Hi, I'm Jeff Bocala. Welcome to Cha Nom Thailand.

Cha Nom Thailand is where I share all my experiences as a tourist in Thailand.

As a tourist that's been in Thailand for a few years now, I thought it would be an awesome idea to archive all that I've learned and experienced in a form of a blog.

This blog website is quite new. In fact, I recently published everything on here just last year (2019). I'm a digital nomad living in Bangkok, Thailand. I'm no writer (pretty bad at it, to be honest). I'm a software developer by trade.

Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about visiting or living in Thailand.
