Another example of Cost of Living in Chiang Mai

Sawadee Khrap

Another car repair – went for a short ride the other day to Doi Suthep, very long steep grade to the temple on the mountain and my car started to heat up half the way up – we got there but it was just about to overheat. – Today I took it in for repair:cae repair

New thermostat, new small hose and clamps, removed the radiator and had the cores cleaned and flushed – reinstalled – Whopping bill – $38   complete — try that in US —  Again I can only emphasize how great the cost of living in Thailand is – comfortable retirement is possible – and if your gay then its heaven with all the young men that prefer a older gentlemen as a partner or friend.

P.S.    In response to a comment – It’s SAHAMTER garage and they are located on the west side on the “Rachadamnoen Rd. 1 Soi up from Tha Phae Gate across from Wat Muen Lan. Excellent service – I see they repair other brands but mostly Mira’s – experts in Mira’s.
