Pattaya has once again been revived as a favorite tourist destination despite the market slowdown in the past couple years. The government pushed forward with supportive policies, which have been attracting more cosmopolitans and sparkled a good sign for real estate developments in this area. Likewise, “THE BASE Central Pattaya,” launched by Sansiri, was born to cater brilliant experiences of living at the heart of Pattaya, merely 300 metre from the sea. The project is developed with the inspiration “Enjoy two views, two environments,” where the architectures expose both views of tranquil Wong Amat beach in the north, and vibrancy of entertainment lights in the south. Besides, there are facilities inside the project to cater admirable living experiences such as infinity-edge pool on the rooftop, basketball field, and lounge room with the expansive view of Pattay’s seascape. It’s the central spot of this seaside city where all aspects of lifestyle are just a stone’s throw to find.

* This average rent price equals to 7% yield rate, which is in a satisfactory rate

From on-site observation, there are many people who lease a unit out for a day (condominiums) with the average rent price at 1,500-2,000 Baht/night. However, the activities are not fully legal and the conditions varied on each project
