Buying property in Thailand is best done with the advice of an attorney as foreigners are not allowed to own land and there are rules with regards to transferring money into Thailand and rules which govern condominiums.
Visiting Thailand requires a visa if you are not eligible for a visa on arrival. The VOA has been changed over the past 3 years and has now been shorted to 15 days if you arrive across a land border.
