Making the move

Posted by Andaman Sam on May 10th, 2013 filed in Living here, Property

Tens of thousands of people visit Phuket each year and plenty decide to stay. They fall in love with the beaches and the lifestyle and opt for a life just like it. If you are one of the many that would like to make the big move to Phuket there is much to know beforehand, as life isn’t always easy here.

The first thing to look into before making the move here are visas, as a tourist visa will only go so far. Have a look at this One Stop guide to visas for more in depth information on types of visas and how to go about getting one so that you can legally live here. Next thing to research is the cost of living. Yes, Phuket is quite cheap compared to most western countries, but have a look at this guide to see just how far you can stretch your money.

There is no shortage of property available in Phuket, be it a small rental house, a luxurious villa rental or a condominium. There are all sorts of great options here, including buying your own property. The laws on owning property in Thailand are quite strict so be sure to do all of the research before getting into a sticky situation. This One Stop guide is a good starting point.

The last thing to remember is that even though you move here you will never be a local, but you do want to do everything you can to try to blend in and keep a low profile. You will want to have some grasp of the Thai language and know about the customs and culture, including etiquette, which you can read more about here.
