his book is intended as a help for both newcomers and longer staying people from Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland who have decided to live and work in Thailand. It explains and facilitates practical issues and intends to inspire you to get the most out of your stay. When you move here, you will need to find new friends. The best way is by joining one or more of the social and professional associations for Scandinavians here. Maybe there is one for particularly your nationality. That is the case for Scandinavians in Hua Hin. If not, broader scope associations like Scandinavian Society Siam in Bangkok or Scandinavian Expats Club in Pattaya are excellent places to meet new people. The Scandinavian business community is also a vibrant group of very different companies from the small entrepreneur to the big corporations with manufacturing units and countrywide net of outlets. At the back of this book you will find a directory of all these companies, plus a few more that in each their way are also an important part of the Scandinavian network in Thailand. This booklet is brought to you by ScandAsia - the only magazine that serves all Scandinavian expatriates from Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland living in China and South East Asia. There are five versions of the magazine, targeting - with different content - the Nordic readers in China, Singapore, Thailand, Indochina or Malaysia/Indonesia/Philippines. Part of the circulation is placed at points frequently visited by Scandinavian tourists. Like this book, the magazine is free - financed by advertisements only. It is linked to the website www.ScandAsia.com - the well-established portal for all things Scandinavian in Asia. Here you find all the contacts you need and all the events that are arranged for you and other Scandinavian residents in Thailand. You should sign up for the monthly e-newsletter and emails from this website and submit your address to receive also the monthly magazine. I wish you a happy year in Thailand!

LANGUAGE Thai, or more precisely Central Thai, is the national and official language of Thailand. It is spoken and understood by all Thai people. But for many, their local dialect will remain their first language. Although most words are the same, these dialects will have a different sound and many of the words will be quite different to Central Thai. The Thai language is tonal and has a unique script with far more character than the western alphabet. It has also three relational markers which help the Thai reader understand how the word is pronounced. Some words in Thai have roots back to Pali, Sanskrit and Old Khmer. Some words been assimilated from Chinese and recently, many words have been adopted from English, often with a convenient abbreviation that makes it hard to recognize. The most famous word adopted from French is the Thai word that used to describe all white skinned foreigners, “farang”. The word comes from the Thai pronounciation of the country France, “Farangcet”.

TRANSLATION

FOOD

It is not possible to use online services like for instance google translate to translate text in Thai into text in English or any Nordic language. Single words are possible to translate with reasonable certainty. However, several apps can easily be downloaded on your mobile phone that will be able to help you with this. There are are also several handheld devices specifically developed to translate from Thai to English and from English to Thai, often with sound option. You will find them in the electronic department of any department store. For official translation of documents, there are many small and inexpensive service operators in the main tourist centres of Thailand.

The Thai cuisine is the national cuisine of Thailand. Blending elements of several Southeast Asian traditions, Thai cooking places emphasis on lightly prepared dishes with strong aromatic components. The spiciness of Thai cuisine is well known. As with other Asian cuisines, balance, detail and variety are of great significance to Thai chefs. Thai food is known for its balance of three to four fundamental taste senses in each dish or the overall meal: sour, sweet, salty, and bitter.

WEATHER Thailand has a tropical climate, high in both temperature and humidity. April and May are the hottest months of the year, then in June, the South West Monsoon brings with it the rainy season until October. From November to the end of February, there is a cooling North East breeze and a reduction in the humidity level. It is always much cooler in the north where the temperature may occasionally drop to as low as 2째C.

CULTURE The Thai culture incorporates cultural beliefs and characteristics indigenous to the area known as modern day Thailand. It is coupled with much influence from ancient India, China and Cambodia, along with the neighboring pre-historic cultures of Southeast Asia. It is influenced primarily by Animism, Hinduism, Buddhism, as well as by later migrations from China and southern India.

Moving here

THE CHECKLIST Pick an international moving company International moving companies have the experience and contacts to transport personal belongings across borders. Several months before your move, choose a mover based on recommendations from people you trust - or based on your own thorough research. ScandAsia recommends BluFox or Santa Fe but you may also ask for instance people on the board of one of the local associations listed on www.scandasia.com. Determine what to bring and what to store You do not need to bring all of your belongings along with you as you can purchase bulky and impersonal items. Plan to bring a few months’ supply of customised toiletries and medications so you are covered until you find local alternatives. Choose the school for your children If you are moving abroad with children, make all schooling arrangements before you depart. Ask other people already living in Thailand about their recommendations - e.g. people on the board of one of the local associations listed on www.scandasia.com. Contact potential schools to determine curriculum, facilities, class sizes and language matters. See more about this important issue later in this guide.

Look into shipping your car Before you import your car, you need to decide if shipping makes sense. Talk to your international mover and the country’s embassy for advice and planning for shipping of your vehicle if it makes more sense than selling the old car and buying a new one in Thailand. Plan shipping belongings and luggage Separate your belongings carefully. It is better to ship most things, but keep in mind that international shipping takes a longer time. Carry important documents, seasonal clothing, medications and favorite children’s toys with you instead. Get contact information People will need to contact you both before and after your move. If you have to disconnect your phone number, inform your contacts, especially the moving company you have selected, of an alternative means of reaching you, like your email address.

VISA REGULATIONS Since military takeover of power in Thailand, the immigration rules have been managed in a way that is very confusing to most foreigners. At time of printing this booklet, our best a dvice if you plan to stay more than 3 months in Thailand is to apply for a visa at your local Thai embassy or consulate. Be sure to apply for the right type of visa. Visa on arrival If you are sure that you will not stay over 30 days in Thailand, there is no need to apply for a visa. Passport holders from all the Nordic countries will get permission to stay for 30 days if they arrive at an airport and 15 days if they arrive at a land checkpoint. Conditions are: a) your passport must be valid for at least 6 months on the day you enter b) you have proof of onward travel (confirmed air, train, bus or boat tickets) c) you have enough money to support yourself during the stay. Tourist Visa Tourist Visa can be applied for at any 14

Thailand Expat Guide

embassy or consulate general outside Thailand. Applicants should submit a completed application form with a recent photograph. The application fee is 1,000 Baht (subject to change without notice). Arrival with a Tourist Visa to Thailand gives you permission to stay up to 60 days if you arrive by air. If you arrive overland you may be refused entry if you have just stayed 30 days on a Visa on arrival prior to applying for the tourist visa, so better fly. Education Visa Students at Government approved educational institutions can apply for a non-im ED (Education) visa and renew this visa in Thailand without having to leave the country to apply for extension. You can also start by coming to Thailand and then enroll the course here in the school, you chose. Often, students select the Thai language course. The school offers to handle all the paperwork, but most or all of the tuition fees must be paid up in advance. An education visa costs 2000 Baht (60 USD, 40 EUR - subject to change) paid to the Thai Embassy or Consulate. The tuition fee is not included in these fees.


