Hey Guys, i just arrived in Bangkok and will stay at least one month. Any recommendations on Meetups, WhatsApp-Groups, CoWorking Places etc which i shouldn't miss out for socialising? ๐Ÿ™‚
oh noooo i just arrived yesterday and havent checked it
nbransby 23d
Yeah I did, they have a free try out Tuesdays. The layout wasn't great, it was split over several small floors and it wasn't exactly bustling but then it was the rainy season
jae189 23d
im in the same position
mikecruz 23d
Common Ground G Tower has free try out Thursdays
May joining tonight this too!
> Battlefield Bangkok

My favourite boardgame shop -
Thursday is a meet up for social games
Friday is Magic (pretty bussy if you are not magic player)

Except Tuesday is open the rest of the days (Sunday - monday are my favourite days)```

Great tips, might as well check out both then. Thanks

Hey there. Iโ€™m flying to Bangkok on 4th December. My plan is to stay less than 60 days but I saw that the no-visa entry for UK citizens is 30 days. I have an onward flight on 28th January to Vietnam. Need some advice/got questions:
โ€ข Will immigration stop me entry as my onward flight is > 30 days away?
โ€ข If they allow me in, can I extend visa while Iโ€™m in Thailand (similar to how they do it in Bali?)
โ€ข Or should I try sort this out before I get there? Iโ€™m in the Philippines atm and I donโ€™t think I can visit an embassy.
Any suggestions would be appreciated thank you prayskin-tone-4
dthompson 23d
โ€ข No
โ€ข Yes, the immigration officer will likely tell you to do this. Cost is 1900 baht at any immigration office.
โ€ข You could get a single entry visa outside the country, this would give you 60 days stay, plus option to extend another 30
gf1991 23d
hello all, have a doubt about entering thailand via land. do i get a 30 day stay? ive read in some sites that if you enter through land, its only 15, anyone has done it recently? entering from cambodia
cephei 23d
used to be 15 days. I'm not aware that this has changed. unless you enter with a visa.
cephei 23d
second this ^
just tell the immigration officer that you will extend for 30days.
dthompson 23d
Depends on your passport but typically its 30 days entry by land, you can do it twice per calendar year.
gf1991 23d
thanks!! spanish passport
dthompson 23d
Then yes you get 30 days ๐Ÿ‘
azhisl 23d
Thanks guys raised_handsskin-tone-4
First visit? Bangkok if you want large city, Chiang Mai (except not in burning season Feb-Apr) if you want mid-city and nomad community, or one of the islands if you want beach
azhisl 23d
Another question if you have time, I saw online that thereโ€™s a 45 day visa-free entry thatโ€™s allowed according to Thai embassy website. Is that still a thing or is that for special circumstances?

What exactly is the burning season? And is it February to April? I read on other websites that itโ€™s from March to June, Iโ€™m curious what is the truth
silviu 22d
Hello everyone, Iโ€™m planning to come to Thailand in March and stay for an indefinite amount of time. I was planning to start in 1st of March in Chiang Mai, but I heard that there is a thing called โ€œburning seasonโ€. I read online but views and information is very conflicting as to what it is, how bad it is, and what period it starts and ends. Can someone who has been in Chiang Mai for many months shed some clarity? Thanks
During burning season, the under brush in the mountain forests is set on fire in many areas to clear the ground. It creates forest fire levels of smoke that also blows into the cities. Air quality and visibility are terrible during this time.

It generally starts in late January and becomes noticeable in Chiang Mai around the first week of February. It lasts until the spring rains arrive in full which usually happens sometime in April. But itโ€™s nature so itโ€™s variable and not specifically predictable. Sometimes the rains come early and sometimes they come late.

Most people also choose to avoid rainy season which general runs through October. Check the climate table on Wikipedia โ€ฆ

hard to say, its also depend of the weather at the time. If there is no wind, the experience can be harsh. Depends also on your sensibility.
Keep in mind that lot of people live here, and people keep coming during this period... which means itโ€™s manageable.
Most of the time youโ€™ll be in coffee, hotel room or coworking, with AC and youโ€™ll be not affected anyway ๐Ÿ™‚

Chiang Mai

I'm coming to Thailand in a few days - trying to decide which of these cities is the best to spend the month
Nomads in all 3 have made them their homebase, itโ€™ll depend on what specifically appeals to you
nomadnoir 21d
That's fair - I like to spend my time meeting new people in the country I'm in. And ideally I'd like the air quality to be better than Mumbai's lol I just spent a month here.
azhisl 21d
Chiang Mai is great if youโ€™re after a chilled vibe. Good Internet, good food and I found it very clean too. You can meet other nomads in coworking spaces.
haiko 21d
that was a temporary thing and has ended unfortunately. back to 30 days for visa-exempt stays (plus optional extension)
Was just in Phuket and don't think it's great for meeting people (other than bar girls or tourists). Fairly few nomads and meetups. That said, there are beautiful beaches, so it got that going for itself
I heard Rawai in south Phuket is a scaled down version of Canggu. Speaking of which anyone recommend accommodation there?

