Why Invest in Pattaya?
With more than six million tourists a year and growing by another million visitors every two years, Pattaya is Thailand’s premier tourism destination and one of the top resorts in Southeast Asia.
The profile of tourists has changed over the past few years. The number of keys in five-star hotels has increased significantly, pulling in higher spenders to the city. Better infrastructure of roads, schools, golf courses, hospitals and a vibrant nightlife are attracting regular visitors from Bangkok over the weekends and public holidays.
The opening of Suvarnabhumi International Airport, located nearer to Pattaya, has proven to be a catalyst in attracting more businesses to the eastern seaboard. The Board of Investment is regularly approving new projects within and around the boundaries of Pattaya, consequently attracting more skilled employees to the city. Pattaya is no longer just a tourist area; it is now an authentic city with permanent residents and communities of foreign retirees, local business owners and workers from nearby industrial estates.
With higher standards in accommodation and resort developments, Pattaya is redefining itself to attract higher-spending tourists in turn benefiting all the community.
Our experience in this city combined with extensive research of the Pattaya residential market indicates strong demand for centrally located quality units and a local limited supply. This is great news for investors.
