Your Guide to retiring in Chiang Mai, Thailand

Hello, I'm Hailey Hicks, founder of Land of Smiles Retirement Assistance, specializing in helping retirees relocate to Chiang Mai, Thailand, for a better life. I love my adopted country and am happy to share information that my Thai staff and I have put together – about Thailand generally, and Chiang Mai specifically. I believe no other resource offers the detailed information provided here: in depth articles and videos about visa requirements, healthcare, medical insurance, weather, food, cost of living, housing, banking, safety, transportation, beginner Thai language lessons, and more.

We look forward to seeing you in the Land of Smiles!