Moving here Business Visa If you want to work in Thailand, you will need a Business visa (non-Im ‘B’). You have to apply at an embassy outside Thailand. The easiest is to start from your home country, but if you are already in Thailand, we suggest applying at the Thai embassy in Singapore. The most important paperwork you need are: a) letter from your Thai company stating your position and salary. b) corporate registration papers from the employing Thai company. A business visa does not allow you to work in Thailand but is the first step needed to apply for a work permit. Additional paperwork is needed if you intend to work as a teacher. The schools know what to provide and will hand you a bundle of documents for submission to the embassy.

Retirement Visa Those over the age of 50 can apply to live in Thailand for one year at a time using a retirement visa. The application starts with obtaining a three-month retirement visa, also known as an “O-A” visa. This is extended in Thailand. To qualify for a retirement visa you need to have the following documents: a) Copy of your passport b) Passport photos c) Letter from bank showing 800,000 Baht deposit, or d) Proof of 60,000 Baht a month income e) Criminal record clearance from country of origin f) Medical certificate g) Completed application form Attorneys can come in handy during the process especially if you want to bring some of your personal items from your home country which is one of the common issues that create confusion.

Before you buy a home, always consider renting a property in Thailand when you retire as a start. The financial requirements can be a combination of both income and fixed deposit. This needs to be calculated for you. Visa runs Most foreign visitors to Thailand are granted a 30 day stay upon entry via airport, or 15 days via any land border if they arrive without a visa. Extending your visa for a week without leaving the country cost 1900 baht. It is currently not clear if you can extend the stay by leaving Thailand by land and return with a new visa. Best option is to ask the immigration office in Bangkok before you believe what others tell you. A short number to call 24 hours has been established in cooperation between Immigration Bureau and Government Contact Center. The number is 1111 but when we have tried calling it, the phone has never been answered. Another number at the Government Complex in Chaengwattana, Bangkok is +66 02 141 9889 16

PERMANENT RESIDENCY Applying for Permanent Residency in Thailand requires you to have the following criteria: a) Must have had a Thai non-immigrant visa for at least three years prior to the submission of your application. Holders of multiple NON-Immigrant visas cannot apply. You must have three consecutive yearly extensions in order to qualify. b) Must be a holder of a non-immigrant visa at the time of submitting your application. c) Must be able to meet one of these categories: • Investment category (minimum 3 - 10 Mil. Baht investment in Thailand) • Working / Business category • Supports a family or Humanity Reasons category: In this category, you must be having a relationship with a Thai citizen or an alien who already has a residence permit as a husband or wife; father or


Moving here mother; or a guardian of a Thai child less than 20 years of age. • Expert / academic category • Other categories as determined by Thai Immigration You should note that the list of required documents for the application depends on the category under which the application is made. Once your application for Thai Permanent Residency is approved, a residence blue book is issued to you. You must then register your place of residence in Thailand at the local Amphur and obtain a house card. A week after the receipt of your residence certificate you can then apply for an alien book (red book) at the local police station, which is the equivalent of the Thai national ID card. You must re-register there every year. The Residency Permit itself never expires, unless revoked. To be able to leave

the country and return to Thailand, however, requires you to apply for a re-entry permit (endorsement). You can file an application to become a Thai naturalized citizen after holding Permanent Resident status in Thailand for 10 consecutive years.

DO NOT OVERSTAY In July 2014, new very strict rules regarding overstaying the visa was announced by the immigration police. If you overstay your visa and the police catch you anywhere except in the process of leaving the country, you will be banned from entering Thailand again for the next five years. If your overstay is more than a year and you are caught you will be banned for ten years. If you are caught when leaving the country, the rules are slightly less strict.

Setting up a home

I

f you plan to stay in Thailand for more than a typical vacation, finding a place to live is top priority.

RENTING Though there are several options to choose from, it is advisable not to immediately jump into real estate and purchase a property. Renting an apartment until certain of your commitment level for purchase is better. There are several types of accommodation in Thailand including high-rise apartments, condominium complexes, seaside bungalows and stand-alone houses and all are usually available for rent. Since foreigners are not allowed to own land in Thailand (see below), local landlords are sensitive to expats’ rental needs, and do a good job of advertising available properties. Individual rental agreements vary so check the terms and conditions carefully. Most rental agreements are one-year contracts secured with a deposit. When you want to terminate the rent, the landlord must be informed at least 30 days in advance. If the agreement is terminated before the end of the signed agreement, the security deposit may be kept or returned based on the terms in the contract but mostly at the landlord’s discretion. The tenant is responsible for any damage to the apartment or house as well as any furnishings that came with the property. The security deposit will be retained to cover any damage or items missing from the property. Local condominium apartments vary with location and design ranging from 4,000 to more than 14,000 Baht. In the most exclusive end of the market, rents up to 100.000 Baht per month are available. The high cost apartments are justified by excellent facilities and convenient location.

Tips Bargaining is often not an option on rental prices. Many landlords would rather leave their properties empty than compromise on the rental price they find reasonable. Even if your rental agreement may be ‘informal’, it’s advisable to buy a standard rental agreement for you and the landlord to sign. This will provide you with protection in the case of unfair eviction. To make sure that your deposit is refunded in full, take plenty of photos of the place, and conduct an inspection of the property with the landlord in attendance, pointing out to them any problems with the place. Since you are paying for your own electricity, water and telephone bills, be sure to conserve power whenever possible.

Setting up a home

HOME PURCHASE Thai real estate is a complex area, so before contacting a real estate agents who have property for sale in Thailand, it may be more helpful to get to terms with the requirements of purchasing property in Thailand.

