Expat Woman's Guide to Living in Thailand
 

 

The Expat Woman's Guide to Living in Thailand is a guide book and directory addressing the concerns that foreign women have when moving to and living in Thailand. Letís face it, most websites and guidebooks for expats in Thailand are for men since there are far fewer women in residence. We have different needs than do male expats and this comprehensive e-book is filled with useful, up to date information as well as entertaining recollections of my own life living and working in the Land of Smiles.

Introduction

More than enough travel guides and websites about Thailand give fantastic advice on hotels, sightseeing, nightlife and restaurants. If youíve already read such guides, you already know what kinds of clothes you should bring and that the currency is in Baht. But for someone who intends to live in Thailand, there are many questions, concerns and needs not addressed in the travel guides. Many expat guides also cater to foreign men who come to Thailand, emphasizing heavily on topics that are of no relevance to foreign women.

From what to expect in an apartment to grocery stores that carry real cheese and chocolate, this guide contains helpful up‐to‐date resources, tips and web links especially tailored for a woman expecting to stay in Thailand for an extended time. This guide is gender friendly, though; there is no male bashing. As a matter of fact, the guys will also find the topics addressed in this guidebook to be of great help, especially the dads. In addition, Iíve included stories and anecdotes of my own experience and the issues I faced living and working in Thailand.

Women of all ages come to live in Thailand. From young women just out of college to seniors who retire or volunteer, you will encounter many of us. While Thailand still has a reputation for being a ďmanís paradiseĒ and indeed you will see that you are far, far outnumbered by western men, the number of expat women living in Thailand has been on the increase over the last 5‐7 years. You will not feel alone here!

Note about the author:

Thailand holds an element of exotic mystery with a culture and lifestyle vastly different from the West -- precisely the reasons I chose to live in Bangkok.

In March 2001 I quit my well-paying job in Silicon Valley after taking a TESOL course in San Francisco so I could teach English. I had a one-way ticket to Bangkok and an awaiting job interview with a local private school - no guarantees about anything upon arrival.

I got the job at a private bilingual school on the outskirts of Bangkok and an American colleague of mine took me under her wing and showed me the buses into the city, where to shop for groceries and that it was OK to eat the steamed chicken hanging by their necks in the food stalls at the outdoor market. Iím also adventurous and exploratory by nature, so I traveled extensively around Bangkok and all the rest of Thailand for that matter.

After a few years there, I met a wonderful Thai man nicknamed Golf. We had a whirlwind courtship and got married in a relatively short time. A year later our son Aidan came into the world and he was born in an International Bangkok hospital.

During my stay in Bangkok, my average days were extraordinary: wading in knee deep monsoon floods to get to work to feeding an elephant that came onto on the school campus. Every day was a day to remember and Iím happy to share some of those memories.
