I don't think so, it is best investment. I think there are huge risk of loss, and the other hand investing in real estate is good and profitable. If you think that your property didn't evaluate its real price then you can rent it for a short period.

The Thai stock market is at an all time high and is and has always been extremely volatile. As with investing in any equity markets you need to do your homework and pay attention to your investments. There is no one stock in any market to invest in. You need to choose several. During this current period don't invest for the long term, buy in the dips and sell into the peaks. But you must watch and don't get greedy. As for investing in realestate in Thailand, unless you are a developer, forget it! Don't believe all the hype of property agent reports. If condos - there is an oversupply for all income levels in BMA and as the are complete noboby is moving in. Check the lights on at night along the BTS to confirm. No residents, no maitenance fees and well the building suffers. There is no liquidity in Thai realestate, particularly in new projects. There era of flipping new condo's ended when prices went over 100,000 THB/sqm plus ridiculous monthly maintenance fees. Renting out, for one of these new units - you won't get the yield for it to be profitable. You need 7% to make it work. You can get this by buying a unit in an older building where you can get great value at 45,000 to 65,000 THB/sqm. There are hundreds, if not thousands of these units available in Bangkok, you just have to look around. And guess what they are selling at the same price now as they did 10 years ago! These units are typically better builds and better fitted out and you would have a better chance of selling latter than newer builds as these are normally larger units.

Honestly, the Thai stock market is not the greatest right now. If you're already in Southeast Asia, many more of the neighboring countries have better prospects. I've heard people say that Malaysia is very undervalued, and Singapore's index only has a P/E of around 10.. which is extremely low, especially keeping in mind that Singapore is a developed country and has GDP that has grown more per year that that of Thailand.

Also, there is a linkage of stock exchanges throughout the region called "ASEAN Exchanges". Right now, the Thai, Malaysian and Singaporean exchanges are all linked with several more countries, such as Vietnam and the Philippines, joining in the next few years. So, it's possible to invest in stocks in countries throughout Southeast Asia while living in Thailand and having a local brokerage account.
