Thanks to a huge boom in residential construction around Pattaya, there is plenty of choice when it comes to looking for a house for sale. Pattaya itself is too crowded to find your own little palace, but there is plenty of opportunity in East Pattaya, with numerous gated communities offering extra-ordinary properties at prices lower than you would pay for a former-council house in the UK.

For a surprisingly low price, you can have several spacious bedrooms, a private swimming pool, and a life far from the noise and crowds of Pattaya while still being close enough to enjoy the perks of this expatriate’s paradise. There are some pitfalls to actually buying property in Thailand, including some considerable bureaucracy, but a company with experience in property deals will be able to handle this with ease, leaving you with just the difficult choice of which fantastic house do you want to be yours.

Houses far from the madness of Walking Street are particularly popular with those wishing to retire overseas. If the idea of a relaxed life in the Land of Smiles is your idea of heaven, look at the houses for sale in Pattaya.
