Thailand, if you want a farang lifestyle this place aint for you.

You say, Chanthaburi is our backup city.

Are you talking about a Thai or farang parner?

If Thai it will make things easier, one thing I have learned about Thais, they are like homing pidgeons, they all want to go back to their village where they fit it and know their place on the totem pole of local society.

None of my business, if you are thinking of bringing a BG to this area the locals will smell her a mile away and you will be treated accordingly.

Yeah, don't take any whores to Chantaburi like he says up there. Take an umbrella, that would be better.

Great info, but pardon my ignorance what is a BG?

Rains a lot as stated. Hence the great amount of fruit grown there. It is the "fruit basket" of Thailand, apparently. Even more so than Jomtien. tongue.png

I work between Koh Chang and Chanthaburi, and spend a lot of time there most weeks.

Price wise, rentals are pretty good value, some nice properties around to rent for 15k. Usual places for eating, and there are Makeover, Tesco, Big C and Robnson in the main town. Outside of the city, some nice beaches and seafood resteraunts.

There are a few expats around, and if course the gem traders in the gem market.

A great golf course in Soi Dao and easy to get to Samet and Koh Chang.

Little English is spoken there, but the locals are pleasant and it is a more affluent province than most.

Yeah, don't bring any whores, the locals don't like competition. You should see the fat pigs in the local fishbowl!

By the way, plenty of Falang food and enough Falang to keep you entertained. Real nice lake to go exercise around, generally a nice town to reside in.

I am not trying to be funny here, but please provide some basic info of what you want.

You ask about Chan but give no details of who you and your partner are, all I see on you pic is some legs.

What exactly is it you want to know, who exactly are you and your partner, whats your budget, can you or your partner read and speak Thai?

Do you need access to hospitals, will you be doing visa runs, can you eat peasant Thai food, have you ever been here, if so what provinces have you visited and why didnt they suit?

Are you a sportsperson, do you play golf, do you want watersports, do you have a Thai drivers license?

Will you be seeking employment here, are you a TEFLr?

Whats your budget for two people per month?

Are you getting this?

There are people on here who live and work in this great part of Thailand, (be aware its not for everyone), who can answer your questions, do you know what questions to ask?

If not just say so and ask, fire away, no-one will bite.
