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.
Whether you’re traveling to the Kingdom of Thailand for vacation, or you live here full time, there’s no doubt that you want to avoid contracting any tropical diseases. The one disease that springs to mind when people are planning a trip to Thailand is malaria. Some people take a course of tablets to prevent the […]
Looking to go trekking in Thailand? I don’t blame you. Thailand is renowned for its rolling hills, lush jungle and towering peaks. If you need some help planning your trip, and some tips on staying safe and what to pack, grab a drink and saddle up for the next 10 minutes, as we explore the […]
Have you ever dreamed of earning money while actually enjoying life and having some freedom to explore and travel? Yes, that is a thing, really! Unfortunately, many of us are stuck in jobs we don’t really want to do for the mere reason that we need to pay bills to live. But there is another […]
I have to say that prior to this review I had not heard of Glossika. I was contacted by the company and asked if I'd be interested in reviewing the platform for my readers. It looked pretty interesting, so I replied and let them know that I would need to fully test the platform myself […]
Upon landing in the Kingdom of Smiles, you’ll likely be greeted by warm, sunny weather and a blast of humidity.

With that in mind, you’ll need to plan in […]
Whether you’re taking a gap year from college or a mid-life sabbatical, seeing a country from the inside out, rather than through a hotel window, is generally a more rewarding experience. And volunteering in Thailand gives you the opportunity to do just that. It does, however, require some forethought and planning. In this post, I'll […]

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 […]
Thailand is home to a diverse wildlife that includes 1,000s of creepy crawlies – and that means spiders, too.
