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.


An ideal home

Some thoughts about renting in Thailand

Choosing a 'home' is a balance of positives (what you want) versus negatives (what you are prepared to put up with) Where you eventually decide to set up base camp in Thailand won't be the same as where your colleagues would choose.


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.

Finding peaceful, open spaces outside of Bangkok is easy enough, but tranquility within the central areas of the city is near to impossible, unless of course, you know where to look.


Bangkok's cheap apartments

Are budget studios a good option?

Not only is Bangkok renowned for having the cheapest taxi fares on the planet, but it's perhaps also one of the least expensive capitals in the world for renting centrally located accommodation. So just how much bang do you get for your Baht in 2014?
