Sawassdee.

Hello all. I have just joined this forum hoping that some of you here can give me advice on a few things. We are moving to South Thailand soon(September)We are planning to stay for a year. Is it easy to find a house for rent? We are interested in Nakhon Sithammarat and Trang provinces. I would appreaciate it if any of you who have a link to share regarding house rental. We are a family of 4. What's the rent for

a 3 or 4 bedroom house in these provinces like?High speed internet access is important for us. Is it available there?

We have 2 kids ages 5 and 7. We are planning to homeschool my 7 year old daughter and put her younger brother in a local Kindergarten. Does any of you know the procedure for enrolling a child(foreigner) in kindergarten there? What kind of kindy are available?

My daughter is intersted in learning Thai classical dance. Does any of you have info on this?

Thank you.

Thank you.

Houses are available but have never heard of any agents in Nakhon. 3-4 bedroom detached houses with garden run about 4-6000 a month. You should link up with one of the long term farang in town to guide you through the possibilities when you get here. Be careful, some people dealing without sound advice have been way over charged.

Most areas in town have ADSL and some of the moo-baan also have it. With kids you are probably better of in one of the out of town moo-baans, much quieter and more child friendly.

There are many private kindergarten in town. As for enrolling I doubt there will be any problems, just pay the fees. There is a 5 year old Anglo-Australian girl at my moo-baan going to one, no problems getting her in. As for classical Thai dancing, should not be a problem finding classes or teachers here, know a couple.

Need any other info PM me.

Hi sbk. Thanks for your response. Actually,now we are thinking about finding a place in either Patthalung or Trang province. Anyone knows about housing in these area? I'm just gonna homeschool my 2 kids and try to find some local kids their age as playmates. I would like to pm Gisele too to find out what's the house rental in Nokhon is like. I don't mind living in Nakhon though both my husband and I prefer the coast of Trang.

I live in gated community, 2 story, 3 bath, 3 bedrooms rent for about 6000 baht, there are plenty of new construction around Nakhon. I don't know of any agent.

My 12 year old daughter goes to a school with a good English program,

Spider,

Maybe consider Nakon and/or Trang, but Patthalung in my opinion is a bit too much in the 'unrest' provinces. In both Nakohn and Trang it's also probably easier to integrate with other (few) westerners around, in case you're interested in that at all.

Limbos,

Has there been any incident of 'unrest' in Pattalung?

My husband will be doing a research on music in local folk thetre. Thanks for the link. I will look at it eventhough I have decided to just homeschool my 5 year old boy too.

I wouldn't say Phattalung is anything like the unrest provinces. I have only ever found it to be very friendly, though also very quiet. Their is some beautiful scenery there too and it is so far relatively untouched tourism wise
