I don't have experience in your topic but maybe you can find informations and help in some web's sites.
Cost living in Punket is very expensive. Why don't you try another province are more cheaper but have same location like Phuket as Krabi and so on.
You are planing to settle up in Phuket?
You'd better spend a week there in Patong first and wonder around to see the most perfect place for you to spend your life time there.
Living cost might not too expensive. It's the same as in Bangkok.
Yeap, phuket's cost of living is pretty expensive considering it's a major tourist attraction. even a bottle of mineral water costs a bomb. patong beach is quite rowdy with the night life. krabi on the other hand is a bit isolated.
