Tawn has started apartment hunting in Bangkok. His goal: to scout out apartments that meet our combined criteria (mission impossible!) so that when I’m there in late September we can select a place.
I’m not being very helpful. I found a web site called Mr. Room Finder, set up by a Bangkok local who wanted a site that listed apartments that real people, not overpriced expats, could afford. So I send Tawn links from my searches, fully realising that I don’t know Bangkok neighborhoods all that well.
My recommendations are not always very useful. Like personal ads, these apartments listings are sometimes… generous.
We’ll see what turns up, though. He’s found a few places that look nice, have a decent location, and are teeny-tiny. But that’s the reality there, I think. Especially when we don’t want to spend more than US$ 400 a month on rent.
