General chat about life in the Land Of Smiles. Discuss expat life, relationship issues and all things generally Thailand and Asia related.
Two words of advice: medical insurance. At lease for inpatient/serious illnesses or accident (you know about the roads here, right? I stay on four wheels, safer). If an estimate doesn't include that it's not realistic IMO. Some people seem to get by on a prayer that they don't get a hospital bill for a two or three million Baht one day. It's a choice.
Oh yes and as one mentioned you always have to figure on U.S. Taxes will take a big bite out of your income and investments annually. Because of some unexpected capital gains in my investments my U.S. Tax bill was over $8,000 this past year. You got to love paying taxes when you get little or no benefit from them when living in Thailand.
