Basic Budget to Survive in Pattaya

by john
(Thailand / UK)

Paradise Pattaya

Paradise Pattaya

What would be the basic cost of surviving by the month in the surrounding area of Pattaya be with a no sex drugs rock and roll lifestyle 2 bed condo with land line and a motorbike for transport.


Answer:

Right now it's really good cost wise since tourism is really down. Not good for the Thais or people who have businesses geared towards tourism, but very good for you if you have some money and want to spend some time in Thailand / Pattaya.

I have heard of Landlords in Jomtien who cut the rent in half. 50% off (so that they have at least some money come in).

A Motorbike by the month (fully automatic) should cost you around 3,000 Baht plus gasoline.

Phone land line (Depends on if a line already exists or if you have to bring one in).

You may want to look for a place that already has a land line. Usually it's somewhere around 4,000-5,000 Baht to bring in a new line with TOT.

If you use it for the internet you may be able to get wireless for 400-700 Baht a month (mama wifi).

Internet access with a land line is around 1,000 baht a month.

How much you need for food depends on what and where you eat. A meal at a Thai food stall is about 30 Baht.

Depending on how long you stay you will also have to figure in the "visa run" cost.


Retirement In Pattaya With Sunsets




Also see how to live at a low cost in Pattaya and how you can even retire.

What I would do is rent a hotel for a few days in Pattaya and then go hunting for a condo.

Talk to John. A Scottish guy who has 100 condos in Jomtien (if that is a location you would consider) You can email him at the bottom of this page. A really good place to look for places to rent is in Carrefour on Pattaya Klang. They have a community board.
I looked yesterday and it seems that there are some really nice inexpensive places to rent.

There is no need to book a hotel right now. Vacancies everywhere, but if you want to book for a few days in advance you can go here.

With this info I believe you will be able to figure your cost of living in Pattaya.

Good luck, and let me know if you need anything else.

Pattaya Immigration Office Loacation

by Jerry

Pattaya Immigration Office

Pattaya Immigration Office

Where in Pattaya is the Immigration Office?

I will be staying in Pattaya for 3 months and I have a tourist visa for 60 days and after 60 days I understand I need to extend my visa at the local Immigration office in Pattaya. I will be in Pattaya this July - September 2009. I was looking online but couldn't find an address for the immigration in Pattaya. Hopefully I won't have to go to Bangkok or someplace else since I want to spend 3 months in Pattaya.

I appreciate your help.



***Paradise Pattaya***
The Immigration office in Pattaya is in Jomtien Soi 5. Soi haa.

I uploaded a picture of the Immigration office for you. If you need to find anything in Pattaya you can also go to my "Pattaya Site Search" page and use the search engine on that page.

Here is a Pattaya Map.

If you go down Jomtien Beach Road coming from Pattaya...Soi 5 will be on your left hand side.

If you don't find what you are looking for you can always ask here again of course.

Hotel or Apartment in Pattaya

by Bernard
(soon Pattaya again)

Hi I am going to Pattaya / Jomtien the second time this year. The first time I was in Pattaya I stayed in a hotel and this time i would like to stay in a condo. If anybody knows a nice condo or a good rental company in Jomtien I would appreciate if you could tell me where and how I can get in touch with them. I believe a condo is also better than some hotels because they do not care if you bring someone home (guest friendly).
Thank you

Songkran in Pattaya Videos - Song

by John
(Unites States)

Songkran in Pattaya

Songkran in Pattaya

I have a question concerning two of the Songkran in Pattaya videos you have posted on YouTube and your Site here.

Apparently, the song used in these videos is Calor by Perlas.

I have not been able to find the particular version of this song you use in your videos.

Would you mind sending me a copy of this song or send me a link to a website where I can obtain a copy of this version of the song ?

Thank you.


***Answer***

John I posted your question about the song of my videos here. Maybe a reader recognizes the song and will leave a comment.

I bought the Music CD at Walking Street because of the Pattaya Pattaya song. This song happened to be on the CD but no title or anything.


Many people have asked for the name of the song in the comment section of Youtube and I can never tell them what it is.

maybe we will find out here.

Thanks

Visa Requirement for Thailand

by Abu
(Trinidad)

I plan to visit Thailand on vacation for five days on a tour with Smartours and would like to know if I would need a visa and where can I apply for one from Trinidad.
Regards, Abu




***Answer***

Abu,

Where you apply for the visa is not as important as what Passport you carry or what nationality you are.


12/15/2008 Thai Immigration announced visa regulation change. This new regulation is regarding overland entries.

Foreigners entering Thailand without a visa via overland border checkpoints from Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia and Myanmar will only be granted 15 days on arrival.

The exception to the new visa regulation are Malaysian passport holders who will continue to receive 30 days without obtaining a visa prior to entering the Kingdom of Thailand.

Visa holders to Thailand visiting Thailand via overland border checkpoints will not be affected and will continue receiving 60 or 90 days depending on the visa.

Check here to find out if your country is on the visa exempt list.


You can also visit the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdon of Thailand here.

If your country is on this list you will be granted a visa exemption when you arrive.

I hope this helps.

Have fun in Thailand.

Buying a Motorbike in Pattaya

by Paul
(Pattaya)

Buying A Motorbike in Pattaya

Buying A Motorbike in Pattaya

Any idea where in Pattaya I can buy a used Motorbike?

I am going to stay for 6 months in Pattaya and I am thinking that buying a used motorbike would be most economic for me.

If I pay 3000 Baht a month for a motorbike 3x6=18000 I thought I might just as well buy one and sell it when I leave Pattaya.

Any thoughts? Recommendations?

Thank you

Paul



***Answer***

Paul,

There are community boards in "Carrefour" on Pattaya Klang and "Friendship Supermarket" on Pattaya Tai.

Check the ads there. Sometimes I see Motorbikes for sale. You will find ads there from job offers to real estate, and motorbikes.

If you are looking for for a scooter/motorbike type you may also try the Honda Mityon places in Pattaya.

The best Mityon Honda place that sells 2nd hand, has a great selection, and fair prices, is located on Sukhumvit Rd. and Chaiyapruek Rd.

Chaiyapruek is the one on Jomtien Beach Road by the police station up there. Go up to Sukhumvit Road and it's on your right hand side.

You can buy very nice used scooters there. Full and semi automatic. I bought one there that which was 1 year old, 10,000 KM, Nuovo, 1 year insurance, looked brand spanking new, and I paid 25,000 Baht including the insurance.

Take Care

We 2 Farangs wont to start a shop for sale second hand things

by Rocky
(Chiang Rai and Pattaya)

We are 2 retired farang from Germany and Holland live more than 5 years Thailand.
We want to start a shop for second hand buy and sale things.
What we need for license, papers and where we must ask?
Do we need Lawyer and how many Thai people we must lett work?
Must we start Company and can we work? of only Thai?


Hey there,
Congratulations on deciding to start your own business. It's a challenging task but quite rewarding - you also choose when you want to work too!

On how to get started I strongly recommend that you get a free consultation from an attorney in Thailand. Just be sure that they're up-to-date on how the legal things work.

Some good websites to get started are:

MagnaCarta

Siam Legal

They're both located in Pattaya and are professional. In any case I wish you the best of luck and I'm sure you'll make it happen.
