    Kudos to ACN

    By DSuthikant, Created on: 18/04/2013, Last updated on: 18/04/2013

    » I read the news article: Anti-Corruption crusader leading for a better Thailand published on April 18 2013 with the delightful surprise that the Anti-Corruption Network (ACN) is funded by private-sector groups. I think it’s great because business is being affected by corruption more than any other...

    Do you speak English Khun Noy?

    By surapong, Created on: 26/07/2010, Last updated on: 07/01/2016

    » Ms Noy’s gonna need some English lessons in order to pass her tests to prove that her command of the language is good enough before being granted her visa. The number of Thai women from the Northeast marrying foreigners is rising every year. Over the past few months, almost 2,000 people have shown...

So many Thais see the Americans over in Thailand on vacatin spending money, and they think we are all big bosses, or independentantly wealthy. In general we are NOT. Some have cheap or minimal Military pensions. Most are still working. Most are divorced, have alimony, child support etc. American has tons of opportunities. If you are young and willing to work and and can communicate, this is one of the countries you can buy things and work your butt off. If you have a wealthy American partner, your material needs may be taken care of. Their are Thai communities here where ethnic or native Thais can get together. The local Wat Thai here in Escondido, north of San Diego Callifornia is a nice place. But day to day you WILL NOT be living as you do in Thailand. Is it better for you? Possibly.

I believe its the largest Thai concentration outside of Thailand. You're very right about how some Thais moving to the west and finding out it's not what they thought. For some it is what they thought if they married a partner with money. I actually know of a Chiang Mai girl that married a rich guy and moved to San Diego. She did well for herself in Thailand but that guy has yachts, exotic cars, mansions etc.

    Why do most farangs search for their wife from Pattaya?

    By Anonymous, Created on: 20/01/2008, Last updated on: 14/03/2010

    » I wonder so much as I follow this web for a few days. and I notice mostly they post about how bad of thai woman. I understand as when they scam by thai woman. but no body force them to that situations( i MEAN pattaya , bars or other place as similar as pattaya ) and found love there and got bad...

    • postreader commented : I have posted the following comment in "From a Thai woman to you---all Farangs" Since this subject is related to "From a Thai woman to you---all Farangs" I want readers in this subject have a chance to read it and reply as well. here it is. "I want to a comment to this subject based on my 25 years growing up in Thailand and more than 30 years living in USA. First of all I want to say that as a Thai I am not very proud when my friens at work in LA talk about how much fun they had with Bar girls or prostitutes during vacation in Thailand. But let's leave that to another post on the subject of Thai Goverment failure in suppression or elimination of prostitute in Thailand. The point I want to make is that a lot of of you (if not most) Farangs (Males) come to Thailnad for sex. So who esle you will meet other than prostitutes or bar girls. These are poor Thai Girls or Women who I beleive majority of them didn't choose this profession as their first choice. Their line of works don't last long, once they are old and grey (after 10 years max in business) they have no other means to make money. Here come lonely Farangs who in general make 10 or 100 times more money than Thai's. You are a piece of log floating in the open ocean. They are lost at sea. They would grab anything to keep them afloat. I am not trying to justify their actions. But you guys did it to your self Don't you think I would be sucked dry to the bone if I hooked up with a prostitute (Notice I use the term "Prostitute" not "American Girls" or "White girls" or "Mexican girls") on Sunset or Hollywood Boulervard in Los Angeles? Majority of Thai women are not money hungry as you Farangs think or experience. If you meet Thai women who are not Prostitutes I beleive most of you will have different point of view toward Thai women. Go to other places than Bars or brothels to meet majority of Thai women. But don't expect them to sleep with you the first time you meet. You have to work a lot harder to win their hearts. Some of them are a lot richer than you they don't need your money. Those who are a lot poorer than you they definitely need your support but not to the scale that you experienced with the prostitutes. I learned from over 30 years living in the western (Farang) culture, you get what you pay. Good Luck to you all lonely Farangspostreader " Posts: 4 Joined: Fri Jun 05, 2009 1:24 am
