» 6 month visa
Aug 26, 2015 - 11:34 PM - by pattayardm
What's the easiest way to get a visa to stay 6 months in Thailand these days ?

This is for a 29 year old American who will fly in from Vietnam on a 2 month tourist visa which he later intends to get renewed for a further 1 month at a Thai immigration office.

What about the extra 3 months he likes to stay ? It used to be, and I'm going back a few years now, that one could hop across the border to, say, Laos or Malaysia for a few days and get another 2 month tourist... [Read More]

» Visa Long Long Overstay
Aug 26, 2015 - 2:05 PM - by Denatu
Its an old chesnut asked many times but I'm looking for up to date info. I have overstayed my visa by 10 years or more. I plan on turning myself in and returning to UK. I plan going the court route as opposed to paying the 20k at immigration. The issue is one of timing. If I have a ticket and turn myself in too late I may miss the flight. If I give myself ample time (eg 1 week) then I spend longer in IDC which is clearly undesirable. And if I wait till court deportation order to get ticket then... [Read More]

» Lawn care and watering
Aug 26, 2015 - 7:51 AM - by gerry53
I know there are old posts about this but I want to try to get some new ideas.

I have Japanese grass (normal) in my front yard and Malaysian grass in the back yard. Before both were put down I put the recommended black "soil" down.
This black soil is very light and floats away very easily. I visited one guy who packages this dirt for various nurseries and it appears he makes it from coconut husks that have been burned - thus black and lightweight. Not like the... [Read More]

» Most efficient house to keep cool?
Aug 23, 2015 - 7:05 AM - by gerry53
After viewing many homes in Isaan I would like any constructive opinions on what design of house keeps coolest and stays coolest.

Many homes are built on stilts and are very traditional for the area. When it is +40C you have the floor exposed to that temperature.

I have found 2 storey homes to heat up the most especially on the upper floor making air conditioning a must for myself. I realize the upper floor gets more breeze but when it is near +40C more breeze... [Read More]

» Marriage Visa renewal
Aug 20, 2015 - 8:07 AM - by Perota
It is almost one year. Last year it wasn't so bad, a bit of a problem because they needed a certified copy of the marriage certificate. We were married abroad, in Hong Kong, and the original certificate should be certified by the local embassy. Hong Kong doesn't have a embassy because it is now part of China and Chinese embassy couldn't help us because we were not Chinese citizen. Finally my own embassy accepted to certified the marriage and that solved the problem.

Now it's time... [Read More]

Aug 18, 2015 - 3:31 AM - by 1960apache
Hello all, I have decided to build a house in Thailand, I have a Thai wife and our Daughter. I have been looking near Klong Hat, Sa Kaeo, Saraburi. I am being told 70,000-100,000 baht per Rai and since ASEAN is coming, the whole World is going to move to Thailand etc. so now land is worth a fortune. My wifes good and bad family live in that area but I don't want to be too close to them. I would really like 5-10 Rai with mostly trees and green, actually I am open to anywhere in Thailand that...

» Udon Thani - Modern stilt house.
Aug 15, 2015 - 6:24 PM - by Nevo
Hi. So I've been living in Thailand for years and have a Thai partner of fifteen years and have decided to bite the bullet and build. I've been reading this forum as a guest for years too, and it's been really helpful for advice and encouragement.
The land is old family now belonging to partner. It's situated in a tiny village on the country road to the famous Wat Kam Chanot near Ban Dung and about an hour north east of Udon Thani.
The plot is about 3 rai, was overgrown with old... [Read More]
