We recently took an early retirement "test drive" to Thailand. We've read your guide from cover to cover (figuratively speaking), and have spent many hours on your web site doing our research.

We spent 4 days in Chiang Mai and 4 days in Phuket.  Chiang Mai is a great alternative to the chaos of Bangkok. It has a great laid-back feeling that is more representative of "true" Thailand. We stayed at the Thapae Gate Guest House, across the soi from Top North. The price was only $10 per night, and the staff was great.

In Phuket, we stayed at Kata Sun Beach Hotel as you've recommended. It was everything you said it would be - clean rooms, friendly staff, excellent location, inexpensive. It is truly a superior value.

Being based in Hong Kong, we are really fortunate to have such great places almost at our doorstep. We're definitely now sold on early retirement, and will be making our preparations to early retire in less than a year.

Thanks again for all your inspiration and helpful information.   
God Bless.
