    The situation is continually changing, but like many other cities, Pattaya has been severely affected by the coronavirus. With bars remaining closed and social distancing becoming a priority, Pattaya has become a place, at least in the short-term, which is unrecognisable to most. Everyone is encouraged to distance themselves and wear surgical facemasks to try and minimise the spread of […]

    Pattaya has undoubtedly changed its image in the last decade and can now genuinely claim to be a family-orientated resort. While this is a good on the one hand as we have undoubtedly seen an increase in the TOTAL number of tourist coming to the city, it seems to have impacted heavily on the numbers of western tourists. We often […]

    If you have been anywhere in Pattaya in the last two or three months, you will have noticed how quiet the roads are. Gone are the Chinese tour coaches along Beach Road and gone are the Chinese tourists flocking to Bali Hai Pier. Of course, some expats may welcome this change, living in a quieter city. Still, for business owners, […]

    If you have been with your Thai girlfriend for any length of time, there is a good chance that marriage has cropped up in the conversation on more than one occasion. Having a “village wedding” is one thing that often satisfies the Thai family as a dowry is usually paid, and the family receive gold or cash for their daughter. […]

    The TM30 and the TM28 reporting has caused uproar amongst foreigners in Thailand since it was first enforced fast year with foreigners being forced to report their whereabouts even if they just away from their home for 24-hours. It all changed (again) on January, although it went largely unnoticed and certainly unreported until now. Thankfully the requirement to fill in […]

    If you are an expat living in Thailand, you will, at some point, need a new UK Passport. It may be that your existing one is full or it is close to expiring.

    A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is something that we should all consider regardless of our age. It means that we allow a “trusted person” to take over our affairs if we are unable to do so, for example, if we were seriously ill or involved in an accident. For British expats living in Thailand on a Thai Retirement Visa, it […]

    Anybody either living in Pattaya or a frequent visitor will no doubt have read the endless stories about British expats leaving Thailand in their droves and heading for Vietnam. The popular forums have all published article stating the benefits of living in Vietnam over Thailand referring to the strength of the baht and more often than not, the issues connected […]

    Very few people would argue that the western tourist market has been badly hit in recent years with many looking alternative locations closer to home. Sadly, the same is true for western expats who have also decided to head home taking their Thai wives with them on UK Spouse Visas. Of course, this has left a massive void, and TAT is […]

    When you are in Thailand, you can extend your stay in the country for a limited period by attending Thai Immigration. However, depending on the officer in charge, this may be only for as little as seven days. It is also likely to receive greater unwarranted scrutiny. In many ways, you are better off doing a “visa run” to the […]
