My husband and I are contemplating a move to Bangkok. We have 2 small children (age 4 and 1). We would like to live near the ISB, but we cannot find any information on house costs? We are looking for around 300 m sq and 4 bedrooms. Also, we are coming from Florida, are there any other Floridians living in Bangkok? How easy is it to develop a network of friends? Can anyone recommend any reading material regarding cost of living, traveling around and living in Thailand.

We lived in Thailand several years ago. We lived in a house in Natakorn Park in Nichada where the International School is located. We found it very easy to live there and our daughter loved being so near the school, especially for activites. It is quite easy to make friends as there are several organizations you can join or do volunteer work at the school. Good luck to you. I am sure you will love it! The Australian-New Zealand Women's Group publishes a very good quide to living called The Bangkok Guide. You can contact them through the Australian Embassy, 37 Sathon Tai Road, Bangkok 10120. Nichada has condos, townhouses, villas, and individual houses with gardens and in -ground pools. There is also a club with a large pool and a restaurant and meeting room. There are many amenities right inside-beauty salon, dry cleaners, bank kiosk, pharmacy, vet, grocery store, etc.

Check out the site www.dreambuilderstv.com/bangkok/index.htm
It has information on how to find an apartment, and lists several apartment email and website addresses. The site also offers a Bangkok Expat's Handbook that provides details on cost of living, health care, and a listing of expat clubs and organizations. Also available is a bus map of Bangkok

Dear Gator,
Seems like we used to be neighbors a while back. I used to live in Orlando while I was going to UCF. Sorry I`m not a gator. I`m sorry that I can not help you in regards your living situation, but I might be able to help you with adequate health insurance.

Let me first introduce myself. My name is Kai Poepplau and I myself have been an expatriate for the last 6 years. I`m german but have lived in the US since 1996 and just recently moved to Shanghai. Because of my background and my current situation I fully understand the importance of adequate health insurance and financial services for people living overseas. Therefore I`m aware of how important this issue is for everybody who considers taking an assignment overseas. I personally work for GBG/Tiecare international, a company that provides insurance and financial services exclusively for expatriates. I know that you have been approached before and that it all sounds the same, but it is no coincidence that we have been in the business for more than 2 decades and that we can proudly say that we have a 60% market share of all US schools overseas and thousands of corporate clients worldwide. In Shanghai for example we provide our service to the staff of the Shanghai American School, Concordia School, Changning International School, Yew Chung International School, Hewitt associates, GE china, just to name a few. We believe that in order to attract qualified employees an employer must be able to provide excellent coverage and benefits at a competitive price. Or if the company does not provide coverage you should be at least aware of what options are out there. Since we are the only company that has local offices worldwide, even in Thailand, we are able to claim that we have more experience than anybody else and that our customer service is only a call away. If you would like some further information in regards of what we do, who we are, and what our coverage consists of please let me know so I can provide you with the appropriate material. Since comparison should be in your interest I hope to get the chance to compare our products and services with your existing coverage. I`m looking forward to hear from you, until then my best regards.

Sincerely Yours

Kai Poepplau
