Flying the flag for Thailand in China

Andrew Batt, the Founder and Editor of ThailandProperty.News, was this week invited to become the only current expert contributor for Chinese website Juwai.com.

The Mandarin language website is the one that Chinese buyers searching for international property will turn to when researching and looking for overseas property.

Last year, Thailand was their fifth most-popular destination for Chinese buyers.

Back to the news, and in this week the fourth-year anniversary of the current Thai government talking power was marked by a small protest earlier in Bangkok earlier this week.

Those images were seen around the world, maybe not as much as on previous periods of instability, but they were still seen.

And they will remain in the minds of potential property buyers and investors for a long time, despite the fact these were a few people protesting in a very small part of a very large city.

That was the essence of the first column which appeared in Mandarin for Juwai.com, reminding Chinese buyers that their potential property purchases should not be impacted by what they see on television or read in newspapers or on websites.

With Chinese buyers and investors being the single most important foreign buying nationality in Thailand right now, we cannot underestimate the importance of factual and unbiased information from a trusted source.