Condominiums Condominiums are equal to what we in the Nordic countries call apartments. On certain simple condition, foreigners may legally own a condominium in their own name. A foreigner may own a condominium as long as the condo is one of the foreign quotas of the building which can usually be no more than 49 percent of the total number of condos in the building. And it must be above the third floor. Not all blocks of apartments are condominiums; the building has to be registered with the land department as a “condominium�. Check for this carefully before signing any agreement. Land Foreigners are forbidden to own land. This includes attempts to evade the law through a Thai proxy or straw man/-woman or a setting up of a Thai company with the purpose of evading this law. Foreigner are welcome to purchase a land lease, also called leasehold. The maximum time limit for the land lease is 30 years and the lease must be written in Thai although a translation may be filed along with the Thai-language contract. The contract must be recorded on the land title at the local Land Office to protect the foreigner from

Setting up a home eviction in case for instance a new land owner would wish to build something on the land. Once you own the land lease, you can own the house, you may decide to build on it. Professional assistance Visit a few real estate agents before deciding who to rely on when requesting professional help to search for property. While real estate agents are good in assisting you in your research, they are seldom independent professionals. In Thailand, a property agency is often owned by the company who built the property which would be illegal in the Nordic countries. Select your own lawyer. Don’t rely on the sellers or the agency’s lawyer. The ownership issue is important to arrange in a way that can not later be deemed a circumvention of the law by the Thai authorities. If you plan to build your own house, a lawyer is indispensable.

Setting up a home

BUILDING YOUR OWN There are several procedures to go through prior to being able to build a house in Thailand. Since foreigners are not allowed to own any land in Thailand, it is essential to consult an independent lawyer before going ahead with any type of building contract. Building permits are regulated by the Building Control Act and issued under the Town and City Planning Act. If the land to be used to build on has a clear and legal title deed, a building permit can be obtained at the Land Dept Office. Usually, the builder applies for building permits on behalf of the construction owner. Other factors There are other factors that are looked at and should be observed when applying for a building permit, which is where a lawyer would come in very handy. Also, depending on which zone you have decided to build your house in, keep in mind that several zoning restrictions may apply. 22

Thailand Expat Guide


Setting up a home Documents needed for acquiring a building permit include; a) Title deed that allows for purchase, sale or transfer. b) Architectural drawings. c) Land Development permits: Land Trade and Land Distribution License. d) Infrastructure permits; Water, electricity and housing construction.

HOME DECORATION After making a decision and finally moving in to your new house - rented, purchased or built by yourself - it is time to turn it into a cozy and comfortable home. The Nordic kitchen concept that works as a living room has become popular. A company that is an expert in making built in clossets and cabinets as well as other home decoration solutuions is the Swedish owned company The Cabinet.

Building material and hardware Moving in to a new home, there are probably a number of adjustments or minor changes you would like to make to your house with some hardware and building material. There are a large number of local stores nationwide, as well as larger stores with conveniently located store branches around the country such as HomeWorks and Homepro. You will find a variety of hardware, do-it-yourself items, garden supplies, electrical items and tools that you can use for your home.

Furniture Depending on your desired design and trend, there are many stores which offer different varieties of furniture at attractive prices. There are a number of smaller, more localised furniture shops with staff who can speak some English. Asian furniture mixes nicely with Scandinavian style homes and will preserve unique memories from your stay in Thailand. If you don’t bring anything with you from your previous home, there are mega stores all over Thailand around such as Index Living Mall, Central Department Store, IKEA, Powerbuy, Koncept and Homepro.

FACILITIES Satellite TV The biggest satellite TV provider is True Visions UBC. It has a variety of channels including National Geographic, Star Movies, HBO, BBC World, Star Sports, Animal Planet, CNN, Cartoon Network among many others. The programmes are available in 24

different packages of varying costs depending on the channels chosen by the subscriber. A monthly programme guide will be sent to the subscriber’s home address.

Swedish SVT World is a legal IPTV provider that connects you over the Internet with the TV stations back home. Internet Internet usage has grown rapidly in Thailand and service providers compete to offer attractive packages. Currently, True is the largest internet provider in the country. True branched out providing broadband services with their True Move service as well so you can have Internet at home through your International TV provider. TOT, Cat Internet and TT&T are other prominent internet service providers. For wireless connections, apart from local

HOUSEHOLD INSURANCE hotspots, it is also possible to get monthly contracts or prepaid cards that include WiFi access from your mobile phone or ADSL companies such as AIS, DTAC, True or 3BB. Postal system Thailand Post Company Limited owned by the state is Thailand’s postal service provider. There are more than 3,000 post offices in Thailand with over 30,000 “pigeon holes” in various locations.

A household insurance would be very useful in the case of unexpected damages that may occur to your home. It is encouraged that you don’t rely on your landlord, in the case that you are renting your accommodation, to already have some kind of coverage. It is best to acquire an insurance that covers your home in the case of a fire, flood or theft. These are the extreme cases through which a huge amount of damage cannot be accounted for.

Working in Thailand

F

oreigners who wish to work in Thailand, whether paid or voluntary, must have a work permit. Exceptions are only reserved for certain international agencies, diplomats, those working for the United Nations and a small number of other categories. Foreigners are restricted from certain occupations that are protected under the Foreign Business Act of 1999. Those include agriculture, manual labour, forestry, architecture, product manufacturing, hairdressing, and certain professions such as law and accountancy. If caught working in these jobs or listed professions, the person could face criminal charges, and may be imprisoned for up to five years and/or pay a fine of up to THB 100,000. You may question situations in which a work permit is absolutely necessary. The official definition of work by the Ministry of Labour is “exerting energy or using knowledge whether or not in consideration of wages or other benefits”. Organisations representing foreigners working in Thailand have tried for years to request for clear definitions, but so far no Thai government has been willing to change the current regulations that could be abused by corrupt state officials.

GETTING A WORK PERMIT A work permit is issued by the Department of Employment, Ministry of Labour. In applying for a work permit in Thailand, you need the assistance of your potential employer. The procedure is complex and involves the collection of a large amount of documentation. In general, there are two criteria, that must be met. The employing company must employ at least four Thais for every foreigner whose work permit it sponsors and the company must have a paid up share capital of no less than 2 mill. THB.

The normal procedure to gain a work permit after arrival in Thailand is first to travel abroad e.g. to Singapore with the papers prepared by your new employer in order to apply at a Thai embassy for a Non-Immigrant B Visa. When you arrive back in Thailand with that, your employer can start applying for a work permit. It will usually be granted for either six months or one year regardless of your contract. Once issued, a Work Permit must be kept at the place of employment ready for inspection. Expiry The Work Permit expires when the NonImmigrant B Visa expires. Check the date of expiry of the visa and make sure it’s renewed before the expiration date to avoid going through the entire application process again. Since the work permit is valid for the particular job with the company used to apply, any change in duties or transfer to another employer must be applied for and approved in advance for a transfer or application of new work permit. Employment without permit Penalties applicable to foreigners working without work permits can be quite harsh ranging from a fine from THB 2,000 to THB 100,000 and/or imprisonment and/ or deportation. In addition to that, working without permit may result in other penalties being imposed under the Immigration Act prohibiting reentrance to the country (blacklisted). In practice, however, the authorities usually settle the case and deport the person from Thailand. It is highly recommended that foreigners who wish to work in Thailand make an effort to apply for a proper work permit. ScandAsia Business Directory 2014

Working in Thailand

JOB SEARCH Looking for a job in Thailand may not be as difficult as you think. The newspapers carry job advertisements and there are several online job advertisement portals. From there on, it is the same process as you would go through in any other country. It depends on the employers’ needs and the job seeker’s skills. The more specialised the skills, especially in the fields that are in higher demand, the better the chances.

