Good and bad things in Thailand

Is it really everything so nice and easy in Thailand? What disadvantages do I have in Thailand? What dangers I must aware in Thailand? Why did I start this page with Contra questions?

Well in my experience it is that most people fall in love with Thailand after the first holiday in this beautiful country. I myself was lost in love after my first vacation in Thailand. It was just a short holiday about 16 days. But the first I did after I came back home was to search in the world wide web how I can live forever in Thailand. Until it happened, it took a few years and I had many holidays in Thailand. After every holiday the magic was gone a bit more and I saw many of the darker sites of Thailand. But as you see I still love it.

Not that you get me wrong here. I don’t want to bring a bad sight of this wonderful country. I love this country like no other, and living in Thailand can be so wonderful. I just want open your mind and give you the view of all parts. That is to say that even the not so beneficial and negative characteristics will be examined. If one is aware of this and know how it is walkable. Cultural differences and the other way of life can be hard. These are subjective and everyone here needs to find out for himself what he likes good or bad. As easy it is for us to have a nice holiday in that country so pretty hard is it to live there. But maby it’s the right way coz otherwise our beloved Thailand would already be over populated by foreigners. Thus, it would lose its charm. On the other hand, it makes our lives more complicated there. As a pensioner with enough pension it is still relatively easy to obtain a residence permit. For everyone else it´s much harder. Thailand changed from year to year the visa requirements and most times not for make it easier for us. Therefore, I strongly advise to the part with the various visa types on this website and study it well. Rights in general we farrangs don’t have. We can´t own basically nothing, because 51% must always include a Thai. This is the case with houses and companies. Depending on what you want in your life, you must include that in your plan. Topics like medical care are really different from our well known system. This words here are just a little kick to thinking. There are no problems that can´t be fixed. And this is especially true for Thailand. Many have had shown us the way and having a beautiful life in Thailand.
