Q Northern or isaan thailand…..long term stay hotel discounts????
has anyone information on long term (retirement visa) discounts which hotels in northern or north east thailand will allow? i am trying to establish if renting an apartment is really cheaper in the long haul………than haggling for a good hotel on a long term basis.
the amenities of a good hotel would, i assume, be better than an apartment complex……and any constructional problem would be the hotels, not mine
does anyone have experience of discounts that specific hotels have made in the past?
i am loooking to the northern regions…..or isaan….rather than bangkok or the south.
many thanks to all who reply……………..
A I don’t think any hotel or guesthouse care what type of visa you have They only go for the money. But first remember the new visa rules that only allow you to stay 3 month. Then you have to leave the country for another 3 month before you can enter again.
Border visa runs is not allowed anymore.

For long term stay – its sure more cheap to rent.
You can easily in Isan find appartments for rent. Prices is from 1500-3000baht/month – some furnished, others not.

That ‘Q & A’ sequence just above occurred back in 2006, so don’t place too much weight on it today.
Anyway, my intention with this post is not to limit myself to showcasing a few hotels. Some are most certainly going to get mentioned, but I hope to cover far more ground than that. I’m hoping to make the post somewhat entertaining…but we’ll have to see how that turns out ─ I’m just starting work on it, after all!
By the way, that leading photo of my wife was taken when she was suffering some sort of dermatological issue, and had prescribed medication applied to her face ─ I doubt that she would be particularly thrilled to know that I used the photo.

In den letzten Jahren erfreut sich Thailand eines bemerkenswerten Anstiegs in der Anzahl an Touristen, die dieses faszinierende und schöne Land besuchen.Thailand ist sozusagen entdeckt worden und Horden von Reisenden scharen sich mittlerweile hier, um die einzigartige Kultur, das freundliche Wesen seiner Bewohner und die herrlichen Strände selbst zu erfahren.Trotz dieses rapiden Anstiegs des Tourismus gibt es im Nordosten des Landes immer noch Dörfer, in denen sich während Hunderten von Jahren nur wenig geändert hat.Begleite den Autor zu seinem unbeabsichtigten sechsmonatigen Aufenthalt in Nordost-Thailand. Mach die Bekanntschaft von Fischern, Geist-Heilern und Thai-Boxern und nimm Teil an den Missgeschicken, die ihm unterlaufen, während er sich in der warmherzigen Gemeinde eines ländlichen Isaandorfes einlebt.Bisweilen heiter, oft rührend, gelegentlich tragisch – aber nie langweilig – entführt dieses Buch den Leser in das Herz des Nordostens und verschafft ihm so Einblick in eine traditionelle Lebensweise und eine Kultur, die heute in rascher Auflösung begriffen ist.

In recent years Thailand has enjoyed a remarkable rise in the number of tourists coming to visit this fascinating and beautiful country.Thailand has been discovered, and hordes of travellers are now flocking to experience the diverse culture, friendly people and delightful beaches for themselves.Despite this rapid increase in tourism, there are still villages in the Northeast of the country where things have changed little for hundreds of years.Join the author during his unexpected six-month sojourn in Northeast Thailand. Meet farmers, fishermen, spirit doctors and Thai boxers and share in his misadventures as he comes to terms with the warm community of a rural Isaan village.Sometimes hilarious, often touching, occasionally tragic – but never dull – this book takes the reader into the heart of the Northeast, and provides an insight into a traditional way of life and a culture that is fast disappearing.

This ebook is for the modern traveler — the bold, the brave, and those that want to use technology for new insights. Our quirky Frontier Town (Nakhon Phanom) is the perfect place to use as a base for adventure, research, exploration, chill-out and more:
* The most spectacular river-caves in the world are across the Mekong in Laos
* Ancient stone walls (equal to those in Angkor Wat) can be found meandering the Mekong
* Relics of the Buddha are enshrined in many of the Khmer-style temples throughout the region
* The Rua-Fai-Festival to honour the Naga-spirit is awesome, and the means for making these candle-lit boats remains unchanged for centuries
* Chill-out could be a day (or days) wandering among Mom & Pop restaurants providing deliciously healthy food, in unforgettable ambiance — and the modest costs will also surprise you
* Beautiful pictures to enhance each subject.
This part of Thailand, Isaan, remains remote. The formidable power of iPads/eReaders harness the technology, and Frontier Towns provides the information, so that visitors can enjoy unique and unforgettable days in Frontier Towns on the Mekong.
Hotels were populated with Thai tourists from somewhere close by. For travelers who want a slice of something truly “authentic”, an experience just like that of someone living right there where you are visiting, you really can do …

Are you an idle Eco-warrior, a pale-green Green, wracked with guilt as holidays approach and you re tempted by a flight to north Africa or a spa treatment in Czechoslovakia? Help is at hand. Alex Conti is much the same. He wants it all, too. So he has compiled a guide that proves self-indulgence can co-exist with a clear, or at worst clear-ish, conscience. Throw away your hair shirt. Leave your tepee and tent-pegs at home. You’re about to have a good time in one of the best Eco Hotels of the World and they’ve all been rated from one to five Green Stars to help you choose. Some are in safari parks, others are entire tiny islands, and two are on beaches in Alaska. If you decide to stay in a desert, shower in a bucket and eat your food by the light of a kerosene lamp under the stars, your conscience can be positively crystalline. But if you can’t live without fluffy towels, massage and proper marmalade, then there is hope even for you. Because the hotel that provides both the towels, and the marmalade, composts the orange-pips, eco-cleans the fluffy towels, and recycles its jam jars. In Zanzibar, when you spend your days kayaking and your evenings sipping drinks in a Jacuzzi located on top of a baobab tree, you re helping to subsidise marine conservation initiatives in the Indian Ocean. In South Africa, an eco-hotel has risen from a wilderness formerly overwhelmed by invasive species of wattle, and now pays for a teacher at the local school. In Canada, a 200-room eco-hotel has invested in geo-thermal heating. On every continent, grey water and rainwater are saved for plants and organic waste is composted. From hotels on stilts in mangrove swamps to nomad tents in the Sahara, your hosts will be separating waste for recycling (unless the goats can eat it). And everyone turns the lights out. This book proves that the tipping point has passed. Eco-hotels are The Way to Go. Now all you have to do is choose.
