    Would you stay in Thailand if you won the lottery?

    Would you stay in Thailand if you won the lottery? I don't mean a measly little million bucks where the interest is just comfortable survival money - I mean big-time like 10 Million+.

    The timeworn classic Smegism is that Thailand is a beggar's paradise for misfits who would be elsewhere if they weren't 'trapped' and the classic Thaiophile riposte is that there is nowhere they would rather be.

    So - if you won the big one would you stay or would you go?

    I am only a tourist part-time Thaiophile. I would buy a decent piece of beach-front land somewhere in Ozzy not too far from the city and the fun. Thailand will always be my favourite place to visit for a holiday though.

    I'd build a place in Bangkok and a place on one of the islands on the beach.

    The place on the beach would be more of a Man with the Golden Gun affair, access by sea plane, great beach, death ray etc..

    And the place in Bangkok would be set up for mad parties round the pool. Swim up bar, pool table, hot tubs with 3D flat screens and ps3's, hot bitches in the pool havin water fights etc..

    Hope I win.

    I'd go and live in Bournemouth and post constantly on websites proclaiming how good it was. I'd buy loads of consumer trinkets and then spend a fair amount of time letting everybody know about said trinkets in the hope that might percive me as being "normal".

    Nah, been there, done that. Thailand has no fascination for me anymore. I'd go to some war sites I've been studying.

    Anyone who has met my wife and children already know I have won the lottery.

    Got great understanding friends as well, especially one bloke on this forum (he knows who he is) and what else do I need.

    If I won buckets of money I may well take the family to Pattaya for a weeks holiday.

    I'd stay in Thailand and buy a politician or two, maybe a police station, and some judges.

    Stay in Thailand? You bet.

    I'd buy one of those penthouse condos, and a Bell Jet Ranger.

    Me too! And there are so many people that just want to give me money for no reason. I feel so lucky.

    I think that a move would be in order just because i would hate to spend my hard earned winnings on land that i could never own.
