Revel in Thailand and go find the best river market shopping in the ASEAN, enjoying fresh seafood streetfood treats while you're at it. The Land of Smiles also has off-grid mountain hideaways for expats, and party-all-night beaches for schoolies, the best learning institutions in ASEAN, and tremendous opportunities for regional start-ups basing their business there. Bad press warning expats not to look for trouble here is not without reason. Volunteer tourist police--westerners integrated with the local law enforecement to take care of rowdy partying keep excesses in check. Smile, Thailand is where opportunity is the best kind of trouble you want to invest in.