Location is an important factor to consider. Tourist areas such as Bangkok, Pattaya, Hua Hin or Phuket pose stronger competition in the job market. Teaching is a primary job choice for many, but there are also opportunities in sectors such as banking and finance, computer and IT, sales, entertainment, tourism, writing, administration and in areas using specialised skills. Don’t bother applying for jobs where the company has specified it as “Thai National Only”. They cannot give you a work permit.

START UP A BUSINESS While foreigners may set up a company in Thailand, it is not a straightforward process and all company documents filed have to be in the Thai language. The help of a professional with experience in the field is highly recommended; there are restrictions on the type and activity of businesses that foreigners can be involved with under the Foreign Business Act and other legislation.

Money matters

T

hailand is a more affordable place to live compared to the Nordic countries. This and other factors make Thailand a preferred country for retirement. In recent years, companies in the Nordic countries have started moving tasks to be performed in Thailand. The job is done by the same staff as before but relocated to Thailand where the salary may be less but the person will likely enjoy a higher standard of living for the amount.

COST OF LIVING The general cost of living in Thailand can be very low or very high according to the chosen life style. Renting a fully equipped, high end condo in the heart of Bangkok, dining at western restaurants every day and visiting top nightclubs often would certainly require a high cost of more than THB 70,000. There are however alternatives to this. Renting a townhouse in the suburb of Bangkok for 8000 THB per month quite normal for the price conscious family. Eating out every day, mostly Thai food with an occasional western treat, purchasing Thai goods from the supermarket and visiting a bar once or twice a week would probably come up to THB 25,000 - 40,000. Food, accommodation and shopping can be obtained at very reasonable cost but as usual, the cost of living depends on location. Renting a furnished, modern house in places like Phuket, Koh Samui, Surin, Nong Kai or Korat would call for less expense. 

BANKS AND ACCOUNTS Expats are allowed to open a bank account in Thailand but the process of doing so may not be that easy. Most banks will insist that

you must have a work permit before you are able to open a bank account. But sometimes a branch would just require a non-immigrant type visa. Local banks in popular tourist areas are usually more helpful as they regularly deal with foreigners. Best advice is to try a few different branches and a few different banks. The major Thai banks are Bangkok Bank, Krung Thai Bank, Kasikornbank, Siam Commercial Bank. The alternative is to leave your money in a bank abroad and simply transfer the money you need using ATM machines or charging payments to your bank card. Be sure to withdraw money in big amounts as there is a bank fee of 150 THB for dispensing any amount of money from your foreign bank card using a Thai ATM machine. On top of that you foreign bank may have additional charges.

PRIVATE BANKING One of the incentives for working abroad is the opportunity to save up more money than if you were working back home. Foreigners in Thailand pay taxes usually only on the amount they are being paid by their employer in Thailand and not on any additional benefits that the employer may pay into a retirement account elsewhere in the world. If you go out for networking events, you will soon get phone calls from international wealth management representatives who will ask you for a meeting where they will explain how they can make your money grow faster. While such a meeting may be educational, it is probably wise to investigate who these companies really are before you trust them with your hard earned saving. You should instead contact yourself some of the private banking institutions that serve other Scandinavians living in Asia like ScandAsia Business Directory 2014

INCOME TAX Everyone, foreign or Thai, who work in Thailand or have taxable income must apply for a taxpayer’s identification number which is issued by the Revenue Department on presentation of a Thai identification card or foreign passport and evidence of the need for the number. A foreigner who lives in Thailand for more than 180 days in a tax year (the calendar year) is considered a Thai resident for tax purposes. A resident is required to file taxes on all income received within Thailand as well as income received from foreign sources brought into Thailand. A non-resident living in Thailand less than 180 days within a tax year is only required to file a tax return and pay taxes on income received from sources within Thailand.  All foreigners who work in Thailand are generally required to hold a valid work permit for the position they hold. But a tax resident foreigner is liable to pay tax on income received, as set out above, regardless of whether they have a work permit. Recently, the tax structure was made more progressive following the following steps:

Money matters

Withholding tax Employers must withhold some of the money they pay to both foreigners and locals and pay the withheld amount to the revenue departmment. The taxpayer will instead get a receipt that they can use as proof of tax paid already. After the year end 31 December, the taxpayer must fill out a tax return paper and when the amount of tax to be paid is calculated, the money that was withheld through the year must be deducted to see if the tax payer will get money back or will have to pay an additional tax. There are different rates of withholding tax depending on the sort of income. If the foreigner is a local resident, the withholding tax can vary from 5 to 37 percent. If the foreigner is non-resident, the withholding is 15 percent. Social welfare contribution All companies employing more than ten employees are obliged to make a contribution to the Provident Fund. Compensation can be claimed from this fund in case of, amongst others, retirement or decease during the employment. The compensation amounts to the total of the contributions made by the employee and employer, as well as the benefits accrued on it. Each company and employee also has to make contributions to the Social Security

Fund. The contribution amounts to 5% of the total salary but cannot be more than 750 Baht. As is the case in many countries, this fund serves for example for those who are injured, sick, disabled, or on maternity leave. Child welfare and unemployment (50% of the salary for maximum 180 days) are paid out of this fund as well. Companies employing more than ten employees also have to pay a contribution to the Workmen’s Compensation Fund, amounting to between 0.2% and 1% of the annual salary of the employee (depending on the assessed risks of the work). In case of injury, sickness, disablement or decease, the employee or the heirs will receive compensation (60% of the monthly salary) and reimbursement of certain costs out of this fund.  Foreigners employed in Thailand participate in all the above schemes.

