    Watch the spend in baht, tips etc, enjoy and hope all goes well.

    Soffell has been the only one that's proved to work for me and family. It's also like a moisturising cream and so use it after showering and liberally through the day. One trip, my daughter went out beforehand with my wife and got badly bitten, I arrived with the Soffell and no further bites after :-)

    Had a further read of your posts and wondering if you are aware of sinsod, emergency travel fund needs, family expectations, "face", seasons differences, way of life etc that can end up being a steep learning curve and best to be prepared for/enjoyed?

    I was invited on a fishing trip once and was looked at a bit strangely when I bought a fishing rod and kit, when got there it was everyone in the water with hands and nets.

    Boots silver coloured bottle 40% strength DEET does me. It's cheaper if you buy from a Boots in Thailand.

    40% is far stronger than anything I've seen on normal Thai brands (they're usually around 12% and do nothing for mosquito nectar like me). The only trouble with it is that you feel like you've poured moonshine over yourself, the stuff is so strong. So my wife complains. But it's far better than being bitten.

    My initial experiences reminded me of The Waltons and Robinson Crusoe

    A ~50Km journey in a TukTuk from Udon to the Village during dawn break and the knocks on the head from the low door frame of the hong nam just added to the experience. Like Marmite and liked the experiences.

    to first state my situation, (this is long haha) and then hope for some advice.

    i met a beautiful lady through an app called Fuzd. we met due to my holiday upcoming in Thailand in September 2017. i wanted to learn basic Thai language and the lady wanted to learn english. we spoke for a number of hours instantly.
    as our chats progressed the lady offered to show me round Chiang Rai during my vacation.
    this holiday was originally booked for me and my ex-partner so rather than lose the deposit i payed the £3000 to go on my own. the more me and the lady spoke we began to gently flirt with each other, soon we decided to announce we are in a relationship, i consider her my long distant girlfriend, and then i decided to ask if she would like to join me on my holiday.. We speak on average 6-10 hours daily.. often ino the early hours of the night due to time difference.. she is educated and has her own busniess.. she is not after any money or assets (as warned by my family and friends)

    we eventually began to discuss marriage and her coming to Uk.
    .
    i know i have to get the affirmation document signed and stamped in Uk with Thai Translation. we have decided to get engaged in September and plan to marry 2018 september in her home place, with simple wedding. we have also discussed registering our marriage in Phang Nga or Bangkok while on our holiday.. some friends of mine say this is risky but our chats prove we both have found love. ( could this be a danger situation??)

    i have saved all our talks on FB messenger and on fuzd app.. we speak for 1 month now and have 26 days to wait until we meet and holiday together.

    we both want this very much and she has plans to work when she gets to UK

    My situation is that at present i am an Artist who is receiving Personal independence Payment (disability allowance) plus i am in receipt of Employment support Allowance (ESA) at the higher rate , plus my council Tax and housing benefit is also paid..

    we have now started to make video calls nightly before she sleeps and sometimes in the day. i have started to screenshot the calls and mesage chats to prove our relationship is real, because in the future we will apply for her visa to live with me in the uk. eventually i will not be on the benefits and will be back in work or making money via my arts.

    we plan for a second UK marriage at small registration office and in the future wwe will have children, this is the first time ive felt true love in my life and hope that someone here has all the advice we need to live and love together..

    any replies will be most appreciated

    thanks from tasle and Thantip
    Have you actually met this lady face to face?

    You’ve come to the party a bit late...

    Read post 48 and you won't have to read the rest. Jeeze.

    Good luck Tasle283!

    Nope, unless things have changed VERY recently, you actually cannot get the affirmation done in the UK. In your case it can only be done by appointment at the British Embassy Consular Section, Bangkok.

    Also, if you get legally married at a Thai amphur (registry office), you cannot then get married again in the UK. Marriage in Thailand usually consists of a traditional Thai ceremony (which I like to call 'Ceremoney' - you'll no doubt learn why some day) with the marriage being legalised at an amphur later. Some don't bother with the ceremony and just do the amphur marriage which is the only legally recognised method (both by the UK and Thai authorities). The Thai ceremony, although held in high regard by most Thai people, has no legal status whatsoever - in either country. A marriage registered at an amphur however, has full legal status but really is a non-event and seems to mean very little to Thai's.

    Some people have the ceremony in Thailand and then get legally married in the UK. That is not a route that I would recommend as it involves yet another visa at a hideous amount of pounds. I know of a few people who have gone down that route and have later regretted the additional expense.
