As Thailand’s tourism demographics evolve and change, so does the Phuket property market. I remember a time when the south-side of the island was the most popular in real estate terms. Areas such as Rawai, Nai Harn and Chalong used to be the Phuket destinations with the most new development… however, times have changed.
Bang Tao, Surin and Laguna have become the most popular destinations over the past two or three years for new housing and condominium developments. It makes sense that these three mentioned areas are now seen as the best places to live for Phuket expats because of the quality of the beaches, relatively short distances from Phuket International Airport, and also the growing infrastructure.
If you are thinking of purchasing a Phuket property as an investment, Bang Tao, Surin and Laguna are excellent choices.