GENERAL TAXES Value Added Tax The general rate of VAT levied on the sale of all goods and services is seven percent. For certain services, it is zero rated, and for others, exempted. The VAT registration is compulsory in certain cases, such as in the case of a company’s sales exceeding 1.8 million Baht in an accounting period. VAT returns are filed monthly with the tax due which is basically the difference between the VAT paid and the VAT collected. Taxation of inheritance and gifts of assets There is no death duty or inheritance tax in Thailand, although transfers of land and buildings, or shares upon death or by gift are subject to transfer fees and stamp duty. Gifts are not tax exempt however depending on individual circumstances, the person who gives the gift or the person who receives the gift may be subject to withholding tax and income tax.

Choosing your school

C

hoosing a new school when moving from any of the Nordic countries to Thailand has become increasingly difficult for parents. There are more and more schools established all the time, and each institution has its own unique philosophy and attributes. Comparing what they offer with the needs of your child is no simple task. Most parents probably start out by asking other parents of their own nationality which school they have chosen and why. Then you find out they have chosen different schools and for different reasons and you are back to square one. There is probably no way around making your own inquiry into each available option.

issues compared to their former friends back home. If you are uncomfortable with this prospect you may prefer to look into the option of choosing a local school or a boarding school back home. Once this is said, most expat families decide to go for international schools like Bangkok Patana, NIST International School, KIS International School, Harrow International School or the British International School Phuket, at least through primary school up to grade 9. At that age, other options like one of the excellent boarding schools back home in Scandinavia or out here inn Asia may be considered - see the next chapter.

LOCAL VS INTERNATIONAL First choice is if you are looking for a local school or an international school? In most countries in Asia, a local school is an option - although certainly a more challenging option for your child. If you child is mixed Scandinavian - Asian this may, however, not be so frightening a prospect. And mostly it will have an economic silver lining as local private schools are less costly compared to international schools. However, physical punishment has not been abolished in the Thai school systems, so take this into consideration. Talk to the school how they administer physical punishment and ask if they can make an exception for your child if you are not comfortable with this. If you go for the International school, consider that international students grow up and evolve in a cultural environment that is vastly different to that of your own. Known as Third Culture Kids (TCKs), they often develop a very different attitude to many

For Swedish parents planning to stay not for long, a special option is to allow your child to remain within the Swedish School system with schools like Svenska Skolan i Thailand. For the Norwegian, Finns and Danes, no such alternative is available

A FEW SUGGESTIONS So now you have the table filled with brochures of different schools and wonder what to look for. Here are a few suggestions to help you make up your mind: First: How far away is the school from your home? Before spending time looking through school courses, you need to make sure the school is not too far away. Bear in mind that in most 36

Thailand Expat Guide

big cities, it is the traveling time between your home and the school that matters. How long will it take for your child to get to school and home afterwards? How will your child be going there? Especially in cities like Bangkok, you will be challenged by some of the heaviest rush hour traffic in the world. Second: What reputation does the school have? Talk to people as much as possible. This is where your first intuition comes handy. Don’t listen to opinions expressed by people who have no children at the school themselves - parents are quick to seek confirmation of their own choice by adopting opinions about the competing schools. The age of the school is no sure indi-


Choosing your school cation either. Nothing guarantees that the reputation of a hundred year old school is better than a one year old school. Third: How are the courses at the school? The school’s courses and programs will most likely be listed in the school’s information packages. They will talk about British Curriculum and American Curriculum and - what most Scandinavians these days go for - the IB curriculum. This is important as you will most likely have to relocate again in a few years. Find out if the native language and culture of your child is taught as optional learning. It is important for your child to keep his or her ties to your cultural background. It is also important for you. Ask questions about the tests and exams which are offered and used as evaluation method. If your child is already a secondary school student, ask how well the graduating students do in getting accepted into major universities both in your current country, back home and elsewhere overseas. Fourth: What other activities can the school offer your child? Besides the fundamental course works, what kind of arts, sports, community service does the school offer? Are there proper facilities to support those activities? It seems that schools almost compete with each other when it comes to sports, thus many schools will have gymnasiums and sport complexes, which are either new or remodeled. But maybe your child is more into other activities - computer programming, performing arts?

Most schools offer after-school/weekend programs as well as field trips and community services. You should be able to freely pick the activities that best suit your child. Fifth: Does the school have qualified personnel? This is not as obvious as you may think. The school is most likely private and qualifications for employment are not as strict as for schools back home. What educational degree do they hold? How long have they been teaching at the school? What kind of teaching methods do they prefer? Are they involved in planning and evaluating the curriculum? Will they be giving special attention to each child’s problems or personal needs?

Sixth: What do the current students think of the school? If it’s possible, talk to some of the existing students. Are they happy there? Do they look motivated to learn? How will the school help your child get started? Do they assign

so-called “buddies” (another student from the same country) for new students? Most schools have established student organizations to provide service to students at a personal level. Here, students can get help about studying, working, individual needs and so on. Seventh: How is the relationship between the school and the parents? You will obviously not be able to monitor your child in school. The teacher will have to be your eyes and ears. You must be notified of your child’s functionality regardless of grade, and regardless of whether it includes bad behavior or progress your child has made. Make sure that you can get informed as often as possible. You may join a parents’ volunteer program if available. Some schools may offer activities for the whole family as well.

42

Thailand Expat Guide

WATCH YOUR CHILD! Never mind how diligent you do your homework - and maybe the above list is a bit excessive - you will never be able to foresee if your child will thrive at the school. It is therefore important that you make a habit of spending more time than you used to at home talking to your child about how school was today. What they did in class, and what they did outside. Let her or him tell about their new friends. Listen. All may initially sound fine and uncomplicated, but that may just be a honeymoon period. This is the most important step of them all. If your child develops in any way you find disturbing or starts showing signs of discomfort going to school, you should think twice before you tell your child that “this is life - it is not always pleasant!” A change of school at the right time might be the single most important decision to make to put the future of your child on the right track!

Boarding School Benefits

T

he expat lifestyle provides many practical reasons for sending children to boarding school, but the advantages of a boarding experience can go far beyond that. A boarding school is a school where the students live because their parents want them to obtain the special benefits of this kind of education or because they cannot live at home and attend a local school because of their parents assignment to a location without a proper school or because of problems between the parents. Many parents also choose to send their children back home when they reach the age of 12 years or older to ensure that they retain their Nordic roots.  Although the distance and the separation from family and loved ones can take its toll on both the child and its parents, sending children to boarding school in their home country remains a popular choice for expats. The benefits of attending boarding school are many. Gaining a better understanding

44

Thailand Expat Guide

of roots and cultures, desires for academic achievements, a change of scenery, or being bored with life abroad are just some of them. Whatever the reason, the boarding school experience has many advantages, like small class sizes, diverse curricula, and individual attention from teachers and advisers.

