Ribsauce, if you are comming to samui have a drive and look around. The house next door is identical to mine and is free so check it out. I could negotiate you a killer deal like I got too.


I'm here now. Where is the best place to go/learn windsurfing in the Chaewng area? I'm about to walk around and try to find a place.

I won't be trying to find a house until next summer but thanks for the offer

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

degen,

I've read the entire thread as it's been formed, but there's still kinda a gray area in my mind. What is the best way for someone coming into thailand to find where he should stay for a month or so. I've read that it's best to ride around and try and find a place but it's a little scary to just show up in a thai airport hoping you can pass the language barrier and figure out how to find a place to stay.

I think I might be most at home just going to phi phi or some place similar to it. I have no idea what would be best as in what airport to fly into, and how in the world to find a good place to stay in other then paying overpriced online prices. Have you been to Phi Phi? and if so, how would be a good way of finding a place to stay?

also, if there's a better place to stay then phi phi for just being sorta remote, and being able to sit on an open beach I'm open to other places.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Actually I'm able to play poker and access Neteller and Party Cashier (I'm Canadian) without a proxy or whatever right now in Thailand.

The worst things I saw in Thailand are the beggars on Sukhumvit.

weird. last time i was there i accidentally logged into neteller and they froze my account.

party cashier would return an error message saying i could make deposits/withdraw from thailand.
I know, when I was in Thailand last year, it was the same for me. I came here with the expectation of having to use a proxy, but I never had to up to now. Maybe the coup have some benefits ?

"The worst things I saw in Thailand are the beggars on Sukhumvit. "

Thats the worst thing you have seen in Thailand? I think thais who cut me in line at the bank then start picking their nose for 5 mins are worse then beggers.

Rib: I know a guy who has a kitboarding shop in Big Buddah but they are packed up because now is not the season. But there is a hotel in Chaweng that does lessons. Let me see if I can find the name

There is no way you can get a nanny/cook to come to the USA for $2,000 a year. Your out of your mind. The Aurpair program which is basically what you are looking for makes you pay the Thai girl $175 a week or more. You have to pay standard minium wage. You think just cause they are thai you can pay them $2 an hour? Do you know anything about labor laws? What your asking for is a slave.
This truly was a random comment and as such, I was not serious. Besides, there would be no reason to go to Thailand for this as there are plenty of Mexican illegals to go around.

I appreciate the information on the spas and hotel sitting services though.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

One thing guys.. I see that u know everything about Thailand...I readed from this thread abt racism. Is it true that tha ppls dont like european ppls ? :P Ofc there is some ppls who likes but now im talking like 80% of thai ppls
Example if there is like 5 thai guys, can u just go to talk them without getting ur ass kicked ?
