    No. Just buy your visas on arrival, pay the bribes, don't complain and stay out of trouble.

    If there is a bi-lateral agreement in place between the host state and that of the migrant then double taxation is avoided. Such a schedule of agreement exists between the UK and Thailand and if one pays tax on earned income in one country then the same revenue will not be taxed in the other.

    I pay UK tax on my pension income derived from the UK and this is transferred regularly to Thailand but I do not pay tax locally.

    I suggest posters check for double-taxation agreements between their countries and Thailand/Cambodia before posting shite.

    I'd love to see Cambodia eclipse Thailand as a retiree destination. The arrogance of the people and government are long overdue for an economic spanking. Hit them in the pocketbook and they'll come begging.

    ^

    Dunno about that,

    Just because Cambodia may make it easier to stay long term I doubt it has the attractions Thailand has to offer.

    For some it does but not for all, myself included in that lot.

    Not arguing but just saying. It's certainly not everybody's cup of tea.

    I will go back next year and have another looky.

    Nice to see that the medical side of things are on the up and up.

    This is important for the old turds that hang there.

    You like it or not Cambodia sucks about almost everything compared to Thailand. This is a fact not an idea.

    Wine is much cheaper and the restaurant scene is much more interesting. Bangkok is dictated by generic hotel restaurants and have become a dreary bore. Of course, I'm concerned with Phnom Penh and not the rest of the country which no doubt is probably no different to provincial Thailand in its humdrum tedium or awfulness.

    Actually I found whilst wandering around the Cambodia countryside a surprizing amount of sophistication and education. Sure enough they are much poorer than Thai, but they try very hard to improve thier lot. I found that to be true in Laos as well.

    Has anyone tested the new visa and it implementation. Thailand is starting to work on my nerves after 16 years with their growing arrogance.

    The only income subject to taxation in Thailand,...is that income earned in Thailand.

    Interesting observation. I found the opposite in rural Issaan....I had expected them to be masters at fixing machinery on the cheap, but I was very hard pressed to find an old pair of pliers at my wife's parents place. It seems that when this are broken, they cannot fix them and somehow scrape up enough money to buy a new one.

    At present i divide my time between Oz and Thailand. Am thinking of retiring in a third country close to Thailand so that it is easier for lady Cow to visit relatives in Bangkok and check up on Cow manor. Thinking of Phili Cambodia or Laos. Looking for suggestions from people whom have lived in and around Thailand.
