    Too much rain. I like the place a lot. But June till October at least you have heavy rains. Many of the resorts shut down. May be the rainiest place in Thailand. Without that yes. But to retire.

    Not full time, I think I'd get bored being stuck on an island. Would be nice to spend a few months there a year.

    Lived there for nearly two years. When I first went there it was the only place I wanted to be.
    But after a while it seems to get very small and same same if that makes sense.
    If your are considering living there, my advice would be to rent for a year or so before committing financially.
    Beautiful place though.

    ^I can imagine getting some sort of cabin fever with only that limited space to roam in and needing a ferry to go anywhere else.

    I think he's been there for 14 years. https://iamkohchang.com/

    I enjoyed the cloud and rain there last week. It was a nice break from the baking sun in Bangkok.

    I wouldn't live there as there's no university, I need to live within close proximity to a Uni , renting cheap bed sit.
    More buck for your money.

    I lived there for 7 years. It was great. Except for all the rain and power outages.
