Maybe Thailand?

I have seen alot of positive stuff about living in Thailand.
For me it may be a real culture shock but I am considering giving in a try in the near future. At least a month vaca.
Can I ask those with experience there what do you think may be my areas of attraction and my challenges.
Cannot speak one work of the language and have no patience to learn.

I would probably like to find an expat area at least to start off preferably North Americans.
Any particular ciites?
Going solo, no interest in working there just one of a few places as a consideration for an ER home.

Re: Maybe Thailand?

I worked for a few years afor a company where I regularly was in Malaysia for weeks at a time. I met expats that lived in Bangkok. The beaches to the south are very nice and are inexpensive by US standards. So is the cost of staff and living. But the people who had chosen Thailand all loved it.

There are expat (British) communities there. It is a long way from the US with flying times of 18+ hours. And the time zone differences makes communicating by phone a challenge.

For me. I can get the savings advantages in Mexico and I want to learn Spanish.
For the fun of it...Keith
