Pattaya is a popular and thriving city a short distance south of Bangkok which is both big enough to not be a backwater and small enough for it to be crossed from end to end in about an hour. In this small space is packed a greater density of nightclubs and party spots than anywhere else in Thailand. There is also plenty of property for sale in Pattaya.

A boom in building has led to a widespread availability of houses, condos and apartments for rent or purchase in and around Pattaya at surprisingly reasonable prices. Many of the properties are built and furnished to European standards, making buying a property in Pattaya a relatively safe investment and, with the continuing popularity of the region, it is likely that the value of your property will go up.

There are some tricky bits of bureaucracy to deal with when buying property in Thailand, making it extremely advisable to work through an experienced company used to dealing with such matters. With that dealt with, your only difficult choice is what to buy and where? Would you prefer an expansive house in East Pattaya, a spacious condo in the centre of the city, or a comfortable apartment in the heart of Beach Road?
