LGBTI people from China are increasingly on the lookout for property in Thailand. The places of most interest for Chinese LGBTI property buyers are Bangkok and Phuket, with many buyers claiming to feel more comfortable in these LGBTI-friendly cities than in their home country. Chinese buyers who identify as LGBTI account for between 5-8% of total property-buying inquiries in Bangkok, The Bangkok Post reported. LGBTI inquires are estimated to be around $50-80 million of the almost $1 billion of Chinese investment Thailand has seen over the last 18-months, says Chinese international real estate website Juwai.com.
