How are the prices in Chiang Mai compared to Phuket?

For condos...there is a better selection of under 30k USD in CM. And generally more expensive in PKT.

What did you do for a residency visa ? Only tourist ?

Why sell ? Are you tired of Thailand ? Where to now ?

Exploring my options, now.

Depends how much you are exposed to Vietnam or the Philippines. I've always liked Thailand, but since the 2010 red/yellow shirt protests, the 2014 coup and installation of the military junta, the 2016 death of the king, it's still considered very unstable by most foreigners. Locals should know better. My friend who moved to Bangkok 20 years ago (and went to AIT before that) just shrugs everything off and says she still likes living there.

Expats (or any locals) are good at that.

I lived in South Korea for a long time, and the North Korea thing always came up...particularly by those who were considering going to teach there. But when you are living there, it's just a complete non-issue that you don't even think about.

Same with protests you hear about happening in South Korea...or other seemingly volatile issues. When these things occur, you are aware of them, but you don't really experience them.
