For the past month, I have been at my office in Thailand and what a month it was!
Lots of great new ideas and fresh insight into some new business overseas. First order of business was Internet marketing and web development for Property Club Bangkok. This is a new, young and hip company that’s taking the condo sales and rental market by storm in the “Land of Smiles”.
Being in Thailand as a tourist is one thing but actually living and working in Thailand is a whole other ball game…and what a game it can be! I remember my first visits to Thailand back in 1999, when everything seemed magical, exotic and wonderful. It was quite simply a whole different world than what I had ever experienced before. It wasn’t until spending some time living in Bangkok before some of the gloss wore off and I was able to read between the lines.
Motorcycles pushing you out of the way on sidewalks, disabled and wretched street beggars strategically placed daily in tourist spots around the city and plenty more “smoke and mirrors” that create a surreal illusion of reality. It wasn’t until I started reading about the history of Thailand and the Thai people before I was able to at least begin to understand. Thailand is all things Thai and that is priority number one!
Things may not be as they seem…
As a guest in Thailand, whether or not you work there or live in Siam year round, you will begin to understand that you’re still an outsider and always will be. That’s just the reality of how things are. Yes, there are opportunities to be had in Thailand but you need to be careful. Very careful. Whether it’s work related or finding living arrangements, things can become very frustrating rather quickly for those who do not “learn the ropes”.
With that in mind, I had a great idea for my latest “strategy for profit”, which will involve Thailand. As the project develops, I will keep you informed. For anyone interested in visiting, working or staying in Thailand, you’ll love what’s coming up. In the meantime, if you’re considering a long term stay in Bangkok, you should make Property Club Bangkok your first stop. Ask for Mark or Nam. Their staff is fluent in both Thai and English and can help cut through some of the rampant false advertising and bait & switch schemes that exist in Thai real estate ventures.
