I've been living in Nakhon Ratchasima (Korat), Thailand since December, 2007 and love it. Korat has a population of about 200,000 people so it's a fairly good size, but it is not a tourist town like Bangkok and other cities, so it is pretty quite.
Thailand is a wonderful place to live in my retirement years. Most things are very inexpensive here compared to the US.
Fern and I are very happy and having a great time together. Playing a lot of golf and just taking it easy.
