As an expat mom living in Bangkok, I’ve listed Confidential Mommy Talks on ExpatBlog.com, a great resource for expatriates looking to relocate in Thailand. I’ve also been interviewed by them to describe my family’s relocation to the Land of Smile.
This interview provides insights about our lives in Bangkok. It is also a great way to get to know us better, so I’m sharing the first part of the interview on this post. To read the full interview, you just need to click on the “Read More” button below.
Here’s the interview with Ghada…
Where are you originally from?
In which country and city are you living now?
How long have you lived in Thailand and how long are you planning to stay?
We moved to Thailand in October 2015, so we’ve been living in Bangkok for four months. Thailand is a beautiful country and we’re absolutely loving it. It is very different from all the other countries we lived in and I’m taking the time to explore it from different perspectives: with my daughter, as a couple, by trying its cuisine, discovering its history, enjoying its great nature.
Why did you move to Thailand and what do you do?
We are hoteliers, so it’s part of our lifestyle to move around from time to time. Before moving to Thailand we lived in Dubai. My husband got a job offer in Bangkok and we both loved the idea of moving to this beautiful country, so we jumped at the occasion and immediately said yes to the offer. We’ve been many times to Asia for tourism and business, but this is the first time we live in an Asian country.
Did you bring family with you?
My husband and I moved to Bangkok with our two-year old daughter.
How did you find the transition to living in a foreign country?
We are used to living in foreign countries. We’ve been expats for a while now and moving to Thailand was a very easy transition as it has a large expat community. One thing I absolutely love about Thailand is that everything is easy around here. The language can sometimes be an issue as the locals don’t speak good English, but they always try to help as much as they can, and when they absolutely can’t communicate in English, they always find someone around them who can assist. Thai people are very welcoming and that’s where the country gets its reputation.
