Retirement in Pattaya?

I just returned from a trip to Pattaya and Bangkok to visit my uncle who is currently staying there with his family.

My uncle is looking at the possibility of getting a retirement home in Pattaya for it’s happening nightlife and gorgeous sea view, and it helps that it’s only a 2hrs drive from Bangkok, where they are currently staying.

Being a fan of properties, naturally I went along with him. I was in awe with the good quality renovation and furnishing, cool facilities, nice layout, good view of the sea, and above all, the attractive prices of condominiums in Pattaya.

Here, do feast your eyes on the photos below.

The Riviera is simple gorgeous. It is my favorite development among the 5 projects I went to.

After Riviera, we head to Palm, which is even nearer to the beach. It’s beautiful as well and already fully sold.

This one is my least favourite, so I had forgotten the name of the development.

My favourite unit at Riviera cost around SGD110k for a one bedroom unit (35sqm), which requires a 15% down payment. There will be a 50% balance payment upon completion of construction, and the balanced 35% to be settled using a 30years mortgage loan.

The prices are really attractive compared to housing in Singapore. For a one bedroom unit, it cost about SGD800k which is a total turn off. Regardless, overseas retirement is just a thought. I’m still decades away from my retirement and I should focus on building my capital first.

  1. Hi Jasmine,

    Thanks for the beautiful photos! I’ve often thought of where I would like to retire to get away from the stress, hustle and bustle of Singapore. Still thinking about it though and yes, quite a number of years away still from that target!

    Happy New Year!

    • Hi Musicwhiz,

      I must have missed your comment and sorry for the super late reply.

      Happy belated new year and Chinese New Year to you! Hope everything is going well for you. Let’s all jia you together for a very comfortable retirement in our golden years, and yes, getting away from the city life would be nice for a change. 🙂

      Cheers!
      Jasmine
