Nah...we are so lucky....except for a neighbor three doors down who has three noisy dogs that bark at everything that goes by, the place is quite peaceful.  Almost too peaceful...but not complaining at all. It was a big adjustment living here after 5 years in Bangkok...without the constant traffic noise I stared at the ceiling for the first week as the quiet was unnerving.

 

Unfortunately you never can control who your neighbors are in these MooBaans. We are fortunate to have an end townhouse with a huge 4 meter high wall that separates us from the next village over so only one side connected neighbor and the folks across the  street (Tomboy/Pretty couple) leave at 6 am for work and don't return until 9 PM and shut down right then too. Next door neighbor single woman with a cat.

Down the street from my house there is one family that makes a huge racket. all the girls work the bar and they have parties twice a week. 

 

The houses either side of them are rented out for about one or two months at a time due to the noise.

 

Feel so sorry for the owners

already got one mate with a Marshall amp to boot!

 

Might give them a healthy dose of Deep Purple for 3 hours straight tomorrow (6am - 9)

3 hours of Smoke on the Water, will only work if you've had your amp 'tweaked'  in Pantip Plaza. Unless ( in which case I'm jealous ) you have one of these ....

None of these people ever seem to work.

We live on a very nice estate and our houses certainly weren't cheap.

I always think to myself 'how do these people afford to live where they do?'

If an estate then thee are rules and legally in Thailand there is a cut off time and a start up time. I think 11 pm and 8 am. Currently there are also outside restrictions after a certain time because of the emergency decree still in effect until July 31. Estates also have security guards and there should be a nominated person who is the Moo bahn rep.

Anyone else ever had experiences with nocturnal neighbors? 

I do but they hear my mouth and don't like hearing it after they reach the witching hour. I understand having an every so so often, but not more than once in 1 or 2 months tops.

I'm most intrigued by the pool party/porn shoot.

 

4:30am and in the pool with tripod and backlight??

 

the hell is that all about? 😄 

It's far from normal behavior I  know that much!

Yes, I feel for you - We live in a odd row of 6 odd townhouses in the middle of nowhere, we had a nice community - neighbors working in oil industry and manager at big C .. until one moved out.
 

Since then as neighbors, we had a money lender and his crew (who was harmless enough but just sitting outside until the small hours), a gang of kids who were dealing drugs - we saw guns and fighting, rolling back home at 3.00 - 4.00 am every night, followed by parties, we managed to get them out, but they were taken over by a guy who uses the house to store duty free contraband, so now we have pickup trucks. The guys seem to use the place to occasionally put the TV on full blast and crash out for a bit or bring back hookers and knock them about about. 
 

The house is in a discreet location, kind of place that’s perfect for petty criminals.

 

Now they are building opposite our houses - just our luck to meet the most industrious crew of Burmese builders in the history of man, they don’t stop banging from 7.30 until 5.30.

 

Time to move on from our little spot after 10 years.

How odd.

Get an electric guitar with effects pedal

 

Next , wait until noisy neighbors have finally gone to bed then throw open the windows and learn to play it on full volume. If you find a difficult riff you want to master just play it repeatedly a few hundred times until you crack it.

 

Hopefully this will prevent them sleeping until their body clocks reset to your time

 

 

Never done, but have considered a sound system for the garden and looped track of a dog barking......FULL BLAST......until they get the message.

that may be the next option for me mate. 

 

an acre of land in the middle of nowhere surrounded by a 15ft concrete wall, razor wire, shards of glass, search light, cameras etc. 

 

It seems to be the only way I will ever be truly happy here.

 

I have had various designs in my head for sometime.............double fenced with hungry Dobermans trapped between the two fences is something you might also consider.

My guess is Uni kids catching sunrise for a class project movie short film or a tik tok short, but you would probably be able to tell for how the people looked and how they were dressed, but if you say family then if not distant cousins that would be odd. I did meet a gal in CM a long time ago who did do porno shoots with visiting kid foreign guys and posted them. But it is possible as doing it for money as an income, and so when BritManToo mentioned that it seemed plausible. Now the drug dealers sound spot on and both could be related to that if always late night to early early mornings. .

That was renting.

 

We looked to move a few times from the town house but it was a great deal, and the house was really nice. Land is expensive down here and most houses are townhouses - chances are you are moving into the same situation. Wether it be market traders storing rotting vegetables in the car port or kids with loud bikes. 
 

We bought our own plot in Issan, we spent a lot of time finding the right piece of land based upon what we learned - big enough to build away from people and a big wall.

Nope, nearest neighbor 400m, everywhere dead quiet, and most shutdown by 9pm

 

Nothing moves again until 4am market.

Advantages of living in the sticks ! 😃

That can backfire, too, though. We stay in my wife's village at times. 20 homes, maybe. Someone's always 'up' making noise, it seemed. I never understood why the neighbors let them at it.

 

There a number of houses for sale or rent in my area, which is mostly very quite. Although, I heard there was one house a few blocks away whose occupants had those weird hours. No more, though. We've a security group that tamps down on such behavior (not confrontational, but they take care of business).

 

Thanyathani Home on Green 1 & 2 if you're interested. NC Group are the developers, but the houses are now listed with agents. It's near the Thanya Golf club.

We have landed lucky so far........all but empty condo, place to ourselves.......loving lockdown!!!

The other day I woke up early (04:20) and caught a glimpse of them by the pool, they seemed to have a camera and lighting setup and were filming. 

What is going on????

No reason not to be a nosy neighbor. You might get invited. 🙂

Possibly have their own "channel" for movies broadcast at that hour, shot by a pool,  could be quite lucrative, and wonder what is being done with people coming and going all night? Could be also lucrative
