As a UK citizen where is good to go and live a nice life with low tax?
#31
I've just been to the local Thai Visa Run agency. I'm on a southern island.

They've had to change their previous one day visa run options. The one day visa run renewal is to extend your visa for another 90 days. This is not applicable to the visa-on-arrival 30 day tourist visa. It refers to business visas and the multiple entry visa that you can pick up in an office in London.

The previous Malaysian border check point is no longer renewing the visas as they did previously. Things change constantly here and new options always appear.

There are two new options:

1. A different Malaysian border office which requires a one night stay in Malaysia

2. A one day trip to Burma and back. It's a bit more expensive and requires a crisp, clean $10US bill 'fee'. The agency prepares all this. The total trip cost is 3500B

The driver said he doesn't like the Burma trip much. He didn't say why. I've booked it anyway, and will report back with any new info.

Any update in the topic? Can you tell anything about Croatia and Serbia? I live in Poland but not in Warsaw currently. Actually I don't like Warsaw and thinking about other country.

Ok great. I'm thinking about Croatia, so I would have some questions.
1) Are you IT specialist or other? Why have you left Croatia? No jobs in Zagreb? I'm database administrator and have plenty of offers in Warsaw, but was thinking how IT market looks like in Zagreb and Croatia? Is there many opportunities?
2) I'm planning to move to Croatia this year after they open borders and stay till December. I have opportunity to work remotely from any EU country. Plan is to stay in Zagreb till July, then July, August and September go to see side, and then from October till December stay in Zagreb again. Can you tell where are good districts to rent apartment? You know close to the city center, night life and day game. Also where are good places to stay during July, August and September, where party, night life and day game would be great? Meaning young people but no arabs.

Could you send some guides?

I'm not an IT specialist,  I'm an engineer. Left because I was sick of my job and felt a need to move somewhere, and Ireland is pretty easy in terms of moving. There's plenty of work in Zagreb, but I just felt like I need to try out my luck abroad, it was one of those now-or-never decisions in life. Most of my friends are in IT (coding, AI, crypto, all sorts of things) and they're all quite content with the local market (which is basically international).

Zagreb was struck by a serious earthquake about a month ago. A huge number of buildings in the old city center are damaged. From what I hear, that part of town does not look good now, large parts of it will have to be run down. So I would recommend you not to rent in the city center, but choose some neighborhoods in a walking distance from it. Neighborhoods like Vrbik, Maksimir or Trnje are quite decent and in the walking distance of the center. Also, public transportation is pretty decent, if you're anywhere near the center you don't need a car, and if you get shitfaced over the weekend, Uber and several other taxi companies are there for you. Fortunately, not too many Arabs in Zagreb, and those that are there you can meet at any location so there isn't much of a difference between neighborhoods in those terms.

There's many party places in town, most of them are in the center. In Croatia there isn't really an institution of a pub, places are pretty much divided between subcultures and social classes, so if you decide to move there, I'll be happy to give you some further guidance on where to go out and where are some nice hunting grounds in town.

My personal place on the seaside is definitely Zadar. Small enough to walk/cycle anywhere, you can swim at the very center of the town, yet a million tourists all over. Also, it has great ferry lines to some lovely islands.

Generally, Zagreb is a fun town full of pretty girls, and as a foreigner you'll probably do well there. But don't expect a pussy paradise or very low prices, it's quickly catching up with the west.

ETA: Beware - Croatia does NOT have low taxes.
