Thailand is a dream destination that many people would love to live in, and it can be easier than you thought. If you are considering moving to Thailand, then there are lots of areas of the country which may be suitable for you to live. Below are some of the most popular parts of the country that foreigners choose to live in, which may help you decide on where in the Land of Smiles you are going to settle.
Bangkok is by far the most popular area f the country for foreigners to live when they decide to move to Thailand. However, Bangkok is not for everyone, and it is a vast sprawling metropolis that some people can find too much to deal with when they are there. There are plenty of facilities available, including condos for rent and sale, and there is always somewhere to party in the Big Mango for those that love the hedonistic lifestyle.
Phuket is another area of the country that people flock to live, as well as go on holiday, and the island has plenty to offer people living there. There are a wide variety of Phuket condos for sale, and with so many options to choose from, as a buyer, you are in control. You can buy a condo in one of the livelier areas such as Patong or select one of the quieter areas of the island.
Hua Hin has been an area of the country that is popular with retirees, and over the last decade or so has seen a lot of younger blood move to the town. In Hua Hin, you have the benefit of living close to livelier areas with plenty of things to see and do, while also being able to live in a quiet suburb, but not too far away from all the action.
Chaing Mai is in the north of the country and does not have a coast so there are no beaches, but plenty of people still choose to make this part of the country their home. You are surrounded by lush green jungles, rice paddies and other types of farms, and you have the mountain overlooking the city, so it is always easy to orientate yourself. The air quality can get bad between January and May, with so many crops being burnt that there is a haze in the air, so it is not for everyone Chiang Mai.
These are just a few of the popular places too live in Thailand as a foreigner, but there are plenty more besides.
