Thailand

The kingdom of Thailand has been a popular travel destination for many years. The land of smiles is known for its glittering temples, fascinating architecture and long stretched tropical beaches - not to mention a friendly smile at every corner! To explore Thailand is an adventure, from the pulsating capital of Bangkok City to tracking the hills in Chiang Mai, it is impossible to get bored in Thailand!

Thailand, officially the Kingdom of Thailand and formerly known as Siam, is a country at the center of the Southeast Asian Indochinese peninsula composed of 76 provinces. At 513,120 km2 (198,120 sq mi) and over 68 million people, Thailand is the world's 50th largest country by total area and the 21st-most-populous country. The capital and largest city is Bangkok, a special administrative area. Thailand is bordered to the north by Myanmar and Laos, to the east by Laos and Cambodia, to the south by the Gulf of Thailand and Malaysia, and to the west by the Andaman Sea and the southern extremity of Myanmar. Its maritime boundaries include Vietnam in the Gulf of Thailand to the southeast, and Indonesia and India on the Andaman Sea to the southwest. Although nominally a constitutional monarchy and parliamentary democracy, the most recent coup in 2014 established a de facto military dictatorship.

Tai peoples migrated from southwestern China to mainland Southeast Asia from the 11th century; the oldest known mention of their presence in the region by the exonym Siamese dates to the 12th century. Various Indianised kingdoms such as the Mon, the Khmer Empire and Malay states ruled the region, competing with Thai states such as Ngoenyang, the Sukhothai Kingdom, Lan Na and the Ayutthaya Kingdom, which rivaled each other. European contact began in 1511 with a Portuguese diplomatic mission to Ayutthaya, one of the great powers in the region. Ayutthaya reached its peak during cosmopolitan Narai's reign (1656–88), gradually declining thereafter until being ultimately destroyed in 1767 in a war with Burma. Taksin quickly reunified the fragmented territory and established the short-lived Thonburi Kingdom. He was succeeded in 1782 by Buddha Yodfa Chulaloke, the first monarch of the Chakri dynasty and founder of the Rattanakosin Kingdom, which lasted into the early 20th century.

Through the 18th and 19th centuries, Siam faced pressure from France and the United Kingdom, including forced concessions of territory, but nevertheless it remained the only Southeast Asian country to avoid direct Western rule. Following a bloodless revolution in 1932, Siam became a constitutional monarchy and changed its official name to "Thailand". While it joined the Allies in World War I, Thailand was an Axis satellite in World War II. In the late 1950s, a military coup revived the monarchy's historically influential role in politics. Thailand became a major ally of the United States and played a key anti-communist role in the region. Apart from a brief period of parliamentary democracy in the mid-1970s, Thailand has periodically alternated between democracy and military rule. In the 21st century, Thailand endured a political crisis that culminated in two coups and the establishment of its current and 20th constitution by the military junta. Thailand is a unitary parliamentary constitutional monarchy under a military junta. Thailand is a founding member of Association of Southeast Asian Nations and remains a major ally of the US. Despite its comparatively sporadic changes in leadership, it is considered a regional power in Southeast Asia and a middle power in global affairs. With a high level of human development, the second largest economy in Southeast Asia, and the 20th largest by PPP, Thailand is classified as a newly industrialized economy; manufacturing, agriculture, and tourism are leading sectors of the economy.

When investing in New Nordic Group holiday resorts, investors buy a slice in two of the fastest growing industries in some of the most beautiful areas of the world, the real estate & the tourism industries.

Investing in Thailand

Many investors wouldn't even dare to think about investing in Thailand, purely because they might not have realized how much this country has grown. However, we are here to tell you why Thailand is the place to be (and invest) if you’re looking to achieve great success without risking it all.

As the heart of Asia, Thailand’s location entails great connections with other powerful economies, such as India and China. Thus, trade opportunities are abundant, not to mention convenient. In addition, Thailand is also a member of ASEAN — the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. As such, it’s becoming stronger, better and more successful each day, as the region expands in terms of industries and allows Thailand to stay in the spotlight.

Thailand isn’t afraid to expand its business ties either. The country is growing its economy every day by offering investors opportunities they could have only dreamed about. Furthermore, foreign investors are looking into the future, and they see Thailand as the place that could give them the ROI they’ve been after.

Additionally, one of the most important benefits of investing in Thailand is the fact that it still has plenty of natural resources. A skilled workforce and modernized IT networks, which are said to be even better than Malaysia’s, prove yet again that Thailand is one of the best-kept investment secrets. What’s more, communication facilities and transportation have been modernized too, and thanks to those changes, the living conditions, amenities, and infrastructures are drawing both investors and tourists in from all over the world.

Is Thailand really that popular among tourists?

We’ll let real numbers tell the tale of how much Thailand is loved by people all around the world who are looking for an adventure, a great holiday or some peace of mind. As stated by Reuters and emphasized by Pongpanu Svetarundra, government tourism, and sports official, in 2017, the number of international tourists surged by 8.8%. When shown in numbers, that percentage equaled to 35.38 million, which is more than 50% of the total Thai population.

This year, the country expects even better results. If everything goes to plan, the numbers will rise even more, possibly by 6%, and the now-strong baht won’t slow down in its growth, especially since it has made the mall, hotel and airport operator shares surge too.

These numbers are proof that Thailand is now the second-largest economy in Southeast Asia. However, what matters most to investors and to us is the fact that the holiday & tourism sector is a huge piece of that economic puzzle. It accounts for 12% of the total Thailand economy. Thus, it plays a hugely important role in the economic success of the whole country, and it’s one of the key players when it comes to its growth.

We haven’t left out another vital factor that makes investing in Thailand not just good for business but downright smart. The yearly increases of Thailand’s GDP should be taken into account too. In contrast to Europe, the UK, and the USA, which take pride in growth rates that are 3% max but usually 2%, Thailand’s winning the game by aiming for steady growth rates of 5–7%.

Chumphon

Blending in beautifully with the natural surroundings, the development consists of condominiums and spacious private villas. With a firm commitment to keeping the project green, vast areas of the landscape will remain untouched. Therefore, both residents and visitors alike can enjoy both the large expansion of vegetation and the stunning white sand beach, as nature intended. All restaurants, pools, and other facilities will be cleverly integrated into the existing environment, thus producing one of the most stylish and desirable complexes in the whole of Thailand. Many have traveled through this area on their way to and from Bangkok, or to take one of the ferries to one of the many beautiful islands; but few have taken the time to stop and explore this unspoiled, idyllic and unique province. When we first saw the endless beautiful beaches, where mass tourism had not yet set foot, we knew we had found Utopia - the perfect place for our beach project!

Pattaya

Sorry, sold out

Presenting all the projects we have successfully launched, most already built and some still in development. However, the Pattaya projects still remain very close to our hearts as it was here the New Nordic Group concept started. Since the start up, the aim has been to create a “city within a city” by developing a complete holiday village at all destinations. In Pratamnak Hill – the “Beverly Hills” of Pattaya – just between the big city, the beach and family friendly Jomtien, this vision is now starting to come to life. With 46 of 52 buildings completed, New Nordic Pattaya is a vibrant orange community with restaurants, shops, pool bars, swimming pools, services and facilities. We have our own beach that you easily can get to with our free shuttle service, we have an on-site travel agency for those who want to make sure they experience all there is to see in beautiful Thailand while staying with us and we even have our own on-site nurse!