KEY POINTS TO CONSIDER At a boarding school there will always be an adult and mature persons to talk to. There will always b at least one adult at the boarding school who is ultimately responsible for each single student. There are regular contact persons whom parents, other family members, social workers or if needed special advisors can interact with. Attending a boarding school will give the student a fresh start. The teachers and house masters at the boarding school will make sure that the students attend to their classes every day, that they receive the education


Boarding School Benefits

they need, that they take part in healthy activities after school and learn how to socialize with other children their own age. After school, life at the boarding school is the perfect frame for healthy activities with friends. Often part of what boarding schools offer is also a plan of action for each individual student, attention to special individual educational needs or tutoring in a close cooperation with the student and his/her parents.

FOCUSED ATTENTION 24/7 Students at boarding schools are usually taught in smaller classes, which is not always possible in regular schools. The fact that students as well as teachers live on campus also allows for more focused attention on the individual student, and he or she will be able to become absorbed in different subjects and receive the help they need along the way. 46

Thailand Expat Guide

One of the unique qualities of attending a boarding school is the complete integration between the life of the student in class and the life of he student after class. This seamless transition in the everyday life of the boarding school student from one sphere to the other gives a maximum cohesion that ordinary day schools will never be able to match no matter how extensive an extra curricular programme they might establish. Boarding schools are sometimes referred to as “intentional communities” because the faculty and staff of boarding schools work very hard to create an environment for students which is safe, academically challenging, active, and fun. During the academic year, boarding schools become extended families where teachers and students live and learn together. The 24-hour community of a boarding school environment allows the faculty to seize every teachable moment whether in the classroom, on the playing field, or in the dormitory.


Boarding School Benefits

ADAPTING TO A CHANGING WORLD Proponents also claim that because they are constantly surrounded by people their own age, students will acquire the skills to become independent, critical thinkers at an early age. They learn how to deal with their problems in a mature and responsible way, and they will develop the ability to quickly adapt to new surroundings and environments. Being apart from parents and other loved ones also gives the students a strong sense of self, supporters say. They learn to trust and believe in themselves as they work through challenges and hardship on their own without the physical support of their parents nearby. The educational standards and curriculum at boarding schools are primarily based on the standards set for the comprehensive national educational system. In most cases these standards are also well exceeded. Students are encouraged to study more 48

Thailand Expat Guide

than normally because they are constantly in an academic environment, and they are inspired to do so by their peers. Because of this, people who have attended boarding school are, on average, better prepared for future challenges such as college and university.

FRIENDS FOR LIFE At most boarding schools, there is a strong feeling of unity and the community on campus is often very strong, proponents claim. Although the students receive a lot of help and support from their teachers, they very much rely on themselves and the other students. As everyone is in the same boat in a very intense environment where studying and being away from home are some of the key words, the students at boarding schools often form very strong bonds of loyalty and trust with their fellow boarders. After a boarding experience, many find that the friendships they have made last a lifetime.


Boarding School Benefits

NOT FOR EVERYONE Boarding school provides you with skills that will be benefit you throughout life. However, it is important to keep in mind that boarding is not for everyone. For the robust child, the experience will prepare him or her for an ambitious life and it teaches the students to survive on their own when things get rough. If the students has a need to feel secure and comfortable in order to thrive, a boarding school may not always be able to provide that kind of environment. Some will like it while others will not. Having selected a boarding school for their child, parents should observe their child maybe even closely than before the move in order to detect early on any signs that may indicate if their decision to go for a boarding

school was wrong - or if the chosen school was not the right choice for their child,

CHOOSING THE SCHOOL Being no longer limited by the nearest school, choosing the best school becomes in a way easier. You can focus on what you find most important - and the school does not even have to be back in your Nordic home. In Thailand, Harrow International School near Bangkok and British International School in Phuket are two excellent schools with boarding option. In Norway, International School of Bergen takes in boarders as well as days students from the international community in Bergen. In Denmark, there is Stenhus Kostskole & Gymnasium, known for its pioneering efforts in offering classes in Chinese, and Nyborg

nder lifestyle we highlight some discoveries that are rewarding experiences worth your attention, most of them for the style-conscious and culturally interested and actually ideal for very special celebrations. Nevertheless are some outstanding and all are less known to most expats and visitors. Taking you places, this time Thailand Expat Guide turns its attention on things connecting to waterways to share with you some life-enriching experiences along Bangkok’s very own Chao Phraya River. Our journey up the river takes us back to Old Siam, and the colonial era under King Rama V Chulalongkorn. That is where we begin, below the Saphan Thaksin bridge under the BTS station of the same name. Here you will find a shuttlebus taking you directly to the recently launched Asiatique the Riverfront, described as the first of its kind lifestyle project in Asia on the banks of the river. Interestingly, this place is historically important to Scandinavian relation for the history of the Danish legendary East Asiatic Company begins right there, with the pier and warehouses that was erected by this very company, signalling the beginning of a boom in international trade with Europe. Its Danish owner exported teak wood from Thailand and imported an endless list of goods from household commodities to industrial machinery. Today, that area is restored to its original glory with cultural heritage and a global lifestyle playing a big role in the concept and design of Bangkok’s first large-scale riverside project combining shopping, dining, sightseeing, activities and events under one roof (and including a Ferris wheel.) The emphasis on culture sets it apart from other otherwise

predictable shopping mall formula. It claims to embrace history, but avoiding the cultural clichés and traditional symbols, in striking a balance between tradition and globalization, as it overlooks a part of the river seeing more and more modern buildings being added to the panorama. Asiatique is modelled after Bangkok’s four major trade districts, with for instance the Town Square District blending Thai and Western ways of life, and the Factory District which focuses on modern lifestyles born after the ‘Industrial Age’. International fine-dining establishments occupy the areas along the riverbanks, while the city’s longest public boardwalk (300m) is lined with restaurants and events venues. In the same area, on the opposite banks of the river, lies Anantara Bangkok Riverside Resort & Spa paying tribute to the past and the ‘River of Kings’ in its own ways. ‘Dining by Design’ here means dining in a riverside Thai sala hideaway or along the Chao Phraya aboard one of the two centuryold rice barges branded ‘Anantara Cruises’. On board your private butler guides you through the connoisseur menu and tends to your every need.

