If you love spicy food that Thailand is the country to live in, but if you are not so keen on hot and spicy food, there are also plenty of options available. There are plenty of different cuisines available in Bangkok as well as Thai food, and there are a lot of options for delivery, meaning if it is hot out you do not even have to leave your home for some tasty food. When it comes to healthy food delivery, Bangkok also has plenty of options for you, including vegan and vegetarian options which are delicious and healthy for you.
Bangkok can be stifling when you are not used to the weather, and it often seems like the only difference in the temperature is it is hot, or hot and wet. The cooler season which is also most popular for tourists to visit runs from November to February, which is followed by summer from March to May when it can get hot. From June to October, it is the rainy season, and although it can be cooler with the rains, it still gets hot.
Working In Bangkok
As a foreigner living in Thailand, you are limited to the jobs that you can do, as there are careers which are solely reserved for Thai people, such as waiting on tables, working in a bar, and construction. However, there are plenty of careers available for foreigners in Thailand, and if you search, you can find a suitable job if you need one. If you are retired, you will not need to worry about this and can spend your days exploring the city, and areas outside of it, which may help you to fall in love with the Land of Smiles.
