Where is the city, town or village? Bearing, Bangkok Thailand What's available for foreigners in regard to schools? Lot's of school here. ranging from small government to big top tier international schools. What are the costs of living there? Not too bad as it's the last BTS stop and the further away you are the cheaper the housing. Expect to pay more for gasahol or taxis as there isn't much to do. We can't even get a TV signal without a True box so have to pay for that. How about entertainment and social activities? Will I be the only foreigner in the city? Pretty much nothing in Bearing. Paradise shopping mall isn't too far away and civilization is just a few BTS stops away if your near the trains but expect to spend a lot of time watching tv in the evenings.. Shopping and such? Paradise is massive and has everything you need. Seacon Square is a bit further away. Not much within walking distance. Local Transportation? Songtaews if you can figure out where they are going. If not Motorbike taxis. Advantages of living there? Accommodation is cheap. a little out of town so spend less. Peaceful but easy enough to get your farang fix. Disadvantages? Shops are a bit too far away. Foodbyphone etc either dont deliver here or charge too much. If you don't have transport getting around would be a pain, especially in the rainy season. Final round up of the city, town or village a nice place for a family but i'd avoid it if your keen to party in the evenings and dont have your own transport.