While we make ourselves at home on the river we get to observe locals living on its banks maintaining an authentic Bangkok lifestyle, reflecting a bygone age in between glittering landmarks of regal heritage such as the Grand Palace and Royal Barges Boathouse. Anantara Song - dubbed ‘The Orient Express of the River’ – the colonial period has been brought back to provide privacy 54

Lifestyle & Heritage and comfort. Separate crew quarters allow guests to feel as if they have the boat all to themselves, while an onboard team, comprising of a captain, two service staff and a chef, delivers seamless cruise expertise and gracious hospitality. These opulent, unique cruises are indeed designed with discerning traveller needs in mind and naturally also come at a price. Less pricy but still an excellent Thai dinner experience is offered by Manohra Cruises – also on board a rice barge also with old world elegance. Next, opposite Banglampoo is a unique 17-room mansion open for stays, events and dining which is only accessible via the river, making it very private and exclusive. In addition Praya Palazzo is a stunning building with interiors and exteriors having undergone a complete renovation, again bringing back the sense and lifestyle of the King Rama V period. The residence has a rich historical background that offers a unique experience making you feel as if you went back in time, living during the golden period of Siam. A visit here for afternoon tea or dining will truly be memorable and a way to surprise someone. As well it is indeed, ideal for visitors (or even for someone living in Bangkok!) who want to relax while enjoying city life in the oldest part of Bangkok and staying in a unique boutique

hotel including authentic Thai culture. Its restaurant serves historical authentic Thai recipes as well as a range of superb western dishes, all with ingredients from the organic Royal Project. Then, to conclude this concierge guide, we continue just a bit further up the river to an even more opulent newly opened attraction of sorts: The Siam (how proper can a name be!?), which, again, transports guests to a bygone serenity. Set on three acres of verdant frontage along the river, The Siam is a private 39room luxury retreat that turns heads, located in Bangkok’s royal Dusit district, branded as the kingdom’s premier urban resort. This ‘retreat’ also comes with a private pier with Thai barge and luxury speedboat for chic cruising.

The overall setting reflects the time of Bangkok’s greatest grandeur under King Rama V, progressing into the prolific Art Deco era. Guests have an array of superlative amenities at their fingertips: gym, spa with hamman, yoga terrace, Muay Thai boxing ring, beauty salon, library, state-of-the-art cinema, infinity swimming pool with jacuzzi beds and poolside bar, gift/antiques gallery, conservatory and traditional Thai houses. For dining and entertaining find a classic coffee house, an authentic Thai restaurant with cooking school in Connie’s Cottage, and a lively Deco jazz bar with 24 hour international dining. Those are the unforgettably unique experiences along the legendary river. 56

Thailand Expat Guide


Golf in Thailand with the option of self-catering from an onsite supermarket or dining in the clubhouse restaurant. In the past year, Black Mountain has added a water park and wakeboard park, both among the best and most modern in Asia, as an added attraction for families. Also with a spa, tennis and volleyball facilities, as well as an excellent driving range, Black Mountain offers something for everyone regardless if they stay and play or have accommodation elsewhere in the greater Hua Hin area.

M

any Scandinavian living in Thailand also consider playing golf an important part of their life. They are joined every year as fall and winter approaches at home by migrating golfers who come to Thailand to play more golf in one of Asia’s golf densest countries. Golf in Thailand is usually played in high temperatures placing added emphasis on the importance of the - mandatory! - caddy, food and beverages services, and extensive changing, washroom and spa facilities at the club house for getting yourself re-energised after the round. Green fees also remain below many competing destinations when compared to the very high quality of the golf courses and resorts. Thailand Golf courses such as the Swedish owned Black Mountain in Hua Hin are well able to compete against the very best courses internationally. Situated in a stunning setting near the southern resort town of Hua Hin, Black Mountain has brand new pool villas to rent,

LEARNING GOLF AS A FAMILY GAME Beginners and juniors are welcome on Thailand’s golf courses. The attitude is that if you’ve paid a green fee, you can play − as long as it’s not to the detriment of the course or the other players. But if neither the parents nor the kids have ever played before, the starting point is usually one of the golfing schools or academies or even the local driving range; the young ones can start from six years old to make a start.

Golf in Thailand

Where ever you are in Thailand a driving range won’t be too far away. For a handful of Thai Baht for a tray of balls, both grownups and kids can have fun learning how to hit the ball by watching the pros before having a go themselves. Almost every range has a pro standing by in some shape or form; some are USGA or Thai PGA qualified or are former touring pros plying their trade. Many of the international schools in Thailand have full golfing programs and either have in-house teachers or employ the regular services of a local golf pro from one of the courses or driving ranges; so once or twice a week the kids are getting proper schooling in the technicalities as well as the etiquette of the game. A great way to get started both for grownups and kids is to visit one of several par 3 courses that exist around the country, if possible during the week when they’re not so crowded. It’s also best to avoid rainy days.

GET AN OFFICIAL HANDICAP Longstayers or residents who would like to have an official handicap issued should join the Golf Section of Scandinavian Society Siam. Membership of SSS is 1000 baht for 60

Thailand Expat Guide

an individual and 2000 baht for a family. On top of that you pay 1200 baht to become a member of the Golf Section. Within this fee, the SSS Golf Section will on your behalf apply for membership at Thailand Golf Association (TGA), who will issue an official handicap. Players have to register all their scorecards to TGA (www.tga.or.th). This also includes scorecards, from games/ tournaments which are not arranged by SSS. When you play with the other members, The Golf Committee will after each tournament send the scorecards to TGA. Players’ handicaps can be found at www.tga.or.th Members with a valid SSS handicap are divided into 3 groups (as per TGA handicap): Group A: Handicap 0 - 18.4 Group B: Handicap 18.5 - 28.4 Group C: Handicap 28.5 - 36.0 Players with no TGA handicap, will play in the guest group To join SSS Golf Section visit www.zabaigolf.com.

Black Mountain

Mountain High at Hua Hin It took just five years for Black Mountain Golf Club near Hua Hin to climb the ladder of golf course notoriety in Asia. Now, seven years since opening, the first course in Thailand to be named (in 2012) in the US Golf Digest list of the Top 100 Courses Outside the United States is the kingdom’s premier lifestyle and leisure resort with golf as its crowning centerpiece. The Black Mountain complex includes a par-3 course, driving range, spa, water park and wakeboard park, condominiums and villas for sale and rent, a sports centre, restaurant, supermarket and bakery. The availability of more than 40 private pool villas in the resort’s rental pool is a big plus for families visiting the resort – from Bangkok, other parts of Thailand or overseas. Few other golf properties in the kingdom have on-site accommodation, let alone a wide range of family-oriented facilities. And none can match the quality of Black Mountain’s golf course.

