Swedish Visitors Double in Phuket

Calendar Jan - 12 | User | Comment 2 comments. | Page News

It was reported this week that the number of Swedish Visitors to Phuket has now doubled from pre Tsunami figures.

The Swedish Ambassador Lennart Linner ”We had about 200,000 visitors per year before the tsunami. Today it’s 410,000”.

With a population of only 9 million why is Phuket such a popular place among Swedes? the Ambassador thinks it’s the extradinary amount of good will that was created ironically enough in the Tsunami tragedy. He says ”The Thais were helping them before even helping their own, and for that, Sweden will always be grateful.”

It’s not hard to see why the many Swedish backed developments are proving to be very popular with property buyers. Is it the Swedish efficiency, skillful design, eye for detail, commitment or just a greater understanding of what people investing in Phuket property really want that makes these developments popular? Whatever it is, anybody thinking of developing or buying property in Phuket should definitely have a look at some of their developments.

I very recently visited one such Swedish backed development, located just on the outskirts of the Laguna area but still just a few minutes’ walk to Bang Tao Beach. Pleased with the superb location, I was eager to inspect the construction and design lay out, and I wasn’t disappointed.

What first impressed me was the activity on site, with the backing of the developer they are building out regardless of sales (maybe that’s why they’re getting sales) so investors minds can rest easy on the completion schedule. Next was the design itself , a modern contempory style with high ceilings, over sized doors and each condominium has great indoor and outdoor space, each apartment even has its own pool, which offers the very best in Phuket condominium living. Attention to the design detail is also very noticeable in the landscaped gardens. With 24 hour security, and an in house management program it really is hassle free for the overseas investor.

If  you would like more details on  the above mentioned property I would be delighted to help.

PS Germans, British and Australians have also returned in large numbers.

    Dear Barry,
    Yes, we can confirm Swedes love Thailand due to many reasons. First of all because of the people, than the sun, the food, the prices and the clear water.
    Since we made our investment at West Sands at Mai Khao Beach we regurlary enjoy at least two long visits every year. We have established a routine so we always book our return flight before we start our trip otherwise we would probably stay for ever!

    Dear Mats & Rita,
    Thanks, it’s great to hear why you love Phuket so much.
    I know what you mean about the return flight, we travelled to Phuket without one, best thing we ever did!!
