I have been living in Thailand for over 20 years, witnessing the remarkable changes the country has undergone since the Asian Financial Crisis. Throughout my time here, I have lived Phuket, Samui, Hua Hin, and Chiang Mai, but ultimately, I always find myself returning to the bustling city of Bangkok. This dynamic metropolis served as the perfect setting for me to run a software development company and teach at universities. Nowadays, I embrace the digital world, with Bangkok as my home base. My unwavering belief in the enormous potential of Thailand and its people inspired me to create Thaivest. Through this platform, I aim to help individuals from around the globe discover how to thrive and make a fulfilling living in this captivating country.
