Thailand´s reputation as a holiday paradise and exotic, colourful and freewheeling country is well deserved. Yet it is also becoming a hot destination for those seeking to find a new life in sunnier climes. The Thai economy has grown rapidly over the last twenty years and the new government of Prime Minister Taksin Sinawatra is heavily promoting Thailand as the business hub of Southeast Asia. The effects of the economic crash of the late 1990s are still felt to this day and consequently property prices can be real bargain. As the economy recovers business opportunities abound for the astute and well-informed investor. New visa rights have made it easier to retire to the Land of Smiles and government-sponsored projects are quickly creating the infrastructure for a comfortable sun-soaked retirement. Add to this an increasingly sophisticated, modernising culture, fantastic scenery, cheap shopping, wonderful food, and nightlife that is unsurpassed, and it is little wonder that Thailand is becoming one of the world´s most popular destinations for the long-term expatriate.
