Troopie, if you are still around, would you make a local call for me? It is to my lady friend in Cha Am and I have not been able to get through from here in Mexico. Gracias,Roberto

Glad to know someone is willing to help. I'm planning on retirement in HH in Jan 2010 and am gathering info. I have contacted others on the HHAD blogsite and most of what I read there is negative and most tell me not to come on a limited retirement pension. What is your take?. Why did you choose Thailand over all the other potential retirement havens of the world? (like Panama or Cyprus) I spent 3 weeks in LOS in Ap.2003 and LOVED the feeling I got there much of it I suspect was party mood from Songkran. Of course I know being a tourist is not the same as living there. But of all the places in the world I've been, only Thailand and Australia are places I would want to live in. Oz is too expensive and I don't "qualify" with my assets, I love the food there, the temples, the natural beauty, scuba diving and the cost of living seems affordable. But others say I won't be happy there because of the questions I ask.
Perhaps Pattaya, Jomtien or Chiang Mai would be cheaper. What do YOU think? The naysayers in the tight "ingroup" blog community may be threatened by an American who is not wealthy. But judging from the number of complaints about traffic, parking, immigration authorities, thefts etc. they don't sound all that happy.
Give me a reason to hope for a better future outside Los Angeles earthquakes, hillside firestorms, mudslides.roadway gridlock, high rent, food and gas prices, congestion, gang murders and burglaries. Other than that it is a great place to live, at least the weather is good, so good in fact that Wink it doesn't rain enough to insure water supplies
Thanks so much for your input

Hi there.
I am an aussie looking at retiring in l.o.s. in 2010,i was keen on relocating to the Jomtien area,as i had not been back there for some years,and heard it was vastly improved? how disapointed i was.visited the area in feb 09,and was not impressed at all,soys very untidy,rentals on hand very ordinary,judging by net photos from Australia the place was going ahead big time?? so yes i was not interested.
Now Hua Hin appeals to us,however same nice photos etc etc.
I plan on taking a visit to check out the town,poss early 2010.
Can any kind person advise me,if Hua Hin is better than Jomtien.
Many thanks.
Kevin. Sydney.Australia
