What do I need to know before moving to Ranong?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Ranong, they said...

"Ranong is a small town located in the south of the country, known for its hot springs, unspoiled natural beauty, and proximity to Myanmar. Before moving to Ranong, expats should be aware that English is not widely spoken, so learning some basic Thai phrases would be beneficial. The cost of living in Ranong is relatively low compared to other parts of Thailand, but expats should still budget carefully as imported goods can be expensive. The climate in Ranong is tropical, with a rainy season that lasts from May to November, so expats should be prepared for high humidity and frequent rain during this period. Healthcare facilities in Ranong are limited, so expats with serious medical conditions may need to travel to larger cities for treatment. Expats should also be aware that Ranong is a small town with a slower pace of life, which may be a significant change for those used to living in larger cities. Ranong is known for its seafood, so those who enjoy seafood will find a lot to love about the local cuisine. The town is also home to a large number of Burmese immigrants, which adds to the cultural diversity of the area. Expats should also be aware of the visa requirements for living in Thailand, which can be strict and require regular renewals. Finally, while Ranong is generally safe, expats should still take standard precautions to protect their personal safety and belongings," explained one expat living in Ranong, Thailand.
