"I’ve been here for 7 months now, so quite young to Thailand.  My husband work in construction field so we all move here as an expat because of him. Thailand is the best country to be. I’ve been lucky though compare to other European country. The traffic is the problem here if you compare to other European country like Dubai which is more comfortable. Thailand has so much to do. Sport wise like bike mountain, biking community etc. easy access to different country."
