If you are trying to decide where to set up residency in Phuket, one of the places you must consider is Bang Tao. Known for its beautiful beach, laidback atmosphere and great choice of villas for sale, this is an area of Phuket that suits families and those looking for a peaceful environment while still being close to lots of restaurants, bars, international schools and shopping options.
Located on the sunset north-west coast of Phuket neighboring Surin, Layan, Kamala and home to the Laguna Estate, Bang Tao was once a sleepy village that is now known as one of the best places to live on the island.
Approximately a 30-minute drive to Phuket International Airport, and close to international schools, the area is great for families.
Because Bang Tao is also popular with tourists, this is an area that would make for a great real estate investment, to make back money through rental returns. There are many developments in Bang Tao that have rental return programs as part of purchasing a villa.
