Kathu has been a popular residential area for expatriates for a number of years, due to its affordable villa prices and close proximity to Patong, without being too close to the hustle and bustle. With its golf courses at Loch Palm, Phuket Country Club and Red Mountain, and just a 10-minute drive to Central Festival and Phuket Town, could it get any better for those looking to buy a villa in Kathu? In short, yes!
There has been much talk and a myriad of speculation over the course of the past year or two in regards to the construction of the Patong Tunnel, which will be an underpass link from Patong to Kathu, set to alleviate the traffic problems that sometimes blight the area.
One thing is for sure, the tunnel, with construction expected to start in 2015 and be completed in 2018, will push up the house prices for those who already own villas in and around Kathu.
