Hope the economy here in the U.S. actually is recovering, but my gut's still telling me we are only at the beginning of the downslide (hope my gut's wrong). I'm not starving and have a roof over my head (taking care of Dad and he me), so I'm fine for now.
Hostels? Who's talking of hostels??? On this last trip we stayed a while in a suite in a 4* hotel in Bangkok for US $40.00 for 2 people, including buffet breakfast, 2 swimming pools, view on the river. (If anybody wants the website we use for booking our hotels in Asia, let me know and I'll give it to you in private.)
No hostels for us either, thank you very much.
In Pattaya we rent a big studio (fully equipped) with a huge swimming pool, 8 mns walk from the beach, for US $12.00 a day (US $400.00 a month).

In India though we had to spend at least US 30.00 a day for hotels barely acceptable and with no breakfast nor swimming pool. I don't know why they're so much more expensive than in the rest of the countries we go to in Asia... Of course you can find cheaper but they're real dives.

I hope for your sake you'll find a job in your field soon, Lyle. Good luck

Sylvia

You mean the hotels? That's for sure!!! Europe is quite a lot more expensive than Asia, which is why we spend the winters in Asia rather than in Europe.
There are 10.000 expats living in Pattaya; most of them are from Europe and say they'd rather live in Thailand as they get so much more for their money.

Interesting Sylvia and Lyle. Always enjoy learning more about the people I 'meet' one these forums.
