New Thailand Forum – Thai Talk Forum

Thai Talk Forum is a new Thailand forum with a bit of a difference. The forum has only recently been launched and is still very much in the tweaking and work in progress stage but its membership is already starting to grow. The forum is dedicated to specialized information for tourists and expats in Thailand who may need advice about a whole range of things from hotel recommendations to visa applications and wedding bells. And if those bells clang not chime, there’s a sub forum dedicated to divorce as well. Let’s hope that one’s not too busy.

Thai Talk Forum is the brainchild of former Thailand retiree Mike Rose who is now based back in the UK after three years living in the Kingdom. Mike is also the man behind the popular and recently relaunched Thailand Blogs and has a vast knowledge and experience of the complications and issues both tourists and expats may face whilst holidaying or living in the Land of Smiles.

Below are the main forum topics and their sub categories which Thai Talk Forum and its members have targeted as key points to help make tourists and retirees stay in the Kingdom a more happy and hassle free experience. Further forum topics will be added as membership and ideas evolve.

Thai Talk Forum Topics

  • Visa Forum – Thai Visa & Residency, Thai Immigration, Thai Visa Resources.
  • Retiring in Thailand Forum – Sub forums include Health & Insurance, Land & House Ownership, Cost of Living, Marriage & Divorce, Driving in Thailand.
  • Thailand Travel – Member Trip Reports, Recommended Hotels.
  • General Topics – Buddhism, Thai Language, Thai Festivals.

Thai Talk Forum has an easy to join membership and despite its ‘specialist forum’ tag, anyone from a Thailand newbie to a seasoned expat can add and extract valuable information from the site. With Mike Rose at the wheel of Thai Talk Forum I’m sure it’s going to be a big success and the opportunity is there to join in from the forum’s formative beginnings.

You’ve got to bite the apple to taste the fruit, so why not sign up for Thailand’s newest forum and add your specialist information to Mike Rose’s Thai Talk Forum.


I'm a sixty-year-old Englishman living in the town of Swindon in rural Wiltshire and I have a real deep desire to retire in Thailand one day. If you don't have a dream then you won't have a dream come true.

    Hi Martyn
    Seems ages since I last left a comment here, although I do follow your posts via the feed.

    What can I say, except thank you very much for the article. Just what the doctor ordered.

    Perhaps I can just add a couple of things about the forum.

    The idea came to me as a result of the fantastic discussions I used to have when Thailand Blogs was at its peak. Great correspondents, with no axe to grind and no flaming. Sounds trite but it was a friendly community. I also like to think the blog was a useful resource too.

    So the plan developed into creating something that was useful, informative and friendly. I plumped for a forum since I figured that it was a way to get different peoples ideas on topics of interest to folk associated with Thailand rather than just commenting on my ideas on the blog. Plus I didn’t have to write all the posts 😉

    The way I have set up the forum is designed to make the membership limited, getting people on board who can really contribute something without all the normal c*** that you find on some forums. So if you want to join and share your knowledge on Thailand and life there, please be patient, you’ll need approving and have restrictions on what you can post in the early days.

    Sounds a bit draconian? Well we will see, I fancy there are some real good correspondents lurking out there……I just need to find them 😉

    So if you fancy sharing your knowledge on things that affect expats and visitors to Thailand, don’t have an axe to grind, then I look forward to approving your membership of Thai Talk.

    Mike – Thanks for dropping by and adding your personal views to the post. I believe Thai Talk Forum will be a big hit as long as you’re patient and let things slowly fall into place. Afterall, neither Rome or Thaivisa were built in a day. I’m very pleased to read your ‘no axe to grind’ quote because that’s what lets a lot of forums down. I’m happy to be a member from the onset and although I don’t have any experience as an expat I will offer help and advice when I can. I know a fair bit about Udon Thani and other parts of Thailand and its culture.

    Good luck to you and Thai Talk Forum.
