    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.
    I do not give Patsycat " The Horn " thank Fuk.

    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.
