Thailand based forums are most often a waste of time. I can’t think of more than 2-3 which are worth a minute of my time. Worse, reading some of the posts in these forums can leave you questioning your fellow man. I’m about to tell you about one Thailand centric forum many have found priceless, and most have found comfortable. The Thai-Falang Board.
The Thai-Falang Board has been on-line over ten years. “Hono” started it back in 1999 if I remember correctly, and yours truly has been a co-host of this forum nearly as long, with a couple others serving as moderators. And it is well moderated.
The focus of the Thai-Falang Board is to provide community and assistance to those in serious relationships. Usually this means western men in a relationship with a Thai women, but we’ve seen it the other way around as well. Most of our members are American, but we welcome and help anyone.
There are sections to help members network, and in fact there have been several member get togethers over the years where the members have met up in a desirable location over a long weekend. We have another coming up soon.
Other sections discuss relationships, culture, news, language, and perhaps the most useful to the most people is the visa sections. In the visa sections you’ll find many personal accounts of visa processes from the start through the finish and all the process entailed.
You can learn what forms you’ll need, the timelines of the different service centers, and you’ll find a lot of discussion on the many issues we face depending on our partners circumstances, to the choices we make because of them. Several of the members are very knowledgeable on these processes and gladly offer what help they can.
The Thai-Falang Board is a small community, a board where everyone knows your name. Yet, they welcome newcomers with enthusiasm. What you won’t find is flaming, foul language, or heavy animosity of any kind. Hono is adamant about these policies and he’d rather close down the board than have it lapse into the chaos and rude decorum of so many others.
Hono and crew invite you to stop by and check out the Thai-Falang Board. Maybe you can get some of your questions answered, or maybe you can help answer a few yourself. If you’ve been disappointed with other Thai-centric forums because of their hostile nature, you’ll love the Thai-Falang Board. We’ll leave the light on..
Until next time..
