Located approximately 150kms from Bangkok, Pattaya is Thailand’s most visited beachside destination.
After first becoming popular amongst tourists in the late 70’s and early 1980’s, Pattaya has changed beyond all recognition, following two decades of unimaginable growth and development.
Whilst not exactly idyllic, the reason why Pattaya remains so popular amongst tourists and expats is that it really does offer something for everyone, which in all fairness can not always be said for the likes of Chiang Mai, Hua Hin and Phuket.
And whilst it is also true that Pattaya still remains best known for what the Tourism Authority of Thailand describes as its “vibrant and pulsating nightlife”, the authorities in the region have worked hard in recent years to clean up the beaches and try and promote the resort as a more family friendly destination. Perhaps the jury is still out if this has been a success.
One thing that is true, today Pattaya attracts a more diverse range of tourists than ever before and is very slowly starting to outgrow its reputation as some kind of seedy beach resort. Of course, for Pattaya to change it’s reputation will take time. However, for young couples, families, business travellers, expats or retirees, as mentioned above, Pattaya offers something for everyone and this is also true for anyone looking to buy property in the area.
It could even be argued that Pattaya offers the the widest range of property for sale in Thailand, with options for just about every budget.
Whether it’s a new build development, luxury residence or budget condo, the variety of options here are at times staggering.
Over the coming weeks the Thaivisa Property blog will take a closer look at some of the different options available for those looking to buy property in Pattaya.
First, up let’s look at the lower end of the market and the range of cheap condos for sale in Pattaya, with options for investors, retirees, couples and just about everyone in between.
