However, there are common problems and scams which expats should be aware of. As with all countries there are dangerous areas which should be avoided and visitors should be wary in tourist areas as crimes such as bag snatching and pick-pocketing do occur.

Much of the advice given is common sense and many people would take the same precautions no matter where they are.The police in Thailand are considered to be very helpful, particularly when dealing with expats.

Thailand Makes UNDPs List of 'high achievers' in East Asia

The UNDP 2013 "Human Development Report" explaining Thailand’s receipt of the High Achievers award, attributes their achievements to strong national commitments to better public health and education services, innovative poverty eradication programmes and strategic engagement with the world economy.

The report notes that Thailand's success holds lessons for less developed economies, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa. Countries endowed with arable land can continue to create stable jobs in agriculture, which occurred in Thailand, whose employment pattern of the 1960s is comparable to that of many Sub-Saharan African countries today.

FOR SALE: THE TRUST RESIDENCE SOUTH PATTAYA

Determining exact figures for the expat population in Thailand is not easy. Most figures are estimates, but there are certainly hundreds of thousands who are living legally in the country. These are from all over Asia, Europe and the US. There are few resources which represent an official census in Thailand so it is hard to keep track of the population.

Bangkok is one of the most popular areas for expats, mainly because there are plenty of work opportunities. The city has a great deal going on for expats and the cost of living is very low there. Other areas of the country such as Chiang Mai, Pattaya and Phuket also have many expats living there. However, it is not only the busy areas which are attractive to expats.
