I would say the Thai stock market. It is both easy and cheap to get started here, much more so than in the west. Of course you shouldn't just jump into the deep water, but either paper trade for a year or so to get an understanding of how it works, what news to believe (and more importantly, what not to believe).

Move to Issan and lend it out at the Thai 5%-10% monthly interest rate.
Most loans will now be guaranteed by the Dem party's loan shark buy back program.
What can be better then that.

I would go down to ktzmico, their office is just after Tropical Bert, 2nd road, Soi 6.5.

Get signed up for a brokerage account, you need to make a small deposit but it is not much, maybe 10k or so to get started. Then they email you recommendations every day and they give you instructions how to use their trading website.

Start by just following everything until you're comfortable you understand how it works. I'd suggest a year to experience the seasonal changes, but up to you really.

I think people in this form can only tell you what not to invest rather than invest. All i hear is how people lost money in Thailand
In my opinion it would be better to invest your money in the west if you can in some sort of safe funds

Depends how much capital you have, how much return you require (and whether you want a regular income or capital appreciation), and, of course, how much risk you are willing to take.

It is very likely that a well diversified portfolio of assets will better match your requirements than investing all of your wealth in a single asset class.

On the evidence of this thread (and I think you will agree) you are not an expert in this area. I suggest you consult a professional as a first step.

You remember Shakespeares words don't you.

To be or not to be : That's the question.

Pattaya_girl is a girl. You would have met her if you'd joined some of the Thaivisa meet-up's here. ;)

Don't touch anything with a bargepole you do not understand and do not under any circumstances consult any 'financial advisor' in Thailand.
Leave your money in the bank and settle for the interest offered.
If that doesn't interest you, open a bar.............................

Thanks for the heads-up on that trading service - I'm in the same position as the OP with regards to be clueless about investing in Thailand and I appreciate your advice about starting with a small amount and learning over the course of a year.

Owning a bisness is the best way to make money anyplace ..... Kasakorn gold fund is a pretty decent fund for those who want to invest as opposed to work.

It takes more than a year to lean how to be a trader , but losing less than more is a good way to start !

Buy a new condo not a 10 million baht unit but something for 1-2 million baht which many foreigners and middle class Thais can afford (bigger market for re-sale or rentals also). Buy off plan so it appreciates in value during the construction phase, and buy from reputable developers such as Q House or LPN.
