Thailand Expat

Thailand is the country with a considerable number of expatriates. Why do so many people choose to be a Thailand expat? There are many reasons: the housing is affordable, the crime level is relatively low and the living costs are low.

Not to mention the beauty of the country and the many attractions a Thailand expat can see. A male Thailand expat is also attracted by the Thai women. And we are not talking just about the famous bar-girls; the Thai women are nice, decent and attractive, pleasant, friendly and feminine.

A Thailand expat can rent a house or a condo eventually close to subway or Skytrain station for a safe and fast travel to his job or other destinations. Or, he can start with a condo and then rent a house.


A Thailand expat can’t buy a house but a condo, which is recommended only if he/she intends to remain in Thailand for the rest of his/her life.Renting is much more affordable.
