Hi all, I’m starting a new thread, as I need some valuable testimonies from long-time expats as you guys . I’ve been offered a position in Phuket, Thailand. I really love this country. It is so cheap, warm, culturally rich, and paradisiac that I have the feeling I cannot let this chance slip away… What do you guys think about living in Phuket? Any expats there that can provide a valuable feedback? I’ve already lived for a while in Bangkok, but this city is literally too much for me. I enjoyed it the time I stayed, but I guess a more “chilled out” place will be a better match for me. I’m looking for something less crazy, where I can enjoy a very good standard of living with my GF in one of the most beautiful part of this country. Any recommendations of expats already settled there? What is for you the best part of the island to stay? Is the cost of living comparable to Bangkok’s? Is it easy to get around the island, or should I consider buying a motorbike/scooter? What are the weekend activities that you would recommend? I enjoyed my time in Phuket when I went there for vacation, but I have to admit my knowledge about it is quite limited. I have a full bunch of questions, but I guess it’s better to wait for your feedback. Thank you in advance for any help you will provide folks!
