      Hi,

      Me and two other guys(Demonic226/IvicaIliev77) have an idea of moving to Thailand or Philippines in the beginning of the next year(while it is fucking cold in our countries, and I wanted to start this thread in order to ask for some info about living expenses/good areas in those countries, other general info.

      All feedback is welcome!

      P.S.

      If there are any other guys that want to team up for poker flat - speak up!

      What games/stakes you play? For how long are you planning to stay? Are other locations (Macao) considered?

      We are all midstakes SNG players - I personally play 15-60$ 6max on stars.
      I am thinking of something like 3-6 months, maybe more, minimum 3.


      I personally don't know much about Macao, I guess others don't know much as well... If it is a good option we might consider it (beach/night life/ relatively low living costs are all important criteria :P )

      Macao is fairly expensive iirc. Part of Hong Kong. HK is generally very expensive compared to the other Chinese cities.

      I have some friends that did this and they lived like kings.

      I may be wrong, but our very own Erik Stenqvist lives (or lived) there, so he would be a good guy to ask

      Thanks for the info, Barry! I will try to get in touch with him.
      If not for kings, we can at least go for Dukes (of hazard) :s_biggrin:
