 Move to Thailand? Are you crazy? Some may ask. But in reality, Thailand is an attractive place with great food, cheap medicines, first class healthcare and wellness support and lots of friendly people who really know how to enjoy life. Those who peel surface that most casual visitors and armchair travellers see will discover that Thailand is a lot more than the sex and human trafficking capital as depicted by the Western media. There are very valid reasons why perfectly decent folks are so keen on living there. But ... what happens if the keen Farang settler peels deeper under the surface of the fun and friendly Thai people?

 Written by author of Spellbound in Chiangmai and Understanding Thailand's Money Culture, this book takes you on a journey from fascination to infatuation, then to realization and finally disillusionment - stages that many foreigners go through when they decide to settle down in the Land of Smiles after seeing all the good things about it.
