It's all about the exchange rate my friend,..
AND, it's all about the warm friendly people, the good beer, the tasty food,
the climate, the warm waters, the gorgeous islands.
A great place to explore, to shop, to visit, to live.
It's about the culture, the Thai massages, the smiles. Why? Why not?
A condo in Southern California near the beach is $550.000. In Thailand, $30.000.
Enough said. But, it is good to be the king. If you can't show up here with a way to make money or with enough banked to keep you going, you're going to be going home. The bad news is, home doesn't have any jobs either, so, it's a mad merry go round.
If you can show up here, buy a car or motorcycle, buy a condo on the beach and somehow make some money, perhaps on the web. You very well might be an extremely happy guy.
You'll walk into a pool hall, there will be a girl there to play pool for you, because that's her job. You'll get a massage, you'll have a Thai girl friend, you'll travel to neighborhood Thai islands and you'll have time on your hands to actually live rather than sit in traffic on the 405. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to realize this place is really fun. Plus, you'll never be cold again, unless you put the ac on too cold.
