Perhaps you do not know the real reason why Bangkok is in danger. The city is sinking, not the oceans rising.

Plus the last flooding came from the river, not from the sea.

The flooding came from the high river flow coinciding with sea water flowing up the river due to the exceptionally high tide. The sea level has been rising and the land sinking.

Don't buy over an aquifer; you'd may have to really worry about sinking. I'd suspect. It is't the rising sea I'd worry about, buy near where water is plentiful.

I was reading some Thai history.  At one point Nakhon Pathom in Ratchaburi was on the coast.  The coastline is now very far away.

More likely a tectonic plate, but to say that it is rising at exactly the same rate as the sea is rising is a theory too far.

IMO the islands that are said to be sinking in the Pacific MAY be on a sinking tectonic plate.

 

BTW, only the north island is volcanic, so if it was a volcanic bubble the islands would be rising at a different rate, but they ain't.

That is interesting. I lived in Paraparaumu and worked in Wellington for 3 years and didn’t realise the South Island was not volcanic. Very beautiful though, as is the North. Plenty of shakes in Wellington and Paraparaumu though 🌋

It sounds like you are studying geography.   The whole of bkk is down in it.    It is a flood plane, and a delta.

Climate change is a natural event, occurring over millions of years

The only thing missing with the ongoing changes are the "millions".

 

I have seen the climate change during my lifetime, including during the short period of 20 years I have spent in Thailand.

 

If plate tectonic was occuring at the same pace (which is more or less supposed to be the case) we wouldn't be able to stand on our feet...and there wouldn't be any condos for the Chinese to buy, in Bangkok or anywhere else...

Climate change is already a significant factor influencing location decisions all over the world. Sea level rise along coast lines is but one impact. The agricultural sector will be impacted due to drought, more extreme weather events, ground water depletion, and invasive agricultural pests. Thailand's tourism sector, highly dependent on its beaches and coastal cities to attract visitors, will be Impacted. Its fisheries will be impacted due to rising and warming oceans. The cost of living will be impacted due to rising food production costs. Wildfire risk is already heightened - just look at what's going on in Australia. All of the above will put ever more stress on Thailand's social fabric.

 

I anticipate that there will be some in climate change denial who will dismiss and attempt to ridicule the OP's concerns, but in my opinion, the OP would be foolish not to carefully evaluate potential impact of climate change when making a real estate purchase decision.

 

Investment on Maldives Islands I would not recommend...... 😂
