  1. I’m researching my move to Thailand and trying to make as many contacts as possible. I’ll be moving on a shoestring and am hoping to find work once I arrive. I have many skills in Construction, Management, eLearning Development, and speak fluent English. I have computer and internet skills. I want to move mainly because I crave adventure and am fed up living in Los Angeles. I also think Thai women are among the most beautiful in the world. I’m a hopeless romantic still hoping. 🙂 I’d greatly appreciate any help or advice you may have.

    Thanx Much

  2. Thank you very much for all of the useful information about family living in Chiang Mai. My wife and I will be arriving in Thailand on the 12th of July, and we are bringing our 4-year-old son and our 6-year-old daughter–we too are in the process of selling most of our possessions. We currently live in Washington State where my wife is in her second year teaching middle school English, and I’m a stay-at-home dad. Presently, we don’t have a job lined up, but we have an eye on possibly settling down for a while in Chiang Mai. I think we are making the move for many of the same reasons as your family.

    As with any major move, especially with little ones in mind, I’m becoming increasingly nervous about a few things. I’m hoping that maybe you can help put to rest some of my fears. My two biggest concerns at this point are: my children’s education and finding a good job. At least initially, we won’t be able to pay as much as you are for your child’s education, so what are the other options? How much are they? How do they compare with public education here in the states? Do some of the state/private schools offer English as their primary language? Now, on to my second concern, my wife has a BS in English and a Master’s in Education, she will have taught one year of conversational English in China and two years of English in the U.S., how quickly will she be able to find a job that pays her at least 40,000bht/mo? She would prefer to teach in her subject area at an international school, but we are aware that this might not happen initially. I have a BS in Digital Technology and am not opposed to working either, but I’d prefer to stay at home with the kids most of the time.

    Thank you very much for taking the time out of your day to answer some of my questions.

    1. Yasha,
      Good to hear from you, and your plans sound exciting! Just follow up with us at gotpassport(at) gmail(dot) com, and let’s continue this conversation.

      Cheers,
      J.

    2. Hi Yasha,
      I’ll respond here as we haven’t received an email from you. As for children’s education, there are roughly 5-6 international schools, and they are all online. Google “International School Chiang Mai” and you’ll find a list of the major international schools here. Also check out Payaden school http://www.panyaden.ac.th/ which has a Buddhist/green approach, but has English and Thai curricula.
      As for teaching jobs, you can approach Thai schools as often they need an English teacher, but your best bet for higher paying jobs might be at the international schools themselves. Internet infrastructure is fairly good, so for you, working contract jobs online is possible.

      Let us know if you have more questions. We’re glad to see a family relocating here to Chiang Mai!

  3. BTW… I made a friend request via FB… but (FYI) it didn’t give an option for message or introduction… you made a comment on a message thread I was having with Almost Fearless…

  4. Good Morning M, A, J –

    Just read about All y’all (no, I’m not Texan, but a favorite Georgian friend of mine told me “All y’all” is plural for “y’all” & I’ve always loved it!) and wanted to say “Hey”. Love what you’re doing!!

    Cheers,
    Suzi
