This page includes all the exclusive content for readers who support us on Patreon. It contains the most practical advice to help you set up and live your life as an expat in Thailand.
The main difference between our exclusive content and the guides on our website is that our exclusive content leads you step-by-step and points out directly which solutions you can use for any challenge you face in Thailand.
For example, if it’s about finding work, we point out the exact places you could check out for specific job industries. If it’s about visas, we point out to the exact visa you can get.
If it’s about hospitals, we point out the hospital you can go to that provides great medical treatment at great rates.
Keep in mind, this is not all the exclusive content we have. We add new content every month that gives you insider advice you won’t find on ExpatDen or anywhere else.
We also offer a personal assistant, meetups, and advice to higher-tier supporters.
To get access to this exclusive content, support us on Patreon and choose your tier.
Doing so helps ExpatDen continue to exist, create and publish free, longform guides on living, working, retiring, and starting businesses in Thailand without ruining your reading experience with ads and banners.
