Mai Bpen Rai – Living In Thailand

Foreigners living in Thailand

As I drive around Hua Hin, Bangkok, and other areas in Thailand, I see so many Westerners going about their daily lives, trying to complete mundane tasks or every day chores.

Why Thailand?

A man taking a break on the Klong in Thailand

So why did we choose Thailand over other wonderful places we’ve been before (Southern France; Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; Rio de Janeiro; Spain) or somewhere interesting we’ve never been?

While I definitely love France and Saudi Arabia (have lived in both countries), I can’t own land or operate a business without being a full citizen in either place. (My friend Robin is a dual citizen with EU status…lucky her. Speaking of, check out her awesome foodie blog – A Chow Life.)
