Ok, ok – I know its sleeze central, but it does have parts which are not like this, its close to Bangkok, lots of housing opportunities, big ex-pat population – its cheap.
Well, I would welcome your advice from anyone who has stayed there for a long time.
I would like to know about meeting people, places to stay (near ex-pats would be good), pubs, places to eat, thai language school, internet – who is the best internet provider? I hate the slowness off all the places I have stayed around Thailand so far. I think the only way to go is to get my own private connection which means renting a place for 6 months or so. I imagine the contract is for a year, so how easy is it to move to a new address once I have signed up for a year – I get bored pretty quickly.
