Some challenges with living in Thailand (ความท้าทายบางอย่างกับการใช้ชีวิตในประเทศไทย)

Although I wouldn’t trade living in Thailand for anything, it’s not always a bed of roses. Here are a few of the challenges I’ve been dealing with recently which you might find difficult to understand.

It really is quite odd to see that a retired foreigner living in Thailand who should be able to show that he has at least 65k baht per month income (4x higher than the average Thai wage) can’t be considered for finance even when they offer to put 1/4 down on the purchase. In the next video, I actually put this situation to the test and see if I can finance a second-hand motorcycle, so keep an eye out for that.
