Godfree Robertsabout this book: I arrived in Thailand flat broke – except for my $1200/mo. pension – and clueless.
I spent 18 months figuring out basic stuff. How much should I spend on rent? What foods to eat? How to get the right visa with the least hassle? How could I legally make a supplemental income so I could travel?
Then there was the language and the intricate culture. The whole way of life that Thais expect everyone to conform to (it's based around having as much fun as possible, which takes getting used to).
And what about a sustainable budget? What did Internet connection cost? Could I watch my favourite TV programs? In other words, I had to discover all the basic things that we learn as we grow up in our own culture. It was interesting, of course, but also an unnecessary hassle. I wasted time and energy on bureaucratic tasks, lost access to my bank account, couldn't call toll-free foreign numbers, and so on.
How to Retire in Thailand is all about that stuff. It's designed to save you months of time and thousands of dollars while enhancing your enjoyment of and appreciation for Thai culture and lifestyle.
