Hi Everyone!
I am currently living in France but would love to move to Chiang Mai next January.
Indeed, I did a 6months trip in South-East Asia and really had a "crush" of this city.
Would be amazing if anyone had contacts in any kind of area/work to help me move there - once in the city I can offer you a beer :)
Hope you're all doing great!
Take good care,

Hello!  We call ourselves the Laptop Warriors and have just sold our home and stuff in Canada to relocate to Koh Samui.  Have been here for 2 months so would love to meet any other expats living on the Island. We are living in beautiful Nathon.  Doing a bunch of travelling southeast asia, Chiang Mia this weekend and next weekend in Bali.  Finding it to be very accessible, except for the ferries hehe. We are loving working and living abroad here in Thailand!!  There are so many pinch me moments!  Would also love if anyone knew of where the "tech" community hangs out on Koh Samui.  Nadine and Fraser

Hi I just moved here and so don't really know anyone, I'm also currently looking for work here in Chiangmai - so if anyone could out me in touch with potential employers that'd be great. Alternatively if you want to go for a beer I'm up for that too 😊

My name is David and I'm an US Citizen currently living and working in Michigan.  I've become interested in a the expat experience and hoping to find work in the high-tech manufacturing sector since I believe Thailand is a world leader in a number of fields.  I'm married and 51 with both of my children on their own.  The time is right for a project like this and hope this site will help in finding where I might look for opportunities.  I have worked in Mexico and Canada on and off during the years I was involved in automotive interior projects but those assignments, though very educational, were not significant cultural challenges.   Ideally I would like to speak with expats who might have a similar background and made a successful transition to working in Thailand.


My name is Bill and I too live in Chiang Mai. How can I contact you for a beer or coffee.
I do go to Loco Elvis at times, in part to do people watching there. Plus I know a coffee shop up the street, with coffee at 30baht.
In terms of work that's a very tricky situation in Thailand. It's possible but there are a lot of legal hoops to jump through. I can fill you in later.

Hello Nico, I posted yesterday under Cars and Transportation asking for a company that can export my Thai scooter to Vietnam for me, perhaps your company can advise me please? Regards, Huw Collett

Just a thought - January is the high or peak tourist season for  Chiang Mai.

Also, you might want to look for a sponsor for doing work in Thailand. The Thai's are a bit sensitive about allowing foreigners doing work that Thai's can do. Teaching is another option, but the pay would not be commensurate with French pay scale (maybe $590 US a month). One could live on that but somewhat modestly. There is also independent IT work, on the internet. By Thai immigration, you need a work visa for that kind of work. Many do it without the work visa, but if they get caught they are permanently bar from reentering the country.

Just some thoughts.

Hello Im new here!

Im planning to visit thailand and im looking for any opportunity that might pop up during my stay there, i only looking for a simple job that compensate me even a little, i dont mind getting paid hourly. i can be a dish washer,cleaner,baby sitter or any kind of simple jobs.
inorder for me to sustain my basic needs during my stay and also fund my back packing travel for the next country.

please if you happen to know or looking for anything that you might need my services in any ways please contact me.

thank you and god bless!


Just a thought, and I don't know if it will lead anywhere but you never know. There is an organization called the CMCC, Chiang Mai Community Church. For one they present classes on subjects such as transitioning in Chiang Mai. They MIGHT provide some direction for employment. Categorically speaking any foreigner looking for work has to go through the immigration or such hoops to get a work permit, which are not openly given out. You might be able to get something on the sly, but if you get caught you may not like the consequences.

Hello everyone!
Just joined this group today. I am currently living in Phuket, Thailand but only temporarily. My husband and I are retired and travelling full time. We house sit and have been doing this for three years now. We are planning to be in SE Asia for the next 3-5 years.
We are trying to find our little slice of paradise, wherever that may be, and are meeting some fantastic people along the way.

Karen, I would be interested in finding out more about your housesitting, Please send us your private E-Mail so we can continue our conversation.
