Thailand ranked in ninth place among the best countries for retirement. This recognition comes from the International Living magazine, which publishes an annual Global Retirement Index ranking the best retirement destinations.
Among the listed countries in the 2023 index, Thailand stands alongside Portugal, Mexico, Panama, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Spain, Greece, and France, and tied with Italy. Notably, Thailand is the only Asian country in this group.
The Thai government has implemented investment promotion measures to further enhance the country’s appeal. Establishing more transportation networks within Thailand ensures convenient domestic and international connectivity. These factors, combined with efforts to promote the creative economy, will contribute to attracting foreign investment in housing, as well as fostering job creation and income generation for the Thai people.