vijayravi 20d
Depends on what you are into. If you like the mountains - Chiangmai
If you are into beaches - Phuket, railay, aaonang
Apart from that if you are into nightlife, shopping, international cultures go to Bangkok
cephei 20d
Isnโ€™t it Koh Lanta nomad season now?
silviu 20d
Thank you
paulrose 20d
What hannumar said. Honestly I'd avoid it during burning season.

Some days will seem fine, but the AQI will tell you differently. Other days you'll smell the smoke the second you step outside. It isn't worth the risk to your health.
silviu 20d
Thank you for all the information. So from what Iโ€™m getting, May to December is a safe interval to visit Chiang Mai
paulrose 20d
January is fine too
paulrose 20d
It starts getting bad in Feb. But I also love it there at the start of Feb for a few weeks
paulrose 20d
This year I noticed it more than other years
silviu 20d
And this burning season only affects north of Thailand? Like I would be safe in February-March-April if I was somewhere in the south, like Phu Ket?
paulrose 20d
Yeah absolutely. I don't personally like Phuket, but the air is much better down south
silviu 20d
I see, as a side-note, why donโ€™t you like Phuket, and do you have suggestions for other nice places in south Thailand that I could live in instead?
paulrose 20d
I just felt like a cash machine in some parts of Phuket. Which is fine, thats just how it is there. Old Town in Phuket is lovely.

Lanta is good if its in season, pretty quiet though. I love Koh Tao. Samui used to be fun but I didn't enjoy it as much when I was there last time in Feb/March

Covid lockdowns did a bit of a number on some of the islands
hannumar 20d
Don't get me wrong, Chiang Mai during the Burning Season is livable, and I will probably be here during next year's Burning Season too.

You can handle it and be fine, but you need to take it seriously. Wear a mask, always look at the PM2.5 reading, and stay inside most of the time near air purifiers. If you do those, it's fine. Only North Thailand is affected.
silviu 20d
I understand, but I want to be able to explore outside, nature and walk around without feeling like I am prepping for a nuclear holocaust ๐Ÿ˜„
hannumar 20d
Yeah, it's defnitely not great during the Burning Season. Outside of it Chiang Mai is pretty close to paradise.
hannumar 20d
As you can see from the screenshot I posted earlier in this thread, some years Burning Season has been very mild and barely noticeable. But sometimes it's a bad one, and they're not getting better they're slowly getting worse.
kyrtin 20d
Avoiding the season when they burn things near Chiang Mai, starting in February IIRC.
detour888 20d
It is. Kohub opened on Nov 1 and goes til April 30.
pikaivan 20d
Hi, everybody. We will explore Asia for the next 6 months (mainly Thai), can anybody recommend health insurance? I really appreciate any help you can provide.
I was staying near Kohub two weeks ago, but only for two days. Was wondering why I had it starred on Google maps ๐Ÿ˜‚ didn't end up visiting, but curious how Lanta is like as a nomad. Figure I definitely need to learn how to ride a scooter to enjoy it
There's an #_insurance channel as well
Do you need a health insurance or just a travel insurance suitable for nomads?
Lanta is a quiet town but a great nomad community at Kohub, it's a good place to chill and get work done and have people to hang out with for board games and daily sunset drinks
Yeah, Lanta was definitely a nice place to relax, if I ever wanna focus primarily on work, I'd definitely consider spending a while there
Lanta looks very nice
mikedev10 20d
probably one of the best places for you to learn how to scoot as well
yeah very little traffic and basically a straight ring around the island with some side streets out to the beaches
pikaivan 20d
Health also. Sorry, I'm a new one, so I'm not familiar with channel structure.
foucist 19d
could check out|
cephei 19d
ermm, some of you probably forget about the massive holes in the streets caused by every years rainy season. Or is this issue gone now with the new road?
But in terms of traffic it is certainly more relaxed to drive there.
Theyโ€™re still there, donโ€™t drive through puddles anywhere

Itโ€™s not hard to avoid them but yeah worth mentioning to pay attention
Hey guys, me and two mates (all 22y/o, from Australia, fulltime online business owners and potentially soon-to-be digital nomads) will be exploring Chiang Mai between the 10th-14th of Dec. I'm a YouTuber, one of my mates is in ecom, and the other runs a SMMA. Would love to meet up with some likeminded people. If you're keen to hang out/meet up, dm me.
