    Read such in a book, I'm sure.

    Hey, if that sort of thing gets your rocks off, go sniff it out. It's your life.
    Obviously it's not what i am interested in word twister or I would not have come back after 3 days and I only went to PP, sounds like you have been to the brothel town snooky then or you would not know what it was like, you disgusting, vile person.

    So I suppose you don't have to deal with this bullshit, and that's a perfectly fine way to go. Personally, I find myself resenting it more every year. The Byzantine, backward, corrupt, inefficient, entrenched Thai bureaucracy does my head in.
    Mate,

    I find you to be one real strange sort of coont who makes problems for himself and basically talks up shit for the sake of talking up shit. Read the rubbish you wrote up top as a prime example of your silliness all of which is self inflicted.

    Now if I'm smart enough to get myself a Retirement Visa then supposedly a guy who has lived here as long as you should be able to work out that having a Retirement Visa is a shit load more easier to get and maintain than a fuking Marriage Visa.

    Only once a year do ya need to drag ya sorry arse down to Immi for renewal and they do it there and then.

    But no,

    You ya silly coont continue on with a fookin Marriage Visa and then cry a river regards the requirements to renew it. ???

    And please don't tell me ya can't afford to maintain 800 K in ya Bank for 3 months. ?????

    Please don't tell me that.

    Bottom line is this, pack ya sad arse up and fuk off to Cambo.

    Ya seem to love it so much but you continue on here crying like a little bitch.

    Cambo is a fuking toilet .

    Enjoy the shit.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    I was last in Cambo 18 years ago. Things may have changed but not my spec at all. Must admit the happy pizza was a plus and beer cheaper and better but never had the slightest desire to go live there. I had fun but it was a holiday. And as we all know living somewhere and having a holiday are 2 different things.

    Know 2 farangs from Roiet who went to live there because of cost. Both were back in a year. Couldn't stand it. I figure must have been pretty awful to opt to return to Roiet from Cambo.

    Agree with Terry re immigration/visa in Thailand. 45 minutes a year in the immigration office to extend my long stay visa is no bother for me. Been doing it for near 30 years so it's become the norm maybe why not irritation for me.

    Cost of living in Thailand is higher but not enough to make it a consideration to move for me.

    As far as the people here, I find them to be fine. Get on well with most all but mind, I live in a small village. The only farang left. Had a Yerman but he fucked off. Good riddance. A complete wanker he was.

    Too each his own so for those who choose to go to Cambodia to live, good luck and enjoy.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Well, my current marriage visa expires eo Sept- and that's it. So if I stay on, it's a retirement visa or jiggery pokery (made a fair bit easier by the fact I have two passports). Yes, I'm aware that a retirement visa is easier than a marriage visa- but why? Another Thai'ism I suppose.

    Kinda tied here in Pattaya for the mo anyway, because I'm living solo in this big pad while I get a sale or decent rental sorted. Life is good actually. It's nice to be back after those years in the boonies, and there is no great hurry. I certainly cannot fault day to day life here, or in Isaan- my gripes have nothing to do with that. Met some really great people too.

    Anyway, thinking of giving Cambo a go after that, Kampot seems top of my list at the moment- but I've never actually been there. Siem Reap is a nice place, but have cooled on the idea- too busy, too many tourists, baking hot for much of the year. PP- I enjoyed visiting, but not my first choice to live in a big city. Snooky- well I hear it's becoming more and more a Chinese gambling destination, but no harm in checking it out for a while.

    Anyhow, what's to lose? It's not like I would ever make the same mistake I made here, and lay down serious assets there. So if I end up back in Thailand, or wherever, so what? Foot loose and fancy free lads and ladies- can you smell the napalm in the morning?

    ^^Best of luck, Sabang. Listen to your gut.

    I spent a month touring all of Cambodia back in 2008. I'm sure it's changed a lot since then. One thing I remember is how kind the people were. They seemed to be very appreciative of whatever money they got and would give the shirt off of their back to strangers. I met a few Cambodian friends I still keep in touch with on fb. I'd like to go back and see how much it's changed.

    Just like when I went to Phuket recently, the last time I was there was ll years ago. It has changed a lot, so built up and so many tourists and rip-offs.

    Not as easy as before to get a long term visa and there is no 1 year visa on arrival, u get a 30 days ordinary visa an extend BUT if u go the business visa u now need be working and have an employer and wp. They have a 6 month EG visa ( looking for work) but cant be extended. No marriage extension, no in school extension. They have a current retirement extension but some says its 55, some say 60, some 65, for now no $$ required, depends on the travel agent u use to get it.

    It is MORE expensive for everything BUT cigs and alcohol;
    gas, electricity, cokes, drinking water, cooking gas, cars, meats, motorcycles, Cars, drivers license , everything.
    Yea you can eat out cheap BUT not cheaper than Thailand, weed is rag weed ( and no, u cant buy it at any market) If u see good weed it cam down from Laos.
    Only 3 airports
    Being taking over by Chinese
    Medical sucks compared to Thailand, level of english outside tourist areas non existent. Poor choice of accommodations and way overpriced for anything nice.
    They just passed a law Farangs can no longer by a used motorcycle !!!
    Wanna get married? cant f ur over 50, and f ur under, need show u make $2,500/month
    More drug overdoses of young people than here in Thailand

    PLUS:
    yes the people are friendly, BUT so are 95% of the thai's

    lived there a year, (2008/09) travel frequently there ( was last there in May 2017) , even own land and a house in Khmer gf's name there, but would never move back

    Better golf courses. Pattaya expats are golfers not mongers. Just ask them.
