The Thailand Life started as an outlet for me to share my experiences with folks back home, but quickly I found that those experiences also helped others with their plans for living/travelling in Thailand. Things have changed massively among the expat community in the last 10 years. Thailand is attracting a diverse crowd of foreign nationals from all over the world.
The shorelines of Thailand are a main draw for tourism, but for those who've watched Jaws one too many times, there may be some fear around swimming and diving in the turquoise waters of Thailand. It's easy to fret about the potential of sharks in the water, but while there are indeed sharks in Thailand, […]
If there's one thing I hate about Thailand, it's jet lag. Jet lag causes fatigue, insomnia and even symptoms like constipation and nausea. Seriously, once I'm over it, it's enough to make me not want to step on a plane and go home again. Flying West to East is notoriously bad, and with 7 hours […]
