Obviously, there are many reasons people decide to visit Thailand and possibly settle down. These reasons may be very simple: limited budget retirement, access to cheap housing and very low cost of living. This may be due to a higher plane: varied Thai culture, exotic cuisine, tropical climate, friendly people, attractive beaches or lively nightlife.
There are some places in the world where you can find what Thailand has to offer. Pleasant climate, delicious food, friendly people, enchanting landscapes and very affordable living costs.
Starting with the main considerations to live or retire in a foreign country, let's see what Thailand offers.
- The cost of access to affordable housing is much lower than what you would need to pay for comparable homes in the western country. Obviously, a luxury apartment in Bangkok is more expensive than a comfortable and spacious house, somewhere on a sunny tropical beach.
- Access to excellent international schools teaching US or British curriculum. These schools are expensive, but there are private schools that place great emphasis on the Thai curriculum in English, and they are very favorable.
- Access to university education. Many local universities have exchange programs with overseas universities, where students can complete 50% in Thailand, then fill in a reminder in another country, such as the United States, Great Britain or Australia.
- Excellent health care. Private hospitals in Thailand provide a level of service that you can only dream of in other Western countries. Smaller remedies are cheap, while larger operations can be very expensive. The main items of private insurance cover are highly desirable.
- Exposure to Thai culture, history, and Buddhist lifestyle. The history of Thailand is a long way and remnants of various kingdoms, such as Sukothai and Ayudhya, for immediate exploration and challenge of their origin. In the northeast there are many remains of ancient Khmer churches, and in some areas people are still Khmer.
- Exotic and aromatic Thai food, including various tropical fruits. In case of doubt, however, McDonalds, KFC or Pizza Hut can buy food, have coffee at StarBucks and visit many restaurants serving international cuisine. In fact, very few countries offer such a wide range of international food markets in Thailand.
- Swimming and Sunbathing on a Sunny Sunny Tropical Beach where you can choose from rounded tourist beaches or completely deserted beaches. The most popular destinations in the southern islands around Phuket, Koh Chang on the east coast, and Koh Samui.
- A wide range of water sports. These include diving, water skiing, deep-sea fishing, jet skiing and para sailing.
- A wide range of golf courses with excellent quality golf courses throughout the year. The area around Pattaya offers the cheapest golfing with a choice of 24 courses.
- The Exotic Sightseeing Opportunity Points of Interest: Kanchanaburi, Chang Mai, Northern Territory of the Golden Triangle, Southern Islands, Koh Chang and many more. Of course, we should not forget Bangkok.
- The language. Thai is hard to learn and there is no doubt that non-Thai foreigners should live on the edge of "Thai society". For many, this is not a big problem.
- While most visitors praise the friendship and hospitality of the Thai people, obligations are more complex. The Thai people are proud and very protective of the property of the Thai and Thai people. Never start a argument with a Thai person because it simply causes frustration. The Thai is polite to show anger or anger to another person.
- The legal system does not favor foreigners. The Thai courts obviously make fair and unbiased decisions, but complications or disputes rarely go so far. Disputes are more likely to be resolved without access to legality. It comes from simple situations like traffic accidents. Here the effect and position often dictate the results.
