Hi Sarah

Reading those replies i would be having second thoughts about coming over to Thailand. I moved to Bangkok 5 months ago from the UK and have not found it so difficult, so i will share my thoughts with you too...

I live on Thong Lor in the sukhumvit area. It is an excellent location close to the BTS and has lots of bars and restaurants. Sukhumvit has many expats, western and japanese. Some of the low number sois (roads) have bars which are generally filled with tourists and men who want to hang around gogo type bars - not the best place to live. As for the comments left about your partner, i think it's a little unfair. Thai women are not irrisistable to the male sex, and i am sure you have nothing to worry about. I live here with my boyfriend and i don't give it a second thought.

As for healthcare, i go to bumrungrad hospital (there is no GP, everything is dealt with at hospital). The hospital is fantastic, clean, english speaking staff, and very efficient. My boyfriend fractured his toe and we were in, had xrays and saw 2 doctors within the hour. Here is the website if you want to take a look...

There are a few english speaking companies here, i came out here with a job and resigned after three months as it wasnt working out. To be honest finding a new job isn't proving easy, but i am looking for a merchandising position and it may be easier for your sector.

Anything you want to ask just email x
