Re: Top 10 places to retire from Forbes

I have lived in Canada all my 55 years and I can tell you it is expensive with bad and worse winters depending on where you live in the country. Also the crime level is a lot worse than most people think with many gangs and murders over fighting for drug dealing turf.

Re: Montly rental in Udon?

Would you not buy because renting is better or you don't like your house?

Re: Montly rental in Udon?

Hello, I will be in Udon in Nov. and I am looking for a place to rent for about 5 months. A small house or bungalow in a resort would be fine as long as it has cooking facilities and is quiet and clean. I have my own transportation so out of town a bit is o.k., something around 10,000 baht per month...

Re: Venomous Snakes of Udon Thani

Yes, similar to those but slimmer and a very light solid green color. It also rolls itself into a small ball and looks like a piece of surgical rubber and almost the same color.

I am in Vancouver Canada and I just got 3 tourist visas valid for 60 days each for free, no charges at all. Just a smile.

Re: Venomous Snakes of Udon Thani

It definately had legs and looked more like a snake than your picture with it's head being the same size as it's body. This was in Hua Hin and was as solid yellow green color.

Re: Venomous Snakes of Udon Thani

It had a long slim body like a snake, did not resemble a lizard at all and was a very light green, almost a yellow color. My Thai gardener and others were very afraid of it. They also could run very fast. The snake that is, not the gardener. :lol:

Re: Venomous Snakes of Udon Thani

Has anyone ever heard of a small green snake about 10 in.long and about 1/4 in. thick with 4 legs. I found one in my shed outside curled up in a ball looking a piece of rubber. I touched it wIth a long stick and it jumped about a foot into the air and stood there glaring at me. It looks just like a ...

Re: Being ripped off time and time again

I think the reason we are so willing to lend money and help people when we first come to Thailand is that the need is so great here and we see people struggling when a few baht will make a difference to them. Unfortunately the need is so great we could give everything we have and still not really ch...

Re: Being ripped off time and time again

I think the bottom line is don't give if you want or need it back. I may give if I want to but I don't expect it back. No problems that way. If money ever becomes a problem with Thai wife or friends I would move on right away. Don't ever feel pressured to do anything you are not comfortable with. Yo...

Re: supporting thai wife

I don't undertand why people would pay money like that but I do know the lady I am talking about drives a nice car, owns two houses, goes out a lot and only works part time. She definately has the money from her bf so this does happen although it is hard to understand why. I could not afford it and ...

Re: supporting thai wife

My tgf does not bother me about money but her friends are shocked that i don't give her a lot of money. Her sister gets about 45,000 per month from her bf in the usa and some of her friends get more than that. I would never see her do without and she lives a good life with me but I don't believe in ...

Re: supporting thai wife

In Issan 10,000 baht a month is enough for a basic lifestyle for Thai people. With the rent paid she would be fine and should have a little left over. The other thing though is emergencies such as sickness or accidents which of course can eat up the budget very quickly. I help my gf with a little mo...

Re: Udon Thani Big Cycle

Believe me I am not rich, If I was I would be in Thailand now and not working in Canada. The three things I have always needed is a good Harley, a good girl and a cold beer. Easy to find the beer. Jai Yen Yen.
