Chinese are buying property all over Southeast Asia, especially in Thailand and Vietnam, reports PropertyGuru (6 April 2018). According to, a Chinese property website, growth in Chinese enquiries has slowed for all markets except for Southeast Asia, where Chinese buyer interest is increasingly focused on Thailand and Vietnam. Despite a territorial dispute over the South China Sea three years ago, negative sentiments appears to have subsided among the Chinese. “There is always some impact, because angry headlines tend to make some buyers cautious. However, buyer demand has nonetheless continued to grow strongly,” said Carrie Law, CEO of “Vietnam has catapulted from the thirty-third most popular country for Chinese international property buyers to the tenth over the past two years.”
