  1. News: Re: Thailand places in top ten for best retirement haven

    I completely agree with you, Bergen. No doubt you'll agree that this current period is different because of concern over the king's age. This is a subject we probably should not dwell on, however,...

    I don't understand it either, David.

  3. News: Re: Fatal stabbing over Facebook comments in East Pattaya

    This is something which has never occurred to me. Do you think Thais alone carry this trait, or are there other groups who share this "genetic makeup"?
  4. News: Re: Thailand places in top ten for best retirement haven

    Good question, Rick Thai. As others have suggested on this forum, it would be best to have a long visit of perhaps a few months to a year before deciding where to settle down.

    In the U.S. we also use that number for medical emergencies, which obviously can be literally a lifesaver. I believe it has been successful here, and hopefully it will be in Thailand also.
