Can you live in Thailand permanently?

The question is: Do you WANT to live in Thailand permanently?
Of course, your answer is: YES!

What other country in the world has so much to offer?
Some people think that Thailand is a Third World developing country.
Oh well, one can be wrong.

Nobody and nothing are perfect, but Thailand, in our opinion, comes close.
With the utmost respect for its monarchy, religion (Thailand has the second largest Buddhist population in the world, after China, with approximately 64 million Buddhists), and of course for the Thais themselves, living in Thailand comes naturally.

Respect, because its monarchy and Buddhism has played a significant role in Thai culture and society.
No joking about here.

The easiest way to adapt to daily life here is to simply go with the flow.
Like anywhere else in the world: Stay out of trouble and stay safe.

Thais are very tolerant and easy to get along with.
Of course, they grew up in a different culture than your own.
However, living in THEIR country means that YOU must adapt and follow their rules and habits.
When you start a revolution on your own, it is likely that you will lose the battle against 70 million.
So, better keep your head down and go with the flow as mentioned earlier.

    I don’t want to spam you, but this is another good piece for people to read.
    When Charlie and I moved to Thailand, I was a bit skeptical about living in Asia.
    I have sensitive skin and was fearing for the worst. Also heard quite a few horror stories from people telling me that living in such a warm country is not easy, language barriers, and poor housing facilities. Oh dear, how wrong were they. You guys not only found us the perfect home to live in but also settled us in which was a great help in the beginning. A few years later now, we really enjoy living in Pattaya and are fully adopted to our new place which we like to call HOME. Thanks again.


      Amazing indeed how people can have an “opinion” about things they never even experienced before. Since 2003 we accommodated many clients, and so we understand what’s important to them.
      Selling a property is just part of our job. Making sure our clients are happy is the other part. We just walk “an extra mile” where others might hold.

    The first thing my friends asked when I moved here 5 years ago: Is Thailand a safe place to live?
    Many even thought Thailand is some kind of 3rd world country.
    OMG – I love living here in Pattaya. Life is easy as long as you go with the flow and respect the Thais for what they are proud of: The Monarchy and Buddhism.
    Ohhh… and of course the Thai cuisine! Treat people with respect and never look down on Thais, as they will not look down on you either. Thailand. Highly recommended.


      Sawasdee Krap Noah – I am guessing you are truly feeling “at home” here in Pattaya.
      So do I, Came here in 1997 and never left. Thailand is a wonderful country to live in.
      Pattaya in particular ticks all of my boxes with its close proximity to Bangkok and easy access in general.
      And “safe”? Oh yeah: Much safer than many other places in the world!
