Buy land in Thailand
Thailand has everything you want from a holiday paradise – golden sandy beaches, year-round warmth, exotic cuisine and culture, friendly people and a low cost of living. It’s also easy to get to from anywhere in the world and has close and friendly ties with the West.
Thailand was part of the “hippy trail” from the 1960s and a backpacker standby since the ‘80s. Don’t think it will be in any way grungy though; these days it has a superb tourist infrastructure and the kind of luxury villas we used to associate with sparkling colonial favourites like Singapore.
