What do you wish you'd known before moving to BKK? (Bangkok)


Hi everyone!

I accepted a job running a magazine in Bangkok, and will be moving to Thailand from New York City in two weeks. I would love to know what you wish you'd known prior to moving to Bangkok. Things you wish you'd packed (or wish you hadn't)? Tips on practical matters like negotiating for an apartment, opening a bank account, or getting health insurance? Any fashion / clothing advice for professional expat women?

Would love to learn from others' 'a-ha!' moments, so all tips are welcome and very greatly appreciated!

Looking forward to meeting you at an Internations event very soon,
