Expat Experience: Stuart Land, Chiang Mai

Hi. I’m Stuart Land, a novelist, screenwriter, and sculptor.

Where, when and why did you move abroad?

I moved to Thailand in 1999 after visiting several other countries and decided to stay here because it was centrally located in Asia, living conditions were good, people were friendly, prices were low, and the food was great. I lived a hectic lifestyle in LA working in the movie business, and felt a slower pace would suit me.

What challenges did you face during the move?

My challenges were low because I was used to living with people of different races and cultures. However, when I first moved here, graft was extremely high and I got hit up for money from officials and police every time I left my house. That has since stopped at that level.

How did you find somewhere to live?

At first, I stayed in hotels because they were so inexpensive, then went through a rental agent and found my perfect place...
