Of course you do!

Why is Buying Shophouses for Business Viable?

The rental returns market in Bangkok and every other major city in South-East Asia has been suffering over the past two years. And even though you can find some top-notch Bangkok condos that you can buy and rent out to make monthly returns, the market is currently very stagnant. During times like these, you need to diversify your investments to find other ways to make the most of your money.


If you currently have lots of cash lying around in the bank waiting for the rental returns market to come back to pre-2020, you might be waiting a while. But why should you miss out on investment opportunities just because the market has shifted? Move with the times and invest in Bangkok shophouses so you can rent them out as cafes or shops. Want to know how to do this? Let’s take it a step or two further.

What Business Can I Convert the Shophouse into?

It all depends on what area the property is located in. If you are thinking of converting the property into a shop, or some kind of convenience store, you might want to do that in an area that is in close proximity to condo developments and residential areas where ex-pats live. Somewhere you can tap into lots of walk-in business in a built-up area is a great choice.


If you wanted to convert a Bangkok shophouse into a restaurant, you might want to think about buying properties that are located in major tourism areas. Anywhere along Sukhumvit Road is a good choice, especially near the Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy area. Built-up areas such as Thonglor and Asoke are also great locations for a Bangkok restaurant. Simply make sure that the location of the shophouse fits the business you can make.
