The Thailand guide

Latest articles

You will be amazed to find out that Thailand has a lot to offer for all the adrenaline and action buffs. Beyond the numerous temples, tuk-tuks and tom yum, Thailand has a vibrant and increasing adventure scene. Experience a broad range of adventure sports in Thailand with the following.

Thailand has a lot to offer, and it is easy to fall in love with the Land of Smiles with its rich culture, gastronomic foods, and lovely people. The Kingdom can be the best place for you to retire in if you could meet the standard requirements and regulations they have.

Although some jobs aren't permitted to foreigners in Thailand, there is still an array of career opportunities in this rapidly developing South-East Asian nation. Certain sectors are easier for foreigners to find jobs in — notably tourism and teaching — but if you can prove you have required skills that are difficult to find locally, then opportunities in other sectors are also likely to be available to you.

The tropical island of Phuket is very popular among foreigners who are looking to integrate Thai culture and the beach into their everyday life. As an expat, you will need to follow the same visa regulations and procedures as you would elsewhere in the country, even though the laidback vibe of Phuket is quite different compared to cities such as Bangkok. If you want to find a job in Phuket, you will need to be able to offer skills that aren't available locally.

Pattaya may not be as idyllic as some of Thailand's other beach destinations, but it is still one of the most popular thanks to the wide variety of activities, accommodation and pulsating nightlife options that it offers. Located a mere 150km south-east of Bangkok, its easy access makes it a well-frequented beach resort and many expats living in the capital head to Pattaya to windsurf, waterski, play golf, snorkel, or sail to nearby islands. Due to the large number of expatriates living in Pattaya, there is also an excellent selection of authentic foreign eateries.

This blog describes volunteer work with children for a foundation in Isaan. It covers both major and day to day issues protecting children from traffickers and abuse. I also talk about small town living in Nang Rong, Buriram and touring in Thailand. I also show trips in adjacent countries with an emphasis on Myanmar, where I work with a foundation that imports most of that country's English language children's books.
