    Any newbie want accommodation in Sriracha (20 km from Pattaya)?

    Hi I'm 34 year-old professional female who has a house to share in Sriracha (20 km. from Pattaya). Only female roommate preferred - the reason is that I see it's quite daunting for lady expats who first come to Thailand. I can be your roommate and I also would like to help you settle down. I can give you a ride to anywhere nearby, just help me with some petrol fee.
    I am a calm, friendly, easy going, and neat person and without being fanatical about it I do like to keep things pretty tidy and clean.
    Most of the time I stay home as my job is writing. I need a peaceful and quiet place so parties and overnight staying friends are not allowed.
    The house is air conditioned. The available bedroom has a small sized bed, a wardrobe with double mirror doors, a TV set, and computer desk. I have a dog, so you must be a pet lover.

    Location of the house
    12 kilometres from Laem Chabang industrial estate
    16 kilometres from Unithai Shipyard
    20 kilometres from Eastern Seaboard
    23 kilometries from Bang Saen
    5 kilometres from Saha Group Industrial Park
    5 km. from Pinthong Industrial Estate
    5 km. from Sriracha down town. 25 km from Pattaya. 1 km. from Motorway no. 7 – very convenient to Bangkok, 50 minutes to Suwanabhumi Airport

    Rental – 3,000 baht per week (a big bedroom with king-sized bed 3200 baht a week), 2 wks advanced payment; bills not over 200 bht a week if you don't turn on air-conditioning all day. Free internet (it’s down quite often though, but good enough for email checking.)
    Again this really suits a newbie to Thailand. You can start from here, and I don’t mind if you want to move out the next month.

    It all seems rather expensive, Angela.

    I'd look again at those figures. You're asking a lot of money for a room in a shared house (with temperamental internet, no overnight friends etc.)

    They'd have to be a newbie, now wouldn't they?

    Bear in mind that most newbies are going to start out earning only 30-35 k per month. With the rental rates you've quoted. almost half of the salary is going towards housing.

    12,000 baht a month for a shared house in Si Racha? Wow!

    Seems damned expensive.

    If you rent out both rooms, imagining that you only have the two extra bedrooms, you'll be pulling in 25,000 baht.

    This is house "sharing"?
    When being run out of town, get in front of the crowd and make it appear like a parade.

    It's a piss-take. Got to be. No responses from the OP for nigh on 24 hours, so... I'm game on then.

    If any 'newbie' (or whatever the latest infantile nomenclature may be) reads this ad... don't touch this 'offer' with a barge-pole. It's precisely this type of westerner that you'll become aware of pretty quickly here; the 'something for nothing' brigade.

    12k a month my arse. Fuck you and your donkey.

    I'm a tree in a forest, right? And then the company comes to cut me down, yeah? So I get together with the other trees and some of the bushes (some of them -because there are some evil bushes and that's a sub-plot I'm still working on.) Anyway, then we, like.... make a stand. With rock music. I've had a lot of interest already, so...quiet please, okay?

    as with any property, the key to finding the right place is location, location, location. Now, it may seem a tad pricey, but don't forget the advantages of living within 20km of 3 industial estates and 2 shipyards. With this sort of nightlife its proximity to pattaya could be overlooked.

    It's a bit like one of those fingerpost signs isn't it?
    Let me add a few more.

    Gee ange to the Fl...that's great...being a total newb to Thailand those landmarks have really pin pointed the locale for me...it just so happens that I've a love for industrial estates and shipyards and coincidentally, just yesterday, I was researching the Unithai shipyard on google... so now I know exactly what a shithole area you're in...
