There is an excellent range of condominiums to rent or buy. Many people choose the hassle free option of renting, as there are no restrictions on foreigners renting property in Thailand. Properties are rented from the individual owners of condos within a block. Buying a condo is relatively straight forward and can be purchased out right in a foreigner's name unlike land in Thailand, making them a much more popular choice among the local expat community.
