That being said, perhaps you’re not interested in moving, but see Bangkok as being a potential investment opportunity. In which case, you’d be absolutely correct. Bangkok has long been one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, so buying a central condominium is a great opportunity to see a return through holiday rentals, whilst turning a delicious profit on top.
Or, if you’re not so fussed about the money, but simply have fallen in love with the place, then you’ll be all too aware of how such a big move can be incredibly daunting, particularly for Westerners who have never lived anywhere other than their home country. So, it’s completely understandable to be feeling overwhelmed by the prospect. Perhaps you’ve visited Bangkok several times in the past and you’ve fallen in love with the place. With such a colourful culture, bustling nightlife and a world-renowned cuisine, it’s difficult not to! But how viable is it to uproot your life and move to the other side of the world? More so than you’d imagine!
Simply put: if you love Thailand and the city of Bangkok, and you want to make a change, then what better a way than moving to such a fascinating and exotic location? Certainly, there is much in the way of research and preparation involved before making the move, but you shouldn’t let that put you off.

Should I buy or rent Bangkok Property?
Ultimately it depends on the type of property and what kind of visa that you’ll be on.
