Let’s start with the obvious: the weather. If you live in a country like the UK, where the average day is ‘wet and windy’, you are likely always dreaming of what life might be like in a country that enjoys a tropical climate all-year round. One thing is for certain, by moving to Thailand you can enjoy a warmer climate, sun-filled days, and the occasional exciting monsoon for when you are missing home!
It might sound like we are bullying the UK in this article, but let’s be honest: the country isn’t renowned for its delicious cuisine. Thailand on the other hand is home to some of the finest foods in the world. Moving to Thailand, you can enjoy a delicious and healthy diet and at a fraction of the cost.
Certainly, if you were to move to London you could enjoy a wide and varied cuisine, but can you imagine being able to nip out and buy a tasty bowl of noodle soup for £1.00?! You can do exactly that in Thailand!
It’s no secret that property prices in Thailand are incredible when compared to most Western countries. In fact, for roughly half the average price of property in England, you can buy yourself a beautiful condo in Bangkok! You can check out houses for sale from DD Property for some more inspiration.
It’s not just food and property that is cheap in Thailand, but the overall cost of living is comparatively low. In fact, some expats are living comfortably on as little as $600 USD a month! It’s easy to live well on less in Thailand, but there is certainly plenty of opportunity to live a life of luxury on the sort of monthly budget that most people in the West would need to simply survive.
While the UK has some amazing beaches (with Cornwall having some of the best rated in the world), the weather doesn’t always permit an impulsive beach day. In Thailand however, it is excellent beach weather practically all year round. And the best part is that Thailand is home to some of the finest tropical beaches you can imagine; that screen saver you have on your computer at home? In Thailand that is a daily reality!
For some people, the prospect of moving overseas can be terrifying. Yes, there will undoubtedly be a culture shock when you move away from the familiar, however, if you are desperate for a change of pace, moving to a beautiful country like Thailand might just be the best thing you’ve ever done!
