I already have narrowed it down to about 8 places, after doing some traveling around TH for the last 3 weeks. But, I’m interested in YOUR idea about the best place in Thailand to live.
If you reply – let me know the place, the reasons you like it – and what your overall idea of life is…
For me – I just need an internet connection. I enjoy outdoors activities. Love hunting snakes. Love hiking. Climbing. I despise cities. I don’t like baan naawk villages either. I like towns with few tourists, and even fewer during the slow season. I like certain foods. I have to live fairly close to a decent Makro with pretzels and Doritos… I need heat. Doesn’t need to be year round – but I couldn’t possibly live in Chiang Rai for instance.
I don’t need bars or massage or the other typical farang ‘necessities’.
I’d like to be close to a major airport and the train since I don’t take buses.
Hmm, what else?
I think that’s about it.
I’ve narrowed “the best place to live” in Thailand for me down to:
- Nong Khai
- Prachuap Khiri Khan
- Nakhon si Thammarat
- and possibly Trang.
Any great Thailand destination I’m missing based on the criteria I mentioned?
