  • How to Live Cheap In Thailand by Chuck "Charlie" Wilson

    How to Live Cheap In Thailand by Chuck "Charlie" Wilson

    You can live on 200,000 baht a month in Thailand or you can live on 25,000 baht a month. It depends on how foolish you are with your money. I have been living in Thailand for years living on a shoestring budget of less than 25,000 baht a month. It is not that I do not have more money on hand to spend, but more that I like to save several thousand dollars a year while I am living a Cheap Charlie lifestyle in Thailand. Those of you that drop 100,000 to 200,000 baht a month may be wondering how that is even possible. You may be tempted to call me a liar.

    The Thai Police: What Proactive Changes Should They Make?

    The police in Thailand already have a tough job, so I am going to try not to knock them too much. For one, their wages are absolutely below what a person that puts his life on the line needs to be. Thai police officers also have to purchase their own weapons, uniforms and I am told, their patrol motorcycles. I cringe every time I see two or three of them on one motorbike weaving in and out of the crazy and dangerous Thai traffic system. On top of all the expenses, they have to be in the heat, rain...

  • A History of Expats in Thailand

    A History of Expats in Thailand

    There were quite a few Westerners residing in Bangkok prior to the Japanese occupation of the Kingdom during World War II. The British expats had the most impact on Thai society before and after the war. They established the British Chamber of Commerce in 1946. English taught to Thais was British English and many children of the royal family were educated abroad in England. There influence continues to this day as more and more British expats are relocating to Thailand for work or retirement.
