The best place to live in Bangkok for teachers

Onnud has got the lot!

In the past, all we had was a Tesco, Big C and the beer garden. It was pretty barren. But it's distance from the "city center" and subsequent lower rents, while still having access to the BTS, has made it a popular choice for expats.


I'm very interesting. Please message me!

When language help and correction isn't always appreciated.

A large number of Thai people seem to have a complete inability to be corrected. The advice of "Here's how to say that right" always seems to be interpreted as "you're wrong".


Is your rent too high?

Do the maths and work it out yourself

Maybe you're being overcharged for your property rental and you can now prevent it from happening again in the future.......or maybe you have an absolute steal of a deal.


Avoiding real estate scammers in Bangkok

The challenge is knowing what kind of agent to look for

There is no licensing for real estate agents in Thailand. Saying you are an agent in any other country if you're not licensed is a criminal offence. In Thailand? Anyone can "claim" to be an agent. It doesn't mean they are.
