Hi Carpy Why not just get the cash from your home bank and buy in Thailand? Westpac are always offering us all the cash we want against our home here. I have asked about buying a house in Thailand and that is no problem. They have the home house as security against the cash so they don't give a toss...

All time favorite is Oliver Stones "Platoon". Don't own it on DVD but have seen it probably 20 times. If its on the box then don't disturb me. Luc Besson's "The Profession" - Jean Reno as Leon the assassin and Natalie Portman as the 12 year old Mathilda cast excellent but the freaky drug addict narc...

In my case I always introduce my wi...

You (and other Aussies) are doing that now. My view here in NZ is that everytime I look around there is another thai...there's a new one arrived in this house....

If you wanted to buy land and buy a very good basic comfortable 3 bedroom house within the ring road you would be looking at about ฿1.8million being about ฿600,000 to 700,000 for an existing filled section and about ฿1,100,000 to ฿1,200,000 for the house.
