About Us And This Retiring In Thailand Website
This is the story of our retiring in Thailand project. There are more than 150 pages and counting of rock-sold content about how to retire to Thailand, how to buy a car in Thailand, how to buy land in Thailand, how to build a house in Thailand and in fact everything we do on our Thailand retirement journey.
The About Us page is a short summary of what you can expect to learn from this website.
It lists all the things we have achieved working towards our goal of retiring in Thailand and a list of the things we still have to do. The list in itself is a valuable checklist to indicate the tasks that lie ahead for anyone intending to retire to Thailand.
There are also pictures of myself and Kanyah, the Toyota Hilux pickup and land in Pakchong that we have purchased plus shorcut links to many of the key pages in the website.
Important: The Latest Infomation Usually In The Posts
This website is made up of two distinct ares:-
1) The Static Pages
These are the pages listed across the top of the Navigation Bar above. They tend to contain information that is ‘timeless’ i.e. they are not time-critical.
No sniplet called Link To Latest Page Manual
These are the pages lited in the vertical column to the right and this is where I put all the new informaion that changes on a daily/weekly basis like progress on various projects such as building the house.
To see the latest progress click on the top post.
I encourage you to dig deep into those pages because you can track the whole history of our Retiring In Thailand journey there.

Why Retire In Thailand?
For us it’s a life-long dream. Since we married 27 years ago Kanyah has always wanted a house in Thailand – me too.
As we travelled the world following my career in the contruction industry – Saudia Arabia, Africa, Russia and the UK where we live now – the dream of retiring in thailand has always been alive and well.
The Opportunity Comes
As the recession continues to grip the construction industry here in the UK and ‘work’ is hard to come by I came into a small pension and a lump sum. Though small, this is enough for us to live our dream of retiring in Thailand at last.
Where Will We Choose To Retire In Thailand?
Kanyah was bought up as a farmer in KamphaengPhet and loves the countryside. But KamphaengPhet is too hot and plagued with mosquitoes now so that’s out of the question. Instead we will retire in the area of Pak Chong which is much cooler than Kamphaeng Phet and is only a short drive from Bangkok.
Building Our Retirement House
I have already prepared an outline design for the house that we will be living in when we finally retire to Thailand. Yes, retiring in Thailand is about to come true for us.
When this page was first written I was planning to build a retirement house in Thailand. Well, now the house is finished, Kanyah is living in it, and I visit frequently.
Retiring in Thailand By Philip Bryce and Sunisa Wongdee Terlecky
At my side every day when I am doing anything about retiring in Thailand is the book Retiring in Thailand in Thailand by Philip Bryce, seen below:-
Rather than go on about how indispensable the book is for anyone wishing to retire in Thailand I would suggest that you learn more about the book here and soon be looking forward to retiring in Thailand.
