Kept from the past:
Great flood of Bangkok, Thailand, 2011 — In case this ever happens again . here is how I successfully protected the inside of my house immersed in a meter of standing flood water for weeks, in hopes of helping others plug all their vulnerabilities. The damages from the immense flood to other peoples’ property was very sad. Valuable tips for the future, possibly.

The Thailand Guru author, Mark Prado, was on BBC World talking about the property market in Bangkok with BBC Asia Bureau Chief Jonathan Head. Mark has worked on many property development projects in and around Bangkok since 1995, and now guides expats on the most appropriate places to live based on their needs, preferences, and wide range of budgets. You can browse thousands of expat quality properties in the greater Bangkok metro region, houses, condominiums, and apartments in Bangkok for rent and for sale on our kkBkk.com property database website.
The menu at the top left should guide you quickly, or choose the Search selection here or on the floating menu. The next time you waste a lot of time (and/or money) trying to get something basic accomplished in Thailand, and after you consider the value of your time and productivity, then you may decide to contact us.
Notably, we see a lot of inaccurate information on the internet, some of the inaccuracies repeated in many places to give the same wrong information. It is apparent that sometime, somewhere, some respected expat “authority” gave inaccurate information which was subsequently repeated by other people until it became a widely believed “urban legend” — it seemed to be coming from multiple sources but maybe was just copied from the original “authority”. Many things you read on the English language internet, you should verify from Thai authority sources. Some is outdated, too.
On our Thailand Guru website, you will sometimes need to excuse the lack of artwork, because we have been focusing on text content and research, which is more important. (Don’t you wish more websites had better substance?)