Offering some of the best scenery and conditioning of any golf course in Thailand, Black Mountain has collected a throng of awards since opening. In May 2012, Black Mountain became the first course in Thailand to make US Golf Digest’s list of the Best 100 Courses Outside the United States. And in late 2013 it took the top award at the Asia Pacific Golf Summit in Jakarta as best course in Thailand for the third year in a row. Black Mountain’s appeal lies in its design, wonderful presentation, range of facilities, service standards and value for money. You only have to play this course once to realise why it is so widely acknowledged as one of Asia’s great golf courses.

Wellness & Leisure

W

ith all the delights and deluxe that Thailand has to offer, too much of anything is also not good. Balance can get lost. People increasingly become aware of that as they get older. But also younger people increasingly need to be reinvigorate and get back to previous healthy habits or create new ones. Many visitors come to Thailand with such needs, as there are a wealth of remedies, health-inducing activities and therapies to delight in and a large number of outstanding spa and wellness resorts. Often it is a combination of a nice environment, and getting away from it all – to focus on oneself for once. One can opt for a holiday combining a nice stay with a health and wellness regime, which can be just pampering, ‘wellness lite’, or going all the way with a hard-core wellness and detox programme, often including a strict regime, meaning healthy food only and no intake of toxins (a glass of organic wine with the dinner meal at best.) Here we highlight those full-package places offering the combination of tranquil overnight stays with body-and-mind improvements – beginning in the north with the unique east-meets-west Tao Garden Health Spa & Resort outside Chiang Mai. An ‘oasis for the body, mind and spirit’, its treatment and therapies programme is very comprehensive. Here one can create or recreate inside balance and outside balance. Tao Garden is an internationally renowned healing centre founded by a Taoist Meditation Grand Master. It is a resort where Chinese and western medicine is combined in a holistic approach offering physical, emotional and spiritual detox programs to live longer and healthier. It is a popular place for Qi Gong too. Reducing weight, breaking a tobacco

addiction, stress relief – people come here for many different purposes. Tao Garden has developed its own Universal Tao healing system and Qi gong classes is the start of the day for any visitor at 7 am. It offers fascinating therapies and treatments and technology that go way beyond anything you have experienced in your typical early medical check-up. Tao Garden also trains therapists in the signature therapies Chi Nei Tsang and Karsai Nei Tsang, ancient Taoist manual treatments for releasing tensions and blockages in the abdominal and pelvic area. These are challenging, sometimes quite unpleasant treatments – no pain no gain – that are though worth it: very rewarding for one’s health.

Wellness and leisure Rather unique is also their darkfield live blood analysis is key and different from the standard blood test, allowing one to see smaller particles not normally visible under standard light microscopic. Knowing the state of blood is used by the Tao Garden Medical Center to gain insight to your body. “There is exercise and meditation to balance out emotion. If the organs are not balanced, your emotions are not balanced.

64

Thailand Expat Guide

And as we all know sickness starts by emotion. So, you can balance the organs with exercise and mediation but also by detox programmes. Cleaning out, balancing the organs, we have detox programme to clean out, you clean out all the blood, and the cells,” explains Walter Kellenberger, Universal Healing Tao Senior Instructor. He compares it with a car: “We do not forget to give our car the 10,000mile service. But for our bodies? We run 20,000, 30,000 or 50,000… and finally we have a big problem and goes: ‘oh, my car is broken, what’s happening? He was running so good, and now it broke down.’ But we never took any care of it. We put the worst oil in, bought the cheapest food etc. Why do you buy the best oil and everything for the car but not for your body?” If undergoing a comprehensive program one can rest assured to be going home with a list of recommendations that will help in one one’s efforts on the road to good health and how to stay in that way.

Thailand Expat Guide


Expat Calendar

T

he typical expat year in Thailand starts in September when “back after the summer” and ends in June with “going home for the summer break”. Most Scandinavian expats in Thailand follow this rythm and enjoy a long summer vacation back in their Scandinavia before coming back for the working stretch during autumn, winter and spring. The international schools follow the expat summer break rythm while local Thai schools follow the Thai calendar dating back to King Rama 6. According to that, a new year starts on the 1st of April. So the students in a Thai school have year end exams in March and then go on a break until the school opens again in May. The traditional expat lifestyle is a bit colonial and more and more foreigners - often younger people employed in Thailand on local contracts - tend to break away from it and follow instead the Thai year with the main vacation around Songkran in April.

AUTUMN IN THAILAND Back after the summer, in September, you can look forward to a straight ten months in Thailand. During that time, a wide variety of events are being organized and offered by the social associations and the Nordic chambers of commerce. One of the highlights in the autumn is the Crayfish Party organized by the Scandinavian Society Siam, usually the last Saturday in September or the first Saturday in October. SWEA and DWN has usually also a “welcome back” event. The same goes for the Scandinavian Expats in Pattaya and the Scandinavian associations in Hua Hin. Throughout the autumn and the following spring, the Norwegian Church in Pattaya keep up an impressive number of well visited community events including of course the Sunday Christ services. The same is to a

lesser extend the case for the Church of Sweden in Bangkok and Phuket The Scandinavian Christmas bazaar is usually held on the 1st of Advent. On 24 December, Christmas Eve, many Scandinavians in Bangkok join the Nordic service in Christ Church with the gospel read in all four home languages - plus sometimes even in Icelandic, too. Leading up to Christmas, all the four Nordic Chambers have usually held wet and rowdy Christmas lunches for their members a success that seems to never stop growing in participation.

SPRING IN THAILAND Spring in Thailand can be an extremely hot season until the Songkran water festival, when the monsoon changes and we get rain and cooler winds blown down from China. For the golfers, Amundsen’s Cup usually in January is a must. For the Norwegians, the annual Seafood Under the Stars-dinner is another highlight some weeks later. The spring is also the season for all the Annual General Meetings with selection of new members to head the different boards of directors, SWEA, TSCC and DTCC have their meetings in March, so does the the Nordic associations in Hua HIn, SSS hold their event in late April. The Norwegians also have their regional Norway-Asia Business Summit in the spring. Many people feel that time goes faster in Thailand than back home. That is of course nonsense, but suddenly it is indeed June again and another year has gone. Time to go “back for the summer” in Scandinavia. The calendar on scandasia.com gives the most comprehensive overview of events. You should subscribe to the weekly calender briefing. It is an email service that every Monday morning informs you and reminds you of events coming up this week. ScandAsia Business Directory 2014
