It seems that the Destination Thailand Visa is finally happening:

"In addition, the country will introduce the Destination Thailand Visa service, targeting digital nomads, freelancers and visitors looking to perform or learn skills such as cooking and Muay Thai.

The new visa type, valid for five years, allows holders to stay up to 180 days."

The DTV could be a good option for those who want to stay 180 days per year to avoid being taxed here - seems like a middle-ground visa between tourist and non-immigrant.

^Yes it's definitely something that I'm considering.
I've already made a start at looking for property in Europe, I've rented for years in Luxembourg but the prices wouldn't be viable once I've finished working so I'm considering over the border in France where it's still pretty cheap to buy.
I like this area because you have France, Belgium, Germany and Luxembourg close together and it's easy to go to another country for a day out without any real effort.
