Trading in Thailand

  1. You have to allocate $1,000 per month for a living expenses. including visas. Check with Thai embassy what is required for your particular situation.
    I go there for r&r and know country reasonably well but if you want basic western standard and high speed internet you will not be able to do it below $ 1,000 per month ( no car )

    Cambodia is nice but maybe a bit boring for a long stay. A bit cheaper then Thailand but not as many amenities.
    I stayed at some hotel where they had a spa attached. They had steam rooms , sauna, spas, fluffy towels, a movie lounge etc (where girls massage your feet while you watch the movie)., drinks, all inclusive (not including hotel) about $14.
    Good french cafes and food too. But I speak some thai and no Cambodian so inconvenient for me.

  10. I was just over there two weeks ago for about 12 days. Flew into Bangkok, then flew to Chaing Mai (cruzzed around on elephants, saw monkey show, and snake show), then from there went to Phuket. The beaches at Phuket were narly. Very similar to the beaches in Fiji. It was very cheap at most of the places I was at. It's amazing out there. The people were sooooo nice everywhere. You'll never see that in good old Cali.
