When you move home with your family, there are a lot of things that you will need to think about and arrange before the big day comes, and it is the same if you are considering moving to Thailand. There are a lot of reasons why people would consider moving to the Land of Smiles, and if you and your family are thinking about making a move there, you will want to consider the factors below to help you choose the best place to live for you and your family.
If you have a family then you will want to ensure that you have a job before you make the move with your family to Bangkok. There are plenty of opportunities for foreign nationals in Thailand, no matter what industry you are in, or skills you have. It is worthwhile noting that there are protected occupations in Thailand, however, these are usually low-skilled jobs which are also low paid.
Bangkok, and the rest of Thailand, has an abundance of choices available when it comes too schooling. One of the most popular options for expats moving to Thailand is to send their children to an international school in Bangkok, which offers the highest quality education in the country. The fees for schools can vary quite drastically, so it is something that you will want to look at before committing to moving there.
When it comes to housing options in Bangkok, there are more free properties to rent or buy that there are people who can afford them, which means there is plenty of choices available. You can choose to rent a house in a gated community with private security guards, or you can choose to live in a high-rise condo building that offers spectacular views of the city. What ever your preference is, you will find that there is plenty to choose from and something to suit all needs and budgets in Bangkok.
The location is the hardest thing to get right in Bangkok unless you have an unlimited budget, and you will need to consider the area that you are going to live carefully before committing to your move. Getting around Bangkok can be a pain, especially when it is raining, so you may wish to consider being close to the transport links of the MRT (Underground Railway) and BTS (Elevated Railway). Although these transport networks do get busy, it makes navigating the busy streets of the city much more manageable.
