I think you are lucky now if you get a bin collection every 2 weeks in the UK in many councils..........

Plus you have to separate everything which is a pain.........

 

OP - I would pay more in Council Tax for things like the above in the UK then I do for my Village charges here.

Also not sure why you keep going on about cars as it is well known that unless built here there are punitive import/duty charges so what is the point in going on about it.........:wacko:

school. road. street cleanliness etc? you will not get out of the village? ;)

not only car.. 

you know how much sports equipment?
  My Thai friend asked me to bring from Europe Moto protection (helmet, jacket, gloves, armor)
  bicycle and golf clubs..

If Thailand is so much more expensive that the UK why are Brits (many not very rich in UK terms/standards) retiring here ? Yes imported stuff are more expensive here and vehicles are more expensive but everything is relative. For example a normal small sedan will cost you B 2 million plus in Singapore due to the high registration costs while the same vehicle will be B 800 k in Thailand. If you want to eat western food everyday you should stay in a western country or start to make your own food. Restaurants selling western food have much bigger profit margins than Thai food restaurants. When I eat steak I buy Australian beef at Makro and BBQ it myself, at B 450 to B 550 per kg for rib eye. In a restaurant it will cost you B 1500 upwards. If you however eat Thai food and don't want to drive a new vehicle every year you live much cheaper here than most other countries in the world.

I have a hypothesis why.

 But topic not about this is.

make own western and many another food its same more expensive in Thailand

This again, OP?

 

Why not just bump one of your old threads on the subject rather than starting yet another one?

how big?

 in Thailand  for me its 105-180

 steak its can say 600 up on my to my taste

 so it can say double price( in UK it little be upper price than in US but still cheaper than in Thailand)

 

I am thinking about340gr each

They of course have much larger as large as you want

 

Things like whole turkeys here are 10baht per 453 grams / 1lb

Your argument has no merits. People have spent many many pages pointing this out to you. At this stage, you're just trolling.

And what State would that be?

I lived in rural Calif. (Sacramento) and I can tell you that my housing costs were $3000 dollars a month ....(including everything but food and car)

That was 10 years ago.....I hate to think what it is now.

 

As for food and car I suspect the costs can be  on par with Thailand but I tended to overspend.

 

Well as I said it is in the top 3 or 4 States

 

I am not in the habit of listing the state I live in online...you know how it is these days :wink:

 

But as I said for us these are the facts.

It is just about identical with a slight nod to cheaper here

 

But I will also say we live a simple life & own everything outright.

Never pay interest, rent etc

 

We live near a National park ...spend a lot of time hiking & biking there

If not then we go swimming. All things equal these things are way better here climate/cleanliness wise

 

But as luck would have it we are off tonight back to Thailand due to wife's mother

being in final stages of Cancer

 

So in some ways I will get a perfect comparison with fresh eyes

 

You know after 4+ years in Thailand I did feel so sad when we left.

Took a month & a half to get over it.

But now we are settled here & the sheer beauty is not to be discounted

 

 

But like I said tonight we fly & get to see Thailand with fresh eyes

Will be interesting

 

PS: by the way what you said about housing costs I understand that possibility but it never pertained to us as I was

a building contractor all my life. Built my home (quite a few) & also my kids homes. So costs for me was always

a fraction of someone buying a home. I just bought land

I can tell you that my wife and I live considerably more cheaply here than we did in the UK - and that our quality of life has improved at the same time. But I don't think you're interested in hearing anything others have to say.

I agree with you and can only think he is trying to up his post count or something as this is a to me a never ending discussion with no definitive answer - as everyone is different and all costs are relative. Simplistic - yes :thumbsup:

That's fine....But the point was that to build in the US costs at a minimum $100/sq ft vs $25/sq ft in Thailand.

Thailand is Cheaper

I think he just envies those of us who live here, and makes this stuff up to help himself feel better about it. 

 

It's hard to tell, though, because his english is appalling.
