Bangkok Podcast 68: Korn Chatikavanij

On this episode of Bangkok Podcast, we are very happy to be joined by Korn Chaitikavanij, Thailand’s ex-finance minister. Although his Democrat party lost Thailand’s most recent election, he is still an MP and is a high profile member of the Thai political landscape.

Khun Korn talks to us about what it was like running in the election, which was one of the most fiercely contested in Thai history, and what his thoughts are now that his party is now the opposition. Tony and Greg also ask his opinions of the current mess in the US financial markets, and get his views on what constitutes an acceptable protest. We also discuss how expats who are moving to Thailand can best protect their assets and maximize investments, and where he recommends people go to find Bangkok’s best street food.

Don’t forget to check out our sponsor Village in the City, a great new company that takes old, run-down Thai houses and fixes them up into trendy lofts and condos with style. If you’re looking for a funky, well-built place to live close to downtown, check them out.

Come join us on September 10, 2011 to say goodbye to Bangkok Podcast. We are going off the air and we’re inviting our audience to join us for dinner at Basilico Pizzeria on Sukhumvit Soi 33 at 7:00 pm. Please RSVP on our Facebook page.
