Hello atukeilucy,


Welcome to Expat.com 1f601.svg


You should post an advert in the Bangkok classifieds section.

This will increase your chances of finding someone.

Hi, my name is Tim.  My son is married to a girl from Buriram.  My wife and I live in the states, but wold like to move to Thailand for a year or so.  Currently we are considering Koh Samui.  We haven't been there yet, but are planning on making a visit in March or April.  Thinking about staying at Lamai Beach area.  It is suppose to be quite beautiful, and popular for expats.  Does anyone out there have any thoughts on that?  Thank you...

Last time I was here, departed QUICKLY!!!! 

March 2020 the airport was closing and had to make an hasty departure.


In the mean time, trying to reconnect.  For example, I remember a food truck with hamburgers.  Cann't remember the name associated with it and would love to find it again.


Classical music at one of the schools, I don't remember the name, would have concerts.

Hi,


I visited Thailand last year and I had so much fun. I spent most of the time in the Bangkok Street Market and Chatuchak Market. I can't contain myself from eating the mouth-watering street foods. My heart was full as well buying fashionable clothes. Wasn't able to visit other cities since I just stayed for 5 days. Hopefully, I can visit Chiang Mai and witness the festival.

@Julien Hi ! I am currently here in the Philippines trying to look for an opportunities overseas. I have the skillsets relevant to the role. Planning to relocate if will be given a chance. I can also work remotely as well. Currently , I am working at home and have all the necessary equipment if you will require me working remotely.

Hi Tehraan,


Sorry to hear about that.


May I suggest that you have a look at offers posted in the Jobs in Thailand and perhaps create your CV in that same section ?
