Developers from north to south of Thailand applauded at the 16th PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards

The Kingdom’s most prestigious awards programme returns to give distinctions across 37 categories

Supported by IHI, JLL, Mitsubishi Electric Kang Yong Watana, and Bathic, the event gave distinctions to great developers, designs, and projects across 37 categories.
