As a new property owner that just bought a villa, a condo or a townhouse in Thailand to settle there for good, moving in a tropical country is not easy as you thought. Having bought that Phuket Property for Sale is like a dream come true, but moving in there can be upsetting if you have not prepared well for the tropics.
If you’re planning to live and work, laze about or retire to a tropical country like Thailand, here are a few helpful tips that you can consider.
Removal Company. Get a good removal company and don’t pay through the nose for it. You can get quotes from 5 different firms that were cheap yet helpful. Some company will do everything, from sorting and packing, to ensuring the legal paperwork was okay at the Thailand end.
Clothing. Remember, the Asian people are much smaller than Westerners and ladies, if you’re over 70kg, you will have problems finding things to fit. If you are from western and European countries, pack everything inside your wardrobe but you can leave the winter boots and coats for they have no use in the tropic’s heat. Surely pack lots of swimsuits and swimming gears for they will help you enjoy the beach life to the fullest.
Acclimatize! Get used to your new climate and enjoy it. Do not sit up on your air conditioned room to avoid the outside heat, you should adapt to the temperature. What is the use of settling in the tropics if you cannot withstand the heat?
Get a Thai driving license. With the production of your Thai driving license, you can access most of the tourist attractions in the country. If you have many visitors each year this could save you a considerable sum when accompanying them on outings.
Eating out is almost cheaper than cooking at home. There are plenty of restaurants that serve palatable dishes so there is no need in bringing a dash of cooking book.
Buy your food in the local markets. The further you are from a town, the lower the prices. The stall holders soon get to know you and enjoy a good chat. Most food is grown locally and taken to market each day. Go to market early.
Finally: a bit of pampering. Go to the masseur at least once a week! This is the healthiest relaxation that stimulates the blood and lymphatic circulation to rid your body of toxic wastes. Go to the hairdressers once a month and not only have your hair coiffed but a manicure and pedicure as well.
Consider and try these tips for you to be a fulfilled Thai resident. Buying that Phuket Property for Sale is a dream come true more than you could ever imagine.
