Re: Cambodia clamps down on expat visas

The whole phenomena of expats working on-line is a very tricky one. I don't see how or why. What is the problem with someone working online, earning money in another country, and spending it in their chosen one, be it Cambodia or Thailand? Logically the country they're in is benefiting from inbound...

Re: UK visa for Thai wife/girlfriend

My Thai friend was advised by an agent/lawyer in HuaHin to apply for a one month visa for a visit to the U.K. She got a 6 month visa from the embassy, however when I was waiting and waiting to meet her at Heathrow I eventually received a phone call from a very irritated customs officer. He had notic...

Re: Best Hua Hin Steak 2017

Best steak I have had in HuaHin was at The Fishermens , it a French owned restaurant near the pier. Steak is served on a hot stone so you can decide how you like it done. Good choice of veg to go with it. I was last there in April and hope it is still there when I return next week. For something dif...

Re: Bitcoin mining and cryptocurrency thread

I, like many others may be, am fed up with paying so-called experts fees to take care of my money and expect me to be happy at making a meagre 7% a year (if I'm really lucky). VS I would happily pay someone to make me 7% a year on my cash........................................ 7% is the long term ...

Re: Bitcoin mining and cryptocurrency thread

I'm not sure whether AJBangkok is a financial advisor, or just bemused (as I used to be) at the whole concept of cryptocurrencies. Banks and financial advisors despise cryptocurrencies because now people can be in complete control of their money, and avoid the substantial profits that the 'establis...

Re: Biggest Benefit to Being Expat

Speaking from the viewpoint of a retiree I feel the biggest benefit is to experience a new and exciting chapter in my life. The weather also is a huge plus. The cost of living also helps but I suppose the government will catch on eventually and bump up the taxes. Healthcare I find here is excellent ...

I believe you can sell the lease, not the house, as a lessee you don't own it.
I thought it was the other way round.

A lease does not give ownership, only the right to reside for up to 30 years, you never own or can sell the property
Surely you can sell the house and arrange a new 30 year lease?

There can only be three possible reasons for why the situation on the roads here is as it is:

1 - Don't care
2 - Stupidity
3 - Both of the above
Yes we know that but the post asks what can be done to change it.

Re: Thailand to introduce compulsory travel insurance/tourist tax

Compulsory travel health insurance merely forces people to do what they should be doing. Why should the Thai taxpayer pick up the bill for irresponsible foreigners. This is obviously unfortunate for people with health problems who can't get insurance. Perhaps this could be got round by them providi...
