An Expat Talks about Living in Bangkok, Thailand

Submitted by johnlander

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Bangkok

Describe how you "dreamed" expat life would be before you moved overseas. Please provide as much detail as possible.

Cheaper and easier

How has your expat experience met the expectations you dreamed about before you moved abroad?

Affordable enough, but certain things more expensive than US or Japan! (wine, furniture, cable TV...)

How has your expat experience NOT met the expectations you dreamed about before you moved abroad?

Visiting Thailand for a month or so is "fun"- living here is a "hassle" (visas, banking, maintenance issues, drunk slob fellow expats...)
