    Excellent video you have it all so well covered. I spent 3 months in CM and
    loved every minute. I hope one day I can find a way of spending more time
    there and get out of being locked into the tread mill type of existence
    here in the UK. I look forward to your videos. Keep up the great work.

    Love that house, especially the large yard, with all the fruit trees. The
    surrounding area looks quiet and charming. If it was flooded by the Ping
    River, how far is it from the center of Chiang Mai? How difficult is it to
    find a house like that at that price or were they just lucky?

    @InTheSticks0001 Not really but we use a lot less!

    @chronicreader For you we will find something!! It takes about ten minutes
    from the old city to get here. Type in Google maps Holiday Inn Chiang Mai
    and you will see about where it is.

    Hey J.C do you think you can get a better deal than others regarding the
    price of rent because of your ability to speak the thai language and your
    over all experience of Thailand?

    Great info, thanks again JC. About the water and the external water tank?
    Is the water provided by the city? Or do you have to purchase water from an
    external supplier, and they fill the external water tank? What is the
    potable water situation like? Is the water good from city sources? Or do
    you need bottled water? Didn’t think to ask about that before now? What’s
    the info on potable water in CM? Thank you.

    Thanks JC. A mango tree in ya backyard. cant get much better then that

  8. retirecheapjc

    @fonstock Just a quick response. This fills from the municipal water
    supply. We dink and cook with bottled water. Cheap!

    Hey JC great video JC i am wondering who is always holding your cam they
    do a great job of holding it very still i have found for myself its hard to
    hold the cam still lol .

  11. retirecheapjc

    @sunbird80racer My RetireCheap robot!!! Listens well and the pay is low!

    @nickinlititz Thanks for the compliments. Another difference is here we
    have very little horn honking (see my video). The visa options vary with
    age. Retirement, yes has a minimum income.

  13. retirecheapjc

    @fonstock Actually I planned on going and shooting video because i hear now
    it is expensive and overbuilt. We will see about that and nearby beaches as

    That is exactly what I was suspicious of – – thank you JC. As always, I
    look forward to you’re future reports.

    Please show my sub-lease in your channel. Thank you. Irvingill.

  16. retirecheapjc

    I have no idea who you are or what your sub-lease is. Sorry. Please PM me
    privately with more information and maybe I can help. All my videos I have
    made about rentals ARE on the channel already.

    Omgosh its a house!?!? Cheap…! I pray i make it to thailand.

    Hi all. I’ve got a question for JC. I am a single pensioner in Australia,
    and I am very interested in moving to Thailand. I’ve been watching JC’s
    videos, and am very interested in maybe renting a house in Chang Mai. My
    question is- Could a single woman reside there just as safely and
    comfortable as a man,(or, anyone else for that matter) ? My email address

  19. retirecheapjc

    This is a very detailed question to answer. This type of information is
    answered in more detail in the membership site along with other things one
    needs to know to consider whether it is a viable option. But you need a
    total for a retirement extension of 800,000 which can be income or income
    combined with a bank deposit as well. And yes many single women live there
    with no problems.

    Hey JC, guess what? My adrenalin is charged again, lol. After chatting to
    the girl at the Thai consulate, I was told there is a way I can stay in
    Thailand long term without having to do the retirement visa, or have a fat
    bank account. So here I come, lol. I hope I get a chance to meet you one
    day. Thanks for your help. PK.

    Hi JC. I am always amazed at the prices in Thailand, a house in that
    conduction where i live would cost at least £1000+ Somewhere like that
    would be perfect for me, and it would a great experience living in a Thai
    area, it would also help me with myThai as well, great stuff Keep em
    Coming, Neil.

    JC, You mention in this one that there is a maids quarters. What would be
    the cost to rent a maid per month, roughly. Thanks in advance.
